Phuket, Thailand

Many beaches in Southern Thailand are overrun with Western travelers, but the quiet stretch of powdery sand known as Rai Lay, on Krabi Island—only accessible by boat—is an exception. Its towering limestone cliffs and tropical foliage, and the crystal-blue waters of the Andaman Sea, make this low-key hideaway a romantic alternative to places like Phuket.
