VIEQUES: Experience the world's clearest bioluminescent bay

When the U.S. Navy packed up and left the Puerto Rican island of Vieques in 2003, after more than 60 years, they left something behind: unspoiled nature. Land once used for bombing practice is now designated as a national wildlife refuge.

There are few towns or high-rise resorts on Vieques, so you have the sand largely to yourself on beaches like Sun Bay Beach, pictured here.

EASTER ISLAND: Ponder the handiwork of one of the most mysterious civilizations in history

No one knows exactly why nearly 900 gargantuan stone monoliths are sprinkled across Easter Island, thousands of miles off the coast of South America—and those long stone faces aren't talking.

Intended to stand atop cut-stone altars (called ahu), the moai of Easter Island average 13 feet high and weigh nearly 14 tons each.

ISCHIA: Revive with therapeutic hot springs and mud wraps

Ischia, a volcanic island of therapeutic hot springs, has a picturesque location in the Bay of Naples, where it was once protected by the craggy 15th-century  Castello Aragonese.

For thousands of years travelers have come to Ischia for massages and mud wraps, courtesy of the island's geothermal blessings, which help fill the 22 thermo-mineral pools of the beachfront Giardini di Poseidon Terme.

CHILOÉ: Experience a culture and wildlife developed in isolation
The lush Chiloé archipelago may lie off the western coast of Chile, but its history and customs bear little resemblance to those of the mainland. Local farmers have passed down a mythology of gnome- and witch-filled woodlands and ghost ships.
 (Herve Hughes/

In Chiloé's main town of Castro, residents still live in traditional palafitos (stilt houses), and there are exquisite 17th-century wooden churches built by Jesuits. These churches reflect a hybrid of European and indigenous styles that you won't find anywhere else on earth.

KEY WEST: Embrace Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville" utopia

Laid-back beachy living coupled with a flamboyant arts scene lends a one-of-a-kind appeal to the lowland island Key West (peak elevation: 18 feet).

PALM ISLANDS DUBAI: Size up the world's largest man-made archipelago

Nature creates and removes islands every day, but it took a supernatural influx of cash and credit to create what developers hope will be the permanent Palm Islands archipelago in Dubai.
 (Jochem Wijnands/Age)

Dubai envisions the Palm Islands archipelago as a Middle East playground of spas, resorts, upscale residences, villas, and superior shopping malls. Palm Jumeriah is already in place, with an Atlantis resort (and its wild water park) open and a Trump hotel that's due to open sometime in 2011.
