An hour hike in the jungles from Agonda or a boat trip from Palolem Beach, will drop you straight to the Butterfly Island in South Goa.

Though the beach doesn't have any facility, it is still loved by the relax minds since it is one of the undiscovered and unexplored beaches of Goa! It is a joke that you can go nude here till one of the tourist spots you. Once in a while, people even conduct rave parties here.

Guhagar Beach, Ratnagiri

Roughly 40 km from Chiplun, Guhagar Beach is one among the cleanest and most secluded beaches in the Konkan region of Maharashtra. Positioned in between the Arabian Sea and Sahayadri mountain range, the 6 km long beach with white sand and coconut trees is an idyllic beach to watch the sunset from the shore. A tropical paradise, it is quite famous among the hikers and pilgrims who come to visit the ancient Shiva temple - Vyadeshwar. You can also indulge in various water sport activities here. Moreover, the resorts nearby serve you the best Konkani cuisine to munch on!

Situated in the Uttara Kannada region of Karnataka, the beach is quite a famous location for the hippies, trekkers and backpackers.To reach this beautiful beach, you will have to trek down from Om beach on the rocks. However, once you are there its all about you and the serene nature. You can either relax on the sandy shore or the available shacks. Nothing can beat the scenic sunset which you can witness from Kudle beach in Gokarna.

Tranquebar, Tamil Nadu

Once a Danish Colony, Tranquebar or Tharangambadi (Town of the singing wave) on the Coromandel Coast is a virgin beach hardly 15 km from Karaikal district of Pondicherry. A historical place, you will witness 400 year old Danish fort along with many Danish architecture within the beach premises. At dawn and dusk, Bay of Bengal simply looks dazzling from here.

Well, the only way to reach this place is wooden canoes and boats of the local people.Untouched by the tourist crowd, the beach is an ideal place for travelers looking for relaxation in peaceful and serene environment.
