Copacabana, Brasil

Truly a beach for everyone - Brazil's richest, poorest and everyone inbetween frequent what is potentially the worlds most recognised beach all year long. Skimpy swimwear, hot bodies and an abundance of footballs are what fill the entire expanse of clean white sand.

In Australia's far North Queensland, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton island's Catseye beach has a little slice of everything. Doing nothing: Check. Doing almost anything else beach related: Check. From luxury massages to paddle boarding, snorkelling and cocktails, This little piece of heaven is rarely crowded and always alluring.

Jervis Bay, Australia

Always atop the "Whitest Sand" lists, Jervis Bay's more than 10km's of pure white sand beaches are often without even a footprint from another human. Kangaroos, on the other hand, are in abundance, and with the cool calm waters, it is an ideal spot for the perfect romantic vacation.

Oro Bay, Isle of Pines, New Caledonia

Potentially one of the most unique sections of paradise on the planet, Oro Bay is actually inside of the worlds largest lagoon. The beach, surrounded by towering pine trees is as pristine as it gets. It's remote enough to have all to yourself, and beautiful enough to fill your instagram for years to come.

Hi Beach, Nice, France

Despite being built with pebbles (making them the perfect mother nature's foot massage), everyone flocks to Hi beach from Cannes and Monte Carlo. With it's amazing boardwalk, it's a must-see for any self respecting summer lover.

Has your Instagram feed been taken over by sickening beach shots and dolphin emojis this summer? Yup, us too. All of these smug shots have got us thinking about our next beach getaway, so we've turned to founders of We Are Handsome, husband and wife duo Jeremy and Katinka Somers, for their beach know how.

Just in case you don't know, We Are Handsome is the cult swimwear label known for their wild animal one pieces and sunset print bikinis. Chances are you'll have spotted their one pieces on the likes of Rihanna and Beyonce. Beaching is part of Jeremy and Katinka's job (err, jealous). They are based in Sydney, Australia and are passionate about travelling. If you can handle any more beach shots on your Instagram feed, they are worth a follow @wearehandsome.
