the world's best beaches: part 1

Everyone has a different opinion on the world’s best beaches. Often the beaches chosen and ranked are the main beaches in a town or city (such as the most accessible beach, which in turn is the one over run with tourist). The beaches that make my personal list are secluded, beautiful, and unique (but you’ll have to become a loyal A Day At The Beach viewer to gain access to that list). Clarity of water, texture and color of sand all help you decide on your personal beach ranking. (When you grow up on the coast, you become picky about even the sand! )

Many times the beaches in these professional rankings are those whose image is burned in our mind, such as Ipanema in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. We know it’s crowded, and dirty, and there are probably better beaches in the city, but we have to see it.

Here is Part 1 of our world’s best beaches coverage. No place is perfect year round (weather), and some spots may be better than others for the type of vacation you’re looking for. Many best lists have categories, so will be providing those to you too. So many entities create these lists, will keep posting different one’s for you to check out. Our suggestion, go with your preferred provider.
