Wish You Were Here! Trip Advisor Reveals the Best Beaches in the World!

For those of you who are longing for sun, sea and sand already (and it's only February) you'll be glad to know that Trip Advisor have rounded up their top beaches to visit in 2016!

The list of top and favoured destinations was compiled by asking Trip Advisor users to vote for their favourite beach in the world. The top voted beach was the seven mile long beach Grace Bay in the Caribbean, and with white sandy beaches combined with crystal clear turquoise water it's very easy to see why!

The Philippines, Honduras, Puerto Rica and Venezuela were also recognised for their beautiful beaches. Although the UK did not make the top 25 list at all, the most popular UK beach voted was Woolcaombe Beach in Devon.

If you fancy checking out the full list and rankings, you can view this below.
