Travel #Pinspiration: Beaches

Beach New Zealand

So we’ve had sunsets and waterfalls, it only makes sense that this weeks Travel Pinspiration theme from ytravelblog is on the subject of glorious stretches of unbroken sand. If you’re new to the #travelpinspiration thing, check out my earlier posts to get an idea of what’s going on. Otherwise, welcome back, let’s dive right in!

I’ve had the privilege of seeing some quite fantastic beaches on my various travels. Here are five of my favourite, drawn from all from around the world. Enjoy!

This is the beach on Bird Island in the Seychelles, home to some of my favourite beaches in the world. They’re about as perfect as you can imagine!

This is the beach on Fraser Island in Australia, which is also notable for being a road. Australia has over 30,000km of coastline, so as you would imagine, has a pretty wide selection of beaches to choose from. Here’s a post of some of my favourite beaches of Australia for your viewing enjoyment.

Across to Europe now, and to the south of France, near the Spanish border. This beach isn’t too far from the town of Leucate, which is a very popular holiday destination in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.

Barcelona Beach filtered HDR (Custom)

Cities with beaches rule! Like Sydney or Miami, Barcelona has it’s very own beach, and it’s glorious. We visited in April, when it wasn’t so busy (or warm!), but I could imagine that in the heat of the summer this would be a welcome respite from the heat.

Kaikoura Beach

Finally, my beach tour of the world takes us to New Zealand, which is also where the title picture is from. Prior to my year in New Zealand I had no idea that this country featured such gorgeous beach scenery. I was happy to be proven wrong, as this shot of the Kaikoura headland demonstrates!

So those were five beaches from around the world – this week’s Travel #Pinspiration theme. As always, let me know what you thought of them in the comments below!

I often get asked what gear I use for my photos. Check out my full Photography Gear post to find out!
