As much as we love the bustling beaches of the South, the likes of South Carolina’s Hilton Head, Florida’s Seaside, and Georgia’s St. Simons Island, sometimes we just want to kick it and relax. There’s something refreshing about picking a spot where the beaches aren’t quite so crowded, the seafood is freshly caught as a rule, and those old beach chairs you’re sitting on might be just a little bit rusty. Luckily, the South is full of these under-the-radar gems. Like every seashell picked up on your lazy walk down the shoreline, every Southern beach is a little bit different—and has something that makes it special. From the powdery white sand of the Panhandle to the cerulean water of the Keys, the barrier islands of the Outer Banks to the sea islands of Georgia, every Southern coastline has something that keeps us coming back for more. For those looking for a beach with off-the-beaten-path appeal, here are the South’s most secluded beaches.
