Finding Something?

You Should Explore These Hidden Beaches, Now! Thank Us Later!

In this day and age, do secret beaches still remain secret?

In a world of Google Maps and GPS, it seems like the word “secret” might just be defined simply as ‘the ultimate form of isolation’: that hidden cove is not exactly impossible to find, but is just waiting to be discovered by a curious internet-dweller perennially trusting Google Maps.

The experience of frolicking in that secret beach, in that hidden cove remains untainted, though. Being there still paints a picture of you alone in a secluded, sandy paradise with jewel-toned seas as far as the eyes can see.

You surely must have your gold list. Here’s ours!


Anse La Liberte, The Seychelles

anse-la-liberte

Located on the southwestern tip of the Seychelles’ Mahé Island, Anse La Liberte has undisturbed views of the southern Indian Ocean, with the coasts of Kenya, Tanzania, and Somalia lying somewhere along the deep blue horizon.

Access: Access Anse La Liberte through the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles


Anse Soleil, The Seychelles

anse-soleil

Not far from Anse La Liberte is a small cove called Anse Soleil, enclosed on one side and backdropped by beautiful pine, almond and coconut trees on the other. This short stretch of powdery, white sand is one of Mahé Island’s lesser known coves.

Access: Anse Soleil can be reached by following the Anse Soleil Road


Pamalican Island, The Philippines

pamalican-island

Known as one of the most exclusive islands in the world, home to only 40 casitas, Pamalican Island has an air of exclusivity unique to the Aman resorts. Walking along the shores of the 50-hectare island gives you the feeling of having the island all to yourself.

Access: Access the Pamalican Island beaches through Aman Resorts’ Amanpulo


Sunset Beach, The Seychelles

sunset-beach

In Glacis, a town on the northwestern coast of Mahé, you’ll find the Sunset Beach. This is considered as one of the southern Indian Ocean’s most remote beaches. It can only be reached by taking a path from the main road. The grueling walk would be worth it, ‘cause as the name suggests, the sunsets here is nothing else but ethereal.

Access: A discreet path from North Coast Road leads to the Sunset Beach.


Tavajun Bay, Malaysia

tavajun-bay

Tavajun Bay’s white sands and bouldered shores is merely a 10-minute boat ride from Gaya Island Resort’s jetty. Secluded from the rest of the island by lush greenery, one can enjoy a relaxing nap on the hammocks by the low-lying trees, after getting acquainted with its notorious resident: the friendly wild boar!

Access: Access Tavajun Bay through the Gaya Island Resort



Zighy Bay, Oman

zighy-bay

Surrounded by the rough terrain of the Hajar Mountain Range, Zighy Bay is tucked away in the unspoiled area of Oman’s northern Musandam Governorate. Here, you can watch the Gulf of Oman meet the desert.

Access: Access the Zighy Bay beaches through the Six Senses Zighy Bay


Secret beaches are all the rage. Where’s your favorite?

      That’s an amazing way to put it – thanks for the compliment! We’ve heard a great deal about Huvafen Fushi and Maalifushi. Where in Maldives do you suggest we head to?
