These are the world’s top beaches for ‘wow’ factor 2018


Spain dominates a list of the world's most breathtaking beaches that includes coastlines in Kenya, Thailand, the Dominican Republic, Israel, Indonesia and even the UK.

Whitehaven Beach, Australia one of the beaches with the wow-factor according to The Beach Inspector.

Beach-Inspector bills itself as the “first professional beach information platform” covering 1,600 beaches in 52-holiday regions around the world that have been tested on-site against up to 120 criteria.

[post_ads]Over the last three years, “Beach inspectors” were dispatched to destinations around the world where they spent two days digitalizing and evaluating beaches on everything from sand and water quality, facilities (restaurants, bars, showers), child friendliness, “flirt factor” and visual beauty.

Beaches were then categorized under five broad themes — “Wow” beaches, party, water sports, special ambience and classic holiday.

Beaches filed under the “Wow” category are destinations that “take your breath away” and create lifelong memories.

Of the 21 destinations that made the list, five are in Spain and three in Thailand.

Amidst predictable tropical, Caribbean and Mediterranean destinations, the selection also includes the shores of Kenya (Manda Bay and Diani Beach), and Porthcurno Beach in Cornwall, England, which features white sand and dramatic rock faces.

The concept is not unlike the list of top 10 beaches in the US released every year from Stephen P. Leatherman, better known as Dr Beach, who holds a PhD in environmental coastal sciences.

Beach-Inspector, however, covers beaches around the world.
Here are the ‘Wow’ beaches in the Beach-Inspector selection:
