One of the most interesting things about travelling is discussing previous travel stories with other travelers. Sure the “doing” portion of a trip is always super fun, but don’t you just love debating over and comparing your preferences and memories with other tourists that have seen and accomplished similar things? Debating the nicest beaches in a specific area, country, continent or even the world is one of the most riveting discussions to have. In many cases, a short discussion can open your mind up to different angles and views that you probably wouldn’t have ever thought of otherwise. Below is an overview of 5 of the major points that are often debated in the process of selecting and ranking the nicest beaches in the world.
5) Sand Color
It’s hard to imagine the true extent tourists go to find a clean strip of white sand these days. Probably one of the most exaggerated and fabricated traits that travel guide books and travel agencies like to rave about is sand color. Many beaches that are called white are commonly not white. The fact of the matter, however, is that really white beach sand is rare to find. Some tourists love brown, golden and black sand beaches, so why not visit a variety of them to make the decision for yourself?
