Lucky Bay Beach on the south coast of Western Australia was rated the best beach in the world for 2023.
The Australian paradise is known for its white sand and crystal turquoise waters. In fact, this beach’s sand is so impressive that a scientific study found it had Australia’s whitest sand in 2017.
Lucky Bay is perfect for active tourists with great conditions for swimming, snorkelling, fishing and whale watching.
A tourist ‘KatSimpson78’ wrote on Tripadvisor: “Breathtaking! This beach is simply stunning. Beautiful blue sea and white sand goes on forever.”
A paradise beach in the Seychelles grabbed second place on the list. Anse Source D’Argent is located on pretty La Digue island and is famous for its granite boulders and crystal clear water.
The heavenly beach looks almost otherworldly and tourists can explore the surroundings on a crystal clear kayak tour to spot fish and other creatures.
Although no British beaches made the top 10, a Scottish beach made the top 50. Achmelvich Beach might not have the weather but its sparkling waters look like they could belong in the Caribbean.
