Kai Kecil - island with the best beaches in Indonesia. White sand, high palm trees and almost no tourists, - it's a best recipe for a tropical paradise.

Almost all of the best beaches are located near the Catholic settlements. / read more » /
Rangiroa is an iconic atoll in French Polynesia. The beaches are beautiful, but not as good like Bora Bora. The problem is that the seabed is not very comfortable due to the broken corals. Rangiroa is good in its low key and laid back feeling - far from the outside world. You'll have a full freedom in all respects. As the atoll is very big, there are a lot of islets without a single person, thus giving great opportunities to find your personal paradise. / read more » /
Kiritimati (Christmas Island) - one of the most unusual atolls in the Pacific Ocean. There is not one, but dozens of inland lagoons, which are quite different from each other.

Exuma Cays is a chain of small islands in the Exuma group, Bahamas. There are some good beaches including the famous beach with swimming pigs.

Vieques - island in Puerto Rico - not far from the Big island. The island has excellent beaches and bioluminescent bay where the water shines at night.

Pentecost is an island in Vanuatu famous for land diving performed by the locals, thus making ancient ritual. Men jump from a height of 20-30 meters, and only natural materials from the jungle are taken for the tower, as well as for ropes. This is a very dangerous tradition, but it was only two deaths known in our times. By the way, all the locals are Christians. Historically, the event was performed only once a year, but now every Saturday. It happened due to the high popularity of the show among the tourists, each paying about US$150. The island has also beaches and other eco attractions, but these are not so interesting. / read more » /
Espiritu Santo is a large island in Vanuatu - with some of the best beaches in the country, including tiny island resorts.
