Spiaggia Capriccioli was a beautiful little beach, conveniently located a 5 minutes walk from our hotel in the Costa Smeralda. There is a café right before you reach the beach, which offers delicious homemade pastas and pizzas for lunch. Beware though, Spiaggia Capriccioli is a very popular beach, even in mid-September. Both times we went there (mid-afternoon and before lunch time) the two sides of the beach were already packed full. The beach is very popular with the nearby hotels and resorts, as it is less windy on this side. For more on my trip to Sardinia, click here!

9. Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

Although Koh Phi Phi had this crazy double tide every day (which meant that sometimes the water was a few meters away from the beach and then at other times, it was a hundred meters away) the views of the beaches from the viewpoint were stunning. This is why Koh Phi Phi beats out the Aussie beaches, IMO. For more on my trip to Thailand, click here!

8. Gili Trawangan, Indonesia

Unfortunately for me, it rained a lot when I visited the Gili islands. Therefore, I only got half a day of beautiful sunshine and beach weather (this is probably why Gili isn’t higher up on my list). For more on my trip to Indonesia, click here!

7. Puerto Lopez, Ecuador

Although not the most beautiful beach in the world, I really enjoyed Puerto Lopez. Of all the beaches we did on the Ecuadorian coast, this one was my favorite, as it was quiet and relaxing. For more on my trip to Ecuador, click here!

6. Dunsborough, Australia

Dunsborough, Australia (2011)

In my opinion, Dunsborough had the most beautiful and unique beaches I saw while I was in Australia. One of the beaches we went to had stunning turquoise waters, snow white sandy beaches, fire orange rocks and bright green shrubs lining the beach. Plus, there was virtually no one there.

5. Caye Caulker, Belize

Caye Caulker was another great place to unwind and take it easy; the whole island diffuses this laid back vibe. And because it’s an island, that means there is beach access (almost) everywhere! I also liked that it was really not commercial, unlike its counterpart San Pedro. For more on my trip to Belize, click here!

4. Paros, Greece

Ok, these pictures aren’t from Paros exactly, they are from a sailing day trip I did when I was there. They took us to this beautiful secluded island, with crystal clear waters and made us a wonderful Greek feast. This is some of the nicest waters I’ve ever seen.

3. Tulum, Mexico

I loved my time in Tulum. Of all the places I went to in that trip, Tulum was my favorite. It had everything Caye Caulker offered, relaxation and laidback vibes, and more. It had an assortment of delicious restaurants, beautiful beach bars and clubs and adorable boutiques and shops along the jungle road. I would go back to Tulum any day! For more on my trip to Mexico, click here!

2. La Maddalena Archipelago, Sardinia, Italy

Ironically, the La Maddalena Archipelago beaches rank higher up than Spiaggia Capriccioli in this blog post, versus on my Sardinia travel blog post. That is because this blog post focuses on the beaches themselves. Hands down, the La Maddalena Archipelago had the most stunning beaches of Sardinia and some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen in my life. To get there, you need to take a boat tour from Palau and we chose Elena Tour Navigazioni. The colors of the water with the rocky backdrops were just stunning. I would love to go back one day! For more on my trip to Sardinia, click here!

1. Maya Bay (Koh Phi Phi, Thailand)

1. Maya Bay, Koh Phi Phi, Thailand

You just can’t beat the views of Maya Bay. We were lucky enough to see the island almost empty of tourists, as we hired out a private water taxi to take us there. Maya Bay is one of the most stunning places I have ever seen and definitely my top beach destination, in terms of beauty of the water. For more on my trip to Thailand, click here!
