The World’s 50 Best Beaches List


FlightNetwork recently launched their first annual World’s 50 Best Beaches List, chosen by the industry’s leading travel professionals.  [Just a small diversion for those watching the snow falling outside our windows (possibly, in between correcting papers) and for my fantastic students in the “Women of the Caribbean” course (some of whom are still writing their final papers)!] Caribbean beaches include Playa Paraíso and Hidden Beach (Mexico), Grace Bay (Turks and Caicos), Pinks Sands [shown above] and Pig Beach (The Bahamas), Trunk Bay (St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands), Saltwhistle Bay (St. Vincent and the Grenadines), Half Moon Bay (Antigua), Flamenco Beach (Culebra Island, Puerto Rico), Cayo Coco (Cuba), Seven Mile Beach (Cayman Islands), Horseshoe Bay (Bermuda), Grande Anse (Grenada), Los Roques (Venezuela), Shoal Beach (Anguilla), and Eagle Beach (Aruba).
