Top 10 World Beaches

The best beaches around according to CNNGo.

CNNGo only recently listed Clifton Beach as one of the world's best city beaches. Now it turns out the travel arm of CNN International, has listed 'South Africa's tourism capital' Cape Town as one of the World's 10 Most Loved Cities.

According to reports on Cape Town Tourism's website, the list was compiled by CNNgo after trawling the web media 'best of' praise, solicited recommendations from local correspondents, bloggers and travellers, scraped the bottom of every Internet and press barrel we could find for reasons not to include these conurbations, and still came up with what we think is a definitive list of the world's most loved cities."

The Mother City's other accolades include TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice Best Destination 2011, as well as the 2014 World Design Capital, while Table Mountain was listed as a New7Wonder of Nature.

Here's the full list of the World's 10 Most Loved Cities according to CNNGo:
