Your go-to spots in the Caribbean, the South of France, and the Greek islands are pretty amazing. They have relaxing hotels, waterfront restaurants, and, most importantly, gorgeous beaches. For spring break this year, you want to mix things up, though. Let’s keep the chill vibe and the stunning views, but add a new destination to the mix. Here are four unexpected locations to consider before you book your flight.
Marigot: Swap the big islands in the Caribbean for a little airport, mountains, rainforests, waterfalls, rare flowers, and a hillside beach resort on Dominica.
Biodola: Skip Capri and Sardinia to have the beaches, the vineyards, the historic sites, and a national park practically to yourself on the Tuscan Archipelago.
Vlorë: Trade the French Riviera for empty seafood restaurants, low prices, a pool or an entire beach all to yourself, and a cliffside hotel in Albania.
Ponta do Sol: Find gorgeous sunsets, rocky cliffs, pebbly beaches, a glass-fronted restaurant, and a design hotel on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.
