Rhossili Bay, Wales
Let’s face it. The weather in the UK is not always ideal for sunbathing but this doesn’t mean you can’t find exquisite beaches in the area. Rhossili Bay is one such beach. It is located in the Gower Peninsula in Swansea, and one of the major attractions to it are the blooms that can be found near the beach.
Whitehaven beach, Australia
The Whitsunday islands are a top-of-the-list destination for people who love the sun, sand and water. Located on this dream destination is the swirling Whitehaven beach.

Cala Goloritze, Italy
It is not often a landslide leads to something good. But Cala Goloritze, which came about due to a landslide is 1962, is an exception to that rule. This stunning beach can be found in Sardinia, and it is one of the main attractions of the island. Apart from swimming in the stunning waters, you get to enjoy other activities such as birdwatching and snorkeling.
Honopu beach, Hawaii
If you are not a swimmer, you should forget about going to Honopu beach. This is because the beach which is located on the Na Pali Coast and known for its strong spiritual history, does not allow boats or airplanes on it. A boat can take you as close to the beach as possible, but then you have to jump into the water and swim the rest of the way there to enjoy the unparalleled natural beauty.
Baia do Sancho, Brazil
When you hear the word beach, you often form a picture of sand and relaxation. But before you can enjoy the golden sands of the Baia do Sancho, you will need to put in some effort.
