The white, soft sand between your feet, the turquoise clear water, the white frothy waves striking against the rugged shore and the glaring yet inviting sun make you feel comfortable, contented and happy with life.
Beaches have different meanings for different people; for some they serve as a source of relaxation time under the sun, for others the sun at the beach acts as a free tan machine, while for the rest beach time means fun time. There are thousands of beaches around the world, but we have mentioned below only ten of the most popular:
