    In terms of clear water, soft sand, and little ocean debris. Anywhere in the world. Just trying to compile a list. The beach at an oceanfront resort is more important to me than most everything else...well maybe except the bathroom :P

          This was less than a year after the earthquake/tsunami.... The locals told us how the tsunami had totally stole half of the islands vegetation... However we thought it was beautiful.

          We liked it because it was NEVER EVER crowded. I think I paid 400 for about 4 days.

            Wow! That is beautiful. I can tell from the pics that the sand was soft and the water is gorgeous. Love the bungalow and FI in the "relaxed" pose...haha Thanks for sharing, that was cool!! Thailand is definitely on my someday list!

                some of the best sand is in the DR. i loved that sand. it is very finely ground white corral so it stays cool in the hot sun and soft on your feet. but i thought the beaches were nicer in the MR (the sand there is a little coarser but the water was clearer making for a lot nicer snorkling. the waters in hawaii though are such a gorgeous royal blue. i loved the colors but made for a little merkier snorkling and the water is super salty there for some reason.

                  Alyssa that place is stunning!!! I bet the buyout was ridiculous for a spot like that! Do you have any pics to share? Just gorgeous!

                  I fell in love with the beach at Mamee Bay/Ocho Rios. Water temp and color is perfect, we spent days just bobbing around in the sea. DH took these pictures:

                  Jean-marcus is MR Mayan Riviera? Lanikai in Hawaii is one of my favorite beaches ever, warm, clear water with powdered sugar soft sand. I have pics but that was before I had a digital cam and I never scanned them onto disc. Here is a picture of Lanikai I ripped from the internet:

                    I loved the beaches in Negril, Jamaica. Also the beaches in the Philippines (Boracay and especially Palawan) are pretty spectacular too. The colored beaches in Greece are beautiful, but rocky.

                    I love beaches that are clean, un-comercialized, quiet w/ powder soft sand. But there are times when I'm in the mood for a beach party...has anybody been to Paradise Beach in Mykonos, Greece...it's pretty nuts!!!

                      One of my bf's is from the Philippines and I've seen pictures of the beach at her old house and you're so right...gorgeous!
