Secluded Yet World's Most Famous Beach Destinations to Explore

Beaches continue to be one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, the favorite spots bringing in higher densities of people every single year. For many of us, the ideal holiday does not include the hustle and bustle of busy crowds, the noise, or the pollution it comes with. So, if you’re itching for a unique, adventurous vacation, then maybe it’s time you explore a hidden beach. One of its many appeals is the seclusion and privacy as well as the discovery of majestic preserved nature. And the best part is that many of these locations are easy to find. However, some are slightly more difficult, but that can equally come with the joy of adventure and triumph. We’re making it easier for you and looking at some of the best-secluded locations, world’s most famous beaches with unique characteristics and benefits.

Cala Llentrisca, Ibiza

Located in Ibiza, the popular small island off the coast of Spain, this beach cove is challenging to get to, but the payoff is incredible. It is reported to be especially beautiful in the morning and ideal for snorkeling, with its unique clear green waters. To get to the hidden location, one must drive to Es Cubells and park in the plaza. Then, the path to Cala Llenstrisca leads down a steep hill to the pebble beach. Once there, there are traditionally painted Fisherman’s huts, which means you will be near. And don’t forget to bring everything you need with you, as there are no facilities!

Ton Sai Beach, Thailand 

Thailand is already world-famous for its tropical locations and beauty. However, this remote island (etched between Phuket and Ko Lanta) remains a relatively quiet location. It’s famous for its minimal, laid-back aesthetic. There are beautiful, towering cliffs perfect for climbing and waters great for kayaking. It makes for an amazingly eye-catching, other-worldly location ideal for exploration. Amongst the beach is quaint bars, so if you’re looking for a relatively secluded beach but still want the benefits of activities, this might be the ideal location for you.

Anapai Beach, New Zealand

Anapai Beach is a gorgeous, golden stretch of beach located along the Abel Tasman National Park. The waters are famous for their jewel tone and calm, serene energy, perfect for sunbathing. If one needs a quiet beach day, its lagoon (between the rocky towers) is no less than ideal. It’s great for swimming at low tide and offers stunning rock formations and the native Kanuka rainforest for exploration. It has become one of the area’s most avid locations for hidden beach seekers in recent years.

White Park Bay, Northern Ireland

A slight deviation from the previous tropical spots, this location is no less gorgeous. Five hundred miles from London and located along County Antrim’s northern coastline, White Park Bay is an epic arc of three miles of white sand and the first World Heritage site in Northern Ireland. It’s a pristine, picturesque beach that has managed to stay quiet even in its most scorching summers. It’s an absolutely beautiful site with green fields and soft blue waters, inspiring many paintings over the years, and it’s clear as to why.

Trancoso, Brazil

Located within the city of Porto Seguro, many celebrities have traveled to this destination for its privacy and untouched beauty. Although a quaint fishing village (there are no luxurious dining experiences or boutiques to be found here), there is much to its appeal, with a chance to be immersed in the local culture alongside exploring some of the world’s most secluded, stunning beaches. To add to this, there are some unique bohemian shops, cafes, and restaurants that offer the authentic taste of Brazilian food.

Man O-War, Dorset

This location is the actual ‘desktop background brought to life’ experience, with limestone-carved arches, jagged rocks in the distance cutting through rich blue waters, and outstanding green cliff views. It tops many lists in terms of the most memorable beach destinations. Located along the Jurassic coast (130 miles from central London), it’s a steep 800-meter drop from the clifftop parking. However, the long walk toward the beach is well worth it. There are lovely clean and shallow waters to swim in and a mix of sand and pebble beach. It’s safe to say this is one location you should bring a fully charged camera.

Muir Beach, California

We’ve aimed to give a variety of different locations, each with its unique characteristics. The last beach on this list showcases gorgeous dark green hills with a scenic array of forestry. Situated 3 miles away from the famous Muir Woods National Monument in California sits a hidden cove that features an unobstructed, phenomenal view of the Pacific Coast. Monarch butterflies flutter over rich purple flowers around the land, making it a sight out of a fictional storybook. Although it’s gained popularity for its beauty by the locals, it stays relatively untouched by tourists, making it a location to put on your list if you’re ever in the area.

If you seek solitude then a getaway that keeps you away from the mainstream is the best solution. Here we have featured world’s most famous beaches for you to plan a solo or romantic trip. You can enjoy a seamless experience when you plan ahead for such unique vacations.
