There are beaches in a massive amount of the countries on earth, but if you’re from Canada like me there may be some of those beaches that aren’t so great. If you want to get out into the world and experience the true beaches of the world, this is the list for you.

#3: Australia

One of the biggest things Australia is known for is it’s incredible surfing, this incidentily makes for some of the most pristine beaches on the planet. Along the southern coast you will find some of the whitest sand you will ever see, they even boast the whitest beach on earth (Hyams Beach) according to traveltriangle.com. Just make sure to bring loads and loads of sun screen as there is virtually no ozone left.

#2: Bora Bora

This one is certainly no shock as millions of tourists flood to Bora Bora every year to experience the tropics. It is one of the most beautiful places and has some of the best weather you will experience but has become extremely touristy. Along with this it is polluted in a way it wasn’t until recent years. Despite this it remains gorgeous and a must have adventure if you want to relax in the sun.

#1: Philippines

For some reason this is actually a surprise to many who haven’t been to these islands, they are full of natural beauty however, and despite gaining in popularity the islands should not be as busy as Hawaii or Bora Bora. It is a long trip to get here but once you do it is not simply beaches and relaxation, it is a whole cultural experience you won’t forget anytime soon.
