Beat the crowds with these under-the-radar beaches around the world.
Lord Howe Island, Australia
This tiny UNESCO World Heritage island in the Pacific Ocean was born from a volcanic eruption around 7 million years ago. With unspoilt white beaches, visitors here are capped at 400 with most people getting around on bicycles. This paradise is just a two-hour flight from Sydney or Brisbane!
Vis Island, Croatia
With beautiful beaches, fresh seafood, locally grown wines and a relaxing lifestyle, Vis Island is perfect for those lazy days by the beach. Surrounded by the clear Adriatic sea, the island is 90 minutes away by catamaran from Split.
Ibo Island, Mozambique
For shipwreck snorkelling and deep-sea diving, look no further than Ibo Island in the Indian Ocean. With 32 coral islands surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters filled with marine life, enjoy magical sunsets and a day excursion to a nearby sandbank for a private lunch in the middle of the ocean.
Cala De Algaiarens, Menorca
Pristine white coves backed by pine forests, accessed by a leap and a swim from nearby rocks, and clear, Caribbean-colored sea everywhere. Pack a picnic to enjoy on the beach.
