50 Best beaches in the World

All last comments

Maldives, Baa Atoll, Fulhadhoo beach, clear water
Fulhadhoo beach is a beach in the Maldives. This place is unique. Most of the Maldivian islands are expensive luxury hotels, or local islands completely built-up with houses. But this island is relatively large, and the village occupies only a small area. All the rest is completely yours. Several miles of white sand like flour, lush tropical vegetation and a sandy spit with clear water and perfect sunset. Most of time there is no one on the beach - neither locals, nor tourists. And you can get all of this even with a limited budget. / read more » /
