Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

CNN map of the world's greatest beaches

Post by phuketrichard » Sat Jan 06, 2018 5:50 pm

Great interactive map;

nice to have this list on ur Bucket list of places to go... :beer3:
What if, instead of lolling about on the same strip of sand, we jumped to another. And when that gets old, we head on to the next -- from beautiful beach to beautiful beach, right around the world.

So that’s what we’re doing here. CNN is spending a year at the beach, and we’re taking you with us. Each week for the next 12 months, we’re going to be enjoying a different stretch of the world’s best shorelines.

What! They left Sinville off and put long beach Phu quoc on. haha best of luck. long beach was only a metre or 2 wide when I was there. its one of those beaches which is huge in one season and disappears in another as the tide moves sand around :-)

Neither of the 2 beaches they mentioned in SA have shark nets

Maybe swimming isn't a priority

I have a feeling the guy who made this list has never been to the beaches. Some of the best beaches in the world if you like surf on the Fench atlantic coast. Deserted, 10ft waves and not one listed.

as we have no idea what the criteria is , cant really say they were off the mark.

true, but there is no way Dungeness can be a 'great beach' the only thing ist famous for is the nuclear power station. its flat, windy and altogether horrible unless maybe you are a bird watcher.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
