Top 10 beaches in Asia

1 - White Beach, Boracay, Visayas, Philippines
White Beach is what most people are here for. Not only is it a lovely stretch of powdery white sand against azure water, it's also the commercial center of the island. The long beach is divided into three sections, Station 1, Station 2, and Station 3. Station 1 is the northernmost and has the widest beachfront, where prime hotels and resorts are located. Accommodations are pricier, but quality is generally the best as well. Station 2 is the commercial and geographical center of white beach. This is the center of it all for for shopping, eating, partying, and etc. That said, the beach here is also the most crowded, and the area the noisiest. Station 3 is the southernmost section; quieter than station 2, it is the least developed, and also the lowest priced. All of White Beach from the northernmost tip of Station 1 to the southernmost of Station 3 (~4km) is open to the public, so one can relax and/or swim wherever you like, regardless of hotel location. - WikiTravel

2 - Agonda Beach, Goa, India
Perfect if you want to get away from it all. It's not crowded or built up...all you see in either direction are beach huts. No hotels. The sand is smooth, not rocky. And, in February, the water was perfect for swimming. Sunsets are not to be missed. - mwcress Meadville, Pennsylvania

3 - Railay Beach, Krabi, Thailand
Railay Beach—also frequently referred to as Rai Leh or Rai Lay—is a small peninsula just south of the town of Ao Nang, Krabi. It’s attached to Krabi’s mainland, but cut off by towering limestone cliffs from all the roads and towns. This isolation from the mainland, and the complete absence of cars and roads, gives Railay Beach a very island feel. This idyllic beach setting attracts thousands of visitors every year, and Krabi is famous around the world with rock climbers for the stunning limestone rocks on Railay and neighboring Ton Sai Beach. - Railay Beach Krabi

4 -  Radhanagar Beach, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India
"Best beach I have ever visited. Blue and green water. Sunset is wonderful here. Well-maintained beach. Don't eat in nearby restaurant of this beach as food quality is very poor." -POONAMGUPTA Delhi

5 - Phra Nang Beach, Krabi, Thailand
Located in Krabi, Phuket's sister province, only 55 kilometers northeast of Phuket, this beach has been ranked as one of the most beautiful in the world along with neighboring Rae Lai Beach. The Phra Nang Peninsula is completely cut off to land transport by walls of rock, which tower over the white sand and sparkling sea. Surrounded by tropical plants and serenaded by the call of colorful birds, this must be as close to paradise as you can get. - Phra Nang beach Yahoo Travel

White Beach, Boracay, Visayas, Philippines
White Beach (Boracay) is voted as the best beach in Asia.
6 - Nai Harn Beach, Phuket, Thailand
Nai Harn is one of the Phuket's most popular places with in-the-know locals. This relatively tranquil place has only a few hotels including the The Royal Phuket Yacht Club and is a popular anchorage for boats during the high season. - Phuket beaches - Nai Harn

7 - Cavelossim Beach, Goa, India
"Fantastic beach, clean, safe, lots of bars, warm water and water sports. You can walk as far as you like and wont be disturbed by any sellers, as they have been banned." -Derek W

8 - Otres Beach, Sihanoukville, Cambodia

he water is clean. The tourists there are mostly more mature (not so many obnoxious young English yobbos hopped up on red bull and the cheapest liquor they can get in their gob). This place has changed hugely in the last 2 years. There used to be only a single beach hut restaurant. Now there are 50 places. I will turn awful one day, but for now it is great value and clean and quiet. - BandBreviewer HCMC

9 - Secret Lagoon Beach, Mimaropa, Philippines
"You don't want to miss it its one of the best spots in El nido bring your underwater camera!! we had an amazing time there very surreal experience." - Johnny K Tel Aviv, Israel

10 - Yapak Beach, Boracay, Visayas, Philippines
White Beach, with its lovely stretch of powdery white sand against azure water may be what most people are on the Boracay Island for but  if you want to get away from the crowds at White Beach Yapak offers a  beautiful alternative.  It is not as fine as the main white beach, but surely it is clean and well maintained with less people.
