2013 Best Beaches Around The World ~ Winners of 2013 Traveler’s Choice Beaches Awards


Today, the winners of the 2013 Travelers’ Choice Beach Awards were announced by TripAdvisor. What I love about these rewards is that regular travelers are the judges. These beaches were chosen based on feedback from millions of TripAdvisor travelers. The lists include over 276 beaches in Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Middle East, the U.S. and more.

I am quite surprised to see Grace Bay in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos knocked down to the #2 spot. Something tells me we are going to have to check out this Rabbit Beach in Lampedusa, Italy!

    I’m not really a huge beach person, but I can attest to two of the beaches on the list. #2 in the US, Siesta Key is absolutely amazing–the sand is like powdered sugar and perfectly cool under your feet. (I spent a month in Sarasota many years ago, doing a medical elective…I know, med school is hard, right?) And #10 in the world list, Rhossili in Wales–my mom is from Swansea, and we went to Rhossili a couple of years ago. Utterly breathtaking.

    Maybe I should make a point of visiting some of the others…

    I simply love the beaches and checking out these top 10 is simply breath taking to say the least! I agree with you Nadia, that the Rabbit Beach is certainly worth a visit.
