We asked Virtuoso travel advisors…What’s your favorite secret beach destination?

“Stay at Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos, home to some of the best sugar-sand beaches in the world. Resort staff will take you by boat to a deserted strip of beach with a picnic basket and an umbrella. Or try the Bill & Coo Mykonos, which offers a lesser-known beach – plus a foodie and party scene – at a super-cool property.” – Peter Lloyd, Atlanta

Hotel Esencia is one of my favorite beach destinations. It’s still very much under the radar and a favorite for celebrities and those in the know. This former home of an Italian duchess sits on one of the prettiest beaches on the Riviera Maya. It’s perfect for those who want a taste of Tulum without sacrificing luxury.” – Erina Pindar Chamberlain, New York City

“Oman’s Six Senses Zighy Bay, a two-hour drive from Dubai, offers some amazing arrival options: via four-wheel drive from a hill overlooking the bay, a speedboat, or even a paraglider. You have the Hajar Mountains on one side and a private beach on the other for snorkeling, scuba diving, and more.” – Diana Moon, Chattanooga, Tennessee
