1. TODOS SANTOS, BAJA, MEXICO
Framed by desert coastline and the deep blue Pacific Ocean, Baja is as stunning as it is chilled out. A sleek one-piece, pops of color, and rustic accessories—think wicker and raffia—will be right at home at the buzzy new Hotel San Cristóbal.
2. AMALFI COAST, ITALY
Your friends will be fuming with jealousy when you post from the terrace of the iconic Il San Pietro di Positano as you enjoy the most delicious and scenic aperitif in the world. Wearing a Missoni midi dress, fierce Dior cateye sunnies, and a hat with flair—who can blame them?
3. MALIBU, CALIFORNIA
Whether it’s a staycation or a vacation, just outside L.A., Malibu has 27 miles of scenic beauty to explore. Stop at Little Beach House Malibu for sundowners on the terrace. Platform espadrilles, cropped denim, and a one piece will work well from DTLA to the coast.
For a dose of a pristine beach (many boast pink sands) and palm-lined pool without the long haul flight, Bermuda is your answer. It also has plenty of Colonial architecture and culture to absorb, including the picturesque town of St. George’s, the oldest English town in the New World. Embrace the old world glamor in a retro-inspired one piece and feminine midi-skirt.
5. NORTH FORK, NEW YORK
For your next girls’ weekend, consider heading east to the vineyard-surrounded, very chill area of Greenport in the North Fork. The Sound View hotel opened in May and sits on a private beach overlooking the Long Island Sound. You and the girls will love lounging on the deck in bikinis and cut-offs sipping rosé you grabbed on a wine tour that morning.
Nestled in the Indian Ocean, the island of Mauritius has a compelling mix of picture-perfect beaches, Hindu temples, nature reserves, and colonial architecture. There’s many luxurious, stunning hotels to choose from, like the Prince Maurice, which offer so many amenities that all you’ll need to get through the day is a chic sarong and a good book.
