That doesn’t mean, however, that you should cross Hawaii off the list. As touristy as it can be, there are, in fact, pockets of solitude that the out-of-state visitors haven’t quite gotten to yet. The entire island of Lanai is still relatively pristine and untouched; the smallest of the archipelago, it only has 3,000 inhabitants and one town that lacks both traffic and even stoplights. With so many beaches, you’re also bound to find a few on the island that are pretty secluded, and certain towns are typically overlooked or just driven through by visitors. So if you’re looking for a Hawaiian vacation with all the beauty of the island and none of the crowds, check out these gorgeous Hawaiian spots that haven’t been overrun by tourists — yet.


Spain is experiencing a huge boom in tourism, particularly in Barcelona. The once-edgy and fashionable La Rambla, the city's main pedestrian thoroughfare, is now populated with souvenir shops, fast food chains and vast numbers of people.

The nearby Mercat de la Boqueria, which was the go-to market for a wide variety of ingredients and produce, is filled with tourists. And the Sagrada Familia and other Gaudi architectural masterpieces have long lines. Just like Disneyland.

And some locals are unhappy. During the peak visitor season in July, activists hijacked tour buses with anti-tourism signs and smoke flares. A plan to reclaim La Rambla for the locals is in motion, and officials have started to crackdown on illegal vacation rentals on Airbnb.
