These 12 beaches range from a paradise-like nudist beach in Mexico to a secret cove in Greece. They could attract tourists from the area, but they wouldn’t if it were. You must add at least one to your summer must-see list, and you should do so immediately
Portugal’s southernmost region, the Algarve is full of beautiful beaches. Dona Ana is one of the best. The golden sand is surrounded by steep, ocher-colored stratum rock cliffs. Clear blue waters bathe the beach. It’s also not far from Central Lagos, where it’s easy to find a frothy beverage after the beach or a bifana (a grilled pork sandwich on crusty bread that is the Portuguese equivalent to a hamburger).
The beach is known for being a popular spot for nudists, yogis, and hippies. Zipolite is located in the southern part of Mexico’s Oaxaca state. Here, the iconic beach scenes of Y tu Mama tambien were captured. You can relax while enjoying fresh fish and the delicious juice of a coconut with a machete. You can swim here but be careful, the strong and dangerous underwater currents make it a dangerous beach.
The small Navagio Beach, also known as the “Shipwreck Beach”, and the “Smugglers Cove”, is where you will find the remains of Panagiotis. This ship was wrecked off the coast Zakynthos’ in 1983. Ironically, the hidden beach can only be reached by boat. It is surrounded by rocky coves. The trip takes approximately half an hour and taxis depart from Porto Vromi each hour.
Bathsheba is a village on the rugged west coast Barbados. It is home to a fishing family and their families.

New Chums Beach is located in Wainuiototo bay, on the northeast coast, of the Coromandel Peninsula in New Zealand. It stretches almost a kilometer along golden and white sand with no infrastructure and an indigenous forest. This enclave, which is one of the most unspoiled beaches in New Zealand’s North Island, is ideal for anyone looking to escape the human footprint.
Peru is known for its tiny beaches and small bathing suits. But the Land of the Incas also houses Mancora, a small village with long rows of sun-kissed beaches along the north Pacific coast. While Mancora is the most well-known beach on Peru’s North Shore, it is actually Rio de Janeiro. After a long day of sun, you can stop by the village’s center for ceviche and strong passion fruit daiquiri.
Railay, like other beaches on this page, can only be reached by boat because of the limestone cliffs which block access to the mainland. However, it is well worth the short trip. The small peninsula of southern Thailand actually has four beaches. All of them are excellent options. It is often ranked among the top beaches in the world and can be very crowded, but because of its beauty, it will probably not even matter.
El Matador is located just 9.5km north of Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway. It’s located north of Zuma Beach, and south of La Piedra Beach. You can only reach this romantic beach with its giant rocks and caves by following a gravel path. There is no lifeguard service so it’s not recommended for children. You can find it here. It is common to see couples who are extremely affectionate and hold each other close, while a photographer captures the “candid moment”.
Oahu, Maui and Maui are top-ranked tourist destinations on all Hawaiian islands. However, Kauai is known as the Garden Island. It boasts some the most beautiful beaches in the state. Poipu Beach is the safest spot for swimming, snorkeling, and surfing. It’s located on the southern shore of the island. The beaches are formed by two small bays separated by a protruding sandy spit, which is often home for monachus. They are devilishly sweet, but they shouldn’t be disturbed.
This beautiful little beach is located in Maine’s Acadia National Park. It stretches over Mount Desert Island and Isle au Haut. Although the water is not particularly hot (it rarely exceeds thirteen degrees in summer), one can still enjoy the granite mountains surrounding it and its eponymous sandy beach. The beach’s pink-colored sand is composed first of tiny fragments of shells that have been eroded by the tide for thousands of years.
The beach can be crowded by campers on summer weekends. It is also one of the most beautiful spots on the Olympic Coast due to its stunning tide pools, coastal forests, and sea stacks. You can hike through the woods or walk along the beach. Or you can camp overnight. You can intimidate others by saying the name correctly if you choose to camp on a busy weekend.
Florida’s beaches are not original, as we all know. Dry Tortugas Beach is not associated with Ft. Lauderdale, Siesta Key or Miami. This powder-sand beach is located at the Gulf of Mexico’s end, near the Florida Keys. It can only be reached by plane or ferry, making it less crowded than other beaches in Florida. Take your snorkeling gear to enjoy the tranquil blue-green waters with sea turtles.
