This is a very detailed list. I am pinning for future use. Thank you for sharing it.
Absolutely gorgeous pics!! Love traveling and the article!!
So glad to see Boulder's Beach featured on your list – it's one of my favourites!
What a beautiful post! I love beaches. I was super surprised by the ones in Hawaii though – one of them isn't accessible except via swimming therefore hardly anyone goes to it but it made a list of "most popular beaches". I've lived in Hawaii and there's a large number of other beaches that people go to!
Holy moly all of those are gorgeous and I haven't been to any! Whhhat am I doing with my life haha I need to go now
That's actually the main reason why its popular. its not the most visited beach because its not easily accessible but its one of the post popular. people fancy and talk about what they cant have and that why it in the mouth of most tourist.
So amazing places … love it, want to travel all of them, I think out of the list i have been maybe to two of them
I totally agree with you that all those beaches are beautiful. For me one beach is missing – the beach of Lake Malawi in Southern Africa. Have you been there? It´s beautiful.
You can't go to Marietas anymore thank God, due to wreckage of the environment.
As famous as they are, they are definitely not the top 1 Mexican beach though.
Try Tulum, Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca, Playa del Carmen, Tenacatita.
