Ranking based on unique criteria & influencer voting

According to BeachAtlas, six criteria were taken into consideration when shortlisting the world’s “best beaches”. These are:

  1. Classic beauty – visual aspects
  2. DEI – inclusion and comfortability of visitors
  3. Natural diversity – flora and fauna
  4. Party and lifestyle – nightlife and ambience
  5. Community – impact on local culture and lifestyle
  6. Cultural significance – historical importance

After the top 100 beaches were shortlisted based on the criteria, 42 travel experts and influencers ranked the destinations, casting their votes based on personal experiences.

BeachAtlas CEO and co-founder Davor Pavic said the perspectives allowed them to “shine a light on beach gems that typically don’t make it onto traditional, unidimensional ‘best beach’ lists”.

After a detailed curation process, BeachAtlas shared the beach rankings with the world.

Taking the crown was French Polynesia’s Bora Bora with its “crystal-clear waters by day and snap postcard-perfect sunsets by night”.

Located in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, the beach was labelled the “ultimate paradise”.

Coming in at 91st on the list is Singapore’s very own Siloso Beach, located on Sentosa Island.


Described as “a cornerstone of community life”, Siloso Beach is one of Singapore’s top spots with something for the whole family.

Juxtaposed to the country’s bustling city life, the entirely man-made destination offers a wide range of activities such as beach sports and indoor skydiving.
