Beach + Island

Hidden Beaches

by Bob Payne

Just about everybody loves the beach. For confirmation, try finding a spot to spread your towel on a popular strand when it's umbrella and lounge-chair season. But a beach you can love without having to share—such as Florida's Cayo Costa pictured here—that's our idea of heaven. Some of those, as you'll see from our list, are so far off the beaten path that to reach them almost requires the services of a camel that knows how to use a GPS. Others are just over that hill no one else has bothered to climb (accommodations can be rudimentary, but it goes with the territory). All, however, have one thing in common: Your footprints in the sand will remain untouched—at least until the next tide.
