Looking for best beaches all over the world? All corners of our amazing planet — from North America, where wide public expanses flank the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, to the Southern Hemisphere, where more intimate and exotic sands await — has an embarrassment of beautiful beaches. That said, some are just a bit more memorable and much more photogenic than others. A few are world famous while others are unsung gems. What unites them? That feeling of awe you get when you kick off your flip flops, throw down your beach towel and think, “Now this is paradise.” Here is the list of the top 5 best beaches in the world.

1. Seven Mile Beach

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

Located on the western shore of the 75-square-mile island, the whole stretch of this 5.5 mile-long beach is public property, making it easy to stroll from hotel to hotel regardless of where you book an overnight. All in one afternoon, you can grab lunch at an ocean-side restaurant, stumble into a volleyball game with locals, take Jet Skis out further down the beach, and top it off with some snorkeling in Cemetery Reef, known for its rocky formations prime for sea life habitat.

2. Horseshoe Bay Beach

Bermuda

Walking along Bermuda’s famous crescent-shaped Horseshoe Bay Beach, or even on the cliff-top trails above it, is a sightseeing must. Horseshoe Bay has a hidden secret: Port Royal Cove (pictured), which has shallow water perfect for young kids and dramatic rock formations that complement wonderfully soft, pink sand. Named for the shape of its inviting bay, this scenic beach in Southampton parish is perfect for lazy sunning or playful splashing (you can rent towels, boogie boards and snorkel gear). During Bermuda’s cooler months, Horseshoe Bay remains popular as visitors snap photos of its pale-pink sand and grab a cocktail and snacks at the on-site café. One caveat: Expect crowds when cruise ships are in port.

3. Pink Sands Beach, Harbour Island

Bahamas

This Bahamian beach’s name doesn’t bend the truth one bit — the spot really boasts an amazing shade of pink sand thanks to the rosy-hued shells of tiny sea creatures called foraminifera — and the color is amplified by a backdrop of vivid teal water. Located off the northeast coast of Eleuthera Island and away from the buzz of other Bahamian beaches, families and couples alike can spend the day on pink sands only seeing a handful of other people. After basking in the sun and getting serenaded by the breeze rustling through the palm trees, visitors can pop into the town to roam down quaint Dunmore Street, dine on the fresh catch of the day at The Landing, and grab a sunset cocktail at Beyond the Reef. When you’re hungry, head for a seafront eatery (Sip Sip is a fave) and order the local specialty: conch fritters.

4. Grace Bay Beach

Providenciales, Turks and Caicos

“Unbelievably clear, clean water with hundreds of shades of blues and greens and white sugar sand beaches—ahhhhh!”

The pure white sand and clear turquoise water of the best-known bay on Providenciales are so sublime that dozens of resorts have opened here over the past two decades. And while that has made this curving 3-mile ribbon of sand a popular destination for travelers in search of upscale relaxation, there’s plenty of room for everyone. Add in calm waters, ample watersports and chic sea-view bars and restaurants and Grace Bay Beach — named for Grace Jane Hutchings, the wife of a Turks and Caicos commissioner in the 1930s — is just about perfect.

5. Camps Bay Beach

Cape Town, South Africa

“The sandy beach and massive, cold waves are just what’s needed on a hot, sunny summer Cape Town day.”

Located between Bakoven and fashionable Clifton, Camps Bay Beach is the Blue Flag beauty among a string of trendy Atlantic seaboard beaches along this scenic stretch of coastline. Camps Bay beach is where the well-to-do and the famous congregate to see, and be seen. Beautiful Camps Bay beach is popular with the young, beautiful and successful who swim, surf, sip and shop. This Cape Town beach is all about being gorgeous, from its manicured shoreline overlooked by millionaire’s mansions, to dazzling sunsets and minimalist swimwear.
