Visiting a beach is a dream for many. A recent survey, sponsored by Tripadvisor revealed 32 per cent of travellers globally will take a beach trip in 2022. If you are one of them, browse through these award-winning beaches, along with guidance from fellow travellers, on the best ways to experience them to make your pick.

“We know a perfect day at the beach looks different from one person to the next. Some love classic soft white sand and sunbathing, while others love exploring rocky coves. This list has something for everyone, because it was determined by the millions of different travellers all over the world reviewing their favourite beaches on Tripadvisor throughout 2021. Although last year was still far from normal, these are the beaches travellers visited
and loved more than any others,” said Christine Maguire, Vice President, Global Media Business at Tripadvisor. “Whether you are looking for a trip where you can continue to social distance outdoors, or are comfortable heading to spring break, beaches are the perfect place to be in 2022, and the Travellers’ Choice Awards can guide you to the best ones for you,” Maguire added.

The number one beach in the world determined by travellers this year is Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos. With over 7,200 reviews to-date (90 per cent of which are 5-bubble), this quintessential Caribbean paradise has travellers raving about its white sand and crystal clear water.

This year, India still retains the crown of being home to Asia’s most loved beach, but travellers have crowned a brand new winner for 2022: Radhanagar Beach in Havelock Island. It is ranked as the sixth best beach in the world! This year, India also had the most winners on the ‘best beaches in Asia’ list, including Cavelossim Beach (#4), Agonda Beach (#5), Varca Beach (#8) and Benaulim Beach (#10).

Tripadvisor, claiming to be the world’s largest travel platform, announced the second edition of its annual ‘Travellers’ Choice® Awards for 2022’ in the second fortnight of February.
