Travel Bloggers Weigh in on Their Favorite Beaches in the World

I’m pretty obsessed with beaches so I asked 6 bloggers what their favorite beach they’ve been to was and here’s what they said. Warning: if you’re stuck in north hemisphere winter at the moment like I am, you might find yourself drooling onto your keyboard.

Spiaggia della Pelosa, Sardinia, Italy

from Lotte @ Phenomenal Globe Travel Blog

Sardinia beach

La Pelosa is a beautiful beach – or spiaggia as they say in Italian – which can be found near Stintino, a little village in the Northwest of Sardinia. Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and belongs to Italy. The water has an absolutely stunning blue color and is so clear I didn’t even need a snorkel to see the fish dart around in the water!

There’s a small island about 10 meters off the coast with its own little beach and just a few people on it. As we picked our way over the slippery rocks with a bag full of valuables (camera, tablet, e-reader) I kept on thinking it was probably not the smartest thing to do without a dry bag;-) Luckily we got across without falling into the water and drowning all our electronics and enjoyed a blissful couple of hours on this lovely beach.

Lumahai Beach, Kauai, Hawaii

from Gatien @ Not So Stoic

Everyone knows Hawaii for its famous beaches for swimming / snorkeling and surfing. If you go, you will probably join the flow and rent a convertible or a bike with a surf rack to get to all the beaches these islands have to offer. Remember the saying that some of the greatest mysteries and secret place lay right next to us? And that we’d never see them if we didn’t take the time to read and listen?

Lumahai Beach is a perfect illustration of this: it’s a well-known, yet barely populated, beach in Kauai – Hawaii’s oldest island. Why I liked it besides its natural tranquility? The warm sun, yet some shade from the trees, some coconuts falling around waiting to be opened, exotic wild tropical birds dancing in the sky, warm water with mostly natural sand rather than rocks (you’ll find rocks on every beach – these are volcanic islands). Plus, it’s right next to Hanalei, one of the best places for foodies in all of the Hawaii islands.

Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia

from Kenny @ Knycx Travel

One of my favourite beaches is the Bondi beach in Sydney. I love the beach because of its variety and accessibility: It is merely 30-minute away from Sydney’s bustling city center, and even if visitors don’t plan on swimming or surfing on the beach that day, they can have a walk along the waterfront, chill out on the sand, marvel at the magnificent views along the Coogee walk, or simply enjoy a cup of coffee at a beachside cafe.

Moreover, the Icebergs’ swimming club has an infinity pool right by the ocean. It has the best views of Bondi Beach and a cute little cafe. Swimmers in the pools can still have a taste of the Pacific Ocean’s water.


Malcapuya Island, Palawan, Philippines

from Anne @ Agitopassim

Malcapuya beach

Coron, Palawan, in the Philippines, is known for its gigantic rock formations and several islets where pristine beaches abound. I’ve been to some of the usual tourist spots in Coron (Siete Pecados, Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, Banana Island, and Malcapuya Island) and for me, Malcapuya Island stood out. If there’s one place that I wanna go back to in Coron, it’s definitely this one.

When we were approaching the island from a boat, I could see the white sand from afar. True enough, when we reached the island, it has white powdery sand and the water surrounding it was crystal clear. You could easily see the marine life between the waters and the sand. It’s like swimming in a pool made of fine sand! You’ll have a picturesque background of mountains from afar while swimming, eating, or taking your nap. Just how awesome is that? The experience was really unforgettable we didn’t want to leave the place. It’s just too bad that we didn’t spend the night there but when I do return to Coron that would be at the top of my list.

Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island, Australia

from Silke @ Happiness and Things

Whitehaven Beach is located in the Whitesundays, near the Great Barrier Reef. It’s easy to see why this beach has been voted one of the best beaches in the world. You can visit Whitehaven when staying on the mainland or on one of the surrounding islands. There are plenty of cruises, helicopter and even water plane tours heading out to this beach on a daily basis. The beach is a play of colours due to the shifting silica sand. The sand is so fine and soft you can even polish your jewelry with it. When visiting we saw small sharks and lots of fish; they were so close to the beach that we didn’t even have to get our feet wet.

Esperance, Western Australia

from Annemarie @ Travel on the Brain

P1520348

Have you ever seen these photos where the kangaroo is shamelessly lounging on a sparkly white beach with unbelievably blue waves crashing behind it? That is Esperance and nothing has been exaggerated. You do meet kangaroos on the beach and they are so used to humans, they can’t be bothered by you taking hundreds of pictures of and with the kangaroos. Some even come into the camp and hunt for food. (But don’t feed them, they are still wild animals!)
If you have had enough of this idyllic place, which does get windy, you can try the hike along the many beaches in Cape Le Grand National Park. Not only is it a great workout and you get awesome views, but the beaches are mostly empty. And each one looks just as picture perfect as the next, so the choice is up to you to rest anywhere and soak up the sand. On sand so fine, it can also gently exfoliate your skin. Now, that’s what I call a decent holiday spot!

Well so far Australia is #winning for idyllic beaches. What do you think? Post your favorite beach in the comments below so I can someday have a very comprehensive beach bucket list 😀
