Longest Beach in the World-Praia do Cassino Beach, Brazil
The longest beach in the world is the Praia do Cassino Beach, which is located in Brazil. Stretching an amazing 157 miles, it runs from Rio to Uruguay. Now, to really give an idea of the stretch of the longest beach in the world, we have done some research on how long it would take to walk the entire stretch. Using Naismiths Rule which states that 3 miles is equivalent to 1 hour of walking. It would take an estimated 52 hours of uninterrupted walk to cover the entire beach stretch. This calculation is based on all other variables in Naismiths Rule not being considered such as climbing, descent and break time.

20 minutes break for each hour of walking to enjoy the scenery
