Who would have thought Hidden Beach actually used to be a test bomb site in the 1900s? Located off the coast of Mexico on the Marieta Islands, Hidden Beach is a beautifully secluded beach which can be reached through a water tunnel. Once through the tunnel, visitors can enjoy the assorted marine life and pristine surroundings.

Alter do Chão, Brazil

Also known as the Island of Love (Ilha do Amor), Alter do Chão features a perfectly white sandbar and is located in a vibrant town. Enjoy scenic boat rides on an Amazon river cruise or simply relax on one of Brazil’s most stunning beaches.

Phu Quoc Island, Vietnam

Phu Quoc

Overshadowed by its neighbouring destinations such as Phuket and Koh Samui in Thailand, Phu Quoc is located in the Gulf of Thailand, just off the coast of Vietnam. Phu Quoc is a tropical paradise and despite being the largest island in the Gulf of Thailand remains under the radar. However, with a plethora of unspoiled beaches and ample snorkelling opportunities we predict it won’t be a secret for long.

Isla Bastimentos, Panama
