The World's Best Beaches, According To TripAdvisor (PHOTOS)

Every year around this time, TripAdvisor releases its list of the world's best beaches. Culled from a list of 276 beaches around the world, the ranking highlights users' favorites in, predominantly it seems, South America and the Caribbean (though America gets some top billing with four beaches, three of which are in Florida).

Whether you have a beach vacation in mind, or are simply day dreaming of warmer climes, here are TripAdvisor's 25 beaches around the world.
