Beautiful water and pure white sand at Hyams Beach, Australia
Officially the whitest sand in the world according to the Guiness Book of World Records, Hyams Beach at Jervis Bay is a great "off the beaten path" destination. A few hours south of Sydney, Jervis Bay is more of a local spot. Rent a car and drive yourself down; stay in a house on St Georges Basin Lake, or even on the beach, while only paying modest prices. You won't find crazy nightlife, or busy shops & restaurants, Jervis Bay is a place to get away from the masses of Bondi style beaches.

The Docks of Marina Chapelín in Varadero
Varadero is located on the Hicacos Peninsula in the province of Matanzas, Cuba. Varadero is a resort town known for its 12 miles of white sand beaches. It is not known for its deep-sea fishing out of Marina Chapelín. The lack of notoriety of the deep-sea fishing should have been a good indicator of what to expect, but having already acquired my transdermal scopolamine patch, I pretty much had to go.
