Australia. Despite being a crocodile-infested beach, it was voted the most beautiful in the world

Palm Cove Beach in northeast Australia may be frequented by crocodiles and hurricanes, but it has been named the most beautiful in the world by a specialist magazine. Condé Nast Traveler.

Its two kilometers of white sand against a backdrop of rows of palm trees dominates its rivals such as Honobu in Kauai, an island in Hawaii, Ora in Indonesia or Dune Pilate in France. Palm Cove is located in a crocodile-infested area, and late last year, Tropical Cyclone Jasper hit its luxury restaurants and hotels.

But the town's mayor, Terry James, is convinced it deserves its new title thanks to its natural beauty, especially its “super melaleucas,” an Australian plant also known as the “tea tree.” “Having Palm Cove recognized as the number one beach in the world by a leading magazine and website only confirms what locals already know about Palm Cove,” said Terry James.

Two recognized French beaches

A number of Australian beaches make the magazine's list, including Wategos near Byron Bay, Mona Vale in Sydney's northern suburbs and Noosa in Queensland.

In seventh place (out of 34 listed beaches) in the ranking established by the magazine, we find the beach of Dun du Bilat at the entrance to the Arcachon basin. In thirteenth place we also find Fakarava Atoll in French Polynesia.
