Santa Monica Beach, Cape Verde

The white sands here are perfect for relaxing with your favourite book during the day. You can also enjoy an occasional dip in the refreshing water. 

Check out some reviews on TripAdvisor:

"A vast beach that seems to go on forever!", a recent visitor said.

Another member of the travel site wrote, "Long line of white sand and blue ocean. The beach is amazing and unspoiled."

The best time to vist is from October to June.

Anse Lazio, Praslin Island, Seychelles

Voted the 6th best beach in the world by TripAdvisor users in 2015 is one of the most famous beaches on Praslin island.

It has everything you could ever want on a beach - perfect white sand, calm turquoise water and picturesque, postcard scenery.

TripAdvisor users agree writing, "No wonder why this beach rated amongst World's Top 10 Beaches…. Amazing view... Crystal Clear Water surrounded with rocks adding to its beauty….. Don't miss this place."

Another said, "If you travel to Praslin Island It should be mandatory to visit this beach. Long beach with Takamaka and palm trees. Nice place for snorkelling and swimming. A good restaurant is available there and let you take a shower after swimming."
