45. St. Maarten/ St. MartinGet More Info
Why go: This half-Dutch, half-French island, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean and southeast of Puerto Rico, is more relaxed in the summer, outside of peak travel season. You’ll have fewer tourists fighting for space on the island’s 37 beaches. The same goes for the world’s steepest zipline at Rainforest Adventures and Parotte Ville, where you can spot up to 170 species of tropical birds.
Where to stay: Choose from one of the all-inclusive Sonesta Resorts: Sonesta Ocean Point Resort is a luxury, adults-only, all-inclusive property, while Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, Casino & Spa is a family-friendly, all-inclusive hotel. Both overlook Maho Bay, where planes fly thrillingly close to the beach as they land at Princess Juliana International Airport.
