A lifelong beach lover like me has strolled along hundreds of beaches in far-reaching parts of the world, from Florida to Fiji. Best beaches lists name sandy strands across the globe as “best” for many reasons. I read them and wonder what I am missing on this beach or that, if I haven’t yet visited it.
I realize, as should you, that all beaches lists are subjective, and are not all-inclusive. My favorite beaches may not be yours, and my new favorite beach may be waiting for me after visiting my next tropical destination.
These five beaches, however, are, to me, ones worthy of putting on your bucket list for various reasons. They aren’t all loll-on-the-beach with a piña colada within reach kind of beach. Some of them are, but others have their own built-in fascination factor.
See what you think, and let me know if you have visited any of them, or have your own to add in the Comments section below.
