10 of the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches

Whitehaven Beach, Australia

With its milky shoreline and gently lapping waves, this remote four-mile swath in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef–sheltered Whitsunday Islands chain is a sunbather’s dream. That’s because Whitehaven claims some of the world’s purest sand, a powder-like sediment that’s so white it doesn’t heat up and burn your toes even at the sun’s peak. The beach is backed by rainforest, but nature lovers should train their eyes on the turquoise waters and shifting shoals, where you’ll spot dolphins and lumbering sea turtles in the distance.
