26 Most Beautiful Beaches You’ll Find Anywhere
8. Elafonisi Beach, Greece
Elafonisi Beach is found on the tiny island of Elafonisi, which is so close to the coast of Crete that it can easily be walked to through the shallow waters that separate the two. In some places, the beach features pink sand, a unique coloring created by thousands of crushed seashells.

7. Phra Nang Beach, Thailand
This incredibly secluded beach can only be accessed by boat. Phra Nang has something for everyone: thrillseekers can enjoy cliffjumping or explore the surrounding caves in a kayak, while those looking for a relaxing escape can lounge on the sand without the hustle and bustle that typically characterizes a day at the beach.

6. Fraser Island, Queensland, Australia
If you’re looking for a beautiful beach, then head for an island that’s made up entirely of sand. Australia’s Fraser Island is the world’s largest sand island, and its coastlines won’t disappoint.
Years of erosion have led to steep bronze cliffs that face the water as well as the brilliantly colored sand on the beach. Rainbow Beach, in particular, boasts more than 60 different colors of sand, creating a visual treat that you’ll have to see to believe. Of course, the bright blue waters only set off the gorgeous hues of the cliffs and the coastline.
