For as long as man has walked this earth, man has been drawn to the see – to paraphrase Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick”. There’s just something about the place where the land meets the sea that captures the imagination. Perhaps it’s the knowledge that the waters hold untold mysteries that most of us will never get to experience firsthand. Perhaps it’s just simply the feeling of being on the precipice, wondering just what could be hiding behind the horizon.
Whatever the case may be, when people like to travel, they most often like to travel to coastal destinations. And while any time upon the coast is to be enjoyed, there are simply some coastlines that have something to offer that far exceeds that offered by any other.
On the list below, we’re going to take a closer look at 10 of the world’s most beautiful coastlines in 20 pictures. Just looking at these coastlines will surely capture your imagination, but remember this. Nothing compares to actually being there; so, perhaps your next vacation is meant to be taken at one of these 10 places! Let’s take a look…
