Travel+Leisure: (At Least) 27 Affordable Beach Resorts

Anne here. It’s been decades since I stayed at Kennebunkport’s Breakwater Inn & Spa, last stop on my years’ ago honeymoon.

Breakwater Inn, Kennebunkport, MaineBreakwater Inn is one of 27 Affordable Beach Resorts featured last spring by Travel+Leisure, appearing in our new soon-to-open Adventure Channel. There’s nothing like an Adirondack Chair to bring us comfort in these very troubling times.

True or not, Kennebuckport is the kind of place where one feels safe and cozy in these troubled times.

Hotel des sables blancs (Hotel of white beaches)Many of us remain Adventurers at heart, refusing to give up our global wanderlust and love of exotic places and people. For you, Travel+Leisure takes you to Les Sables Blancs, Les Glénans, an uninhabited archipelago called “the Tahiti of Brittany.” The hotel arranges day trips by boat to its largest island, which has a diving school and several pristine beaches.

Alila Manggis, luxury resort in East BaliIf Bali is in your blood, as it’s been in mine, check into the Alila Manggis for about $230 a night. To keep your adrenalin racing, you’re sitting next to an active volcano in one of 56 rooms, all facing the sea. Not to worry, you can calm yourself taking a free yoga class in the garden.

Travel+Leisure focuses on the most exclusive to the affordable vacation, which is exactly the mindset most of us are in these days, with a primary desire for memorable but budget-minded experiences.
