This beach is Europe’s tallest dune at over 100 metres. It’s an hour’s drive from Bordeaux and is literally dazzling. you’ll shield your eyes the maximum amount from the shimmering heat haze because the pristine sand. After you’ve taken within the panoramic views over the Atlantic and pine forests behind, there are miles of beaches to explore along the Bassin d’Arcachon. Take a ferry from Arcachon pier to Cap Ferret for the simplest view of the dune. To eat, head to the oyster cabanes, where fishermen found out tables and serve oysters, prawns, paté, bread and blush wine .

Icing-sugar sand, 3km of it, crystal-clear Caribbean water, off-shore reef with spectacular snorkelling or diving, a smattering of bars and open-air restaurants … job done! This stretch on the east of the fun yachtie island, near Dickenson Bay town, is quieter than nearby Jabberwock beach.
• Dutchman’s Bay Cottages (doubles from $140) has seven options with verandas right by this eponymous beach

4 Cala Saona, Formentera

There is no shortage of lovely beaches on the littlest of the Balearics but everybody seems to require to cram on to Illetes and Espalmador. far better to rent a motorcycle or moped within the main port, La Savina, and head a couple of kilometres across the island to Cala Saona. it’s perfectly clear water, white sand and dramatic red cliffs on each side . It faces west, so is that the ideal spot for a sundowner at, say, the charmingly simple Cala Saona chiringuito.
• Ferries to Formentera (30 minutes) run frequently from Ibiza Town for about €50 return. For a treat, occupy the cool, modern Cala Saona Hotel (summer doubles from €280 B&B)

A beach made up of years of dumped litter seems like a hellhole but, at Glass beach, on the Mendocino coast in California, the result’s quite beautiful. From 1906 to 1967, glass, appliances and even vehicles were chucked into the ocean . A clean-up programme removed all the metal and non-biodegradable waste, and therefore the waves broke down the glass and pottery, which washed up as jewel-like, translucent stones. Nowadays, the beach is a component of MacKerricher state park, and visitors are forbidden for removing the sea-glass baubles.
• Beachcomber Motel and Spa has doubles from $119 B&B

Panama has three archipelagos: San Blas is expensive to urge to, the Pearl Islands are pricey to remain on, but Bocas del Toro, just south of Costa Rica on the Caribbean side, puts virgin beach utopia within a backpacker budget. From the funky town hub of Bocas on Isla Colón, boat taxis cross between the ten inhabited islands and a few 300 islands and islets, although this protected beach, gloriously decorated with a liberal smattering of starfish, is on Colón itself.
• Palmar Tent Lodge (tent dorm bed $13.50, doubles from $50, palmartentlodge.com)
