#1. Whitehaven Beach, Australia
Looking for the most “Instagrammable” beach on this planet? Head to Australia for Whitehaven Beach. What’s awesome about this beach is that you can just walk barefoot comfortably even under the heat of the sun. The bright, white sands on the island don’t really retain much heat like sand normally would. The island is only accessible by seaplane, helicopter or by boat – but that didn’t stop anyone from going.
#2. Lanikai Beach, Hawaii
Powdery white sand and inviting turquoise waters will welcome you to one of Hawaii’s best beaches. Calm waters are perfect for kayaking but snorkelers can also enjoy their time exploring the beauty underwater.
#3. Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda
Being one of Bermuda’s famous beaches, expect crowds in this area. The beach is a curved stretch of pink sandy shores and hence the name. Horseshoe Bay offers plenty of cliff diving opportunities for adrenaline junkies.
