Beaches are arguably human’s favorite natural landscapes. A great percentage of people in developed countries travel to the coast during vacations to rest, recharge their batteries, and have some fun with family or friends.
Some of the most popular beaches have become heavily exploited by Man to take advantage of its natural beauty for profits: restaurants, cafes, hotels, and other beach services like sun lounger rental started to appear along the coast.
Together with the need for safety and comfort that ornamented beaches with lifeguard posts, showers, and changing rooms, all this contributed to deeply alter the natural landscape of countless beaches around the globe.
But in spite of everything, we all know some underdeveloped beach, a true natural wonder of the word that Man is yet to touch and not many people know about.
The following list shows you 7 of the most beautiful beaches in the world, each with its own particularity. These are unique places to visit that are very different from the idea of beach that inhabits your imagination: yellow sand, blue waves with foam tips, a bright breeze, and the smell of sunscreen.
#1 – Cave Beach, Algarve (Portugal)
Portugal is one of the best places to travel, especially during the summer. You can often find good travel deals(cheap flight tickets and accommodation) and the country itself is pretty inexpensive when compared to other famous south European destinations such as Italy and Greece.
The region of Algarve, located in the south and bathed by the Mediterranean Sea, has several amazing beaches and a very attractive nightlife. British people love it, so don’t be surprised if you visit it in August and all you see are pale tourists with straw hats and sunburns.
The Cave beach in Benagil is not exactly a hidden treasure. Both tourists and locals love the place, and it’s often crowded. But that doesn’t interfere with its beauty.
Accessible only by boat, this cave beach sculptured by Nature itself is the perfect place to spend a relaxing day tanning and watching the sunlight pouring through the cave’s holes. Just be prepared for an absurd amount of boats arriving and departing throughout the day.
