Varadero amongst the most popular beaches in the world on Instagram

The utter bliss of going on holidays to a beautiful tropical destination with the sun blazing and the soothing waves of a beach moving back and forward are moments travellers usually choose to capture as treasured memories.

The social media app, Instagram, which has become the planet’s top platform for sharing photos, recently revealed the beach of Varadero in Cuba was one of the most frequently snapped destinations by its users. The beauty of this pristine, white-sand beach has allowed it to occupy one of the tops spots in terms of popular holiday hubs.

This result was generated by TravelSupermarket website, which recently analysed the number of pictures published on Instagram. The tour operator expert took the number of hashtags using the name of Varadero as the measuring bar that placed it as one of the most popular beaches in the world, along with its reviews on TripAdvisor, which rated the destination over 4.5 stars.

Located in the narrow Hicacos Peninsula, Varadero holds a reputation as the most stunning beach in Cuba and one of the most striking in the entire world. Surrounded by big resorts and blessed with the natural beauty of fine sands, tall palm trees, warm and clear waters and colourful marine life, Varadero is without a doubt a destination that travellers look to immortalise through photos.

Thanks to admiring holidaymakers who shared their pictures on the platform, some of the other top destinations within the Caribbean included Horseshoe Bay, Bermuda (in third place); another Cuban destination, Cayo Coco (fourth place); Bavaro, Dominican Republic (fifth place); Pink Sands, Bahamas (eighth place) and Playa Paraiso in Mexico (tenth place).
