May 24, 2023 – A list of the 50 most beautiful beaches in the world has been published, and a Croatian beach has made it there.
The World’s 50 Best Beaches list was created taking into account natural beauty, space, popularity, beach activities, and the cleanliness and calmness of the sea, and was voted by more than 750 of the world’s most recognized and experienced influential travel writers, journalists, and experts, writes Index.
Lucky Bay in Australia took the top spot thanks to its clean sand, turquoise water, and population of kangaroos.
“The friendly kangaroos are not the only thing making this the best in the world. Lucky Bay has some of the most pristine snow-white sand and incredible turquoise water you will ever see. Stretching over 5 km guarantees you’ll find a spot less crowded to simply take in all the natural beauty,” says the portal’s explanation.
Anse Source D’Argent in Seychelles is in second place.
“And trust us, it is BREATHTAKING, with granite boulders by the water shore and pinkish sands as a perfect contrast to the crystal clear, turquoise water. This beach will genuinely make you feel like you just stepped into a paradise painting. Anse Source d’Argent is located in the southwest of La Digue island, and people travel to Seychelles just to go there! Also, it is not only a gorgeous spot to chill and take thousands of photos, the shallow clear water allows for fun activities like great swimming for families and spectacular snorkeling with a vibrant coral reef,” they explained their choice.
Pasjača Beach in Konavle was ranked 39
The third place was taken by Hidden Beach in the Philippines, hidden behind high limestone cliffs, making it impossible to see it from outside. The small cove can only be reached by boat, followed by swimming through a small opening, and the crystal clear, shallow water surrounded by white sand and limestone walls with lush greenery and palm trees guarantees pleasure.
A Croatian beach also made it on this list. Pasjača Beach in Konavle took 39th place. This beach is located in a secluded, inaccessible area where the rocks drop steeply into the Adriatic Sea. You can reach this beautiful beach, surrounded by natural beauty, by taking the stairs in the rocks.
In 2020, this Croatian beach was declared the best European beach on the European Best Destinations portal.
