Known for its white sandy beaches, coral reefs and incredible steep karst cliffs, El Nido is home to around 50 beautiful beaches. The area has a selection of dive sites where you’ll see a variety of sea life in the island’s crystal clear blue waters.

Gouverneur, St. Barts, the Caribbean

Gouverneur is an outlying, pristine island located in the southernmost part of the Caribbean. Those who want access to the beach itself have to trek through a small, shady grove of trees where a number of tourists and locals have picnics at the eastern end of the beach.

Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Marathonisi, Zakynthos, Greece

Also known as Turtle Island, Marathonisi is the vital breeding ground for endangered loggerhead sea turtles. The Greek islet can be reached by boat from Keri beach and Laganas bay.

Maya Bay, Phi Phi Island, Thailand

Sheltered by 100 meter high cliffs, Maya Bay’s main beach is 200 meters long and features silky soft white sand, colorful corals and some of the most exotic fish in Thailand. The best time to visit is between November and April when seas are calm and access to the bay is easy.

Pink Sand Beach, Bahamas
