Not a typical Caribbean beach!

Azure waters, the softest sand ever, cliffs and green forests. Altogether, it makes Whitehaven really special, although Australia has many wonderful beaches.
#3 – Shell Beach, Isle of Purbeck, Dorset
UK is in the rating!
This is a UK style beach so you should not expect any tropical attributes here. The nature is different and therefore magnifying.
