Best Beach Awards 2013: Travel Channel's Second Annual List Highlights World's Best Beaches (PHOTOS)

Where to go if you're looking for romance, adventure or just a great boardwalk.

The Travel Channel is getting in on the "best beaches" game and has announced its second-annual readers' picks for the best beaches in 10 categories.

Unlike with TripAdvisor's list, which highlights the 25 best beaches overall, Travel Channel asked readers to vote on various themes -- sexiest beach, most family friendly, best undiscovered, among others -- to come up with nine beaches (one beach won in two categories) that should be on everyone's radar as summer approaches.

Herewith, their picks.
