Going to the beach is a great way to spend the day or enjoy a vacation, which is why millions of people all over the world can be found at the beach, especially during the summer. If you are planning a vacation to the beach, it’s always a good idea to know where the best beaches are, which is why we have compiled a list of the best beaches in the world, which are listed below.
5. Sunset Beach, Oahu, Hawaii
If you’re into surfing, it’s hard to beat Sunset Beach, which is considered one of the top spots for surfing enthusiasts, especially during the winter. The beach, which is home to the Vans Triple Crown, is popular during the winter time because the waves are very big around that time of the year. If surfing isn’t your thing, the water is great for snorkeling and other diving related activities during the summer because the water is as calm as a lake during the summer. The sunsets aren’t too bad either.
4. Matira Beach, Bora Bora
When it comes to beautiful beaches, it is hard to top the Matira beach, which is probably the most famous beach in Tahiti.

This white sand beach is one of the top destinations in the world because of the beauty and the fact that it has a very lively party scene.

There are stores selling souvenirs and jewelry, and the atmosphere is more relaxed and less crowded.
2. Blue Beach, Puerto Rico
This beach is one of the most popular Caribbean beaches, and it has perfect sand and crystal clear water that turns different shades of blue. The beach can be accessed by parking in one of the 21 turn-offs in the middle of the island’s National Wildlife Refuge, which used to be a U.S. Navy training base.
