Isla Carnero, Panama – The Bocas de Toro archipelago is one of the most untouched Caribbean destinations. You can go to the Kuna Islands or the hotels and restaurants on Colon Island. But if you want peace and quiet you can take a boat ride to Carnero Island where you’ll find a lush island with affordable cottages on the waterfront.
Folegandros, Greece – A traveler said about Folegandros “is little more than a small rock floating peacefully in the Aegean,” But that’s the entire purpose of the island. If you want the big nightclubs and luxurious villas go to neighboring Santorini but if you wish is to enjoy the Greek island life with only the sea, sky and your clifftop cottage, Folegandros is the place for you.
Erg Chegaga, Morroco – If you travel to Morocco, spending a night in the desert is a must, this has turned tourist spots like Merzouga more like theme parks instead of a real getaways. If you truly want to experience the desert you should visit the dunes of Erg Chegaga in the southwestern part of the country. You can spend various nights here camped in authentic Bedouin tents giving you incredible views of the desert. And if you go here during the off-season you will have this all for yourself.
Nuuk, Greenland – There aren’t many places on the planet as unique as Greenland. Yet this place is not visited often. You can spend the days cramponing around thousand-year-old glaciers and kayak around giant icebergs in the many lagoons. This all pales in comparison to the real magic of Greenland which is sitting at night and enjoying the aurora borealis above your traditional polar tent.
Lofoten Islands, Norway – The Lofoten Islands are situated quite deep into the arctic circle and their village are voted often as one of the most beautiful places in Norway. Even though now tourism is the area’s main activity, the fishing huts on the water offer a peaceful retreat to enjoy the sights and the famous Northern Lights.
Lake Nicaragua, Nicaragua – This lake has always attracted a lot of people through history. Even though a lot of people pass through it is a perfect place to disappear. Being Central America’s largest lake, it has miles and miles of underdeveloped shoreline with many affordable cabins that afford viewers with a very Caribbean experience with pretty small prices.
Lake O’Hara, Canada – One of the best quiet mountain retreats, Lake O’Hara in the Canadian Rockies is perfect for those seeking quiet and peace. The lake benefits a lot from the restricted car traffic ( only way to it is buses or hiking ). This has made the lake one of the most pristine and preserved natural wonders on the mountains. While most people go to the lake on one-day trips the best way to spend time there is to reserve one of the many lakeside cabins.
Cabanes als Arbres, Spain – The lush forests around Girona, Spain contain one of the most unique cabins in Europe. The Cabanes als Arbres are rustic tree houses made specifically for people that want to go off grid. There is no electricity, internet or cell phone coverage, the only thing you will do is enjoy the pure experience of being suspended in the trees and the peaceful sounds of nature.
Surf Shacks at Muizenberg Beach, South Africa – These Shacks have been legendary among the international surfing community. While most of these cabins are only for show today there are many peaceful cottages all around the Cape Town suburb of Muizenberg.
Togean Island Retreat – Indonesia – Some island resorts exists just for those people that want to go the extra mile. One of these is the Togean Island Retreat in Indonesia. There are no high end pools or 3 course dinners here, just your basic wooden hut on the water equipped with a hammock and a deck. What else do you need to enjoy nature?
