Nungwi Beach, Africa
First up is Nungwi Beach, which is the pride of Africa’s city Zanzibar. Among a variety of beach lands, the Nungwi Beach is at the northernmost tip of the archipelago as well as regarded as the best one among them as it is home to sand that is coral white which glows even at night and remains untroubled by the severe dangers of high and low tides, making it perfect for all the different activities that it hosts any time of the day or night. Those activities include walking tours, diving excursions, scuba diving, sunset cruises and even parasailing.
Las Islas Cies, Spain
Spain’s Las Islas Cies is second to no other beach in the country. It’s located at a serene and remote location by the Spanish Atlantic, completely reserved from the outside world as to get to it you’ll need to take a boat trip of forty minutes from the nearest town. It also hosts the national park ‘Parque Nacional de las Islas Atlánticas de Galicia’, which makes the beach even more exciting to visit.
Whitehaven Beach, Australia
There is possibly no list of world’s top ranked beaches which doesn’t contain this gem from Australia. The sand of this beach has actually been used in the making of the famous Hubble telescope by NASA which proves how fine it is. In fact, the rate of pure silica it contains has been measured to be 98%. The white sand is also complemented by a vibrant blue sea that is just amazing to look at.
Sandwood Bay, Scotland
