World's number 1 beach is in the Algarve

Published on

Tripadvisor has unveiled the winners of its 2024 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best Awards for Beaches. 

The top beach in the world is  Praia da Falesia in the Algarve, according to the travel site, as it was awarded the top slot in its 2024 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best Awards for Beaches. It knocks six-time title holder Baia do Sancho in Brazil off the top spot.

'The Travellers' Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel,’ Tripadvisor explains, adding that it is awarded to ‘those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.’

Praia da Falesia, which came in sixth last year, has received 5,900 reviews to date – 68% of which award a coveted ‘five-bubble’ rating. 

Tripadvisor said the world-winning beach is 'known for its dramatic red, sandy cliffs and can be reached by a wooden staircase', adding: 'it is beloved by Tripadvisor reviewers for its soft, powdery sand, perfect for sunbathing and strolls.'
