Matira Beach is a public beach that offers brilliant sunsets over the unbelievably blue water, a beautiful spot to enjoy a day of sunbathing and playing in the water, or walking along the soft white powdery sand.

The Maldives are full of gorgeous beaches, over 1,000 actually, but Reethi Rah Beach in North Malé is particularly beautiful! Imagine the softest white sand that slowly cascades into the twinkling crystal blue water.

The Maldives are exceptionally beautiful, and Reethi Rah provides guests an opportunity to swim, snorkel and just relax on the soft luscious sands of the beach.
Turtle Island tucked away in Zakynthos Greece is a completely untouched and non-developed island that is full of pure white sand that is known for a perfect nesting spot for sea turtles! Visitors can watch, from a distance, as baby sea turtles make their first journey through life on wobbly flippers out to the ocean. The island has a soft white sand beach but is also full of dark green vegetation and naturally jutting rocks. Only accessible by boat, Turtle Island truly feels like your own private beach getaway.
Seagrass Bay is one of the most popular and beautiful beaches in all of Fiji. This private island is only accessible through a guided tour or horseback safari, but is an unbelievably gorgeous island and beach! The island is part beach, part jungle, but totally mesmerizing! You’ll find yourself lost in the untouched and pristine beaches, enthralled with watching for some of the rarest birds and animals in Fiji, and truly feel like you’re in a private oasis. No lifeguard stands, no beach shops, just the water, the sand, the earth and you. It’s a truly remarkable beach experience.
The group of islands that make up the tropical paradise of Hawaii draws people from all over the world to its shoreline every year to get a taste of that aloha spirit. One of the biggest draws to the islands? The beaches! Hands down one of the best beaches in Hawaii though is Sunset Beach on the island of Oahu. During the summer months the water is calm and serene, perfect for playing in the soft waves or just enjoying the lapping sounds of the water. Then in the winter months the big waves crash into shore, making it an epic spot to surf. However most of all, the sunsets here are spectacular and definitely worth hanging out at the beach all day to catch a glimpse of the beauty.

Turquoise water meets the soft pink sand and create a gorgeous backdrop! Enjoy lounging on the sand, playing in the water, or snorkeling out to the small reef.
When all of the beach options are equally as incredible, the hardest part is choosing which one to go to first! From the quiet untouched shoreline of Seagrass Bay to the exciting surfs of Sunset Beach, there are so many wonderful things to explore and witness. Hopefully this helps encourage you to get out there and explore the wonderful beaches of the world, because the world is full of beautiful moments, you’ve just got to go take them.
