- A truly Maldivian experience -
80 miles south-east of Cancun lies jungle-covered Tulum, featuring dazzling white limestone beaches and crystal clear waters. Ancient Mayan ruins dotted upon the cliffs loom protectively over the unspoiled paradise, creating an atmosphere of opulent mystery. The beach has so far managed to avoid the resort developments that frequent many of the other Riviera Maya beaches.
EL NIDO, PALAWAN, Indonesia
Fairy-tale meets castaway at El Nido, Palawan. Draped in jungle foliage, surrounded by lustrous lagoons and featuring flowing waterfalls, it’s the dreamiest location to say ‘I do’. Spend your days island-hopping on a long tail boat, discovering vibrant coral reefs, or simply absorbing the wondrous beauty surrounding you. This charming haven is a truly tropical escape in paradise.
PAMPELONNE, St. Tropez, France
Pampelonne is a three-mile sandy stretch filled with premier beach clubs, gourmet restaurants and a dazzling nightlife. Every inch of this beach oozes glitz and glamour. Gaze at the harbour’s ritzy yachts or join A-listers lounging in the exclusive beach clubs that line the coast.
GILI MENO, Indonesia
The smallest of Indonesia’s three famous Gili islands, Gili Meno is an idyllic tropical escape, luring honeymooners in with its atmosphere of secretive seclusion. For divers and snorkellers, there’s an abundance of marine life beneath the waves; turtles and tropical fish swim freely around the island. Choose to stay in a rustic beach bungalow, waking to the sound of the rolling waves — or amongst the charming coconut groves, listening to the rustling leaves as you drift off to sleep.
KE’E BEACH, Kauai, Hawaii
Think luscious greenery, secluded shores, and superb surfing — Ke’e
Beach (pronounced Keh-AY) is paradise on earth. The road literally ends at Ke’e, the last accessible beach on the north side of the island. From Ke’e, you can absorb the blissful views of dancing palm trees, towering green mountains, and a beautiful sunset extending down the westward shore of the Napali Coast.
RHOSSILI BAY, Swansea, Wales
“We were going to camp for a fortnight in Rhossili...in a field above the sweeping five mile beach,” wrote Dylan Thomas. And who can blame him! Breathtaking panoramic views of the bay are best enjoyed from one of the many walking routes along the coast. In the summer, the luscious greens and rustic browns of the cliffs contrast beautifully with the deep blue of the sea.
BORA BORA, French Polynesia
Become enamoured with idyllic Bora Bora, an internationally acclaimed luxury honeymoon destination. Northwest of Tahiti, this paradisiacal lagoon warmly welcomes visitors with crystal clear waters and picture-perfect beaches. Take a 4x4 jeep safari, visit the dive centres, experience exhilarating shark feedings, or simply spend your days swimming and sunbathing.
CALA GOLORITZÉ, Sardinia, Italy
Most of us associate Italy with delicious food and rich culture, often forgetting its wealth of beaches. Sardinia, with more than 1,000km of coastline, offers secluded beaches that rival the Caribbean. The island’s tall peaks and diverse underwater marine life make it great for those with an adventurous spirit. Its secluded location off the beaten track also adds to the dreamy allure.
ST. JEAN BEACH, St. Barts, Caribbean
Of course, no Top 10 Beach List would be complete without a trip to the Caribbean. And with its incredible natural landscape and turquoise waters, St. Barts is the perfect luxury island getaway and a must-see destination for anyone considering the Caribbean for their honeymoon. St. Jean is one of the most popular and stylish beaches on the island, complete with the very best upscale beachfront resorts.
