The World’s 50 Best Beaches

The World’s 50 Best Beaches

A few weeks ago I was approached by Flight Network to take part in their latest project, the World’s 50 Best Beaches©, which provides an annual snapshot of the opinions and experiences of the top international travel experts.

It’s a globally recognized list showcasing the most alluring and untouched beaches from every corner of the earth.
The FlightNetwork team consulted the opinions and expertise of more than 600+ travel journalists, editors, bloggers and agencies — asking them to rank the best beaches in the world based on their travel experiences.

 Five criteria:

  • sheer untouched beauty
  • remoteness
  • sand and water quality
  • annual days of sunshine
  • average annual temperature.

Each of the 50 Beaches included in this list were put through a rigorous vetting process and ranked based on the number of votes cast and the above criteria.

I am honoured to say that two beaches I have suggested have made it on the list! The first one is Whitehaven Beach in Australia, which was voted as NUMBER 2!

The second beach I have recommended, number 15 on the list, is the Muri Beach in Rarotonga, the Cook Islands!

“Muri Beach is a small, extremely romantic island getaway. Its white sands and turquoise waters will make you believe in true love.“ Our honeymoon destination! Scroll to see me with some coconuts! By the way, we stayed at the Muri Beach Cottages, the most romantic place ever!

    Reading about beaches is as enjoyable as spending time on them. I liked your list and have visited many of them.
