There are beautiful beaches in Sydney, but the rest of the world has some stunning locations too.
Here is a list of our must-see beaches for some instagrammable moments and peaceful days in nature.
Anse Source D’argent, Seychelles
Anse Source D’argent is one of the most aesthetic beaches in the world located in the south-west of the island La Digue.
With unusually striking rock formations bordering the shore, this picturesque landscape is the perfect place to bask in the sand, sea and sun.
As this beach has low tides and shallow waves, it makes for a once-in-a-lifetime location to go swimming, snorkeling and paddle-boarding with the family and kids.
Hidden Beach, Philippines
Hidden Beach is located on the peaceful island of El Nido in the Philippines.
Known for its laid-back atmosphere and feel, this island is an option for those who dislike the hustle and bustle of a tourist hotspot.
The beach itself is sheltered by towering cliffs above the soft white sand below.
With an abundance of colourful coral that can be seen when snorkeling, this secluded space is world-class for those looking for a secret, relaxing getaway.
Honokalani Beach, Hawaii
Honokalani Beach is unlike anything one could imagine.
Located in the Wai’anapanapa State Park, this worldly treasure is known for its dense jungle-forest which remains the background to its jet-black shore.
The contrast of the electrifying blue ocean against the black ‘sand’ and green foliage makes for a photographer’s dream location.
Grace Bay, Caribbean
Grace Bay is a wonderful little spot in the Turks and Caicos Islands in the Caribbean.
This pristine landscape is known to have some of the clearest water and softest sand in the world.
As part of the Princess Alexandra National Park, it is no wonder that this natural beauty has been titled World Travel Awards’ leading beach destination.
Pig Beach, Bahamas
Pig Beach is located in Exuma, an uninhabited island in the Bahamas. Just plug this name into instagram for some jaw dropping imagery.
It’s main attraction, besides its picturesque landscape, are the wild pigs that roam the beaches.
Many tourists have stated that whilst arriving by boat the pigs have swam up to them in hopes of being fed.
Whilst some may find swimming with pigs a turn off, many are coming around to the idea, making the most of the adventure and befriending the endearing inhabitants of the island.
For people looking for a once in a life time experience, it looks like heading to Pig Beach is the way to go.
