26 Most Beautiful Beaches You’ll Find Anywhere

5. Lopes Mendes, Ilha Grande, Brazil

The harder you have to work for something, the more it can be appreciated. If that’s true, then visitors will absolutely appreciate the beauty of Lopes Mendes, a two-mile stretch of coastline accessible from Rio after a three-hour car drive, a ferry ride, a water taxi and a brief hike through lush forest. Crystal clear waters are breathtaking, and the typical beach restaurants are replaced by an abundance of almond and palm trees.

4. Barnes Bay, Anguilla

There are over 30 beaches on the island of Anguilla, but only one can take the honor of being most beautiful. Barnes Bay, despite being just a short walk from several local hotels and resorts, doesn’t typically attract big crowds, letting you appreciate its natural beauty. The white sand is soft and powder-like, and the waters of the ocean are a kaleidoscope of colors in green, blue and turquoise. This is easily one of the most photographed destinations on the island of Anguilla, and definitely for good reason.

3. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

Bora Bora is known as the destination so nice it was named twice, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that it is home to one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Matira Beach is located on the edge of a wonderful lagoon, and green palms create a lush curtain just steps from the water. Although many of Bora Bora’s most gorgeous beaches are reserved for hotel guests, Matira Beach is open to the public, giving visitors access to their own slice of heaven no matter what hotel they’re staying at.
