La Concha and El Prado in world top 10 beaches and museums lists
13 July 2018 @ 22:38

A BEACH in the Basque Country has been voted the sixth-best in the world, beating others in the Seychelles, Sydney and Cape Verde, whilst Madrid's El Prado art museum has squeezed into the global top 10, according to the latest TripAdvisor Travellers' Choice Awards.

San Sebastián's La Concha beach (first picture) – so-called because of its shell (concha, in Spanish) shape had some tough competition in a list topped by Grace Bay in Providenciales, in the idyllic Caribbean island nation of Turks & Caicos, followed by the Bahia do Sancho in Fernando de Noronha in north-eastern Brazil, Varadero beach in Cuba, Eagle beach in Aruba and Seven Mile beach in Grand Cayman.

In fact, the top 10 is dominated by beaches in the Caribbean, with Seven Mile beach in Jamaica eighth, Bávaro beach in the Dominican Republic ninth and the north beach in México's Las Mujeres Islands 10th – the only one outside of this area, aside from Bahia do Sancho and La Concha, is Clearwater beach in Florida, USA.

Lower down the list and in descending order are the beach in Elafonissi, Greece; Falesia beach in Olhos de Agua, Portugal; Fig Tree Bay in Protaras, Cyprus; Bournemouth in the UK; Anse Lazio beach on Praslin Island in the Seychelles; Manly beach, across the harbour from Sydney, Australia; Santa Mônica, in Cape Verde; Agonda, in India; Kleopatra beach in Alanya, Turkey; Galápagos beach in Tortuga Bay in the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador; La Spiaggia dei Conigli ('Rabbits' Beach') in Lampedusa, Italy; Sharm El-Luli in Marsa Alam, Egypt; Nungwi in Tanzania; Punta Uva in Costa Rica, and finally at number 25, White beach in Boracay, Malaysia.

I find these lists amusing, but silly.

Quite a meaningless article without photographs!
