Where : St. Barths, French Caribbean

Why it made our list: Located at the end of the island's airport (which claims to have one of the world's shortest landing strips at 2,100 feet), this beautiful beach comes with an air of danger; in 2009, a plane ran out of runway and crashed on it. Thankfully, no one was injured.

4. Maya Bay

Where: Fernando de Noronha, Brazil
Why it made our list: Our Hands-down best beach in the world, this Brazilian escape -- with its turquoise waters and coral reefs -- is super secluded and really, really difficult to get to; as in, down a dirt road, a few rickety ladders, and through a tight crevasse -- you get the idea.

7. Bells Beach
