Rabbit Beach Lampedusa, Sicily

Rabbit Beach Lampedusa, Sicily So travel giant Trip Advisor voted Rabbit Beach one of the best beaches around the world, and I can totally see why. Nestled in the island of Sicily, you know the Italians know how to enjoy life when they have such a beautiful place to relax. The sands look golden, and the water is clear, pure heaven!


Crane Beach, Barbados

Crane Beach, Barbados It doesn’t get any better than this, does it? Barbados is Rihanna’s home, and we all know she’s an island girl at heart! Taking a look at Crane Beach, it’s easy to classify it as one of the best beaches, and we’re betting that our girl RiRi has chilled out here many a time!


Whitehaven Beach, Australia

Whitehaven Beach, Australia Australian natives know this beach well, and would probably agree that it’s hands down one of the best beaches ever. The way the sand swirls, the fact that it was voted the cleanest beach in in Australia, and how it’s only accessible by boat from the mainland, all make this beach one of the prettiest, and probably most relaxing!


Maya Bay, Thailand

Maya Bay, Thailand This is one of the most photographed beaches in the world, and looking at it now, it’s not hard to see why! Thailand itself is stunning, and this beach surely attests to that. This beach has been said to look like paradise, and any beach given that title has to be one of the best in the world!


Gardner Bay, Espanola Island, Ecuador

Gardner Bay, Espanola Island, Ecuador The best beaches aren’t always about white sand and clear waters (although that greatly helps), because if you can come across a beach that has sea lions that just chill out on the beach and around the shore, how can you not want to visit it? Plus, this beach is one of the oldest of the Galapagos Islands – approximately 4 million years old! I wanna go!

This place is stunning, and I can’t wait to visit one day! Without a doubt, one of the best beaches ever!

Anse Source D’Argent, Seychelles

Navagio Beach, Greece

Navagio Beach, Greece Also known as The Shipwreck, or Smuggler’s Cove, this is one of the most famous beaches in Greece and one of the best beaches around the world. This place is lined with limestone cliffs, stunning clear beaches, and attracts thousands of visitors every year. I’d like to be one of those visitors one day!


Mali Bok, Croatia

Mali Bok, Croatia Some of the best beaches in the world are also some of the least accessible. Mali Bok may not be the easiest place to get in to, but I promise you it’ll be worth it! For those of you who love adventure, the mere fact that there’s only one staircase down to this beach is enough to tell you the level of adventure you’ll be getting!

Don’t get me wrong, a beach is a beach, and with almost any beach you go to, you’ll have a great time! But for those special days when you want to go to a beach with a little bit more flair and fun, these places are the ones you can go to! Tell me ladies, am I missing any other amazing beaches?
