    Top 5: Europe's secret beaches

    Sssh, we are about to unveil Europe's best secret beaches! At these beaches, which are away from the normal tourist hotspots, if you are lucky enough to find a cafe you will not be over-charged just for being a tourist and you're also less likely to have to share the sands with loud music and football games.

    Here are our top 5 beaches in no particular order, as they are all equally as gorgeous

    1. Saleccia Becah, Corsica, France - Only accessible by boat, this beach boasts every aspect of a paradise retreat. The sands are a heavenly white colour and it never gets too crowded.

    2. Castelejo Beach, Algarve, Portugal - The beach is only small in size and is sheltered from the winds by the beautiful cliffs. It is a popular choice with wind surfers as the waves can be pretty decent along this stretch of coastline. There is a small car park where you can leave your Portugal hire car for a few hours and there is also a charming little restaurant.

    3. Bollullo Beach, Tenerife - The main resort closest to the beach is Puerto de la Cruz, which is one of the island's most popular tourist resorts; but don't let that put you off this beach. Be prepared for a trek, as you will need to walk through a banana plantation before you arrive on the black sands. The waves at this beach can get very high, so it is not advisable to swim in the waters.

    4. Fox Cove, Cornwall, England - Who would have thought that a UK beach would make it on to our top 5! This small hidden beach has soft golden sands and waters safe for swimming. However, the nearest car park is 5 km away, so be sure to pack your walking shoes!

    5. Aspri Limni, Crete, Greece - This beach is well and truly hidden away from the tourists of Greece, so much so that you have every chance of enjoying a day's bathing all by yourself! The beach is surrounded by rocks that have created a natural lake, making it the perfect spot to cool off and relax.

    By booking a car hire with Auto Europe you can ensure you get the most out of your holiday; you can create your own adventure and get those perfect holiday photo shots!
