sun, sand, surf, and solitude
With overtourism triggering the closure of some of Southeast Asia’s most famed and picturesque beaches, finding your own idyllic slice of paradise may seem like an increasingly challenging prospect. But not to worry, there are still plenty of secluded stretches of sand to be found around the world, places that don’t require staying at an exclusive private resort to gain access. While these off-the-beaten-path destinations may not necessarily be easy to reach, the reward is peaceful and pristine beach experience, far from the crowds.
