If you are someone who likes to avoid crowds and find places where you can relax and enjoy some peace and quiet, you are in luck. Today at Bravofly, we have compiled a list of countries where you can jet off to – the 10 countries least visited by tourists:

1. Mauritania

This country which is situated in Northeast Africa is famous for its vast deserts, and it receives 29,000 visitors each year. Amongst the most significant tourist attractions is the Chinguetti Mosque, Nouakchott (Fish Market), and the Terjit Oasis.

2. The Union of the Comoros

Is a country made up of three islands which lie in Southeast Africa, at the northern end of the Mozambique Channel in the Indian Ocean, between northern Madagascar and northern Mozambique. It is a Muslim country with some cultural restrictions but, nevertheless, receives 15,000 tourists each year.

3. São Tomé and Príncipe

This African country is made up of various islands situated in the Gulf of Guinea. It receives 12,000 visitors each year, a low number, due to a lack of direct flights. These islands combine beaches and mountains, and the attractions which stand out most are: the old cocoa plantations, Obo Natural park, and the Boca do Inferno.

4. Afghanistan

The fact that it has resembled a military conflict zone undoubtedly has meant it is not the most popular of destinations. It annually receives 17,500 travellers who go on to enjoy places such as the city of Kabul, the Citadel of Herat, and the Blue Mosque.

5. Moldova

Is a country that is located between Romania and Ukraine, and is the least-visited territory in Europe, with only 11,000 tourists each year. Nevertheless, we recommend visiting the Pădurea Domnească, Chisináu Water Tower, and the St. Teodora de la Sihla Church.

6. Kiribati

Is an archipelago and island nation located in the central-west area of the Pacific Ocean, northeast of Australia. It is difficult to access which is why it only receives 4,700 visitors each year. It has 33 atolls but they are so far from one another that you need to catch a plane to travel between them.

7. Turkmenistan

Located in central Asia, this country receives 7,000 visitors each year. Without a doubt, its major attraction is the Karakum Desert, where the “Door to Hell” is found, an enormous crater, 60 metres wide and 20 metres deep, that emits natural gas and has been burning since 1971.

8. Marshall Islands

This is an island country located in the Pacific Ocean, in the larger island group of Micronesia, which was discovered by the Spanish explorer Alonso de Salazar in 1526. Today, only one airline flies there, which explains its low number of 6,500 visitors each year, though its atolls are considered to be some of the best diving spots in the world.

9. Equatorial Guinea

Is a central African country and old Spanish colony which explains the fact that one of its official languages is Spanish. It currently receives 6,000 visitors each year, largely due to the country’s entry policy. Here at Bravofly, we recommend you visit the Monte Alén National Park, the Malabo Cathedral, and also the beaches at Malabo.

10. Tuvalu

Formerly known as the Ellice Islands, it is a Polynesian island nation, located in the Pacific Ocean, approximately halfway between Hawaii and Australia. It currently only receives 1,200 tourists each year, because you have to take a private jet from Fiji to get there. Due to the rising level of the sea, it is believed that Tuvalu will end up disappearing, so get there quick.
