The top two were Spiaggia dei Conigli - Lampedusa, Italy and Praia da Falésia - Olhos de Agua, Portugal.

Some of the comments about Playa de Muro read: “A long, white sandy beach which you will find hard to beat. Great for everybody but particularly families with children as the beach is gently shelving and has lifeguard coverage - who are particularly hot when it comes to safety.”

Another posted: Playa de Muro has a wonderful, sandy beach with a warm, clear turquoise sea. Ideal for children because of its gentle, shallow waters.”
