These are Asia's best beaches of 2016

Plus where to stay when you’re there

A beach holiday can be the ultimate relaxing vacay…or a complete nightmare, if the spot you land up at is full of sandflies, coarse sand, murky waters – you get the picture.

But how do you make sure you get exactly what’s in the brochure? How to guarantee that all that white sand, crystal-clear blue waters and gently swaying palm trees will be lined up for you to Instagram when you arrive?

There’s trial and error, of course…or you could just go by TripAdvisor’s Top 10 Travellers’ Choice Beaches in Asia. After all, thousands of happy, non-sandfly-bitten travellers can’t be wrong...right?

Read on for this year’s list of Asia’s best beaches from the world’s largest travel site, plus recommended value hotels nearby to stay at when you’re there. 

#10: Radhanagar Beach

Havelock Island, Andaman and Nicobar, India

Radhanagar beach

Visitors to this beach will be treated to a stunning shoreline and gorgeous coral reefs that are perfect for snorkelling. The nearby restaurants, meanwhile, offer fresh seafood with an unparalleled sunset view. One TripAdvisor reviewer raved, “This beach is beautiful…the water is perfectly clear and blue for tens of metres, the forest is lush and wild and the sand is soft and white.”

Recommended nearby hotel: Munjoh Ocean Resort, bookable on TripAdvisor for an average of $301/night*.
