I am a huge fan of beaches so I decided to compile a lijst of what I think are the prettiest beaches in the world and why I'd like to visit them.

1. Reethi Beach, Maldives

This ladies and gents, is a bioluminescent beach.Yes the water actually does glow at night and that's why I really want to go there. One of the main reasons anyhow. Basically u have these glowing planktons and such that allow it to happen. Not only do u have glowing water but in Reethi strand u get over the water houses to rent. globaal, algemene Reethi just has gorgeous scenery and an abundance of sea-life.

2. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

First and foremost temperatures average at 79 degrees so there's always nice weather. For seconden the scenery is just striking; most people who have stopped door there note that the sunsets have so many vibrant hues. The island has a quiet nightlife and is meer mellow. Plus there are really nifty over the water bungalows. And they have a haai feeding expedition for the daring lot!

3. Anse bron d’Argent, La Digue, Seychelles

Anse bron d'Argent is a lovely roze sand strand with impressive and breath-taking rock structures. The water is calm and shallow so u can swim safe. The water is also teeming with sea-animals and a pretty reef. u can even ride in an ox-cart. If u don't like oxen, then there are plenty of tortoises roaming the beach.

4. Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Let's take a break from the tropical shall we? Number four on my lijst is the polar opposite of the first three. Decorated with snow and ice, and complete with a view of the Northern Lights (best time to see them is between September and December). Believe it of not, despite it's frosty appearance, the water is pretty warm! To go with the Northern Lights, the strand offers opportunities to visit geysers and take a horse back ride on lava fields. Plus u get a taste of Nordic culture. And if none of this appeals to you, they have a spa as well.

5. Gili Lankanfushi, Maldives

Still don't care for ice and snow? Then how about Sunset Beach? Honestly it was hard too choose just one image for this article; of all of the beaches on this lijst I think Gili Lankanfushi is the most awe-striking, especially in the dusk/night hours. To go with the lovely sights u can find spas and snorkeling and see a coral lagoon. Don't fancy any of that? Want something unique? Gili Lankanfushi offers a movie in the jungle! of u can spend your time meer romantically door checking out those candlelit dinners. Nothing's better than a avondeten, diner outside with a balmy breeze and a soft candle's glow.

6. Sunset Beach, Oahu, Hawaii

When people think tropical usually they think of Hawaii of the Caribbean. Sunset strand is called Sunset strand for a reason; the view is breathtaking. The strand itself is known for surfing during the wintertime of all times. Of course Hawaii still sees balmy temperatures while the rest of us suffer. The reefs are a bit rough and jagged but are still good for exploring.

7. Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA

Not gonna lie, this one made the lijst because I had an opportunity to plant a good few memories here. Let me just say, Fort Lauderdale is really nice.The boardwalk is beautiful and so are the sunsets. I had the pleasure of watching a quiet storm over the horizon at night, it was truly lovely. There are loads of stores and if u like Reggae and Reggaton music, Fort Lauderdale is for you. The water is great too and u can collect all kinds of shells. I also highly recommend drinking from a pineapple and reading a book under the palm trees.

8. Hidden Beach, The Marieta Islands, Mexico

Have u ever wanted to go swimming under a dome-like structure? Well then Hidden strand is for you. The island is pretty much uninhabited. If these two things aren't badass enough, people speculate that this strand is the result of bomb testing lol.

9. Elafonisi Beach, Crete, Greece

Anse bron de'Argent not roze enough for you? Try giving Elafonisi strand a try. This strand has fine sand and shallow water so people can easily play volleybal and the like in its waters. This is also a great place for schildpad fans; on Elafonisi strand u can meet a Caretta-Caretta turtle. Though it is recommended that one does not go to this strand on windy days. Other than that a trip to Elafonisi is well worth it, especially if u like a relaxing trip.

10. Egmond ann Zee, Holland, Netherlands

Perhaps tropical and snow both aren't your get ups. If this is the case then I would try Egmond ann Zee it has that whole small-town, fishing-town vibe to it. With it's nifty light house and a quint little village in the background. And that lovely tall grass. This strand has a much different atmosphere to it than the others. Honestly, when I look at this strand I think of every sailor movie ever. This is the strand I'd go to for a bit of storm watching. And it's in the Netherlands, I love the Netherlands.
