When you want to get away from it all, a beach destination can be a perfect vacation idea. Many beaches have turned into crowded tourist traps. More people traveling and flocking to popular beach spots have made these vacations less than ideal. Luckily, there are still a few beach spots that are known for being low-key and free of the big crowds. Here are some top recommendations.

St. John, USVI

The U.S. Virgin Islands feature crystal clear blue waters, calm waves, and soft sand. There are three islands in this chain, but the least crowded and most casual one is St. John. St. John is located a ferry boat ride away from busier St. Thomas and an airport. Once you arrive at St. Joh, you can explore the quiet beaches, snorkel, kayak, or just relax in the stunning water.

Los Cabos, Mexico

The next spot to check out if you want a low-key vacation is Los Cabos in Mexico. Los Cabos is situated on the southern edge of the Baja California peninsula. It has stunning beach resorts, including Cabo San Lucas, and plenty of things to do. If you want to plan a vacation to this incredible destination, book a villa known for luxury real estate Cabo to get the best experience.

Assateague Island, Maryland

Maryland is also home to a low-key beach spot that is right next door to crowded Ocean City. A few miles from the busy boardwalk and restaurants of Ocean City is Assateague Island. This island is a protected area that is home to a herd of wild ponies. Beach-goers can camp, swim, surf, and fish on Assateague and get a more natural experience.

Ocracoke Island, North Carolina

Another beach destination on the Atlantic is also more low-key due to the difficulty of getting there. Ocracoke Island in North Carolina is a little harder to reach than the busier beaches in the Outer Banks. To get to Ocracoke, you’ll need to board the car ferry and cross the sound. You can also board a private plane for a faster trip. The beaches and atmosphere are much slower in this part of the south.

Dry Tortugas, Florida

Florida is known for its beautiful beaches on the gulf and ocean. If you want a quiet version of Florida, consider going further south to Dry Tortugas. This low-key beach spot is near the Florida Keys and features solitude and stunning scenery. The beach is also a protected park and offers snorkeling, fishing, scuba diving, and boating.

Tybee Island, Georgia

Finally, be sure to add Tybee Island, Georgia to your list of quiet beaches to visit. Tybee Island is about 20 minutes away from Savannah. Besides pristine beaches, visitors can also enjoy the history of the island, with Civil War sites and an iconic lighthouse.

Enjoying a soothing beach is something that you can count on if you add one of these destinations to your bucket list. Instead of hearing crowds of partiers, loud children, and unruly adults, these spots offer tranquility, peace, and quiet.
