In a recent paean to the natural beauties of our planet, National Geographic has turned the spotlight on Spain. The prestigious travel guide has named a Spanish beach the best beach destination in the world for next summer.

National Geographic focuses on the beaches of the Canary Island of Fuerteventura and more specifically the town of Corralejo. They are located in the north of the island known for its ecological value and alluring landscapes. The vast expanses of golden sand owe their first place on this list to their unparalleled beauty. “A paradise for windsurfers, these beaches are home to treasures such as the Natural Park of the Dunes of Corralejo and the Natural Reserve of Lobos Island, whose underwater world is highly regarded by divers,” says National Geographic. It is this unique combination of natural elements that has put Playa de El Pozo on the world map.

Playa de Corralejo

The beaches of Corralejo are no strangers to the travel world. They are often praised for their fine, almost white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters. Between a sea of dunes and the vast body of water of the Atlantic Ocean, they offer miles of idyllic views and photogenic spots or vistas. For example, from the beach you can see the south of Lanzarote and the small island of Lobos. Perfect for an idyllic and postcard-worthy holiday picture.

Top three best beaches worldwide

In second place, after Fuerteventura, is Sarakiniko Beach on the Greek island of Milos. This beach is famous for its volcanic rock formations eroded by wind and water. It is not without reason that the beach is nicknamed ‘moon beach’. The top three is rounded off with Stiniva Cove on the little-known Croatian island of Vis. This beach has been a protected natural monument since 1967. Access is only provided through a narrow passage after a two-hour boat ride from Split.

Other Spanish entries are at 5 – Playa de Cué in Asturias, at 14 – Playa Macarelleta on the Balearic island of Menorca and at 36 – Playa de las Catedrales in the province of Lugo. Also worth mentioning are La Digue (Seychelles), Tulum (Yucatán), El Nido (Philippines), Cala di Volpe (Sardinia), Palombaggia (Corsica) and Benagil (Portuguese Algarve). With four entries in this top forty, Spain confirms its status as a top destination for beach lovers worldwide.
