Best Beach Awards 2013: Best Overall
Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman: “Seven Mile Beach aka West Bay Beach has been called one of the finest beaches in the Caribbean. This wonderful white-sand beach stretches from George Town to Long Point.”
Miami Beach, Florida: “Miami has something for everyone: A plethora of shopping at Lincoln Road Mall, legendary nightlife along Ocean Drive and crystal clear waters unparalleled on the east coast.”
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: “The Dominican Republic is also an outdoor adventurer’s paradise, home to white-water rafting on the Yaque del Norte River, paragliding from Alto del Guayabo mountain and horseback riding along Punta Cana’s white-sand beaches.”
Matira Beach, Bora Bora, Tahiti: “Bora Bora is one of the magical islands that make up French Polynesia in the South Pacific. Just 18 miles long, this lush little slipper of land lies in a protected lagoon edged by fine white sandy shores — the best located at Matira Point.”
