TripAdvisor selected Best Beaches around the world

  • Published by Vedat

TripAdvisor announced the winners of this year’s 181 top beach locations around the world, covering 21 regions including Australia, South Pacific and Asia.

tripadvisorAward winners were determined based on the most highly rated beach destinations by travellers in TripAdvisor reviews. Unlike any other honours, TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travellers around the world.

Burleigh Heads in Queensland, known for its surf break, took the first place within Australia and was ranked the fourth best beach destination in the South Pacific, with Byron Bay in second place followed by Coolangatta in third. In all, Queensland lays claim to 6 of the top 10, with New South Wales and Western Australia taking two winning destinations apiece.

Bora Bora in French Polynesia, abundant with luxurious resorts and spas, made it to the top spot within the South Pacific. Finally, palm-filled Boracay in the Philippines laid claim to the best beach destination in the whole of Asia.

“Queensland has the best beaches? Well of course we do,” said Tourism Queensland CEO Anthony Hayes. “The fact Burleigh Heads and five other Queensland beaches have made the list is fantastic news for Queensland and our tourism industry. This outcome is a result of millions of positive reviews and opinions from travellers around the globe via TripAdvisor®.”

“It also supports what we already know – that visitors to Queensland love our islands and beaches plus other experiences such as our laidback lifestyle and nature as well as adventure-based experiences,” Anthony added.

“These beach destinations provide inspiration for travellers who are looking for a quick weekend getaway nearby or who are planning that perfect tropical retreat in a different country, as identified by TripAdvisor’s community of travellers,” said Jean Ow-Yeong, TripAdvisor spokesperson.
