Plum Island, Massachusetts

7 of 25

Unlike Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, this 11-mile-long barrier isle off the state’s North Shore has remained relatively undiscovered. Which is why the opening of Blue, the Inn on the Beach (doubles from $345, including breakfast) two years ago was a pleasant surprise. Hotels like the Delano, on South Beach, served as the inspiration for Blue, with its modern aesthetic. The eight suites and six cottages are connected by mosaic-tiled walkways, while the stark white-on-white rooms have touches of blue throughout—a throw, a vase, wineglasses, flip-flops.

Don’t Miss: Scoping out the marshes and thickets of the island’s 4,600-acre wildlife refuge with one of the hotel’s bicycles.
