As summer begins to set in, it is only natural that we dream of a holiday with clear blue waters and sandy beaches. But why settle for Goa or Kerala when you can use a personal loan to visit a more exotic beach destination abroad?

That’s right! With easy financing available thanks to personal loans for travel, you can visit any of these 10 beautiful beaches from all over the world.

Ipanema, Brazil
Rio is home one of the world's best city-beaches. For beach culture and night life, head straight to Ipanema, and walk all the way to its easternmost tip, Arpoador, where you can soak in stunning views of the entire length of beach all the way to the Dois Irmãos mountain in the west. This beach is favourite with surfers as well as with families, and is notorious for moonlit dips in the summer months.

Paradise Beach, Greece
Here in Mykonos you can find the best sands in the Aegean. Mykonos is also one of the wildest party hotspots in the country, so if beaches and parties are your thing, make a beeline for Paradise (pun intended!). Make sure you book in time for the monthly full-moon party and get started at the Tropicana Beach Bar.

Anse Lazio, Praslin, Seychelles
The pink sands and towering cliffs of Anse Source d’Argent make it one of the most beautiful beaches in world - not to mention one of the most photographed. As an added bonus, the Veuve Nature Reserve is located nearby, the last place on the planet where the rare black paradise flycatcher bird can be spotted.

7 Mile Beach, Jamaica
This beach is one of the longest stretches of sand in the world, and easily one of the most beautiful. It is flanked by stunning cliffs on both sides, and Rick's Cafe, named one of the coolest beach bars in the world, is perched on top of these cliffs for a stunning view of the oceans below.

Maya Bay, Thailand
Maya Bay, one of Ko Phi Phi's most lush tropical beaches, was the setting for the iconic cult classic film, The Beach. Unspoilt waters, pristine white sands and endless beach shacks will keep you going through the warm and humid Thai weather.

Bells Beach, Australia
In addition to being incredibly scenic, this beach is also home to Rip Curl Pro, the world's oldest surfing competition that has been held here since the early 1960s. Located on the gorgeous Great Ocean Road, you are guaranteed stunning views on the drive here as well.

South Beach, Miami
South Beach is possibly the most famous beach in the world to indulge in that favourite of all sports - people-watching. With clubs just across the street from the beach, and pool parties on beachfront hotels, this is one place that the party never ends!

Bahia Gardner, Galapagos
Located on 4-million-year-old volcanic islands, these beaches come with historic value as well as generous servings of natural beauty. Famous for its many endemic species, you can spot the albatross, sea lions, the red lava lizard, and the Española mockingbird here.

Mosquito Bay, Puerto Rico
Famously called the Bioluminescent Bay, this beach puts on a natural light show every evening when the dinoflagellates are disturbed. They emit an enchanting trail of neon blue light, and you can rent a glass-bottomed boat to see it up close and personal.

Glass Beach, Hawaii
This beach is covered with clear blue and brown glassy pebbles, and is truly a sight to behold! Science geeks will be interested to know that it takes the ocean between ten and thirty years to create these pebbles - and they make for great souvenirs to carry back home!
