  18. beach_boy reviewed Beaches of Tayrona in Caribbean Coast, Colombia

    "Wild and empty beaches and crashing waves are to be found here after some strenuous hiking through the rainforest. Worth the effort to join other adventurous travellers here, though, as the place is teeming with wildlife as well as the odd ruin to explor…"

  20. beach_boy reviewed Grand Palace, Rattanakosin in Bangkok, Thailand

    The Grand Palace is situated in Rattanakosin, where King Rama I built his new capital in the late 18th century. The seat of Governement to this day, this is where most of Bangkok's main sights are found. A former residence of the King, the Palace is bu…"

  21. beach_boy reviewed Lake Obabika Fishing Lodge in Ontario, Canada

    This remote lake north of Toronto hosts exclusive fishing getaways in secluded luxury cabins for no more than 20 guests. As well as gourmet cookery 'from a European chef', they run wine tasting as well as Feng Shui seminars."

  23. beach_boy reviewed Praia das Rodas in Vigo, Spain

    Praia das Rodas is a pristine beach a half hour boar trip from the mainland (Balona), with few visitors in the secluded national park of Las Islas Cies. Wilder Atlantic coast than the more popular Mediterranean one, since the water is colder and wilder. …"

  24. beach_boy reviewed Copacabana in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

    Perhaps the most famous beach in the world, this is a social and community beach in the true sense of the word: Copacabana beach hosts the famous New Year's Eve celebrations, as well as Carnival events, beach football competitions, and rock concerts. A …"

  25. beach_boy reviewed Patara Beach in Aegean Region, Turkey

    18km of sand on this 'Turquoise coast' make this, the birthplace of Apollo, one of the longest beach destinations in the Med. Hatching turtles and extensive greco-roman ruins (including an impressive amphitheatre) has meant protection from development. S…"

  26. beach_boy reviewed Conigli Beach in Italy

    Conigli Beach (Rabbit Beach) is one of the last places on Lampedusa to see hatching sea turtles (in September). Unfortunately increased tourism has driven them away (see www.seaturtles.org) - but they are now carefully monitored by conservationists, and …"

  27. beach_boy reviewed Logon Beach in Philippines

    "More relaxed than the more upscale Bounty Beach on this diver's paradise island, Logon Beach offers spectacular sunsets, as well as a good base for exploring this small but charming island."

  28. beach_boy reviewed Crane Beach in Bridgetown, Barbados

    Often voted one of the world's top ten beaches, though normally by glamour magazines whose journalists get freebies in the super deluxe resort here, which charges non-residents a beach fee. It's a busy beach where you will hear accents ranging from Bever…"

  29. beach_boy reviewed Alona Beach in Tagbilaran City, Philippines

    Laid back beach for bargain hunters - friendly people and inexpensive watersports, but busy and in no way secluded"

  30. beach_boy reviewed Pink Sands Beach in Bahamas

    "This pink sand beach, made pink from the tiny shards of coral, is one of the pretiest in the Bahamas. Outlying coral reefs provide calm, sheltered waters, gentle for swimming and snorkelling."

  31. beach_boy reviewed Honda Bay in Philippines

    With over 1700 islands Palawan is still one of the least developed beach destinations in Southeast Asia. Luxury travellers and high end resorts have started moving in, but development is sporadic, and Honda Bay remains a haven of thatched huts and empty …"

  32. beach_boy reviewed Anse Source d'Argent in Seychelles

    One of the most photographed beaches in the world, another soft white sand Seychelles classic, peppered with huge as well as smaller granite boulders, wind, sand and sea eroded into weird and wonderfil shapes - a photographer's paradise. The shallow, war…"

  33. beach_boy reviewed Whitehaven Beach in Whitsunday Group, Australia

    "Whitehaven beach is a pristine expanse of pure white beach over 9km of sand, with gently shelving shallows into a crystal blue sea. Tropical lushness and great snorkelling help make this perhaps the most beautiful beach in the world."

  34. beach_boy reviewed Matira Beach in Bora Bora, French Polynesia

    Matira Beach on Bora Bora is one of the best beaches in one of the most spectacular destinations in the world. Swimming and snorkelling are gentle in the gently sloping lagoon, and the weather is fair year round. There are many smaller, more isolated bea…"

  35. beach_boy reviewed Tapuaetai in Aitutaki, Cook Islands

    40 minutes by air, the bright white sand and swaying palms of Aitutaki makes this one of the most beautiful spots on the Cook Islands. Up to 20 miles across, the lagoon offers spectacular snorkelling amongst a vast array of fish. One of the most idyllic …"

  36. beach_boy reviewed Piscinas Beach in Sardinia, Italy

    On the Costa Verde, also known as the silent coast or the Italian Sahara, this beach is one of the wildest along these magical, deserted shores. Abandoned and ancient mining communities and 2km wide dunes lend it an eerie quality, completely under-develo…"

  37. beach_boy reviewed Kapalua Beach in Hawaii, United States

    Kapalua, once voted the best beach in the world, is certainly one of the best in Hawaii. Sheltered by two lava points which produce calm, warm waters, this crescent shaped bay is great for families with kids - with the softest sand and excellent snorkell…"

  38. beach_boy reviewed Porto da Barra Beach in Salvador, Brazil

    One of the most famous beaches in Salvador is Porto da Barra, the centre of a vibrant community of artists and musicians. Can get crowded, especially at weekends, but the Bay situation makes the sea calm to swim in."

  39. beach_boy reviewed Nungwi Beach in Tanzania

    "One hour and a half north of Zanzibar, Nungwi Beach is a relatively new beach destination for travellers - easy to access sea, wide stretches of white sand, no sea urchins and inexpensive thatched hut accommodation, with a relaxed vibe, make it a great p…"

  40. beach_boy reviewed Lefaga (Paradise Beach) in Samoa

    Most famous beach in Samoa, with white sand, swaying palms and some charming beach Fale's to stay in. Swimming can be hazardous though, which brings my vote down - pounding surf can drag you over inshore reefs."

  41. beach_boy reviewed Trunk Bay in U.S. Virgin Islands

    Breathtaking bay, often voted the most beautiful in the Virgin Islands, with perfectly white powdery sand, swaying coconut palms, a gently shelving swimming area and great snorkelling in the St John Virgin Islands National Park. Heart shaped and a quarte…"

  42. beach_boy reviewed Lake McKenzie in Queensland, Australia

    White sand beach on crystal clear lake in the middle of Fraser Island - refreshingly cool water and few people about."

  43. beach_boy reviewed Ko Tarutao National Marine Park's Beaches in Thailand

    One of the most beautiful of Thailand's beach destinations, the national park offers an abundance of wildlife and marine life, including sperm whale, dolphins and turtles. The park covers 48 islands, three of which offer accommodation and are reasonably …"

  44. beach_boy reviewed Grand Anse Beach in Grenada

    "Grand Anse Beach is in a sheltered bay and a favourite on this island. Two miles of pure white sand, it's been considerably developed, with nearby hotels and resorts and plenty of watersports on offer. The surf is gentle, and there's plenty of shade amon…"

  45. beach_boy reviewed Lanikai Beach in Honolulu, United States

    "Often voted the best beach in Hawaii, Oahu's wide Lanikai"

  46. beach_boy reviewed Anse Lazio in Seychelles

    One of the Seychelles's most famous and beautiful beaches (or rather a collection of beaches around Chevalier Bay, separated by rain forest), Anse Lazio is jewel-like and perfectly formed, with distinctive large granite rocks framing both ends. Fine soft…"

  47. beach_boy reviewed Emerald Bay, Pangkor Laut in Malaysia

    Pangkor Laut Resort's privately owned Emerald Bay on this small island is often sited as one of the best beaches in the world - a perfect crescent shape with silky soft sand and no crowds. However, since it is only accessible by guests, that marks it dow…"

  48. beach_boy reviewed Beaches of Angra dos Reis in Angra dos Reis, Brazil

    Not just one beach, but a whole area comprising 365 islands and more than 2000 beaches. Great for sailing as well as diving and windsurfing, there are beaches here for secluded picnic-ing as well as watersports, with loads of cultural attractions dotted …"

  49. beach_boy reviewed Mui Ne Beach in Phan Thiết, Vietnam

    Mui Ne Beach boasts the lowest annual rainfall in Vietnam, and is a good mix of laid back Thai vibe and a good beach scene. In recent years its developed a reputation as the Vietnamese centre for kitesurfing and windsurfing. Tropical beaches, dunes and b…"

  50. beach_boy reviewed Praia do Rosa Beach in Southern Brazil, Brazil

    Wonderful and secluded Praia do Rosa is accessible through a patch of rainforest, with no roads or significant buildings in sight. Just an array of laid back thatched huts with hammocks, and a crowd of serious surfers. Fine seafood, and long walks along …"

  51. beach_boy reviewed Grand Anse Le Diamant in Fort-de-France, Martinique

    Le Diamant [Diamond Beach] is 6 miles long and the most picturesque beach on Martinique, with deep turquoise sea and views of Diamond Rock Island. Good restaurants, relaxed swimming and some watersports."

  52. beach_boy reviewed Arambol Beach in Karnataka, India

    Wide, relaxed beach with beach hut accomodation and markets for budget travellers."

  53. beach_boy reviewed White Beach in Philippines

    This 6km stretch of pure white sand on Boracay, the honeymooners island, was until recently amongst the top ten beach spots in the world. Alas, no more - the typhoons of 2006 have all but destroyed it, and much of it is now underwater for much of the day."

  54. beach_boy reviewed Terracina Beach in Central Italy, Italy

    5km long if slightly scruffy beach in the sleepy town of Terracina. Popular with day-tripping Romans and hordes of Italian tourists in 'ferragosto', so go in late August/early September. Popular off season with kitesurfers. But not a typical Med tourist …"

  55. beach_boy reviewed Grayton Beach in US South East, United States

    Voted by 'Dr Beach' as one of his lesser known favourites, this Gulf Coast Panhandle beach is at the centre of a long, wide, 20 mile stretch mixed with dunes and freshwater lakes. The attraction here is the town - an eccentric old southern US beach town,…"
