Since this beautiful earth is made up of 71% water, it is quite easy and difficult to pick out the most gorgeous location to visit. From Porto Rico, Hawaii and Thailand, there is so much to “Sea”!
So here are the best beaches to visit from my experience and general user feedback:
El Nido, Palawan, Philippines
The Philippines is a country which is surrounded by many little islands that have one of the best beaches in the world! its natural beauty is far more encapsulating in reality rather than on your computer screen! El Nido is a small island in the municipality of the Philippines, which is famous for its uber clear blue waters, white-sand beaches, and an overdose of scenic views and coral reefs.
One can choose to stay in the central area of El Nido which comprises many budget-friendly hotels and hostels. You could also explore Islands nearby such as “Shimizu Island” which is refreshingly bountiful in its inhabitation of various Fish, beautiful multicolored fish! One cannot miss this.
If relaxing is the only thing on your mind then “Miniloc Island” is just the place, it is popular for calming lagoons and sites quite a bit of tourist attraction. El Nido tops our list of best beaches to visit post-COVID trauma.
Reethi Rah, North Malé Atoll, Maldives
For the dystopian tropical dream Island one should visit one and only Reethi Rah Island. This place is straight out of a Hollywood film and in fact, many celebrity shoots do take place here.
Surrounded by impeccable shades of blue and green as far as one’s eye can see, this spot takes a killer jab at being the number 1 luxurious relaxing place in the Maldives.
The Island has been designed to indulge in the beauty of nature and cooling waters, with fantastical suites residing on top of the water and incredible walkways for one to enjoy the true tropical vibe. For that reason alone, this has made it to the best beaches to visit list :). The beach is just at another level.
Honokalani Beach, Wai’anapanapa State Park, Maui, Hawaii
Let’s spice it up and explore one such unique beach in the world and that Honokalani Beach in Maui, Hawaii. Every time anyone talks about Hawaii, one must imagine a tropical paradise, fine sands, and the shining sun.
Honokalani Beach is just that except for incredible Black sands and a thick forest providing ample shade from the bright sun. This beach is a hot spot for tourists as the contrast between the black sand shore and the deep blue water looks mesmerizing.
Truly a must-see destination for anyone who wants to be part of a real-life POSTCARD! Situated in the Waiʻānapanapa State Park, Honokalani is surrounded by nature which means, forest hikes, long walks on the lava deposited coastline, blowholes, freshwater pools, and cute cafes and much more!
You may wonder why a beach without clear white sand makes it to the list of beautiful beaches, especially the best beaches to visit. Well the reason is it is unique and at the same time, it is very charming.
Elafonísi, Crete, Greece,
Gifted to us from the Gods itself, Elafonisi beach is a solid diamond in the contest of best beaches to visit in the world! The crystal clear waters of this little Island have propelled itself to become a protected nature reserve.
The calm and cool waters in Crete makes this place uber-luxurious, one can walk in the shallow waters and even sit on the naturally submerged rocks and just gaze at the beautiful site. Since it’s a small island one would find many tourists backpacking and taking road trips from Chania Old town, a well-connected area that offers busses, taxis and rental cars to travel to Elafonisi.
