322 beaches globally were named in this year’s awards which include “best of” lists for Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, South America, the South Pacific, and the U.S.
Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor said: “Even if you can’t go to one of these stunning beaches soon, just looking at the photos will take you away for a moment, until you can plan a trip.”
The winning coasts with the most were determined based on both high ratings and high volume of traveller reviews and the ratings for beaches on TripAdvisor were all gathered over the course of a year.
So without further ado…here is the crème de le coastline list!
