A little while back I brought you a selection of our hotels that were featured in TripAdvisor’s travellers’ choice awards. Now I want to show you some of the best beaches from around the world that Direct Holidays fly to. These beaches have been selected by you, the travellers’, and have come in the top 25 in the world.
#6 – Playa de Ses Illetes, Formentera, Spain
The Playa de Ses Illetes beach on the small Balearic Island of Formentera and features at #6. This enchanting island has got one of the most desirable beaches in the world with soft sands and beautiful clear turquoise waters. The beach and the island of Formentera are off the coast of Ibiza, from where you can get a ferry to the island for the day.
#10 – Playa Isla, Isla Mujeres, Mexico
In 10th place we have the Playa Isla beach, in the Yucatan Peninsula on the Mexican east coast. This beach stretches along the northern coastline uninterrupted and is home to some stunning sunsets, hotels and turquoise waters. From Cancun you can get to Isla Mujeres by boat, the small strip of land is only a couple of miles off the coastline. The palm tree lined beach definitely gives you the feeling of a remote island escape only the occasional beach front hotel reminds you are near to 5* accommodation.
#17 – Elafonissi Beach, Elafonissi, Greece
On the largest Greek island the resort of Elafonissi has the 17th best beach in the world. The East coast of Crete is relatively untouched and is surrounded by natural beauty. Under the clear Greek skies the waters shimmer and gently lap against the white sands. Perfect for children who want to paddle in the water or adults who want to indulge themselves in luxurious settings.
