The amazing scenery of Rhossili Bay in the Gower, featuring white sand and blue, clean waters has once again made it in the list of the World's Top 10 Best Beaches.

According to the TripAdvisor top 10 list, in fact, the inspiring Welsh beach places itself at number 9 this year.

James Kay, TripAdvisor spokesperson commented: “These awards recognise the best beaches in the UK and worldwide, according to the travellers that have visited and given them the highest levels of praise".

Rhossili Bay triumphed against a lot of other seaside destinations in Mexico, Brazil and Australia, also European beaches in Spain, Greece, Italy and Turkey – indeed, it's been named third best beach in Europe for the second year in a row.

Of course, Rhossili Bay also retains its title as the UK's number 1 best beach. Second best beach in the UK is Woolacombe Beach in Devon, while Cornwall's Porthminster Beach took the third place.

"To have three British beaches named among the best in Europe just goes to show how lucky we are in the UK to have such stunning scenery right on our doorstep" added Mr Kay.

But the most voted beach by travellers and tourist worldwide is the truly spectacular Baia do Sancho in Brazil. Vibrant crystalline water and pristine white sand, towering cliffs and lush vegetation, Baia do Sancho is the ultimate exotic dream sea-side escape.

At number 2 comes Grace Bay on the tropical island of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos. With its powder-soft, white and green water slowly fading to turquoise then purple in the horizon, Grace Bay is a stunning location, quickly followed at number 3 by Flamenco Beach in Puerto Rico.
