I am a huge Member of beaches so I decided to compile a list of what I think are the prettiest beaches in the world and why I'd like to visit them.

1. Reethi Beach, Maldives



This ladies and gents, is a bioluminescent beach.Yes the water actually does glow at night and that's why I really want to go there. One of the main reasons anyhow. Basically you have these glowing planktons and such that allow it to happen. Not only do you have glowing water but in Reethi beach you get over the water houses to rent. Overall Reethi just has gorgeous scenery and an abundance of sea-life.

2. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia



First and foremost temperatures average at 79 degrees so there's always nice weather. For seconds the scenery is just striking; most people who have stopped by there note that the sunsets have so many vibrant hues. The island has a quiet nightlife and is more mellow. Plus there are really nifty over the water bungalows. And they have a shark feeding expedition for the daring lot!

3. Anse Source d’Argent, La Digue, Seychelles



Anse Source d'Argent is a lovely pink sand beach with impressive and breath-taking rock structures. The water is calm and shallow so you can swim safe. The water is also teeming with sea-animals and a pretty reef. You can even ride in an ox-cart. If you don't like oxen, then there are plenty of tortoises roaming the beach.

4. Blue Lagoon, Iceland



Let's take a break from the tropical shall we? Number four on my list is the polar opposite of the first three. Decorated with snow and ice, and complete with a view of the Northern Lights (best time to see them is between September and December). Believe it or not, despite it's frosty appearance, the water is pretty warm! To go with the Northern Lights, the beach offers opportunities to visit geysers and take a horse back ride on lava fields. Plus you get a taste of Nordic culture. And if none of this appeals to you, they have a spa as well.

5. Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives



Still don't care for ice and snow? Then how about Sunset Beach? Honestly it was hard too choose just one image for this article; of all of the beaches on this list I think Gili Lankanfushi is the most awe-striking, especially in the dusk/night hours. To go with the lovely sights you can find spas and snorkeling and see a coral lagoon. Don't fancy any of that? Want something unique? Gili Lankanfushi offers a movie in the jungle! Or you can spend your time more romantically by checking out those candlelit dinners. Nothing's better than a dinner outside with a balmy breeze and a soft candle's glow.

6. Sunset Beach, Oahu, Hawaii



When people think tropical usually they think of Hawaii or the Caribbean. Sunset Beach is called Sunset Beach for a reason; the view is breathtaking. The beach itself is known for surfing during the wintertime of all times. Of course Hawaii still sees balmy temperatures while the rest of us suffer. The reefs are a bit rough and jagged but are still good for exploring.



7. Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA



Not gonna lie, this one made the list because I had an opportunity to plant a good few memories here. Let me just say, Fort Lauderdale is really nice.The boardwalk is beautiful and so are the sunsets. I had the pleasure of watching a quiet storm over the horizon at night, it was truly lovely. There are loads of stores and if you like Reggae and Reggaton music, Fort Lauderdale is for you. The water is great too and you can collect all kinds of shells. I also highly recommend drinking from a pineapple and reading a book under the palm trees.

8. Hidden Beach, The Marieta Islands, Mexico



Have you ever wanted to go swimming under a dome-like structure? Well then Hidden Beach is for you. The island is pretty much uninhabited. If these two things aren't badass enough, people speculate that this beach is the result of bomb testing lol.

9. Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece



Anse Source de'Argent not pink enough for you? Try giving Elafonisi beach a try. This beach has fine sand and shallow water so people can easily play volleyball and the like in its waters. This is also a great place for turtle fans; on Elafonisi Beach you can meet a Caretta-Caretta turtle. Though it is recommended that one does not go to this beach on windy days. Other than that a trip to Elafonisi is well worth it, especially if you like a relaxing trip.

10. Egmond ann Zee, Holland, Netherlands



Perhaps tropical and snow both aren't your get ups. If this is the case then I would try Egmond ann Zee it has that whole small-town, fishing-town vibe to it. With it's nifty light house and a quint little village in the background. And that lovely tall grass. This beach has a much different atmosphere to it than the others. Honestly, when I look at this beach I think of every sailor movie ever. This is the beach I'd go to for a bit of storm watching. And it's in the Netherlands, I love the Netherlands.
