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)

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.

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)

Brett hopes to one day reach the shores of far-flung Tristan da Cunha, the most remote of all the inhabited archipelagos on Earth…as to what he’ll do when he gets there, he hasn’t a clue. Over the last 10 years, London, New York, Cape Town and Pondicherry have all proudly been referred to as home. Now it’s Copenhagen’s turn, where he lends his travel expertise to momondo.com.
