There is no danger of running into huge tourist crowds as this island is not the most visited thus making it perfect for relaxation and de-stressing. 

Whitehaven Beach On Whitsunday Island

Zanzibar, Tanzania 

The fact that 50 islands make up this East African archipelago, is enough to tell you there will be plenty of spots to relax and escape from the daily hustle and bustle. From beautiful white sand beaches to warm waters you will find that Zanzibar truly has a lot to offer.
