Travelers' Choice of Top 10 Beach Destinations in the World!

Looking for a beach destination for your honeymoon? Find below the top 10 beach destinations for 2012 according to Travelers' Choice:

#1 Providenciales:
 
 
"What makes this little Caribbean island the Travelers' Choice top beach destination for the second year in a row? Families love it for its uncrowded beaches at Taylor Bay and Grace Bay. And newlyweds find it a perfectly romantic place for a honeymoon."
 
#2 Palm/Eagle Beach, Aruba:
 
 
"Inhabited since the year 1000, Aruba is an island rich in history and culture. Eagle Beach is an idyllic Caribbean beach, with white sands and turquoise waters, and is frequented by water sports enthusiasts. Palm Beach, on the island's west side, offers perfect swimming conditions and powdery sand."
 
#3 Tulum, Mexico:
 
 
"Tulum is relaxation and romance with an ancient angle. Guests can enjoy modern takes on traditional Mayan massage and spa treatments, or sunbathe on gorgeous Yucatan beaches within site of well-preserved ancient ruins. A rare mix of beach, archeology and village, Tulum is a romantic getaway like no other."
 
#4 Negril, Jamaica:
 
 
"Sure, you can leave the sunny sands in favor of a crocodile watch or horseback ride, but when the main strand is called Seven Mile Beach, it's clear what draws most visitors to Negril. Depending on how much sun you want, you're welcome to go topless or even sunbathe in the buff in some places."
 
#5 Saint Pete Beach, Florida:
 
 
"Sugary-white sand, dolphins frolicking just off shore and eight major barrier islands make St. Pete Beach a postcard-perfect seaside destination. Situated on a peninsula off Florida's west coast, it is an ideal place to experience the state's wild beauty and the magical golden rays of the Sunshine State."
 
#6 Boracay, Philippines: 
 
 
"At only 4.5 miles long, Boracay is small enough to navigate by rented bicycle or motorbike. But don't let its small size fool you—you'll have several excellent beaches to choose from."
 
#7 Cancun, Mexico:
 
 
"It’s not just for spring-breakers. Cancun, with its golden beaches and perfect climate, is the premiere coastal destination in Mexico."
 
#8 Punta Cana, Dominican Republic:
 
 
"This is what Caribbean postcards are made of: 25 miles of white sand, swaying coconut trees and crystal-clear water. An affordable tropical getaway, Punta Cana is known for its many all-inclusive resorts."
 
#9 Miami Beach, Florida:
 
 
"At the shore in Miami Beach, visitors can swim, surf and jet ski in the warm and crystal-clear Atlantic waters."
 
#10 Varadero, Cuba:
 
 
"Cuba's top beach destination sits on a 13-mile-long peninsula with powder soft sands lapped by waters of the Kawama Channel."
