Sometimes you just want — or need — to get away, and a crowded beach just won’t cut it. Whether you’re looking for a romantic locale or a remote stretch of sand to listen to the waves roll in, these five beaches won’t disappoint.
1. Palm Beach, Barbuda
Located on the twin island nation of Antigua and Barbuda, Palm Beach stretches 13 miles on the smaller island of Barbuda. A 20 minute flight or 3 hour boat ride from Antigua, Barbuda has less inhabited beaches than the more than 365 Antigua boasts. Palm Beach is the real gem of the twin islands, as it is only accessible by boat, according to AntiguaNice’s guide to the island. The small cove has strechtes of white and pink sand and offers snorkeling and sun bathing without an audience.
