      Pristine shorelines adorned with breathtaking nature- Cocoa Beach is a Floridian paradise without the city noise, traffic, and fast-paced atmosphere. Not too far from tourist destinations such as Universal Studios or Disney, but a breath of fresh air with sea turtles, idyllic horizons, and balmy weather year-round.

      Known famously for its snow-like white sand and crystal clear blue waters- Whitehaven Beach is a remote Australian treasure. While this beach gets its fair share of foot traffic thanks to the dazzling landscape, idyllic climate, and stunning views, we included Whitehaven Beach in this list due to the effort made by local governments to preserve the environment of the beach. With littering, smoking, and other disturbances banned from the area- Whitehaven is known internationally as an eco-friendly getaway that allows travelers to connect with a pristine shoreline unlike any other.

  • Playa Sucia, Puerto Rico

      A secluded cove in Puerto Rico, Playa Sucia translates to “dirty beach” as a clever misnomer that has resulted in this shoreline being one of the most pristine beaches in the country. With stunning natural landscapes carved by nature, rolling hills, and even a lighthouse visible in the distance- Playa Sucia transports visitors to another realm of tranquility. Entirely untouched by human development, Playa Sucia is an off-the-beaten-path option for adventurers looking for a dreamy European beach getaway.
