Grand Cayman Island boasts the famous Seven Mile Beach, a crescent-shaped stretch of coral sand that offers sunbathing, snorkeling and swimming. Many of the world's best beaches are on the Hawaiian island, Kauai, such as the white crescent Poipu Beach and the picturesque Lumahai Beach. The latter is the quintessential Hawaiian beach, gracing the front of many a postcard. Although it makes a great place to relax and sun, it's not recommended for swimming because of the high number of drowning deaths. For swimming, opt for Poipu Beach.

Palm trees, white sand and large boulders dot the Anse Source d'Argent, a beach located on Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. Visitors who want to lounge on the scenic, turquoise-watered beach need to pay a small fee to the L'Union Estate plantation that owns it. Another group of islands located in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives, offers beaches with close proximity to 3,000 coral reefs for scuba diving and snorkeling.
