A Siesta Key beachgoer described it in Tripadvisor review as a “Pristine beach that never seems to end. Photographer’s dream. A place in the sun that warrants returning again and again.”

Florida’s Saint Pete Beach, Pensacola Beach and Clearwater Beach are among the top five beaches listed in the U.S. Ka’anapali Beach in Hawaii also made the top five.

Travelers will have to venture south of the equator, however, to hit the sands of Tripadvisor’s number one beach in the world: Baia do Sancho in Brazil.

Siesta Key Beach was named the No. 11 beach in the world.
