World Cities with the Best Beaches

We live on a truly beautiful planet, and there are so many incredible beaches to visit. There are few feelings quite like walking barefoot on soft, golden sand and plunging into the azure waters of the sea. Here’s where you’ll find some of the best beaches around the world…


Ibiza, Spain


There’s so much more to Ibiza than the pulsating nightlife that it is famous for. Head away from the young revellers and discover some of the prettiest and most unspoilt beaches you’ll find in the Mediterranean.

Sandy beaches, hidden bays, sheltered coves and crystal clear waters are dotted all around the 210 kilometres of coastline that the island is blessed with.


Los Angeles, USA


If you’re looking for gorgeous, sun-kissed beaches, then Los Angeles will leave you spoiled for choice.

There are the well-known beaches, such as Santa Monica and Venice beach, but there are also plenty of hidden beaches that are quieter and more peaceful.

Los Angeles is also great for those interested in water sports. Surfers come from far and wide to ride the Californian waves, and every year, dozens of surfing competitions are hosted along the coast.


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Brazil’s second largest city, Rio de Janeiro, is world famous for its miles of glorious sandy beaches

There’s the popular and unforgettable Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, as well as lesser-known stretches of sand, such as Prainha Beach and Barra da Tijuca – Rio’s longest beach at a massive 11 miles long.


Barcelona, Spain


When you think of a beach destination Barcelona probably doesn’t immediately spring to mind. It is a sprawling city of more than one and a half million people, yet Barceloneta beach is only ten minutes from the city centre.

It is an entirely man-made beach, and the sand stretches for more than four kilometres. It is perfect for those who enjoy relaxing beach breaks, but who also like to be close to the buzz of a city centre.


Perth, Australia


Australia has some of the most idyllic and picture-perfect coastlines in the world. The area around Perth, on the west coast of the country, is punctuated with beaches, seemingly at every turn. You’ll find miles upon miles of golden sand with turquoise waters, making it the perfect destination to go and really get away from it all.


Koh Samui, Thailand


Koh Samui is an island located off the east coast of Thailand and has a population of around 60,000 people.

The island has numerous white sandy beaches, perfectly clear water, and coconut trees aplenty. The beaches here are slowly becoming more and more commercial, so get to Koh Samui soon before the authenticity is lost forever.


All of the the fabulous beaches included here are within some of the most popular private jet charter destinations that we charter to. Contact us today for a personalised quote for your travel needs.
