Planning your next exotic beach getaway yet? If so, TripAdvisor can help! Take a look at their guide to the world's best beaches for 2016, and start packing that suntan lotion. And maybe a lotto jackpot from GiantLottos.com too, as some of these beach holidays won't come cheap!
If you're looking for seclusion, Nacpan Beach in the Philippines is where you'll find it - completely isolated, serene, and far from the sardine-packed crowds of usual tourist beaches. You won't be sipping Mai Tais on the shores, mostly because you won't find a bar or a restaurant in sight - but what you will find is total peace, and beauty as far as the eye can see.
Myanmar might not be your first choice for a sun-loving holiday, but when you see Ngapali beach, you'll immediately change your mind. Think expanses of white sand framed by palm trees, gently lapping waves, and an atmosphere of complete relaxation. Whether you choose to spend your time sunbathing, swimming, snorkelling or exploring one of the nearby fishing villages, you'll find it well worth the trip.
Looking for a beach experience that's a little out of the ordinary? Then you'll love Flamenco Beach in Puerto Rico, a unique blend of beauty and history, and a dream come true for snorkelling fans. Stretch out on the sandy shores, explore the waters teeming with colourful fish, or take a walk past the unusual tanks lying on the beach, left over from long forgotten military practices. It's a beach vacation you won't forget in a hurry!
Of course no list of top beaches would be complete without at least one entry from the Seychelles - and its Anse Lazio beach is a must-visit for every sun and sand lover. White shores, crystal-clear waves and complete tranquillity mark this half-kilometre long beach as a jewel in the Seychelles crown - so pack your bags and get ready to book your spot on the sand!
In English its name means 'paradise' - and when you visit Playa Paraiso in Cuba, you'll instantly see why. Shallow, calm waters make this a perfect family destination, one ideal for stretching out and relaxing for hours on end.
Feted by TripAdvisor as the top beach of 2016, Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos is THE place to lay out your towel and catch some rays. From white sands to turquoise waters, everything you look for in a beach you'll find here - along with your favourite sundowners too, happily provided by the nearby shops and restaurants. Of course, you'll need your passport for a visit so make sure to book your ticket before the hordes of holidaymakers arrive. And if you need any help in paying for your flight, GiantLottos.com will be only too happy to help - in the form of a fantastic lotto jackpot! Buy your tickets online now, and you could be tanning under the Turks and Caicos sun before you know it!
