Where should we travel to see amazing sea and beaches?

How far will you travel? For some distant good beach areas you should schedule much more than a weekend jaunt.

From where? If a distant location in a foreign country you will need a passport. Overseas travel require plane tickets too unless you will be using a cruise ship. If traveling long distance "amazing sea and beaches" may depend on month you visit. (Some months better than others for weather conditions.) Some beach areas may have a "high season" for hotel prices too.

Sample Google search:

Come back with some more information. Are you kids on a school break? There may be some beach areas more popular with younger tourists than older retirees too.

From Traveloweb's other post in which they tried to drop their weblink, they're a website designer doing sites for tour operators in Asia - you'd think they'd know all the good beaches from their clients' content.

I suggest Skegness.

It never ceases to amaze what lengths people take to promote things. Someone recently used a photo of a convicted child murderer as their profile photo to promote a guide service. Stupido!

I thought the question was asking what are our favourite beaches I really misread that.

I thought it was a legitimate "first time" poster without any clue on where to go. I didn't see any self promotion or outright sales pitch.

I suggest Skegness.

Another vote here for Skegness. A gentle breeze blowing in off the North Sea while you walk along the prom with your candy floss - you can't beat Skeggy! What was that iconic British Rail poster - "Skegness - is SO bracing"!

It is hard to pick a favourite beach as there is so many good ones in Australia. I did love Cable Beach and Whitsunday is famous for a reason as is Byron Bay Beach. Jervais Bay has some gorgeous beaches and Stockton Beach is great, I mean who doesn't love a good sandune? Garie Beach I reckon is the best in Sydney and apparently the author of 101 Best Beaches agrees

Internationally the most memorable beaches for me have to be Portugal on the Algarve coast, those rock formations are spectacular, west coast Jutland in Denmark has some amazing beaches even if the water is cold:) Sticking with cold beaches there was a black sand beach in Iceland that stretched all the way to the horizon, and with the dark clouds and crashing waves it was a stunning sight. Papohaku Beach in Molokai I thought was pretty gorgeous and speaking of Hawaii I did see Red Sand Beach in Maui while perhaps not the greatest beach in the world the extraordinary colours certainly makes it worth a visit in my opinion. Also Pensacola Beach in Florida, it is one of those beaches you always see on those lists of best beaches in the world and I have to admit I think it deserves the hype, the white sand, blue waters it was really beautiful. Even driving there is a cool experience. It is like driving through a desert but all the sand is blazing white

Actually I was being tongue-in-cheek. I really don't get why millions trail to a windswept boring bit of coast, for their every holiday, when there's an interesting world out there. :-)
