FlightNetworks World’s Best 50 Beaches

Outstanding beaches from around the world 

There’s a dreamy allure to blue waters and sandy beaches. Shuffling off our work fashions for minimalist (or textile-free) Vitamin-D-seeking warmth from the rays of the sun. The relaxation of lounging beachside with a cool glass of your favorite beverage while staring mystically into the steady movement of the surf lapping the shores is blissful.

We love beaches and flock to them often. There truly are some outstanding beaches that stand out from others and offer the “WOW’ factor by many magnitudes – these are the gems that need to be added to make our personal beach bucket lists.

One of our partners – The FlightNetwork – has compiled a Top 50 of the World’s Best Beaches and offers them up to you to enhance your beach bucket list. I’m certain these are beach gems you will want to explore. What a great list - I’ve visited a lot of beaches and only visited 2 on this list! I see many more beach opportunities in my future travels!

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
