The world's most stunning seaside escapes are popping up in three epicenters of chic: California, the Caribbean, and the Mediterranean. Ogle away.
Maundays Bay, Anguilla
It was spectacular before the storm: a strand of stark-white villas with Greco-Moorish domes and archways keeping chic company with the aquamarine shimmer of Maundays Bay. But when the eyewall of Hurricane Irma savaged and swamped Anguilla in late 2017, the damage to this star-studded sanctuary forced a reboot. And what a spectacular reboot it has been. Helmed by U.S.-based designer Lauren Rottet's studio and debuting late last year, Belmond Cap Juluca has doubled down on exterior enchantments (including the stunning new Arawak Spa and a sea-edge infinity pool tiled to Moorish perfection) and interior refinements in its 66 rooms and 42 suites, including bold new textiles in botanical hues and lush little courtyards reached via expansive baths. Rates start at $725; belmond.com.

During World War II, the Soviet Union lost 8 MILLION men fighting the Germans and winning the war for us. Our losses, in both Europe and the Pacific, were less than 400,000. Do the math and tell me that it wasn't a "good idea" for FDR to ally us with the Soviets.
