The Best Beaches Of The World

Deep into gloomy January and the winter blues are in full flow. It’s always the toughest of months but there are ways to counter the January blues. The best way, in the eyes of Elysium Magazine, is through booking a holiday. The excitement of booking the trip of a lifetime, the anticipation as the date draws near and the sheer excitement of actually heading away cannot be rivalled.


In this feature, Elysium Magazine looks at beach holidays – but no ordinary beach mind you. These are the best beaches of the world, some of the most idyllic, picture-perfect and utterly stunning beaches this world has to offer. Use this as holiday inspiration or simply ponder which shade of azure blue sea appeals most to the discerning gent.


Bora Bora, Tahiti

So good they named it twice. Set amongst the stunning islands that make up French Polynesia in the South Pacific, Bora Bora is a little sliver of land (just 18 miles long) that lies in a protected lagoon bordered by porcelain white sandy beaches. The whole place is easy on the eye but Matira Point arguably edges this contest. Bora Bora contains numerous isolated beaches, intimate hotels and the quiet atmosphere craved by anyone looking to truly get away from the hustle of urban life with the good lady in tow.

Costa Smeralda, Sardinia

The allure of stunning coastline and luxurious lifestyles needn’t be found purely on long haul trips. Sometimes attractions are closer to home – the Costa Smeralda in northern Sardinia, Italy, is very much a case in point. Drenched in Mediterranean sunshine, these white sandy beaches are the playground of Europe’s jet set. The sea varies in dazzling shades of translucent aquamarine and emerald green – all within a two-hour flight. Or simply get yourself a super yacht and moor it amongst the millionaire’s row in Porto Cervo.
