Criehaven Island Maine has a beach. That is located 28 nautical miles out to sea, has no public dock, has only 1 year around resident, (9 of the others are lobstermen) and has no electricity, cell service or running water. The ex-wife and I spent a week out there and never once shared the beach with anyone else...I'd call that pretty isolated (LOL)

In Florida, the area from about St. Marks to Cedar Key on the Gulf side. It's mostly swampy coastline with a handfl of beaches along the stretch of coast.

Near Port St Joe, Florida (it is between Tallahassee and Panama City)there are pockets of *beautiful* undeveloped beach, with sugar white sands and blue green water.
Even the developed areas are low key, no high rises or flashy night clubs or anything like that.

Thanks for the tip--I'll have to check it out. Sounds like my kind of area--low key and not flashy.

Eastern Nc along the outer banks and on the inner sounds is one of the least populated areas in the country you can go hours without seeing a house or person

Take a look at the Lake Superior coastline of the U.P. of Michigan. Many of the beaches are only accessible by dirt roads.

To me , Sapalo Island , off the Georgia coast , has to be one of the most amazing places I 've ever visited.The island has tabby ruins from it's plantation days, a light house , live oaks draped with Spanish moss everywhere. The beach is just beautiful , wide and is several miles long and you have it all to yourself
The only ways to the island is by ferry or private boat.
