Pirates Bay

The fact that Pirates Bay can be seen in the 1952 film Robinson Crusoe proves that the beauty of the beach is unparalleled, yet it remains constantly uncrowded. Why? The trek to the lonely beach is strenuous, and the waters are known for being unfriendly.

Pirates Bay sits in the shape of a horseshoe, which generally means the waters will be at least relatively calm, but due to its location on the northeast side of the island, the waters are rough. If you're in it for the view, the sands are pale yellow and the waters are emerald green -- nothing less than spectacular.
