From the northernmost reaches of Norway to the tropical oases of the Caribbean and the South Pacific, the world is graced with stunningly beautiful beaches. Powder white beaches amid swaying palm trees and turquoise waters might represent the holiday ideal for some.

Others might crave more adventure: perhaps a windswept and craggy coastline with towering volcanoes or snow-capped mountain peaks looming over the shore. Whatever your tastes, there’s sure to be a beach or two you love in a new list assembled by travel site FlightNetwork.
