From towering Pacific Northwest sea stacks to mile upon mile of mirage-like tidal flats, these 10 littoral landscapes take ocean views to a new level.

St. Pete Beach, FL

18 of 26

More old Florida than new, this lazy, low-key town on the central west coast of the Sunshine State is blissfully free of party-down revelers and velvet-rope VIP rooms. Instead, St. Pete Beach has a healthy subculture of surfers, who tend to congregate at the nearby Sunset and Upham beaches or, a bit farther north, at the Redington Beach pier. The Don CeSar, a pink lady of a resort that dominates the skyline and prime location on the sand dunes, delivers barefoot luxury with all the amenities—spa, beachfront pools, and wide-open views of the Gulf of Mexico.
