Finest Beach Location in Asia

Macleod Island, Myanmar

Located in the Mergui Archipelago off Myanmar’s coast, Macleod Island remains mostly untouched, meaning it is serene and full of simple beauty. Macleod Island is ideal for those seeking tranquillity in a natural paradise. The isolated island is home to pristine beaches, incredible diving spots and unspoiled nature.

Koh Rong, Cambodia

Little development, unspoiled nature, rustic accommodation and a number of stunning white-sand beaches make up one of Asia’s most divine islands - Koh Rong. It is located an hour away from Sihanoukville in Cambodia. There are no roads on the island, and lighting is limited at night. Under starlit skies, it becomes possible to spot bioluminescent plankton in the sea. Stunning corals and exotic fish also surround the beautiful island.

Cát Bà Island, Vietnam

Located in northern Vietnam, the stunning Cát Bà National Park is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site - Ha Long Bay. Cát Bà Island is the largest island in the park, and the town itself is rather touristy, with many karaoke cafes attracting Vietnamese weekenders. But take a little ride out of town, and find the many golden beaches, boat ride options, dense jungles and lush green mountains, offering plenty of treks with incredible views of the famous karst scenery of Cát Bà National Park.

Amazing Beach Destinations in Europe

Fårö Island, Sweden

Fårö Island is a popular summer destination for Swedes—and we can easily see why. Reached by ferry from Gotland's northernmost point, the island is another world—think of it as untamed Tasmania to Gotland's Australia. Even in a country with unique landscapes at every turn, Fårö stands out: The entire island is made of limestone and is eerily picturesque with its many rock formations.

Navagio Beach, Zakynthos, Greece

Also known as Shipwreck Beach due to the ancient freighter buried at its center, Navagio is easily the most beautiful stretch of sand in Greece. It’s sheltered by sheer limestone cliffs and is so isolated that you can only access it by boat. While you could easily spend all day sunning on its powdery sands, its beauty is best appreciated from the viewing platform in the cliffs above—just follow the signs to the Agios Gergio Kremnao monastery.

Rügen Island, Germany

Once the playground of East Germany’s elite, Rügen is one of the country's most beloved islands—and a stark reminder of the country's history. The island (Germany's largest) has 357 miles of coastline made up of white sand beaches and dramatic chalk cliffs, but if you need to narrow it down, head to the iconic Sellin Pier (Seebrücke) on the island's southeastern quadrant. The pier, restaurant, and surrounding beach are well-worth devoting an afternoon to.

Everything You Need To Know About Sand

  • Definition

    Sand is defined as a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.

    Silica

    The most common type of sand, found in non-tropical coasts and continental areas, is called silica. It usually takes the form of quartz. This type of sand is extremely resistant to weathering due to its chemical composition (SiO2), which makes the grain very hard.

    Composition

    The exact composition of sand can vary greatly depending on local mineral sources and geological conditions. White sand, such as that found on many beaches around the world is composed mainly of eroded limestone.

  • Arkose

    Arkose is a form of sand high in feldspar and granite. Other minerals known to be found in sand include glauconite, gypsum, and magnetite. Magnetite, as well as the volcanic obsidian, produces a very course black sand.

    Green Sand

    Green sands can be seen wherever there is a mix of basalt, chlorite and glauconite. Many areas in Southern Europe have a deep yellow color due to concentrations of quartz and iron.
