Matira Beach in Bora Bora, French Polynesia
Bora Bora, a French Polynesian island floating within a South Pacific archipelago, is as close to a perfect tropical paradise as you can get.
White-sand beaches and a dense interior of tapered volcanic peaks are surrounded by a crystal-clear and super calm lagoon with the glisten of its waters being nothing short of incredible.
Matira beach is the best public beach you’ll find on Bora Bora. The sand is fine and soft to the touch and while popular with locals too it’s never too crowded for the most part. One of the highlights of the region is, undoubtedly, the amazing sunsets over the turquoise lagoon, a sight you will surely remember for years to come.
There are numerous other beaches here as well as the small islets that surround it. These are home to some of the island’s most opulent resorts, many of which feature its most famous feature, overwater bungalows, which were invented in the neighbouring island of Ra’iatea.
Bora Bora is the ultimate honeymoon destination, and it’s well worth the effort if you can afford the splurge.
Miami Beach in Florida
Miami Beach is the name of a 2.5-mile beach and city on a barrier island between Miami and Biscayne Bay that is considered one of America’s most beautiful beaches. At the southern end lies South beach, with its granular white sand, clear turquoise waters, and a lively social scene, it is one of the most beautiful beaches on the mainland United States.
You can spend a day on the beach just sunbathing and swimming, or you can participate in a variety of water sports, from jet skiing to wakeboarding. The South Beach district is a hotspot for dining, shopping, and entertainment. The majority of the action takes place along Ocean Drive, which is lined with beautiful Art Deco buildings that house glitzy boutiques, chef-driven restaurants, and sidewalk cafés perfect for a little break.
Pink Sands Beach in Harbour Island, The Bahamas
Pink Sands Beach on Harbour Island in the Bahamas is unlike any other beach in the Caribbean, with pale pink sand that looks particularly surreal at sunrise and sunset, the perfect moment of time to snap a truly lasting memory.
The beach stretches for nearly five kilometres and is up to 30 meters wide at times. The ocean-crushed bodies of microscopic coral insects called foraminifera that live on the underside of reefs to give the sand its unique colour. Because of the outlying reef protection, the water is usually calm and shallow, making swimming very safe.
Polihale Beach, Kauai, Hawaii
Polihale Beach, located at the end of Highway 50 and on the far western end of Kauai’s rugged Na Pali Coast, is the ideal spot for a romantic sunset picnic. The wide white-sand beach, protected by Polihale State Park, stretches for 17 miles and is Hawaii’s longest.
The western-facing location, surrounded by 100-foot-high sand dunes and cacti, makes it the ideal spot to watch the sun dip into the Pacific Ocean. While the beach is lovely for watching the sunset and strolling along its beautiful coast, swimming is not advised due to the dangerously strong current.
