The best beaches in the world

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

“Sailing around the Whitsunday Islands and discovering the Great Barrier Reef is one of the best memories I have of Australia, and Whitehaven Beach was in a class of its own for the brilliant white sand which melts into the blue of the sea.”

- Amy Loftus, Kuoni Australia expert

Kandolhu Island, Maldives

“This tiny island is encircled by soft white sand and calm turquoise water. The house reef is beautiful and you can snorkel from dedicated points, keeping a look out for local turtles. There are only 30 luxurious villas and you can step straight onto the beach or down a few steps into the lagoon.”

- Kirsty Wilson, Personal Travel Expert at Kuoni Cambridge

Anse Source d'Argent beach, Seychelles

“I consider Anse Source d’Argent beach on La Digue Island to be the most beautiful beach I have ever seen during my travels. The combination of the rock outcrops, clear blue lagoon and pure white sand is perfection for photographers.”

- Ann Coleman, Manager at Kuoni High Wycombe

Aitutaki beach, Cook Islands

“Aitutaki beach is amazing because the white powder sand is so soft to walk on and it has the most wonderful view I’ve ever seen from a beach. The lagoon is huge and dotted with islets and the water is so clear you can see giant clams below.”

- Roberto Balasco, Kuoni South Pacific expert

Phra-Ae Beach, Thailand

“If you can’t stand the drone of a jet ski, head to Koh Lanta Yai in Thailand. It’s the largest of 52 islands in an archipelago protected by Mu Ko Lanta Marine National Park. That means no motorised watersports and blissful quiet time on Phra-Ae Beach.”

- Dagmar Marrocco, Kuoni Thailand expert

Keyonna Beach, Antigua

“I love Keyonna Beach and think it has that same feeling of barefoot luxury that you get in the Maldives. The Superior Beachfront Cottages each have a private pool overlooking the unspoilt beach, so you can relax on your sundeck or wander down to one of the daybeds right on the sand.”

- Vicky Darlington, Personal Travel Expert at Kuoni Liverpool

Ipanema Beach, Brazil

“Copacabana is the first beach that springs to mind in Rio but Ipanema is my favourite. It’s arguably prettier and is thriving with bars and restaurants. Rio’s beaches draw every type of person and, at weekends, Ipanema is bursting with life. At other times, you’ll see only a few surfers, joggers or people playing football.”

- Tom Waite, Kuoni South America expert
