A Beach to Call Your Own

While some folks love the hustle and bustle of a crowded beach, there are just as many travellers who seek solitude. They want a break from noise, activities and – well, frankly – other people. If you’re looking for a slice of solitude, try these beaches on for size. Pictured above: A stretch of beach at Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.

The Jetty at Pebbles Beach. Located just south of Carlisle Bay and near the Hilton Barbados, Pebbles Beach is another of the idyllic white sand beaches that Barbados is known for. The beach often attracts a variety of marine animals and it's not uncommon to see a sea turtle or two playing in the waters. Photo courtesy The Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association.
