Are you dreaming about escaping the freezing winter weather and heading to a tropical beach? Lots of folks are and TripAdvisor is ready to help you start planning. They’ve just announced the winners of their Traveler’s Choice Awards for the Best Beaches for 2023.

  • This year, the honor of the best beach in the U.S. goes to Ka’anapali Beach in Lahaina, Hawaii, which also comes in at number 10 for the world’s best beaches. One reviewer describes it as, “Always beautiful. Beautiful ocean, beach and plenty of walking and snorkeling room.”
  • As for the best beach in the world, that number one spot goes to Baia do Sancho on the volcanic island of Fernando de Noronha, about 200 miles off the coast of Brazil. It’s described as “A beautiful remote beach that can only be reached by descending ladders and stone steps. The majestic bluffs will take your breath away.”
