When you hunt for beautiful beaches from around the world, in your own country, in your own state, or anywhere else that interests you, there are always a few beaches, islands, and countries which keep popping up in the top 10 lists. These lists of ten or more beaches are put together by various individuals or organizations and each uses different criteria in how they select the beaches that appear in their lists. We'll also provide additional resources to help you investigate further.
There are many beautiful beaches around the world. They range from the coasts of Central America, to the islands of the Pacific, to the beaches of the Mediterranean, to the islands of the Caribbean, and more. Most of these world's beautiful beaches have plenty of sunshine, beautiful sand to walk on, good sea breezes, and great scenery to enjoy, even if it is the water itself. Many of these beaches are remote and may have limited access. Beaches which are commonly referred to as some of the world's most beautiful are the Cayman Islands, Anguilla, Barbuda, Turks and Caicos, Seychelles, Maldives, Bora Bora, and Lanikai Beach.
The beaches that many of us consider to be the most beautiful are scattered along the many island and mainland shores around the globe. Some of the ones listed below may lead you to one that is close to you or very similar to what other beach lovers consider to be among the best. Yes, there are many beaches that people want to visit, but there are probably just as many within a reasonable distance from where you are or where you may be planning to visit.
Bora Bora, meaning "first born", is an island of volcanic origin in French Polynesia, which is located in the South Pacific. It is approximately 18 miles long. Bora Bora is in a protected lagoon formed by coral reefs, has sandy white beaches, and offers plenty of water activities. The economy of Bora Bora is centered around tourism, offering plenty of beautiful sights and several luxury resorts.

Mount Pahia and Mount Otemanu are remnants of the extinct volcano, and the two mounts are covered with vegetation.
The Cayman Islands are made of the three islands of Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman which are south of Cuba and northwest of Jamaica.

Crane Beach is a beautiful beach close to the Caribbean on the southeast coast of Barbados, which is on the Atlantic Ocean. The beach is named after a large crane on top of a cliff which used to serve the harbor. The beach below is a combination of white and pink colors, with the pink being produced by the crushing of pink coral which has been washed up on the beach. Some protection from the waves of the Atlantic are provided by cliffs and a coral reef. Swimming is usually done close to shore. At the top of the cliff is the historic Crane Resort.
