The jet-black shore of Punalu’u, which was formed from the lava from nearby Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, is striking and memorable.It is a rocky beach, so not one that’s recommended for swimming, however the unique sight of coconut palms contrasted against black sand, plus the napping Hawaiian green sea turtles, certainly makes up for it.Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island, AustraliaWhitehaven Beach is the most photographed beach in Australia, and it’s easy to see why thanks to the aquamarine water and brilliant white sand.A repeat winner of clean beach awards, Whitehaven Beach is on the largest of the 74 Whitsunday Islands dotted along the Great Barrier Reef. The beach is only accessible by boat or seaplane, and as the sand is almost pure silica, it doesn’t retain heat from the sun so it’s always cool underfoot.Mogren Beach, CroatiaMogren Beach in Croatia is actually split into two parts, with the second small beach reached via a small cave tunnel, or an easy swim round. The beach is accessible by car or a short walk from the Old Town.Surrounded by limestone cliffs and lush green foliage, visitors can choose to relax on the sun loungers or get adventurous with cliff jumping, hiking or rock climbing.Cala Saladeta, IbizaHead to the west coast of Ibiza to find this gorgeous little cove. You’ll need to take the footpath from nearby Cala Salada beach to find the jade waters and soft sands of Cala Saladeta.Be sure to pack a picnic, and perhaps an umbrella as a sun shade, as there are no amenities here. Instead you’ll find peaceful snorkelling in this sheltered bay, plus the chance to enjoy a stunning sunset.Durdle Door Beach, EnglandMany people will be familiar with this popular beach on the south coast of the UK, thanks to the striking Durdle Door rock formation that extends out into the sea.It’s a 20 minute steep walk plus over 100 steps to access the beach, but once there you’ll be greeted by a pebble and shingle beach surrounded by towering cliffs and clear waters, and of course, this famous view.Has our best beaches bucket list inspired your next adventure?
