WANT TO GET AS FAR AWAY FROM THE CANADIAN WINTER AS POSSIBLE
VISIT Medjumbe Island. Mozambique’s best-kept secret is at least 20 hours away—including a 45-minute helicopter ride—but it’s worth it. Think powdery white sand, turquoise water and stunning pink sunsets all on an archipelago so exclusive you’ll essentially have the place to yourself. STAY The privately owned island’s only resort, Anantara, has just 12 beachfront properties, each with its own pool to keep you cool 24-7. All that swimming will make you hungry, so feel free to order fresh, locally caught seafood—for dinner, lunch and (why not?) breakfast. EDITOR TIP The resort will set up a four-poster bed near the water so you can doze off to the sound of the ocean in luxury. (Consider it the ultimate napping-on-the-beach upgrade.) If you’re worried about mosquitoes enjoying a midnight snack, don’t—there’s no fresh water nearby, so there won’t be any around for miles.
