We don’t mind driving for a couple of hours to find it. We don’t mind hiking for hours or scrambling barefoot over jagged rocks to reach it. We even don’t mind paying a small fee to access it. The one thing that’ll keep us from hanging out on a beautiful beach is overcrowding.
That’s the beauty of a secluded beach (such as the one in our featured image – Wineglass Bay in Tasmania by britsinvade). Off the beaten track, it doesn’t lure the masses. Here are five of world’s best hidden beaches.
Pink Beach – Barbuda (Antigua and Barbuda)
This idyllic tropical beach gets its name from the rosy glint that comes off the crushed coral that mixes with its silky soft sand.
Cumberland Island – Georgia (USA)
Access to America’s largest wilderness island is limited to 300 people a day, meaning you’re sure to find a quiet spot on its 1,000 foot wide and miles long beach.
Wineglass Bay – Tasmania (Australia)
This pristine crescent beach/bay is the jewel of the Freycinet National Park, three hours’ drive from Hobart of Tasmania’s eastern coast.
Guludo Beach – Quirimbas National Park (Mozambique)
With whale sharks swimming in the Indian Ocean on one side, and elephants roaming on the other, this beach acts as a virtual border between two nationally protected wildlife ecosystems.
Vallee De L’ortolo – Corsica (France)
Many of the lightly trodden trails that cut across this sparsely populated valley lead to virtually unknown beaches on Corsica’s southwest coastline.
