  • travelettes: The beach at ko pha ngan in thailand. i love beach parties and there they have the best ones
  • OysterWorldwide: One of our fave beaches is in Zanzibar. It’s just so peaceful and relaxing
  • kymri: Every beach, every inch of every coastline, is the world’s best beach. Don’t take any for granted
  • Inga_Ros: Would love to visit the Maldives someday. Have seen gorgeous beach photos from there
  • Xplore724: The Bahamas are really beautiful too if you like lovely white sand beachs and turquoise waters

Q2 via loco2: What is your ultimate beach accessory? Why?

Q4 via NickHealy: Most over-hyped beach you’ve ever visited? Why?

  • AllyToullec: Pattaya. And the islands around. Disguting beaches with fat Russians and English middle aged men. Found a condom in the see as well
  • GFexplorers: Bondi? Am I allowed to say that? Its just a normal beach, right? Do you have to be a surfer to truly appreciate it?!
  • directflights1: Waikiki Beach, Honolulu is up there too. Really skinny bit of (imported) sand with big high rise hotels along it
  • packDsuitcase: Mykonos… go to Santorini instead
  • JauntingKerrs: Secret Kalalau Beach on #NaPali coastline hike. Totally not worth the long trek when best view is before you started
  • theridingdutch: Kuta Beach in Bali,,, no doubt about that

Q5 via myislandartjon: What are your top three favorite beaches, why?

  • farihanpadilla: So far Gili Trawangan, Lombok. Its the best place to party at night and relax during the day.The other 2 are yet to be discovered
  • Ichweisswo:  Zanzibar Paje Beach, Koutsi beach on Andros, Su Giudeu Beach, Sardinia all because of its emptiness & beauty 
  • hjortur: Three most favorite beaches? Hvesta in Iceland, Cadiz in Spain and the whole south coast of Croatia 
  • SaraKateTravel: Hard to pick but I love those near Naples, FL… islands near Phuket… & those peaceful & lovely beaches/shores of western Ireland
  • kirsten_al: Rose Island, Bahamas / Redondo Beach, Northern California / near Discovery Bay, Jamaica
  • LandLopers: HARD question, going to give destinations instead. Bahamas, Outer Banks and Hawaii
