Why: ■ This family-friendly resort (which will become all-inclusive in December 2014), offers a babysitting service and a kids' club for the youngest guests. ■ Create a hot water spa by digging a pool in the sand around low tide, and then wait for geothermal mineral water to rise to the surface. ■ Hang out, drink in hand, at Barceló's adults-only beachfront resort. And you're never far from the water since most rooms have an ocean view. Don't Miss: ■ Snorkel the mellow, crystalclear waters along Cable Beach and spot tropical fish, sea turtles, and thriving coral reefs. ■ Hot Water Beach is also known for its gentle swells, making it an ideal destination for novice and seasoned surfers alike. ■ After a night out, indulge at Barceló's U-Spa, which features massages, a hydrotherapy circuit, sauna, and more. GREECE For Sailors ★ ST. MARTIN For Explorers ★ SANTA MONICA For Boardwalkers FPO Where: ■ Kleftiko, on the island of Milos, is one of the most breathtaking destinations in the Aegean Sea. ■ Stay at Riu Palace as you discover multi-cultural St. Martin in the eastern Caribbean. ■ A Southern California icon, the Santa Monica Pier stretches a quarter-mile into the Pacific. Why: ■ Accessible only by boat, Kleftiko's volcanic rock arches and caves were once a pirate lair. Tour its hidden beaches by chartered vessel. ■ Surrounded by lush tropical hills, the 24-hour all-inclusive Riu Palace St. Martin sits on Anse Marcel's laid-back, white sand shores. ■ Since the 1920s, the pier has offered oceanfront entertainment, shopping, and recreation - not to mention stunning views of the surf and city. Don't Miss: ■ Hotel Eleni offers day-long sailing expeditions to Kleftiko for swimming, snorkeling, and a traditional fisherman's lunch. ■ Take a day trip to the lively French capital, Marigot. Or explore the island's Dutch heritage found in Philipsburg. ■ Watch the sun set over the water from atop the Pacific Wheel - the world's only solar-powered Ferris wheel. OCTOBER 2014 11
