Scratch your wanderlust itch with a look at this year’s stunning winners in the 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards for Beaches – and it’s Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island in Australia that’s No1.

It takes the top spot in a ranking drawn up from the quality and quantity of reviews and ratings from Tripadvisor travellers for beaches worldwide, as well as volumes of ‘saves’ – beaches locked-down travellers lusted after – gathered between January 1 and December 31, 2020.

The worldwide silver medal goes to Santa Maria Beach on the island of Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba, bronze goes to Baia do Sancho in Brazil and the UK’s Bournemouth Beach snares 20th place on the global ranking and comes fifth on the European list. Saint Pete Beach in Florida is the USA’s top-ranking beach, claiming fifth on the global table.

Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island in Australia is the best beach in the world, according to the 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers' Choice Best of the Best Awards for Beaches. It has a perfect average of five stars from over 2,300 reviews
