16. Amanohashidate – Japan
Kyoto is a bustling city full of temples, so it’s no wonder it has a bridge that takes you to the sky in the shape of a beach.
A sandbank surrounded by pine trees, where you can follow the trail with the other tourists or carve one of your own and find a deserted section of the beach. Both options offer spectacular scenery.
17. Grace Bay – Turks and Caicos Islands
Grace Bay, the best beach according to TripAdvisor, has the brightest white sand and bluest water imaginable.
It’s not hard to find great beaches in Turks and Caicos, but this one gets the biggest piece of cake.
18. ÖLÜDENIZ, TURKEY
The coast of Lycia, on the Mediterranean coast, offers the opportunity to swim on beaches that have seen a dozen civilizations pass by. The route that links the most beautiful sands must stop at the long bay of Ölüdeniz, whose placid waters have earned it the nickname of Blue Lagoon. A part of the bay has been declared a national park and is an ideal spot for canoeing and diving in search of a sea turtle. The Roman and Lycian ruins are a perfect historical complement.
