From Hawaii ($98 a night) to Italy ($183 a night), 27 perfect sandy escapes that won’t break the bank.

Puako Bed & Breakfast Big Island, Hawaii

5 of 28

Price: $98

WHAT IT'S LIKE: Tucked among the pricey resorts of Hawaii's southern Kohala Coast is one of the big island's best-kept secrets: a tiny village with access to prime snorkeling and surfing beaches. Puako Bed & Breakfast is as low-key as its location; host and hula performer-instructor Punahele Andrade has outfitted the four guest rooms withtropical furniture and bright Hawaiian quilts. After a breakfast of Belgian waffles, Hawaiian sweet bread, and Kona coffee, the rugged black-lava and white-coral beach beckons. For pristine, sandier stretches, head to nearby Beach 69, in the Hapuna Beach State Park.

WHAT TO DO: You can take a horseback tour of the 150,000-acre Parker Ranch, 20 miles away. —David A. Keeps
