Best Sand Beach! Pink Sands, Harbour Island, Bahamas
Harbour Island is only half a mile wide and three miles long yet has some of the nicest sand beaches with an unbelievable laid back atmosphere. The island has less than 2,000 locals and only a few tourists making it a special choice for a relaxing getaway. This tiny island was once the home of the capital city of the Bahamas, Dunmore Town. Enjoy the Georgian Architecture, stroll through the tiny shops on quaint streets. And of course, lap up the sun on the beautiful pink sand beaches!
Most Romantic Beach! Matira Beach, Bora Bora, Tahiti
Just 18 miles long, Bora Bora is an enchanted tropical island in the French Polynesian chain. Nick-named the Romantic Island, Bora Bora lies in a secluded lagoon and boasts many secluded white sandy beaches. Intimate hotels and the quiet, relaxed South Seas atmosphere add to the feeling of romance. The secluded Matira Beach offers visitors all of that romantic atmosphere with bright turquoise water and brilliant South Seas sunsets!
Best Beach in America! Hanauma Bay, Oahu, Hawaii
In May of 2004, Dr. Stephen Leatherman, a respected environmental scientist, named Hanauma Bay America’s best beach. About 10 miles east of Waikiki, one will find the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Nearly three thousand people visit the area every day to enjoy swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling and picnics. The bay itself is believed to be a 35,000 year old volcanic crater floor. Swimmers and snorkellers take special pleasure from the sheltered bay and are often greeted by a host of tropical reef fish.
Best Family Beach! Palm Beach, Aruba
Cond Nast Traveler have named this gorgeous white sand beach as one of the 12 best beaches in the world.

Swimmers, sailors, fishermen and kids will all find Palm Beach, Aruba as an idyllic family vacation retreat!
Best Kept Secret Beach! Fernando de Noronha, Brazil
Very few have had the opportunity to enjoy the unspoiled, breathtaking beaches of Fernando de Noronha. Only a mere 420 visitors are allowed on the island – off the northeast coast of Brazil – at any time. In 1988, the island was declared a marine national park. Being part of a volcanic archipelago, the island treats visitors to towering rock “sculptures”, pristine waterfalls with natural swimming pools and of course the exquisite white beaches tucked below jagged cliffs and caves.
Best Ancient Beaches! Tulum, Mexico
Dating from as early as 250 A.D., ancient Mayan ruins tower over the beaches. Swimmers and sunbathers can’t help but be swept up in the aura of ancient mystery when they look up from the beach. White sand beaches and crystal blue waters greet visitors to the water paradise!
These are but a miniscule sampling of the wonderful and beautiful tropical beaches awaiting vacationers.
