We know Paris. and Thailand. and The Bahamas. and Necar Island. Blah Blah Yada Yada. What about those untapped places that are breathtakingly beautiful but totally uncorrupted by tourists? Behold.........
also known as Makena Beach, or Little Beach. Uninformed tourists will usually never come upon this hidden local favourite of a beach on the north shore of Maui. You have to climb up and thru a steep hill of volcanic rocks to get to it. Perhaps because it hides an illegal nude beach, or maybe because it's waters are sparkling azure, or maybe just because locals like to keep it strictly local. A day of paradise followed by nude moonlight dance parties to bongo drums that are Way more laxed out than the famous ones in Koh Phangan, Thailand make this a paradise you Must see.
Located an hour away from Thailand, accessibly by a 2 hr. Gorgeous Ferry ride via Penang, Malaysia. It's mangroves are what you probably envision when you imagine "paradise".
Known as "The French Riviera" of New Zealand, this beach city has a few islands floating around it's coast. The sands are white. The water is freezing, but beautiful to gaze at from one of the rustic beach cafes that offer local favourites such as Turkish Coffee and Kapiti ice cream. Climb to the top of the mountain and you'll see the best New Zealand has to offer. And any fans of youtube sensation LonelyGirl15 know that yep, this is the town where she's from.
You won't find it on any map because it's surrounded by 5 mountains (which it's name also means-5 mountains) near the Caucasus range. An hour away from Minsk, and way south of Moscow. My hometown requires special visa permission to visit. We've kept it secret for a reason-it's beauty is incomparable!
