Pristine white sandy beaches, rugged coastlines, black sand, pink sand, pebble beaches - we've seen the lot, so if you're unsure about where to go on holiday but you know you want the sandy stuff to feature, we're here to help.

The beach: soft sand between your toes, warm sun kissing your skin, the sound of waves gently rolling onto the shore and the smell of salt in the air… essentially the travel dictionary definition of heaven.
Cultural immersion and historical exploration are all well and good but sometimes it's the old fashioned R&R that really does the trick. And if you are going to head coast-wards, we know all the very best luxury beach hotels to complete the experience.
For some in-depth knowledge on the properties (or just an ogle at some beautiful beach-side abodes), take a look at our top ten beach hotels blog.
