Trips to the beach are standard fare for most summer travelers, but crowded stretches of sand can make vacations more of a pain than a pleasure. Some beaches offer a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle and allow visitors to escape the crowds at more popular destinations. From an isolated nature retreat nestled along Virgina’s Outer Banks to a picturesque coastal village with towering seawalls in Washington, these beaches prove that bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better—and that getting away doesn’t need to be a headache. Here are our picks for America’s best under-the-radar beaches.—​Emily Wasserman
