When booking a beach holiday we all look for similar things: sun, sea, sand, tranquility, beauty, luxury... However for the most of us the problem is usually found in our pockets not being quite deep enough, which more often than not results in ending up on an overcrowded beach on the Costa del Sol sipping on a 3EUR cocktail. But what is a beach holiday like for those of us for whome money is no object? Where are the places where people with a few extra thousand go to holiday in pure luxury and blissful serenity? Here are the most expensive beach destinations in the world.
Fiji is made up of over 300 islands, each one unique, beautiful and of course perfect for a holiday.

The most expensive of the lot are Laucala Island and Dolphin Island.
