These beaches are where someone can really go to get away from everything but the sun, piña coladas and swimwear. They may be the most hidden and private beaches, but it’s pretty hard to feel lonely on the corner of the sea, sand and sky while on a retreat in Cabo San Lucas. These beaches are the kinds that come out in Corona commercials, but they're actually real.
The romance of a secluded beach has everything to do with the view. What you see: Blue water lapping against clean sand and rolling back into an expanse stretching toward the horizon. What you don't see: Blocks of condos full of beet-red men in tank tops ready to wheel their coolers below the high tide line. The key is to find one of those beaches you see in Corona commercials and then get rid of the people you see in those Corona commercials.
Unfortunately, finding a secluded beach is not easy. Beaches are a huge draw all over the world; as such, it can often seem like every square meter of sand has been covered in a cartoon-themed towel. This is, fortunately, not the case thanks to an elite core of pristine beaches that have remained uncrowded for the simple reason that -- for a wide variety of reasons -- they are quite difficult to get to.
