Summer is all about hitting the beach, relaxing under the sun, soaking up some color, frolicking and swimming in clear blue waters, building up sand castles and indulging in water sports like surfing, snorkeling or diving. Here is the list of 10 Scenic Beaches in the world to escape to this summer.
1. Whitehaven, Queensland, Australia
Stretching over 7 kms along the Whitsunday Island, Whitehaven is one of the scenic beaches to set your foot on. A flawless spot to have a tête-à-tête with sun, sand, and nature.

Said to be one of the most “Photographed Beaches in the World”, Anse Source d’Argent is starkly alluring with warm turquoise water and immaculate white sands backed by granite rocks and tall palm trees.
3. Matira Beach, Bora Bora, French Polynesia
