Summer is at its peak and picking the perfect beach for vacation is important. The new website Explore Corner features a conglomeration of user-based reviews of beaches across the globe and makes the perfect place to search for your favorite stretch of sand.

Explore Corner is taking the guess work out of picking a vacation destination. There are so many variables that many people forget to consider. Are there beach vendors that are constantly selling their wares? Is there a nude section that may perturb vacationing families? Is the same large stretch of sand still there following a recent hurricane? How easy is it to reach the beach from the center of town? Is this a crowded area frequented by tourists or locals?

Travelers taking US Airways' nonstop flight from Charlotte to Madrid may be interested in discovering the top ten beaches in Spain. Using the Explore Corner website to research these would be the first step to deciding which would be the top choice.

According to The Local, an English-language publication covering Spain, the ten favorite Spanish beaches of 2013 include:

-Las Canteras in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands)

-La Concha in San Sebastian (on the Atlantic coast in northern Spain)

-La Playa de la Arena (Basque region)

-Tamariu along the Costa Brava (north of Barcelona)

-Es Trenc (Mallorca)

-Mundaka in the Basque region (popular with surfers)

-Barcelona (just steps from the downtown center)

-Cabopino on the Costa del Sol (near Malaga)

-Las Salinas on Ibiza (a major party destination)

-Playa de las Rodas (Galicia)

Explore Corner is a fresh slate with colorful photos and travel guide content making it the perfect place to research a vacation destination.

The site is easy to navigate allowing users to search by beach or country name. Some of the most popular beaches are even highlighted on the home page. Another unique feature allows users to suggest a beach if they cannot find the one they want.

Once you click on a beach, it reveals a detailed map of the area, a full description of the beach and surrounding region, and amenities or activities on offer nearby. There is even a current weather report and the average distance to other nearby beaches in the area.

User photos provide backup to the comments that people leave on the site. This is the TripAdvisor.com of beaches and is bound to be a popular web resource for any vacation in the sun.

US Airways' nonstop seasonal flight between Charlotte and Madrid ends on Sept. 28.
