Luxury spas and secluded sands in the British Virgin Islands
Pick your boat up in Tortola and head to one of the BVI’s most beautiful islands, Anegada. Walk the flat, white sands of Cow Wreck Beach, named after a ship carrying animal bones was lost in the 19th century, and bathe in clear turquoise waters. You can find privacy easily, but if you want to chat then grab a drink and a bite to eat at the local beach bar. If you have the cash to splash, then book a marina reservation at Peter Island Resort and Spa and enjoy Ayurvedic treatments to rejuvenate your muscles. Browse the BVIs >>>
Sink into the softest pink sands at Barbuda
Charter from Antigua to Barbuda and empty your mind with a stroll along the breathtaking 17-mile stretch of beach. Marvel at the unbelievably soft, bright pink sands made from shells and with such high visibility in the water, you won’t need a snorkel to see the fish. It’s likely you’ll find yourself totally alone, so make sure you pack food and water and plenty of sunscreen as there isn’t any shelter or amenities. It’s just you sky, sea and the horizon.

Float among the colorful fish in the Grenadines
Only accessible by yacht or helicopter, Saline Island is nestled between Grenada and Carriacou. With its salt lagoon, unoccupied beach house and mangroves, it’s the perfect place to stop off on your yacht charter. Make sure you grab your snorkel as the reefs are teeming with tropical fish and visit soon, as the island is up for sale – a steal at $19.5million. Charters in St Vincent and the Grenadines >>>
Slip into the slow pace of life in Tahiti
Maupiti lives in the shadow of its famous neighboring island, Bora Bora, but offers a comparatively undeveloped paradise. The pace of life here belongs to a bygone era, with low-key accommodation, few cars and fresh, tasty traditional cooking. It’s the perfect spot to hideaway and while away the time exploring the motus’ dazzling, white beaches or gently swim the glittering lagoon. Tahiti deals >>>
Find tranquility in Thailand
There are so many gorgeous beaches in Thailand to choose from, but you can avoid the crowds in high season and find your own quiet space for reflection. A great spot is Tubkaak Beach, Krabi province, home to an exclusive boutique hotel and beautiful beaches. Here you can stroll the water’s edge and look out across to the Hong Islands, with their limestone peaks jutting out of the water, and watch the amber sun go down over the horizon.
