Beaches

Aqaba - Where the Red Sea meets the desert - Jordan

At sunset, Aqaba comes alive with the scent of spices and the inviting hum of the night market. Visitors are drawn here by the clear waters of the Red Sea and the proximity to world-class attractions such as Petra and Wadi Rum.

Étretat – The White Elephant Rock in Normandy – France

The cliffs of the Alabaster Coast invite you to views beyond the ordinary. It is a little extra beautiful in Étretat.

On the north coast of Gozo lies a tiny little beach in a meandering bay. Wied il-Ghasri. Perhaps one of the world's most beautiful beaches.

Reynisfjara - The dangerous black beach - Iceland

One of the world's most beautiful beaches according to National Geographic, but definitely not a beach where you want to dip your toes. The black lava beach of Reynisfjara in Iceland offers not only scenic drama, but also really scary waves.

Shark Bay - Coral Coast Marine Wonder - Australia
