The planet that we live in; is a land of so many countries and so many cities; exploring each and every place in one lifetime is a tad bit difficult. But are we not forgetting the other or rather the major part of our planet – Water Body. Talking facts, our earth literally dominated by water bodies (well, 70%) and maybe that’s one of the reasons that most of us are inclined towards the love for water bodies. Are you in that set as well? If you are, then I don’t even have to tell you to read on, because I’m quite sure you will.
Beaches – What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear that word? Well, for me, I usually run out of words (Pun intended) when I have to describe what a water body does to me but if I really have to describe the feeling then I would say it is sheer tranquillity. With 70% of earth being water body, imagine the stunning beaches that are there across the globe. Oh, don’t worry; I’m not going to talk about every stunning beach on this planet, but 10 is a fair deal right?

The Horseshoe Bay Beach makes a perfect curve with its sand; making it stand perfectly to its name. The clear blue water beach makes it an ideal spot for snorkelling where you sure can spot different kinds of fishes and much more. This beach has a wide spread of corals and shells which make the beach sand look white but with a tinge of pink, and guess what! This doesn’t make the sand warm even during summers.
Greece is one of the most beautiful countries has few lovely beaches as well. The Elafonissi Beach is one of the best beaches in Greece. This is a perfect beach for any age group as the shallow water would not make anyone think twice before enjoying the pristine blue-green water. The interesting side of this beach is the royalty in nature as it is the home to rare plant species. Interesting stories never end, so here is another one. The stretch of sand on this beach is majorly white but it has shades of pink due to the seashells. The whole package of the beach makes it totally worthy to be known as one of the best beaches.
When a couple is thinking of a perfect romantic getaway, Maldives tops their list. And if you ask me, why shouldn’t it cross their mind! This island is in the middle of nowhere (that’s the beauty of it) with clear blue water all around. Maldives over the past few years has been a haven for luxury travel. This island offers beaches that are breath-taking and amidst the islands. To pick the most stunning beach in Maldives which is the epitome of beauty in itself is next to impossible. But I would highly recommend Reethi Beach which is on Baa Atoll Island. Must be wondering how did I make my impossible task possible? Well, Reethi Beach has clear blue waters and makes it picture perfect because of its white sand and palm trees. To add to this, the luxury resorts where you are technically staying on top of a beach and listening to the sound of the beach while waking up is like truly rejuvenating. To leave you completely awestruck this beauty is one of the beaches that glow in the dark which totally makes the holiday magical and what could be more romantic than this set-up?
Hawaii sometimes is a synonym to the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Andaman & Nicobar Island is never a place that strikes someone when we talk about a trip or beach destination. But this island has some of the most beautiful beaches.

This beach creates a complete tranquillity atmosphere and will unwind and relax you with the beautiful clear blue water and white sand and the sound of the waves. Snorkelling is an activity that you must enjoy in this island.
Havana is the first thing that flashes our mind when we think about beach destinations in Cuba. But there another beach which has everything that an ideal beach location asks for. Cayo Levisa is one of the rare beaches that people go to and that’s why it is still serene and hasn’t lost its charm by a lot of tourists invading it. This is also an ideal beach for you to sail in the clear blue water with white sands and palm trees at the background and enjoy it all along.
Thailand is known for its beautiful beaches and it is one of those countries that has all kinds of beaches right from beautiful, secluded, crowded, rocky, different colours of sand, shades of blue water, party and much more which are there in Krabi, Phuket, Koh Samui but Maya Bay Beach from Phi Phi Island has gained its popularity and it is one of the most visited places in the Thailand. Let’s take a moment and thank Leonardo Di Caprio for this popularity. But nonetheless, this beach is surrounded by high cliffs on three sides with turquoise blue water almost to the point where you can see the coral reefs so easily. You can dive into the experience of snorkelling at this beach and dwell into the beauty that’s under water which a perfect escape from the land for a while; don’t you agree?

Australia is known for its beaches and this seven kilometres stretch of Whitehaven Beach gives Australia to boost with pride for the sheer beauty that exists. This beach is one of the most stunning beaches in the world and this picturesque setting has the purest form of sand (literally white and I’m not kidding) that consists of white silica (another reason to boost with pride). This sight is not to be missed not just by beach lovers but by everyone because this beach sure is one of a kind.
