The New Côte d’Azur: Cornwall, England

A sun-starred crowd heads to Britain’s southwest coast for its golden sands and celebrity-chef-owned restaurants. Stay at the Scarlet Hotel (doubles from $423), an eco-lodge and spa where all 37 rooms have cliff-edge hot tubs. For local steamed mussels, head to BBC chef Rick Stein’s Cornish Arms pub (dinner for two $63).

The New Capri: Valletta, Malta

The UNESCO World Heritage site is attracting globe-trotters with updated hotels, cafés, and wine bars. The Maison La Vallette (doubles from $114) has limestone walls and Alessi furnishings, while Caffé Cordina (lunch for two $68) serves sweet treats like honey rings made with black treacle syrup.

The New Santorini: Korčula, Croatia

In a region known for its wild Adriatic scenery and Venetian Renaissance architecture, travelers are flocking to Lešić Dimitri Palace (doubles from $338), housed in a historic bishop’s palace, with six individually designed suites. At the property’s bar, LD, sample Croatia’s renowned wines, including the citrusy Grk.
