How can you resist this? A beach that can give you a magical and relaxing ambiance. A trivia for you, according to Cnn.com, the beach gets its name from a phenomenon witnessed by the first travelers to the region — the shallow waters appear to fizz at low tide as if the beach is swimming in bubbly. The effect is caused by gas escaping from volcanic rocks on the seafloor.

5.Matira Beach, Bora Bora, Tahiti

It balances the nervous system making you more relieved from stress. Once you develop a relaxed state of mind, you will eventually build a positive attitude within you, making you a better person.
