An island situated in the Gulf of Thailand, it is chock full of beaches which offer the sun-seeker a wide variety of experiences, ranging from secluded and serene spots ideal for lounging, to those with more of a party vibe.
Only a short distance from the popular resort town of Cancun, Isla Mujeres has several beaches to offer. The most popular of these is Playa Norte which boasts crystal-clear blue water and powdery white sand.
Hawaii is a perennial favorite amongst the sun-worshippers of the world, and with good reason. It is blessed with a number of beaches that are renown for their breathtaking beauty and legendary surf. Of the many islands that make up Hawaii, Maui in particular has a number of great beaches that cater to most tastes, including Kaanapali, Kapalua, Napili and Paia.
Australia has more than its fair share of stunning beach spots, but the one that stands out as being the most scenic and idyllic is Whitehaven, found off the coast of Queensland. The fine white sand is sandwiched between turquoise waters and a tropical rain-forest. It's the stuff of post-cards.
For those that seek a more exotic and private get-away. Palawan is made up of a group of little islands where one stands a good chance of finding their own private little stretch of powdery white sand for a while.
