This is what Royal Caribbean claims to be a ‘scientifically proving’ mathematical formula to determine what makes a good shoreline! And if we are to follow this, Blackpool is among the world’s best shorelines.


Psychologist Dr David Holmes invented this formula for the cruise line. The factors that you need to take into account is the clarity of the horizon, sand quality, sea colour, cleanliness, air quality, weather and interesting features.


Although many of these elements are many of these elements are subjective, Royal Caribbean claimed that “consensus of opinion prefers white or near white very fine sand that is deep and soft to the touch”.


It also added that it is good to have some discrete point of interest to break the predictable scene slightly but not obscuring the sea, sand and horizon. And, this may be a natural feature such as a distant mountain or a piece of stunning architecture even a lighthouse.


Laila Swann, internationnaly acclaimed travel blogger applied the equation to her recent travel destinations and found the following results:

  1. Dubai, UAE
  2. Blackpool, UK
  3. Gulf of Mexico, US
  4. Cape Cod National Seashore, US
  5. Inchydoney, West Cork, Ireland
  6. Twelve Apostles, Victoria, Australia
  7. Cape Town, South Africa
  8. Cavelossim, Goa, India
  9. Krabi, Thailand
  10. Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia


The results may be disappointing, but can we argue with science?
