Most Beautiful Beach

I was just wondering where you think is the most beautiful beach in the Caribbean/Mexico? My idea of a beautiful beach is white sand and turqois waters.....What's your number one beach??

I've just been to Providenciales in Turks & Caicos, and I think Grace Bay is about as perfect a beach as you can find anywhere. That said, I wouldn't go back! The island is not pretty and there's nothing to do there. So, the next most bautiful beach, and one I will return to again and again . . . .
I can't tell, because then everyone will go there, and it won't be beautiful any more.

Grace Bay, T&C is my absolute favorite of all the places we've been. White sand/turquoise water. Lovely!

The most beautiful beach is the one that I'm stretched out on at the moment...

While I agree with TioGringo, and lord knows I am a Jamaica/Negril/Seven Mile Beach nut, THE most beautiful beach has to be Trunk Bay at St. John. Lovely pinkish coral sand and that blue/clear water you describe.

But the peoples are friendlier in Jamaica.

I have to agree with Grace Bay on Provo. Absolutely beautiful. I would also suggest Grande Anse Beach on Grenada. I am unsure which I would place first. A third suggestion would be Cane Garden Bay or Smugglers Cove on Tortola.

It discusses the best beaches, with the most wonderful white sand and turquoise water.

I'll add to the nominees ... Horseshoe Bay in Bermuda. A beautiful, large cove-like beach with pink-toned sand as soft as baby powder and tourquiose blue water. Large rock formations on the sides that create several small "mini-coves" surrounded by lush foliage.

I also agree with Shoal Bay...the perfect match of talcum powder white sand and crystal clear turquoise water so warm you can just jump in.

Another favorite is The Baths on Virgin Gorda, BVI. There is something very spiritual about the huge bolder formations and tidal pools. The beach has beautiful clear turquoise green water and soft sand. The beach itself is not rocky, but has bolders scattered about. The added green lushness dotted with colorful flowers adds a unique contrast to the beautiful boulder formations and peaks of this beautiful island. Just add a "Painkiller"

Everytime I get my photos from Cancun visits developed or on the computer, the water is the most AMAZING color turquiose. It looks fake and I don't notice it in person so much, but in those picture ! So beautiful...

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Seven Mile Beach (or Colliers Bay!) in Grand Cayman !
