But if you are a beach bum looking for the best time of year to visit or how to get there, you can learn about that and more in our top 10 beaches in Asia to visit guide.
There are so many beautiful beaches to visit and experience in Asia. It is really hard to narrow it down to just ten. However, we did manage to pick the best, both for their stunning beach locations as well as their unique characteristics. To make this ranking more interesting, we have combined things like romantic settings and cultural highlights.
These are the 10 best beaches to visit in Asia:
- Boracay Island, Philippines
When you wake up on a soft, sandy, tropical island, you could be forgiven for thinking you had died and gone to heaven. However, when you realize that Boracay Island is located in the Philippines, you may want to believe that both theories are true. The island is a Filipino paradise famous for its white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, and laid-back tropical lifestyle.
- Siquijor Island, Philippines
Siquijor is an island province in the Philippines and is located in the Central Visayas region. This province is one of the country’s famed tourist spots with a little less tourist compared to its neighboring Islands. It is home to some of the country’s well-known diving sites and some of the most scenic beaches. It is also known for its supernatural myths and traditions and for its famous MassKara Festival, which happens every year in October.
- The Maldives
If you are looking for paradise, then look no further than the Maldives. An island nation of nearly 1,200 islands in the Indian Ocean, this chain of islands stretches across nearly 90,000 square miles of pure tropical bliss. It is a favorite vacation destination for celebrities.
There are so many islands in the Maldives that the actual number is hard to calculate. However, many of the islands are uninhabited, and even those that are inhabited tend to be pretty small. The largest island is the capital island of Male, but even that is only about five square miles big. As a result, the best way to explore the islands is by boat.
- The Gili Islands, Indonesia
The Gili Islands off the coast of Lombok, Indonesia, have long been a popular destination for backpackers looking to escape the crowds and party on a pristine beach. However, changes on the islands are loosening their hold on a specific type of traveler: families. Many have begun to complain that the once-peaceful Gili is being overtaken by tattoos and hostels geared toward a younger crowd.
- Pattaya, Thailand
It is a city in Thailand, located in the southeast of the country. It is a popular destination for tourists, especially Europeans, due to its almost two-kilometer-long beach, the temperature of which is always 25 degrees Celsius, and its relatively inexpensive price, compared to other beaches in Thailand. There are many hotels, hostels and bungalows and the city center are quite close to the beach. The nightlife is also active.
- Melaka/Malacca, Malaysia
The beaches of Melaka/Malacca are located in the State of Melaka/Malacca in Malaysia. They are known for their clear waters and white sand. This city beach is among the most popular attractions in the city and is a destination for both local tourists and international visitors. Known as the Venice of Asia, this is a popular destination for water sports, and many tourists come to the city to try windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling.
- Langkawi, Malaysia
Lying off the west coast of peninsular Malaysia, the islands of Langkawi are an ideal destination for those seeking natural beauty without the crowds. With a subtropical climate and with long stretches of golden sand, Langkawi is a popular beach destination. But its greatest appeal lies in its diverse wildlife and landscape.
- Phuket, Thailand
Asia’s biggest island is famous for its white sandy beaches, turquoise water, and scenic limestone cliffs.
- Nyang Nyang Beach, Bali
It is no secret that Bali is a popular destination for tourists. Everyone knows about Kuta, Ubud, and the Gili Islands. But there is also another attraction that is much less well-known, Nyang Nyang Beach. This is a new age hippie beach in the south of the island that is a popular spot with backpackers.
- Miyako Island, Japan
The southernmost Japanese island of Miyako-Jima, just over 200 miles from the coast of Taiwan, may be a long way from the mainland, but it is still a part of Japan. It is also one of the country’s most remote islands, as well as one of the easiest to get to daily ferries run between Miyako-Jima and the city of Kagoshima on the southern tip of the Japanese main island of Kyushu. Kagoshima is Japan’s most populous city outside of Tokyo. It is a major tourist destination, but it also makes an excellent base for exploring the rest of the prefecture and the Miyako Islands.
