Not all people live close to the shore and many actually have never traveled to a place with a beach in their entire lives. Even if it’s unbelievable to people who have been to the beach almost every weekend, it is a life-changing experience to see the ocean for many people. However, people who have lived close to the beach, or traveled extensively, would know that not all beaches are equal and that some of them offer far more activities than others. If you want to literally change your perspective, here are some beaches to keep in mind for your future vacations.

Firstly, there cannot be a beach list without mentioning Camps Bay Beach in Cape Town, South Africa. This location is great to witness both the classic beauty of beaches, with an interesting added touch. The water is a sharp turquoise, clear of any impurities and pollution, while the sand is a bright beige color. Alongside this stunning contrast, any traveler can look into the distance and see different rock formations.

Also, Whitehaven Beach in Queensland, Australia is one of the most interesting types of beaches you will ever see. While it may present itself as just another beach at first glance, if you visit when the tides are changing, you’ll see the water looking for different paths through the sand. This leads to a gorgeous swirling pattern all the way down to the beach, with different depths of water creating a different stunning shade of blue.

Lastly, a fascinating recommendation is the Shipwreck Beach in Zakynthos, Greece. After doing a little bit of work to get there by boat, you’ll be created with a small cove, within which is a white pebble beach, perfectly reflecting the sun off of it. While sunbathing, you will be surrounded by incredibly tall cliffs and beautiful greenery on top of them.
