New hotels and tours, emerging food scenes, and special events make these places the hottest travel destinations in 2014.

Meads Bay, Anguilla

13 of 26

Facing west, 1 1/2-mile-long Meads Bay is ringed by some of the island’s best casual restaurants. Simply brush the sand from your bare feet before entering Straw Hat to order the grilled local crawfish with sweet plantains. On a panoramic bluff above the bay, Malliouhana is getting a glamorous top-to-bottom makeover from Auberge Resorts, with a new sunset bar, tiered pool, and intimate spa; the 55-room classic reopens this spring. We’ll see if it lures stars away from the nearby Viceroy, a high-profile hit with its Kelly Wearstler–designed rooms. —Shane Mitchell
