The best beaches in the world

Posted by Tintin Sealey

Winter in Australia is fast approaching so we have put together the best beaches in the world to run away to! beach-clouds-daytime-994605

Honokalani Beach, Wai’anapanapa State Park, Maui, Hawaii

With its jet black shore, electric blue waters, and thick jungle - like foliage, Honokalani Beach is a photographers dream.  

Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Matira is perhaps the most famous of Tahiti's beaches and for good reason: The mile-long stretch of silky, powder white sand slopes gently into a shallow emerald lagoon, and is backed by a thick curtain of palms and tropical foliage.  

Reethi Rah, North Male Atoll, Maldives

It's nearly impossible to pick a favourite beach in the Maldives what with over 1200 to choose from but we are drawn to the North Male Atoll, and Reethi Rah in particular.  

Seagrass Bay, Laucala Island, Fiji

This 12 km private island paradise is a 50-minute charter flight from Nadi and worlds away from everyday life. Covered in tropical jungle Laucala is home to some of the archipelagos rarest birds and animals, pristine beaches and incredible marine life.  

Diamond Beach, Nusa Penida, Bali

Nusa Penida is one of the most beautiful beaches you have ever seen. One that came straight from the postcards. Diamond beach is an untouched, white sand and silky blue water bay on the eastern tip of Nusa Penida.
