Playa Blanca, Holguin Cuba

This beach is still out of the tourism radar in Cuba.

There are not many services on site but finding your private beach is worth it in Playa Blanca.

Another thing you should delve into is a market visit: Try the arts and crafts market at Marina Rubicón, on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar

Mergui is a beach island paradise that is less known on tourism map for certain reasons. With some 800 islands out to the Andaman Sea, only private Myanmar Tours with a charter yacht or cruise can explore the area.

Bordered by Lampi national park, this archipelago has only a few resorts. A trip to Mergui is an exciting water adventure. There are countless sun-drenched beaches, stunning diving sites, some even with sharks, and exceptional underwater world.

Réunion, France

To find a good oceanic treat in Africa, Reunion is one of the premier choices. The island is dramatically diverse and offers an abundance of sandy beaches.  Whether you are looking for a honeymoon beachfront resort, French cultural seaside towns or enjoy the thrilling surf, Reunion has them all.  

If you fancy a beach with pristine coral reef, head to Hermitage,  an impressive beach is In Boucan Canot, and to try out black sand Tremblet beach is a great spot to be.

Con Dao Archipelago, Vietnam

Con Dao is an untouched paradise.

Con Dao is an untouched paradise.

Tucked away from all famous tourist attractions, Con Dao is mostly untouched. The island is sun-drenched all the year round.

Imagine precious experiences like spotting a sea turtle, diving without any other tourist or beholding a spectacular sunset.
