1. Railay Beach | Krabi, Thailand
A few spa hotels have tucked themselves among the palm forests of Krabi, but they haven't spoiled the charm of Railay Beach – flashier crowds prefer Phuket anyway. The stalactite-dripping limestone cliffs that bookend Railay’s wisp of a beach make it inaccessible by road, and the shallow bay precludes anything larger than a longtail boat from coming in. Hire one from nearby Ao Nang for next to nothing, then get thee to a hammock.
