Kaikias, Turkey

35 of 37

With its Ottoman-Greek whitewashed houses clustered around the harbor and its lack of tourism, Bozcaada, one of Turkey’s two Aegean islands, feels like an insider’s secret. Savvy travelers who make it here know to stay at the beachfront Kaikias Hotel, a historic Greek building with 22 rustic-chic rooms—some whitewashed, others more refined with antiques--in the shadow of a Byzantine fortress.

Cost: From $156

Don’t Miss: Bozcaada Island’s 2,000-year-old wine-making tradition is experiencing a renaissance, and at the Corvus winery, former architect Resit Soley is producing the country’s most sought-after bottles.
