Escape Europe’s summer crowds at these secret beaches, where you can lounge in peace.

Ransvik, Skåne, Sweden

5 of 11

Rocky cliffs and gnarled oak trees ring one of the more secluded stone beaches on the Kullaberg nature reserve in southern Sweden, which requires a brisk hike for access. You won’t be totally alone, but the crowds are nothing like they were at the turn of the century, when Ransvik was famously the first co-ed beach in Europe. Fifteen minutes to the south, in the sweet village of Arild, you’ll find the Strand, a chic B&B. Rooms in the main building, dating from 1904, have the best sea views. strand-arild.se
