Grace Bay at Turks and Caicos, the first according to the TripAdvisor Oscar. In Italy, the beach of the Rabbits of Lampedusa at the top, dominates Spain for Europe
If you are looking for a destination for the next summer holidays – or some exotic spring bridge, just around the corner – you have to read the three Travelers’ Choice Beaches Awards charts just released by TripAdvisor, the travel platform with more than 600 million reviews and opinions for accommodations, hotels, restaurants and experiences in every corner of the world. The most beautiful in the world? Or, at least, the best reviewed? It’s the Grace Bay at Turks and Caicos, the Caribbean (pictured above). Oh yes, like to win easy, to international travelers.
On the Italian level, however, the first in the ranking is the beach of the Rabbits of Lampedusa, a gem of the Mediterranean, in front of the beach of Tropea and the Pelosa di Stintino, in Sardinia (where the mayor has just banned towels to protect the beach, in August, almost 5 thousand swimmers spend a day there).
On an international scale, however, the second place is the Baía do Sancho on the island of Fernando de Noronha, the main archipelago of the same name 350 kilometers off the Brazilian northern coast, and the bronze medal at the beach of Varadero, in Cuba , beloved by Italian tourists who make it a fixed stop after visiting Havana.
The Traveler’s Choice awards this year award 355 beaches and have been decreed based on the quality and quantity of reviews and rating given to the beaches by travelers on TripAdvisor in the last 12 months. For Italy remain in the Cala Goloritze classification in Baunei in the province of Nuoro (fourth square), Porto Giunco in Villasimius (fifth), the romantic Bay of Silence that jumps out from the historic center of Sestri Levante (sixth), Cala Mariolu always a Baunei (seventh) and Cala Rossa in Favignana (eighth). New entries in ninth and tenth position are respectively the Maria Pia beach in Alghero and the Marina Piccola beach in Capri.
On Seven Mile Beach facing the Caribbean Sea, Grand Cayman
With as many as six beaches washed by its award-winning waters in the European Ten Ttp of the best coasts, the Mediterranean Sea plays an absolute leading role in the ranking of the old continent. On the other hand, he could only be like that. As far as the mainland is concerned, however, Spain is the star, with three beaches in the top ten of the best in Europe including the absolute winner: La Concha in San Sebastián in front of Elafonissi beach in Crete, Greece, and Falesia Beach, in the Algarve, in the Atlantic south of Portugal. It does not disregard the Fig Tree Bay of Cyprus, in the eastern part of the island not far from the border with the Turkish Republic of the North, while the fifth position goes to Bournemouth Beach, in the United Kingdom. On the other hand, the sixth belongs to the Cleopatra beach in Alanya, in Turkey, in the south of the country and the seventh to the beach of the Rabbits. Another Cretan, Balos Lagoon, the Playa de Ses Illetes in Formentera and the playa de Las Canteras in Gran Canaria.
Returning to the world, the top ten is obviously hostage of the Caribbean resorts like the Eagle Beach of Aruba (fourth), the Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman, the homonymous one in Negril, Jamaica, the Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana, in Dominican Republic. Completing the global ranking playa Norte isla Mujeres in front of Cancún, La Concha in the Basque Country and Clearwater Beach in Clearwater, Florida.
