    Published on February 22, 2013

    tripadvisor_logoNew Delhi : TripAdvisor , the world’s largest travel site , today announced the winners of its 2013 Travellers’ Choice Beaches Awards.  Based entirely on reviews and ratings from millions of TripAdvisor travellers, the awards recognize travellers’ favourite beaches in India and around the world. The list includes 276 winning beaches across 40 countries.


    Goa reiterates its position as the beach capital of the country with 12 of the top 25 beaches coming from the state. Agonda beach in Goa, also known as the silent beach, tops the list in India followed by Radhanagar beach in Andaman & Nicobar.

    This year travellers’ favourite beaches go beyond Goa to include blissful stretches of sand and surf and coconut-lined waterfronts from across the country.  Goa is followed by Kerala & Maharashtra as states with most number of winning beaches which also includes the unique, Muzhappilangad in Kerala – India’s only drive in beach.  This year, beaches from Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu make their debut on the Travellers’ Choice list.

    “While Goa shines again this year and is undisputedly the most popular Indian beach retreat for domestic and foreign tourists, India’s rich coastline stretching halfway around the country is dotted with other beautiful beach destinations which are not as well explored or famous. Kerala, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka & Andhra Pradesh – all boast of gorgeous beaches and the Awards list has put them on the map for beach lovers” said Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor, India.
