The end of summer is here, which means it’s time to squeeze in at least one more luxurious day relaxing in the sand, breathing in the fresh air, and topping off your tan while you still have the sun on your side. Just beware! As you start to plan one last epic beach trip (complete with a well-packed picnic, a few summer reads and your favorite summer anthem blasting away), we’re betting there are plenty of other sun-worshippers who are doing the exact same thing. And when you have to fight for a spot to lay out your towel amongst the hundreds of other last-minute beachgoers, that much-anticipated trip to the beach totally loses all of its charm.

Not to worry! Some of America’s best beaches are also its most hidden. We’ve rounded up 10 completely under-the-radar hot spots for you to try out as you get ready to seize what's left of summer. With the long Labor Day weekend ahead of us, now is the perfect time to check out these hidden beach gems.
