‘Golden sands, rugged coastlines, clear blue waters’ – these are the things that describe TripAdvisor’s Top 25 Beaches of the World.

Chances are you know them, you’ve visited them or you absolutely DREAM of laying on them someday – TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice best beaches of the world 2023 has been listed.
Each year, the travel website reveals its best of the best world lists, and beaches are certainly not to be forgotten. According to the website, this year’s winning beaches were traveller favourites for everything from lazy beach days to underwater adventures.
