The world’s best beaches, according to The Telegraph

SurferThe Telegraph has put together a slideshow of the world’s most perfect beaches. Whether you’re seeking pounding surf, turquoise oceans or pristine sand, I find it hard to believe that  Fistral Beach qualifies as one of the best ten in the world – rather,  it’s probably just there to satisfy the newspaper’s UK readership. Here’s  The Telegraph’s  verdict on the best that the world’s coastline has to offer:
  1. Cocoa Island, The Maldives
  2. Fistral Beach, Cornwall
  3. Kommetjie, South Africa  
  4. Grand Anse, Grenada
  5. Lizard Island, Australia  
  6. Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  7. Pipeline, Hawaii  
  8. Ocracoke Lifeguarded Beach, Outer Banks, North Carolina  
  9. Tulum, Mexico  
  10. Messanges, south-west France
