The concept of Tropical Beaches means beaches that are located between the two tropics, the Tropic of Cancer north of the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn south of it.
You may take a world map and see that many countries are located within these two lines. Being closer to the equator brings to these countries a warm climate year round. The best examples of tropical areas are the Caribbean and Central America, the Indian Ocean and the South Pacific.
