Summer may be over in the UK, but there’s still plenty of hot weather and sunshine elsewhere in the world.

If you’re hoping for some winter sun this year, or are already planning your holiday for next year, you may want to familarise yourself with some of the world’s most popular beaches.

TikTok’s travel community – AKA TravelTok – has helped shine a spotlight on a whole plethora of beach spots.

But which are the most viewed on the platform?

Luxury holiday company Destination2 has done the hard work for us and has counted up the number of views on TikToks that include each beach as a hashtag.

And TikTok’s top 10 beaches have been compiled as a result.

So add these to your bucket list if you’re after tranqulity, picturesque views and sunny skies.
