But what are considered the most beautiful beaches in the world for 2021?
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. The next time your mind starts to drift toward a shoreline vacation, here are some suggestions on some of the most beautiful beach locales the world has to offer.
Anse Source d’Argent, Seychelles
This beach, nestled La Digue island in the Seychelles, is known for its striking rock formations, worn smooth over centuries by wind and water. While rough waters sculpted these huge stones, the waters of Anse Source d’Argent are clear and calm these days as a coral reef shelters it from rough seas. This eye-catching locale has been a popular shooting location for commercials, including Bacardi Rum, Campari and Bounty Chocolate — and it’s not hard to see why!
