One of the most famous beaches in the world, Seven Mile Beach is among the many reasons why Cayman is famous as an ideal tropical destination. With sparkling waters and coral sands it’s so perfect it almost doesn’t look real.

4. Maundays Bay – Anguilla

Maundays Bay might not have the grand size of Rendezvous Bay and Shoal Bay, but it makes up for it with its white-sand shores and clear, azure waters. It’s what you imagine the perfect Caribbean island to look like.

At night, you can see the lights from neighbouring St. Martin island. It’s beautiful.

5. Maho Beach – St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands

Maho beach has it all. A coconut palm fringed beach, light surf, white sand – it’s no wonder that it’s considered the jewel of St. John. It’s part of Virgin Islands National Park and is free for all to enjoy.

The water is usually calm, with shallow areas and tropical fish. Keep an eye out for turtles swimming nearby.

6. Pig Beach – Bahamas

You’ve surely seen this Insta-famous beach all over social medial. Big Major Cay in the Exumas is uninhabited and the pigs are not native to the island, so it’s still not known how the pigs first got there.

Book a day trip boat ride to see this beach’s pristine waters and swim with piglets.
