Australia wins the World’s Best Beach of 2021 in Tripadvisors’ Traveler’s Choice Awards.
Want to keep the summer vibes alive? If you’re on the hunt for the perfect beachside spot to escape to this month, we’ve found the perfect spot to add to your radar. In fact, it’s even taken out the title of the World’s Best Beach of 2021.
That’s right, one of Australia’s own beaches has earned the title of the best beach to visit in the world. You’ll have to head north to find this pristine coastal oasis, set alongside the iconic Great Barrier Reef. And to make it even more exclusive, this beach is only accessible by boat, seaplane or helicopter.
The beach in question is Australia’s Whitehaven Beach, taking out the title of the world’s best beach as well as being named the best beach in the South Pacific. With its soft white sand and clear turquoise water, it’s no surprise it’s a firm favourite among locals and travelers alike.
Plus, it’s not the only Australian beach to be listed on the world’s best beaches list. The iconic Turquoise Bay in Exmouth, Australia has ranked as the sixth-best beach in the world. Plus, Australian beaches have dominated the top 10 beaches in the South Pacific, with over 50% of the beaches located in Queensland and Western Australia.
The Traveler’s Choice Best Beaches In The World list has been curated by Tripadvisor, giving travelers the chance to review and rank their favourite beachside destinations. The winners have been based on the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings from Tripadvisor travelers in 2020.
