Looking for photos of gorgeous beaches from around the world? Look no further! In today’s post I share 10 of my favourite beach photos from our travels. Enjoy!
Ok, we’ll start off with a country perhaps not as well known for its beaches as it should be – New Zealand. This is Tolaga Bay beach on the east cape of the North Island. It’s home to a 600m long wharf – the longest in the country!
The Seychelles. When it comes to beaches, the Seychelles are, in my opinion, second to none. Admittedly it’s a pricey destination, but if you love to have a fabulous beach to yourself, with pure warm waters to swim in, they are tough to beat!
A country that is well known for its beaches – Australia! And with 30.000km of coastline, you have no shortage of choice. I did a whole post on the gorgeous beaches of this country, which you can find here.
The Twelve Apostles in Australia are part of the Great Ocean Road – one of the more spectacular drives you can do in Australia. So much so that I did it twice! Read more about exploring Australia in our comprehensive guides, here.
Thailand is perhaps the quintessential beach destination. Here, the sun rises over Hua Hin, one of the more popular beach towns for locals, who pop down here from Bangkok for R&R.
Ecuador might not spring immediately to mind when you think of beaches, but it has some fantastic coastline and hundreds of tiny beach towns to choose from. Our favourite was Canoa, captured in this photo at sunset, and you can read all about that, here.
Rio de Janeiro is a city which takes its beaches seriously, and with over forty of them to choose from, you’ll never be short of an option. Whilst Ipanema and Copacabana are the most famous, we also liked the slightly quieter vibe of Sao Conrado, pictured here.
Barcelona is another city with a gorgeous beach, letting you get a break from the hustle and bustle of city life and dip your toes in the sea. We visited early in the year, when it was a bit cool and less busy, but we hope to go back and enjoy it at a busier time of year some time soon!
Finally, one from Italy, and in this case, Brindisi. Italy has a mix of private and public beaches, like many Mediterranean countries – this particular beach was a lovely publically accessible beach near the town of Brindisi.
