Best Beaches in Asia Pacific - Die besten Strände in Asien und Ozeanien

Travel Bloggers present the Best Beaches in Asia Pacific

A summary of the “My favourite beach in Asia Pacific” round-up on allacrossasia

The German langauge knows a term called “Fernweh“. This word describes the longing for places far away, the desire to break out of the daily routine and travel to new destinations. Especially in the European winter time, when days are short and cold, people like to dream themselves away to exotic places where it’s warm and life’s easy. The image of dream beaches where one can relax and let go of all the stress and everyday worries becomes very desirable. But where can one find these beaches? Where are the best places which fulfil these desires? To find answers to these questions and provide you with some inspiration for your next vacation, I asked fellow international travel bloggers with focus on the Asia Pacific region about their favourite beaches.

Overwhelmingly, I have received contributions from 17 different travel experts who presented 21 of their favourite beaches in totally 14 countries in the eastern hemisphere. Therefore, I needed to split the post which I had planned on “Favourite Beaches in Asia Pacific” into three parts. Here, you can find the overview of the covered beaches and the links to the respective articles:

Tell me about your favourite beaches!

Although this is a pretty comprehensive list from my point of view, it is certainly quite subjective and cannot be complete. “Where is Bali?”, one may ask. Or another one might complain that the Maldives are missing. Or Fiji, or whatnot. Perhaps I will add a fourth part later on, covering beaches that you think are still missing. So please let me know which beaches I have left out that you think are among the best ones in the Asia Pacific region!

However, I also hope that you had lots of fun reading these three articles and got a lot of beautiful impressions of turquoise waters and snow-white sandy beaches that helped to fuel your Fernweh.

Keep travelling and remember: Life is a beach!

  1. This is such a great list! Awesome idea. Will have to keep this handy. Here in Australia we have some very beautiful beaches in Jervis Bay. But I am a little sad that Maldives didn’t make the list! My favourite beach in Maldives is Thoddoo Island or Dhigurah!

  2. Thanks so much for featuring me here for the best beaches in Asia! I have to agree with Sebastian from Japsolut on Tour because I’ve been to Ishigaki and I absolutely loved it. It’s an outer island of the Okinawa mainland and breathtakingly gorgeous. I hope your readers get inspired to see these beaches!

  3. There are beach goals. Some of my favorite beaches made it to the list especially Boracay’s White Beach. But it’ll be nice to visit other beaches listed here. I’m sure I’ll be wowed. Good job for the compilation.

  4. Such an amazing list that you have created here. And a special thanks for including our experience into the list. We are yet to explore the other beaches apart from India’s. And 2018 is the year we are hoping we will get to do that. Definitely inspired by the mentions on this list.
