Italy is known for amazing beaches. However, tons of tourists hanging out on some of its popular coasts can be quite annoying.

For people who want a little privacy and a journey that is off the beaten track, all they need is an adventurous spirit and maybe some hiking boots in order to reach these secret beach hideaways that will undoubtedly take their breath away.

Riserva Vendicari, Sicily

Next to Sardinia, Sicily has the most number of bays, coves, and beaches than any other region in the country. Since more beaches mean fewer crowds, people have a higher chance of finding a deserted beach here.

Situated near the underrated city of Siracusa lies an amazing mile-long national park named Riserva Vendicari that is home to towers, little coves, and only a few people.

After heading to the fabulous fish market for some food, head over to the picturesque Marzamemi nearby which has quality views of the sea and piazza-side restaurants that offers sumptuous food.

Spiaggia Bidderosa, Sardinia

Sardinia is synonymous with rugged secret beaches. Travelers who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Costa Smeralda's celebrity-packed beaches only need to travel a little further up north. Here, they can find the Bidderosa Nature Reserve, which remains to be one of the best-kept secrets of the place.

Although tourists have to pay an entrance fee and hike for about 40 minutes through a lush pine forest, they will be rewarded by stunning views of the vibrant blue waters of the Caribbean shared by the more popular del Principe and Capriccioli beaches, minus the crowd.

Capo Vaticano, Calabria

Not many people know about Calabria. However, the locals know about this area like the back of their hand. This region in Italy is known to have some of the best beaches in the country. In Capo Vaticano, people will be treated to a secluded white sand beach that lies between high cliffs after climbing the long stone steps.
This location is very suitable for picnics. Tourists who are planning to visit this beach should also check out Tropea, the region's amazing city nearby.

Spiaggia di Caminia, Calabria

Another beach that is worth checking out in Calabria is the incredible Spiaggia di Caminia. Most people forego this because of the umbrella-studded Praia a Mare, on its north-west coast.

However, this secret hideaway offers the same pristine waters with a quiet and underrated ambiance. Spiaggia di Caminia is located between two steep cliffs on the Gulf of Squillace.

Spiagga Macarro, Basilicata

Also known as the "Pearl of the Tyrrhenian," Spiagga Macarro is often overlooked by travelers in favor of the popular Amalfi Coast and other Italian beaches in the south.

Spiagga Macarro is one of the best beaches Maratea has to offer. Its one of a kind inky black sand and clear turquoise waters reminds its visitors of the striking volcanic beaches in the island of Hawaii. It is also perfect for snorkeling.
