Bolifushi Island, Maldives

This gorgeous island is a short 20 minute boat ride away from the capital Male. This beautiful island is home to one of the healthiest and most abundant house-reefs in the south of the Maldives. The torquise waters make this place one of the most beautiful islands in the country. There's even some underwater shipwrecks that you can explore if you're brave enough. Did we mention that the sunsets there are to die for?

Apparently this beach, located in Waipio Valley is very difficult to get to in Hawaii. It’s only accessible through a dangerously narrow and steep road. However, once you get there, you’ll realize the amazing black volcanic sand make this well worth the treck.

Treasure Beach, Jamaica

The charming sleepy fishing villages near treasure beach will capture your heart, venture further down to the coast and you’ll see untouched rock shorelines and great opportunities to snorkel.

Where to stay: Jake's Hotel


Honopu Beach Kauai, Hawaii

Another Hawaiian beach that’s quite difficult to get to. There are no roads leading to it, the only way to get to the beach is by boat. But it is worth all the trouble.
