This tiny island off of the Amalfi Coast is a jet-set favorite for its luxurious resorts, boutiques, flower-lined paths, and cliff-top restaurants serving two of its famous creations—Caprese salad and Limoncello liqueur. One caveat: beaches here are rocky, meaning you’ll have to brave pebbles to go for a swim. One of the most scenic spots is down a few hundred stairs next to Da Luigi at the base of Il Faraglioni rocks.
Where to Stay: J.K. Place, where the design is nautical with a twist: round porthole-style interior windows, sea-blue walls, crisp white sofas, imitation Greek statues, and houndstooth-print stools.
