One of India’s most beautiful and most acclaimed beaches, Radhanagar is a stunning stretch of sugar-white sand on Havelock Island, which is a part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, off India’s eastern shore.

6. Anakena Beach, Easter Island, Chile
This beach on the infamous Easter Island in Chile, far out into the large Pacific Ocean, has soft coral sands and crystal clear water. A considerable amount of palm trees in the sand offer shade, and eight of the island’s famous storied stone statues look over this earlier sacred land of the island’s noble family.
7. Whitehaven Beach, Australia
Whitehaven Beach, very correctly juxtaposed, has really pretty white sands, dark green rainforests, and crystal clear waters. It’s a wild island, part of the Great Barrier Reef, and by far the most beautiful location to experience in Australia, beach-wise.

A very picturesque setting awaits you at Navagio Beach, an exposed cove on the famous coast of Zakynthos. Tourists and travellers come from all corners of the world to grab photos of the incredibly famous ship wreck, called Panagiotis.
