Top Ten Beaches to Visit in Asia in 2024.

Asia’s 44.58 million square kilometers of land includes some of the most breathtaking sights on Earth. With the Gobi desert, the Himalayan Mountains, sweeping coastlines, and lush river valleys, there’s a wealth of things to see and enjoy.

For some people, a holiday is a chance to explore somewhere new. But that’s not the case for everyone. If your idea of rest is a beach and a deck chair, Asia is the holiday destination for you, as it boasts the world’s most beautiful beaches.

Here are Voyafly’s top ten beaches to visit in Asia.

10. White Beach, Boracay, Philippines:

Nestled in the heart of the Philippines is the Island Paradise of Boracay. Of all the Island’s beaches, White Beach is particularly divine. Visitors soon fall in love with its powdery white sand (hence the name), azure waters, and breezy palm trees. While the beach’s silky expanse offers a feeling of seclusion, it's close to Boracay’s busy and vibrant center for those seeking retail therapy (or nightlife!)

Radhanagar Beach, Havelock Island, India:

Havelock Island’s Radhanagar Beach is a favorite of visitors to India’s Andaman Islands. As well as silvery sand and swaying palm trees, its sunsets are uniquely beautiful with their amber, orange, and purple light. Such natural visions are not to be missed, so make sure you bring your camera.

Up for adventure? Rai Leh has the Beach for you. Surrounded by limestone cliffs on all sides, you can only get to the Beach by boat. It’s also a world-famous rock climbing site, so if you fancy getting up close to those rugged peaks, give that a try!

 Nacpan Beach, Palawan, Philippines:

Let’s head back to the Philippines and take a look at Nacpan Beach. Situated on Palawan Island in the southwest Philippines, this beach is known for its tranquility and seclusion. In contrast to White Beach, Nacpan’s four kilometers of soft, golden sand meets the clear, lapping waters of the ocean. Plus- there are coconut trees!

Ngapali Beach, Myanmar: 

Ngapali Beach is a jewel in the crown of Myanmar and is widely regarded as “the most beautiful beach” in Southeast Asia. Visitors enjoy the sun, crystal waters, and diving opportunities on offer. You can also sample fresh, local seafood. 

Tanjung Rhu Beach, Langkawi, Malaysia: 

While Malaysia’s Langkawi Archipelago is famous for its picturesque scenery, some say Tanjung Rhu Beach has the most beautiful views of all. Think soft white sand, a gentle breeze, and tranquil waters. 

Kata Beach, Phuket Island, Thailand:

Fancy a swim? Phuket Island's Kata Beach might be the seaside of your dreams. Its clear waters are ideal for swimming and snorkeling, and the beach features facilities for both. It’s also a popular surfing destination, but its soft sands attract beach-goers all year round.

Bentota Beach, Sri Lanka: 

Another ideal destination for water sports fans is Bentota Beach on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. The balmy blue waters are perfect for swimming, jet skiing, and windsurfing- or just dipping your toes in. 

Kelingking Beach, Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia: 

At the end of a hefty hike (down some seriously steep cliffs) Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida is often referred to as Bali’s best-kept secret. This quiet gem offers visitors a rugged coastline, turquoise waters, and distinctive rock formations.

Anse Source d'Argent, La Digue Island, The Seychelles: 

Did we save the best for last? Maybe! 

Technically, The Republic of Seychelles is in Africa. However, we could not miss it off this list due to its unparalleled beauty. The Seychelles is an archipelago of 155 Islands off the East coast of Africa, in the Indian Ocean. These Islands feature exquisite coastlines, rich culture, verdant landscapes, and even Giant Tortoises. 

For many, the beauty of Anse Source d’Argent on La Digue Island is unrivaled. It’s one of the most photographed places in the world. Light-blue waters lap the sandy shore and palm trees and granite boulders provide natural shade from the sun.
