The world's best beach havens

A remote beach in Sicily, Italy, has been named as the best beach in the world by a survey of travellers, while an Australia beach came in third.
Rabbit Beach came top in the first annual awards for the world's best beach based on millions of reviews and ratings by international tourists on the TripAdvisor website.
Rabbit Beach, on the island of Lampedusa off the south coast of Sicily, was described as an unspoiled nature reserve that can only be accessed by boat and one of the few places in the Mediterranean where loggerhead sea turtles go to lay their eggs.
Second place went Grace Bay, Providenciales, in the Turks and Caicos, while Australia's Whitehaven Beach in Queensland came third.

 1. Rabbit Beach, Lampedusa, Italy
"The sand is white and the water so clean and crystal clear! It's just unique! while you walk into the water loads of fish swim around you." -ValeRocket

"The area is well maintained and people are very responsible - even with their cigarettes, so no litter at all. No turtles were there - several people said they had seen them in nearby Linosa Island. There are no facilities on the beach, steep climb with seating areas to rest, but there is an excellent cafe/bar at the bus stop."

 2. Grace Bay, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
"Grace Bay is a beautiful beach about 14 miles long. There are many fun restaurants on the beach including Seaside Cafe at Ocean Club West and the Flamingo Cafe at the Ocean Club East! It is also fun to snorkel at Coral Gardens!"

   3. Whitehaven Beach, Airlie Beach, Australia
"Don't expect any shade at all- do expect the finest sand in the world. the water is clear, you can see sting-rays right by your feet (be careful!) and the sea is endless. infinite tourists to an uncountable extent, yet what do you expect?"

 4. Baia do Sancho, Fernando de Noronha, Brazil
"With an unbelievable beauty, crystal waters, awesome view and a quiet atmosphere, Sancho's Bay it's a hard place to forget! However, the access to the beach is almost non-existent - or you go there by boat or climbing down 'rock stairs', but once there, you will be sure that was worth it!"

 5. Flamenco Beach, Culebra, Puerto Rico
"Have been to many many beaches but Flamenco is one of the best. Nice sand and hard enough to walk on, beautiful view of offshore reef, plenty of space to get away from the crowd (on weekends). Good food available at kiosks."

6. Playa de las Catedrales, Ribadeo, Spain
"This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It's not ideal for swimming, since the tide covers the sand completely for much of each day, but it's an unforgettable, unique experience." -dannycas

"Make sure you visit during the low tide otherwise you will not be able to see it. Once you get there you'll understand why the 'cathedral' name is attached to this magnificent natural formation. Do not miss it!"

 7. Lopes Mendes Beach, Ilha Grande, Brazil
"Need to walk 15-20 minutes in the jungle (really comfortable path) and are in a paradise. If you can go there before 11 am, you will be alone on an immense long beach. After that you will have maybe.....100 people!"

 8. Horseshoe Bay Beach, Southampton Parish, Bermuda
"Very scenic and calming. The sand is wonderfully pink and the rock formations are very interesting. We were there in winter so we had the beach to ourselves, but it was beautiful."

 9. Eagle Beach, Aruba
"A gorgeous beach to enjoy all day! The sand was sugar like & the water fantastic! The only thing I found crazy was that people get up at 5.00am to get a hut!!!"

10. Rhossili Bay, Swansea, Wales
"The beach was clean, peaceful on my visit. We also walked on the hills above the beach and saw some ancient burial sites. Great place to visit with other great beaches nearby."
