World’s Most Underrated Beaches

We’ve all practically heard about the amazing Australian Gold Coast or the fabled Florida shores. We’ve heard their praise and how their beaches are exhilarating. However, the question whether these are the only places to dip your toes into the sand. The good news is that the answer is no. There are indeed other beaches that have been underrated, yet they are fantastic destinations for a salty adventure. They include:

Pyla Sur Mer, France

This beach is located on the west coast, south of France. Only one hour away from Bordeaux, it is a fantastic beach which boasts the highest sand dune in Europe. The gorgeous white sand stretches for a mile and a half.


Capo Sant’ Andrea, Elba

This island off the Italian coast takes a little boast in the fact that it was where Napoleon was exiled to. Unfortunately, he was an emperor over bewildered subjects for less than a year. Besides the role of Capo Sant’ Andrea in history, it is a small stretch of a white sandy beach bordering crystal clear waters. It also has abundant marine life and spectacular climbable cliffs.


Isle of Lewis, Scotland

Peter May loves to set his original stories in this picture-perfect stretch of sand, sea and pounding surf. The rugged shore goes on for miles and miles.


Goose Rocks Beach, Maine

It is part of Kennebunkport which has earned a reputation as a playground for the rich and richer. Its distance from Kennebunkport makes it less crowded.

Rocha, Uruguay

Rocha is a South American jewel wedged between Brazil and Argentina. Over the years, it has become a must-visit area for eco-tourists. The 100 miles Rocha beach remains unspoiled. It has no high rises, crowds or beach hype.


Agonda Beach, India

Agonda beach lies to the south of Goa, the smallest state in India. It is secluded and rimmed with coconut trees. Of course, there is the occasional beach hut. It is a pristine stretch of sand for you to enjoy but is not a great place for swimming.


Point Lance, Canada

The coast of Newfoundland is dotted with small communities like these, of which many still rely on the sea for their primary sources of nourishment. Point Lance is home to about 120 people and is one of the southernmost towns in Newfoundland. In the view behind the camera it is all Atlantic Ocean until South America!

One hundred miles off Canada’s mainland lies Point Lance. It has a spectacular beach. The sparse population allows you to enjoy the serene environment in entirety without crowded distractions. Though too cold to swim, it is nothing short of awe-inspiring.


Second Beach, Washington

It is every hiker’s dream to visit the breathtaking Olympic beach. It is easily accessible, full of creeks, spruce trees and beautiful wildlife. The sight of the spruce meeting sea will leave you breathless.


Cumberland Island, Georgia

This is 18 miles of pristine dunes, marshes and woodland with a wild touch. You can see wild horses roaming the beaches. What a beautiful sight!


Curacao, the Caribbean

It is known for its perfect weather all throughout the year and 35 beaches that remain untouched by humans! It has an ideal environment for windsurfers, snorkelers and divers.
Underrated beaches offer one thing in common: a pinnacle of pure relaxation. What is this pinnacle? Spectacular scenery, sun, sand and a cold drink. Find your own private patch of sand from these beaches and be assured to never regret it.
