Which are the top beach destinations in the world?

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, which are top beach destinations in the world?”

Just like Snow White’s magic mirror, TripAdvisor, a United States website company that disseminates and provides reviews on relevant travel-related content conducted the contest. Top choices for the 25 beach destinations came from among its members of around 60 million and from 170 million reviews from tourists and opinions gathered from hotel and restaurant clients, as well as attractions and other businesses related to travel. These are surely the most reliable sources to pick top beach destinations in the world.

For its 2016 Travelers’ Choice awards, 25 top beach destinations were nominated and final verdict was won by Grace Bay located on the north shores of Turks and Caicos Island as the number one world’s best beach. Among its added merit is its easy access to the United States – just a 90-minute flight from Florida’s Miami.
