Maybe from a surfers point of view but a 1 beach has to take many things into consideration sure they covered other things but the beach is in no way beautiful to look at. Also, a niche left out of this list is a good beach for coastal wildlife viewing. During breeding season now , you can only see them via park ranger guided walks. There is another large, and growing, breeding colony of northern elephant seals on the central coast, too, just north of San Simeon.
The area is fenced, but the boardwalk takes you within feet of the enormous critters. There are always docents. Lots of various seals, sea lions, sea otters, and sea birds of every description abound within the area. Enormous is right. It appears to be part of back and forth conversation. I have to agree with Dalek I was in Esperance only last week, and although it was the school hols, most of the beaches were relatively quiet. Yes, Twilight beach is a gem, with clean white sand, crystal clear water, gentle waves, a sheltered bay, rocks to scramble on, and a dinosaur skeleton for good measure.
Im from san jose about an hour from Santa cruz and the beach is not beautiful let alone the best. Totally agreed. As for Santa Cruz area beaches, Capitola is the best, the most hip. Hmmm, French much?

My Favorite are in Rhodes Greece Lindos unbelievably beautiful surroundings or Prassonissi Beach where the Mediterranean meets the aegean…ah, looking forward to this years holidays :. Enjoy your holiday whereever you will be. Good List but it is not a comprehensive list of the best beaches in the world..
I did however expertise a few technical points using this web site, since I experienced to reload the web site lots of times previous to I could get it to load correctly.

I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Ensure that you update this again soon.. Um, seriously? Best beaches in the world and not one is in Australia? Agreed, I was there in November. My mother is from Rio de Janeiro, I have never seen topless girls in those beaches. Topless sunbath is not even legal in Brazil unless in nude beaches or private areas. Entries listed a beautiful but there are more that could be added. It cracked me up, Santa Cruz? Over Hawaii and Miami?! Its a beautiful beach, of course, but the water is always too cold to go with your bikini in.
I know Brazillian chicks who prefer Bali over Rio. No kidding! Really, maybe the auto censor ought not be so sensitive ;. Who even cares about beaches? Lame list. Ive read listverse everyday for the last 2 years. The quality of lists sure have declined in recent months ….
Oh no, there's been an error
Sorry that my first ever comment is a negative one. I am now inclined to visit the Ocracoke Island in North Carolina. It looks nice and secluded, and the weather looks slightly overcast in the picture which is a plus for me. Beaches are what this country is known for.
Disappointing list. BTW — the picture of Ocracoke Island is awful!
Terrible pic, but Ocracoke is amazing. Beautiful serene place. Australia has over 30, km of coastline, incorporating over 10, beaches… the most of any country on the planet. If you look past the obvious Bondi in Sydney and Bells in Victoria , you will find such pristine examples as Cable Beach, near Broome in Western Australia, Whitehaven in Queensland and Wineglass Bay in Tasmania… all staggeringly beautiful, and this is merely scratching the surface.
And a nod to NZ as well, some stunning examples over there… check out Cathedral Cove on the Coromandel Peninsula… just heavenly. What about Sandy Hook in New Jersey? Meatheads with roid rage! Floozies with goofy nicknames! Trash on the beach! Annoying seagulls! Stupid locals with a combative attitude!
Hoods breaking into parked cars to steal stereos! Overpriced crap food! And medical waste washing ashore every other decade! Still have it. Oh, and the Horseshoe crabs coming ashore like prehistoric aliens. Many a picnic at Sandy Hook. Have to say, most of my ramblings — and picnics there were years ago, in the early 90s, and usually always in the early morning, just after the sun came up.
Those are my genuine memories of that place. It just had a magical quality. But being young and in love at the time and enveloped in the post-dawn light along that beach, well perhaps it was all a mirage, and the beach was actually filthy and covered with discarded needles and tangles of trash? Truly, I hope not. What about myrtle beach, south carolina?
Theres plenty of stuff to do here too. Its like a mini las vegas. Myrtle Beach is a tourist trap. Always a pointless comment like this. I live in Australia and I have at least 10 beaches within 15 minutes of my home that are nicer than these beaches!! Nice list but why would I travel halfway around the world to go to the beach when I live in a state with miles of freshwater coastline?
I agree with about 4 of these beaches, but not all. There are way betters ones that people had listed in the comments. Nice list. I like how you mixed in some well known with some lesser known beaches. All are beautiful I am sure. And you could have a list of the top beaches and still people would have another example they believe should be included. No Australia, no NZ, no maledives, no spain, but 4 american beaches???????
Hahaha typical american. Your not the center of the universe. How is miami beach beautiful??? Because there are famous people??? Because there are big skycrapers??? We surely have a different definition of beautiful. Ha ha — this was in response to a very poor taste comment. The comment has been removed but my reply is still here! About 3 nice pictures, the rest is underwhelming. I would like to pit my 2 cents info for the eastern shore of lake Huron. There are so many great beaches on Earth it would be incredibly difficult to pick just 10 unless you are an absolute expert when it comes to beaches and have visited literally thousands of different beaches.
Oh no, there's been an error
This list is no good. I know about 5 beaches that can top this list and they are all in the Caribbean! Martin, Bermuda, etc. There are many fish and sea turtles but no jellyfish. I have even seen a few seals on shore! Occasionally there may be Portuguese man-o-war but I have never seen them. Poeple are very good about picking up their trash too. I have also noticed that the waters near Sardinia off of Italy are super clear as well. I may not have been to many beaches in my life, but I certainly feel I have the ability to list a few that surpass a number of these.
Very unresearched list in my opinion — where the hell is Whitehaven Beach in Australia?? I must admit that I am quite upset at most of these posts. L Rosales made it very clear that it is subjective and that the list is in not in a particular order.

Just 10 beaches. Do not remove this list J Frater. It is a reminder that some of us who wish to share our opinion should stand our ground. It is only an opinion. Having said that, the posters have made some fantastic suggestions for holiday destinations that I would never have fathomed. Thank you L Rosales. Not a very well-researched list. The inclusion of Miami Beach and Santa Cruz killed it for me, as those are more cultural hotspots than beautiful beaches. This is why Mexico and the Caribbean have traditionally supported the Castro regime, knowing full well that if Cuba were open to US visitors, tourism dollars would be diverted from their economies.
Very poor list! And were I live, I can show at least 10 beaches much more interesting than the top five of this list…. Also forgot a fantastic beach in Japan called the Star Sand beach. Its bequtiful and unique. And the lack of Australia over America is just annoying. Whata crap list. Get outta the States dude. Nothing fromThailand? Nothing from SE Asia except Boracay?
Nothing from the Caribbean? Utter crap. Santa Cruz 1? No australian beaches? A little disheartening. I may be a little bit bias, but im sure any of the beaches in newcastle nws could easily make the top ten. Newcastle beach has the finest sand in the world, imported to hawai its so wonderful. Dixon park beach is usually deserted and completly unspoilt and the sand dunes of stockton beach make for excellent camping and a great way to spend the aftrnoon. Tulum is nice but the pic you put is the rockiest part of it.
Fun mixed in? So allow me — The Main Beach and Boardwalk is an oceanfront amusement park, and features, among other rides and attractions, one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in the U. The picture used in the entry is just a part of a building that is much more attractive albeit gaudy in context, and that contains the circa vintage yet still operating Looff Carousel merry-go-round.
Here is a way better shot of the whole Boardwalk, taken from the end of the Municipal Wharf right next to it. The wharf alone is a popular fishing spot, and also has some restaurants on it, etc. Lol, scratch that part of my post…pretend it never happened…. This list is awful. The Bahamas and islands in the caribbean have far more superior beaches than those on this list.
Absolute travesty. Your point about the lack of an Aussie beach or two is totally justified, but could you have strained to force it just a little more?
