20 Incredible Beaches in Asia

To kick off a month of all things Asia, we’ve chosen 20 of its most beautiful beaches for our first Asian 5 Minute Vacation. Finding stunning beaches in Asia is incredibly easy; narrowing this list down to 20 proved incredibly hard. As with our post on beaches in Europe, this is by no means a guide to the most beautiful beaches of the continent, but rather a taster of the great variety to be found. You’ll find some well-known ones here (ie. Maya Bay, the setting for the 2000 filmĀ The Beach), as well as some that are not quite so familiar (ie. the beaches of Taiwan and South Korea), but all are worthy of a spot on our list.

Have you been to any of these beaches? Which do you think is the most beautiful? Show your favourites some love—let’s see which gets the most votes!
