The people at have polled travel writers and professionals from around the world to come up with what looks like a good list of the world's most wonderful beaches.

I was asked to be one of the judges/contributors to the list, and it was a pleasure to spend some time thinking about the great beaches of the world. I think our beautiful blue globe has too many beaches for any one list to include all the best, but this is an excellent list with a number of categories. Just click on the titles to check out each list.
