Top Ten Beaches world wide

punta cana beach

What are the top ten beaches world wide? Well, our personal top ten beaches list places 6 of them right here in Punta Cana.

The six beaches that make up the 63 km. stretch of Punta Cana beaches from North to South are (Macao Beach, Areno Gordo Beach, El Cortecito, Bavaro Beach, Cabeza de Toro and Cabo Engano Beach)

You’ll see all kinds of different lists from different souces as to where the top beaches in the world are – they all contain biases. There are many factors that go into choosing the best beach: white sand; water color and quality; sun; wind; the people on the beach and how many of them there are. Whether they’re family beaches, g string beaches, au natural beaches, adult beaches, European bikini beaches or topless beaches in Punta Cana. Sorry, I couldn’t resist. There are so many variables that any list becomes skewed depending on the criteria.

At the Punta Cana Information Guide, we think that the most important aspects of a beach are sand quality and water color as well as average water temperatures and average annual precipitation. Keeping these four criteria in mind, it becomes pretty clear that Punta Cana is the most beautiful beach in the world!

Punta Cana Beaches Sand and water color

When you look at an aerial picture of a Punta Cana beach the first thing that strikes you is the seemingly unending strip of heavenly white sand. The second is the beautiful turquoise waters that change in shade and hue until they meet the shore. When you first look at pictures of the best beaches in the world you may think that the colors have been artificially brightened (some have). Your first trip to Punta Cana will make you a believer though.

Punta Cana has the most consistent weather of any beach destination in the Caribbean, it hardly ever rains. The weather is beautiful and the waters are warm and clean – what else is there to consider?

We’re in the midst of piecing together pages on our top ten beaches world wide and what questions we receive about the beaches in Punta Cana. Here are the questions we’ve been asked and intend to answer. Although some of these topics are a little out of focus with our site (for example, are there Caribbean au natural beaches in Punta Cana?) it’s often a good idea to know what to avoid when you’re planning a trip. If I was planning a family vacation to what I thought was one of the top ten beaches world wide and there was a nude beach right next to the hotel I was staying at – I’d want to know about it. Don’t worry though, you will never find anything of an offensive nature on this site.
