About
Beaches are land surface structures naturally formed by means of deposition of loose particles such as sand, stones and other hard sediments. The majority of beaches are made of sand which appears when waves move larger pieces around such as rocks, shells, corals, volcanic textures and other materials present in the area. The sand composition defines the beach color. They may be white, yellow, red, grey, black, silver and even golden. This site will take you around the beautiful coastal world of oceans and seas, to the places of all colors and shapes, to the best beaches in the world you always dreamed to see with your own eyes...

Imagine
Close your eyes, you're now feeling a cool breeze, strong and gentle breath of the sea and you hear it's quite close. A soft touch of hot sand makes you squeeze it hard, dip your hand more and you find thousands of grains of sand hidden from the midday sun, each of them so small but unique ... White, yellow, gold - they shimmer in the sun. It's pleasant to your ears, the whispering waves and the occasional cries of birds, maybe seagulls or albatrosses? You inhale the fresh, warm ocean air, it's so relaxing , you only think about the birds flying overhead, the ocean so gently whispering about something, about the sands, which lie around you, about the wind, caressing your hair.

How do you picture your best beach?

No more hassles and urban worries. Is it a dream? Open your eyes, it is not, it's reality, you are on the best beach somewhere in the Universe. Boundless, and cloudless blue sky, borderless warm ocean washes the sandy shore. Each grain of sand on this beach is a piece of white shells that the ocean has been creating for centuries ... Miles of white sand along the shore and no one around. The whole beach is only yours, and gigantic albatrosses, more than four feet in wingspan, soar over the ocean in search of food. The best colors on the planet are around you - blue and white. It is so beautiful on this beach that you want to scream with delight, but you don't, you're smiling and looking at the birds and then run and dive into the waves. The surface water is warm and you dive deeper to catch the cool current. Splashing in the waves you merge with nature and become part of this wondrous, one of the best beaches in the world ...
 
Perhaps the endless virgin beach is not for you and you may want to see it in a small lagoon with azure waters hiding in the rocks or a tiny island, with white, fine as flour sand and dense jungle in the center of the island. Or the best beach for you would have bars and restaurants on the sand with hundreds of kites, hovering under the windy skies. The best beaches of your dreams are there, they are reality, because our planet is so amazingly beautiful!
"The most beautiful beaches might not be visible from space, but our planet itself looks like a fascinating vacation island which has everything you could ever imagine".
