5 Best Beaches You Must Visit

If you’re looking to discover heaven on Earth, likeliness is that it’s on a beach. Unfortunately, some of us have become somewhat disenchanted with beach holidays thanks to over-crowding, polluted water and rubbish filled sand.

Thankfully there are still perfect beaches out there and they’re nothing short of divine. When you’re look at your next holiday consider some of these – you won’t be disappointed.

Las Islas Cies – Spain

Before you quit the page, let us explain. There are still some Spanish beaches that are completely untouched and one of these is Las Islas Cies. Due to the fact it’s on the Atlantic, the water is much colder which drives away the crowds, but the scenery is incomparable. It’s of a true Caribbean standard – just don’t expect any warm waters!

Porto da Barra – Brazil

If you like to combine your beach life with city living, there is nowhere like Porto da Barra. Based on the outskirts of Salvador, there’s always something going on here, whether it’s beach volleyball or cliff diving, and it’s only a moment away from the city itself. Thankfully, the beach has remained untouched by standard city living, which means it’s stunning as well as clean!

Arambol – India

Arambol is a controversial choice for some, but it’s one of the best beaches for a true backpacker experience filled with hedonism and new experiences. The beach itself is nothing short of beautiful, and is a fantastic place to unwind and discover something new. One warning: don’t attend if you’re very easily offended, as people really like to let themselves go here!

Whitehaven – Australia

A vast number of Australian beaches could take the crown, but Whitehaven has an edge on everything else Aus has to offer. The scenery is startlingly amazing, especially as it’s based on the edge of a tropical forest which will no doubt provide some much needed shelter at mid-day!

Sinclair’s Bay – Caithness

It might be based in Scotland, but for people looking to stay in the country this beach looks truly tropical. With white sand and crystal blue waters, you might not want to go for a dip but it provides a shocking difference to the rest of the country.
