The best beaches for relaxing by the sea have been named

The sea and sandy coasts do not depend on the season, as warm countries can offer sunny vacations even in winter. In 2024, the rating of the best beaches in the world was topped by the surfer's paradise in beautiful Australia. This place attracts tourists from all over the world with its crystal clear waves and incredible views.

Lonely Planet has collected the best beaches in the world, which their team has visited and made conclusions about the best places from their own experience. However, European countries are also on the list, so you can go on vacation without long flights.

1. Byron Bay Pass, Australia

This place is called a "surfer's paradise". At Cape Byron, the easternmost point of Australia, you can learn how to conquer the wave from scratch - there are also lessons for beginners.

The Palm Valley Trail, which is located nearby, goes through the palm rainforest to picnic and barbecue areas. However, the most scenic route is the 3.7 km long Cape Byron Road, where you can enjoy the stunning houses of Vategos and Little Vategos beaches and views of the roaring sea.

However, as of 2023, the use of a surfboard leash is required by law, so you should be careful.

Known for its amazing sunsets, which locals often admire, Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro stretches for 3 km.

For example, Posto 9 is a favorite place for young people, artists, and hippies, Posto 8 is where children from favelas (slums) gather, Posto 7 is popular with surfers, and Posto 10 is where volleyball, soccer, and futsal are played.

5. Sarakiniko, Milos Cyclades, Greece

Centuries of wave and wind erosion have caused the rocks on the beach to curve, creating gentle slopes and caves from which to jump. Sarakiniko is not a typical sandy beach. It has no sand at all.

This place is a favorite beach among the Greeks. However, due to the crowds of tourists, it is better to visit it in September-October or early in the morning.
