The Indonesian island of Bali has the best beaches in the world, according to U.S. News & World Report. The magazine says “the sun-drenched beaches extend into brilliant green hills peppered with ancient temples. Kuta and Seminyak’s white sands draw travelers far and wide. But Lovinya beach’s tranquil pebbly shores and calm waters are equally appealing for beachgoers seeking seclusion.”
