Feeling the cold? Then take a look at our Fab Five Best Beaches from 2012

Fairmont The Palm, Dubai

The first in our count down is the just opened and uber-chic Fairmont The Palm, Dubai. Elegantly framed by palms and with soft golden sand, the beach at The Palm is a perfect way to relax after a day touring this magnificent city.

Ile d’Aix

Taking a step a little closer to home, our second beach is on the Ile d’Aix a small yet perfectly formed island of the cost of Poitou-CharentesFrance. The soft waves lap at the sands and wild flowers, which set the beach on Aix aside from any others in Europe.

Viceroy Riviera MayaFor our third beach we are whisking you away to white sands and clear crystal waters. No I am not dreaming of a Bond Set (but Daniel is welcome to join us anytime), but this beach near Tulum, Playa del CarmenMexico.  And that’s Miss Beach Thursday herself on the left with doppelgänger Abi King!

West Wittering Beach

If you are in the south of England, then our fourth recommendation is perfect to walk off that extra roast potato after a hearty Sunday lunch. West Wittering offers panoramic views of Chichester Harbour and the South Downs beyond, the natural and unspoilt sandy beach has been a favourite destination for a family day out for generations and you can even take the dog!

Il de Ré

For our fifth and final beach we are heading back to France and the idyllic  Il de Ré. The beaches here have long been the playground of the Parisian elite, unsurprising when you consider they are amongst the most beautiful in the world.
