10. Playa Norte, Isla Mujeres

The tenth best beach in the world on Trip Advisor’s list will have you confused about where the water ends and the sky begins.

Reviewers have lamented over just how blue this water is, so much so that they say you’ll confuse it with the sky. Along with powdery white sand, there’s not a lot to find wrong with Playa Norte, located on Isla Mujeres.

It’s certainly considered the best beach on the island.

9. Bavaro Beach, Dominican Republic

Bavaro beach is one of the biggest reasons why the foot traffic in Punta Cana is so heavy. If you’re someone who gets a lot out of big crowds and the atmosphere that comes along with it, you’ll want to visit Bavaro beach.

Bavaro beach is protected by an offshore reef, which means it’s the perfect place for a swim or a sunbathe. Its crystal clear waters will have you in awe as you swim around and take in the beautiful scenery.

If you’re someone who enjoys snorkeling, you’ll want to add Bavaro beach to your bucket list.

8. Seven Mile Beach, Jamaica

While we’ve got more than one seven mile beach on this list, each brings unique features to the table. This means you’ve got no choice but to visit them all!

Reviewers claim this beach to be the best beach in the Caribbean, which is a promising vote of confidence. With golden sands and transparent water, it’s easy to see why pirates used to be so drawn to this piece of the Caribbean coastline.

7. Clearwater Beach, Florida

There are some more remote beaches out there, and then there are ones that are a bit closer to civilization. It can be hard to find those that are closer with a reputation as good as their more private counterparts.

Clearwater beach in Florida has managed to achieve this with its powdery white sand and see-through water. If you get lucky, you may even spot a dolphin or two playing in the shallows.

6. La Concha Beach, Spain

There’s another urban beach on our list that is in hot competition with Clearwater beach in Florida -except it’s halfway around the world.

For a beach that’s so close to high rise apartments and numerous places to eat, La Concha is still a relatively beautiful beach. Spend the day playing in the shallows before hitting happy hour at the local bars.
