What's your favourite beach in the world?
We're mapping the best beaches in the world, with the help of our readers.
As summer nears, we can't help daydreaming about that perfect sandy spot, where the water laps soothingly aginst the shore or rolls in perfect sets.
Where the beach shack sell fresh lobster and cold beer. Or the lux club bring frozen margaritas and oysters to your sun lounger.
We know you've all got a favourite beach story, and we're pretty sure it's somewhere we'd rather be.
So where's the best beach you've ever been to? We'll be mapping all your favourite spots an interactive map below - so tell us its exact location, why it's so good, what your memory of it is. And don't forget to include a photo.
