USVI, St. Thomas, Magens Bay beach
Magens Bay is the most popular beach of St. Thomas island in the Caribbean (entry $5 per person). Most of the passengers from cruise liners head here, so there are usually a lot of people during the daytime. However, the coastline is very long, so you can always find a relatively secluded spot. Hurricane Irma broked most of the trees in September 2017. But thanks to the hard work of locals, now the beach again looks beautiful. / read more » /

Seychelles, Mahe, Port Launay beach
Port Launay is one of the best beaches in Mahe island. Formally, this is the coast of Constance Ephelia Resort, but access to the beach is free for all - like everywhere in the Seychelles.

Italy, Calabria, Montegiordano Marina beach
Montegiordano Marina is a beach on the Ionian Sea in Calabria, Italy. The main problem is the stony coast. But if you don't like sand, then this is rather an advantage.

But as for attractions, only the old cement factory can be mentioned (abandoned now). / read more » /

Philippines, Panglao, Doljo beach
Doljo is a beach on the extreme west point of Panglao island, Philippines. It was a secluded place, but as for now there are quite a lot of hotels and tourists, although it's not so overcrowded like Alona.

However, it is possible to get for free if walking from the north (from Libaong beach), but in this case you won't be able to use the amenities.
