Stretching out on the world’s best beach won’t come easy. Baía do Sancho is accessible only by boat or via ladders descending down steep cliffs to the golden sand below. The beach is in Fernando de Noronha, an archipelago some 220 miles (354 kilometers) off the coast of mainland Brazil, part of the country’s Pernambuco state. Visitors to the islands arrive by plane or boat.

Rest Of The Best

The Caribbean earns three spots in the 2023 top 10, including No. 2 Eagle Beach in Aruba, No. 5 Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos and No. 9 Varadero Beach in Cuba. Last year, Grace Bay and Varadero beaches were ranked first and second, respectively. Eagle Beach was No. 5 in 2022. The top 10 list also includes one beach in the United States – Maui’s Kaanapali Beach at No. 10. The beach ranks first on Tripadvisor’s separate list of top 10 US beaches for 2023. Ka’anapali didn’t make it into the top 10 on the global list in 2022 and was No. 17 on the US list last year.

Located on the island’s western shore, Ka’anapali boasts three miles of white sand and a famed cliff diving ritual at Puʻu Kekaʻa, or Black Rock. Each evening at sunset, torches along the cliff are lit by a diver who then plunges off the rock in a reenactment of a feat by Maui’s King Kahekili. While Ka’anapali Beach was the only beach to break into the top 10 on the global list, two more US beaches came hot on its heels at Nos. 11 and 12: Siesta Beach on Siesta Key, Florida, and Jekyll Island, Georgia’s Driftwood Beach. Magens Bay on St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands also cracked the top 25 list at No. 24.

Australia earns one slot in the top 10, with No. 3 Cable Beach in Broome, located in Western Australia’s Kimberley region. One of Broome’s most sought-after experiences is a sunset camel ride along this 14-mile (22-kilometer) stretch of Indian Ocean coastline. Cable Beach was No. 11 on last year’s global list.
