There is nothing more satisfying than personally discovering hidden treasures of golden sand and crystal clear water. The simple pleasures of pristine beauty await those fortunate enough to research thoroughly enough, or travel far enough to find them. The thought of a day or more at the one of the best kept beaches rewards the soul with a step back in time, to the likes of several hundred years. Yes, there are a vast number of amazing beach destinations around the world, and people are within their rights to be refer to them as the best. However, they are typically exploited, overcrowded, commercialized, and over hyped! For most stepping away from the tourist tracks into a fantasy of a uninhabited private beach is not attainable – but for those resourceful enough the hidden gems are still here!

Pasir Putih Beach, Bali, Indonesia This beach has coined the nickname White Sand Beach and is the ideal place to escape the hoards of tourists throughout Bali.
