Well, you’ll find secluded beaches in some of the Caribbean Islands including Los Roques (Venezuela), St. Martin, and Isla de Providencia in Colombia. However, Thailand has more. You might want to spend some time on Koh Kood, which is one of “Thailand’s last unspoiled islands” according to the Guardian.  The island is located in the Gulf of Thailand. The Travel Channel one time referred to the Koh Lao Liang island, located on the Andaman side, as one of Thailand’s “best-kept secrets.” These are just some of the secluded islands in Thailand.

Travelers can always have parties on the beach on islands such as Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, St. Martin, Aruba, the Jamaican town of Negril and Trinidad.
