Seilebost Beach on the Isle of Harris was number seven on the list.

The remote location in the Outer Hebrides is surrounded by nature and offers visitors breathtaking views across the waves to Luskentyre and Taransay.

Further north in Sutherland, another hidden gem has been identified as the perfect place to unwind and relax.

Sandwood Bay offers stunning views and was named “reputedly the most beautiful beach in Britain” by Visit Scotland.

The pristine location is four miles from the nearest road and surrounded by cliffs – the perfect escape to a slice of paradise.

And as you rest on the pink sand, look across the water directly to the North Atlantic.

Katrina Lawson, Head of Brand and Acquisitions at Sunsail, said: “With the recent increase in searches for off-grid and remote holidays, we’re excited to introduce you to the world’s best beaches for unwinding.”

“Sailing and being on the water can help you unwind and get into the flowing state of mind where you can truly be present in the moment.

“Each beach on this list is unique in what it offers, from golden sandy coves to pebbly coves, but what they have in common is their serenity and tranquility.”
