Some of the most paradisiacal beaches and coves on the planet are found in the Caribbean Sea- Some of whose lesser-known and spectacular corners are only accessible by boat, plane or on foot… With tens of thousands of kilometers of coastline, in the Caribbean there are some one of the most spectacular seaside areas in the world. And some of them offer an additional charm: they include almost secret places that can only be reached on board a boat. Users of Samboat, a portal specializing in boat rentals online, between individuals and professionals, have selected the most paradisiacal beaches in the Caribbean Sea at the request of EFE. In the selection are some from Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the British Virgin Islands. All the beaches included in this selection have difficult access by land or they do not. For this reason, they can be considered as secret destinations that can be reached by boat, explain Laurent Calando and Nicolas Cargou, founding partners of SamBoat.

Two beaches in Ilha Grande (Brazil)

Perhaps it is thanks to all this that she has managed to remain a virgin. In addition, its geography is home to beautiful tropical beaches and the Atlantic jungle that forms a protected area as a state park.

Lopes Mendes Beach

The sea there is light blue in some parts and green in others, but always transparent. With big waves, it is ideal for surfing because the beach remains shallow for tens of meters, which gives the waves a good ride. They are warm waters that allow you to enjoy the sea for hours.


Caxadaco Beach
