The Captivating Coastline

The W Vieques, Puerto Rico
There is something wonderful about being on the coast.  Waves crashing up against the rocks or onto the sand in a rhythmic motion while ocean breezes drift ashore.  Views that seem to be never ending, revealing what looks like the water kissing the sky.  Whether the coast is in a tropical climate or a cooler more temperate one, the shoreline still inspires and seduces people.  Travel to one of these coastal wonders and see if you experience the magic that many find when visiting a seaside destination.  

The Vancouver Skyline featuring The Four Seasons
The Inside passage runs between Washington and Alaska, and although it is definitely not a tropical locale, its magnificent views make up for any inclement weather.  Shorelines boast evergreen trees and wildlife while the waterways play home to whales, orcas, seals and dolphins.  The majestic snow-capped mountains sparkle in the sunlight and if you're truly lucky you might catch a glimpse of a momma bear playing with her cubs at the waters edge.  To get the best views of the passage you need to head out on boat, but you might choose to stay in Vancouver, British Columbia and find an excursion from there.  There are many fantastic hotels in Vancouver including Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver.  Here you will find a pristine hotel just a block from the city's renowned shopping district as well as minutes form the Granville Island Market.  Stay here and experience the global flavors offered at the restaurant and lounge or hit the spa for a soothing massage.  This beautiful coastline will captivate all who visit.  

Hospitable Honolulu
Oahu is another inspirational coastline and this one happens to provide pretty amazing weather along with its ravishing views.  This Hawaiian island is a favorite for its ability to combine big city style and tropical island charm, all in one location.  Visit and find the perfect beaches to lounge on or head to the big city of Honolulu and experience a vibrant nightlife.  The friendly people and the US address make this trip easy and exotic all in one.  Stay at any of the Best hotels in Honolulu one of which is the chic and trendy The Modern Honolulu.  This high style hotel is a leader in luxury with a barefoot attitude.  Home to the Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto's new restaurant, the food here will inspire you.  Sit by the pool and enjoy a lovely cocktail or relax in the elegant hotel spa.  Whatever you do here, The Modern Honolulu will make sure you are thrilled with your stay.  Oahu is the perfect spot for a remarkable coastal visit.  

Mosquito Bay on Vieques Island, Puerto Rico
Our last coastal retreat is another exotic US locale, Mosquito Bay in wonderful Puerto Rico.  This bay is located on the small island of Vieques just east of the main island of Puerto Rico.  What is so amazing about this stretch of shore is that the waters off the coast are one of the world's last remaining bio luminescent bays. Visit at night and take in the breathtaking beauty of dinoflagellates that glow a blue-green color when agitated.  Similar to the magic of a firefly, these tiny creatures light up the waters and are sure to provide you with an unforgettable experience and some remarkable pictures.  Although there are many amazing hotels on the main island, WhatAHotel! also presents the captivating W Retreat and Spa Vieques.  Here the shoreline offers up secluded white beaches and charming island style.  The W Retreat and Spa Vieques allows you close proximity to Mosquito Bay as well as the nearby mountains so a grand excursion is easy to enjoy.  Tantalize your taste-buds at chef Alain Ducasse's acclaimed restaurant or spend some time at the Chakra Spa.  The W welcomes you to enjoy the best this island has to offer.  

The Modern Honolulu
Heading to the coast is something that many find to be an addictive experience.  Either they load up the car and head out or book that flight and pack their bags, the world is full of awe-inspiring shorelines that beckon us toward them.  Fall in love with the sights, the sounds and the feelings that culminate when you visit the place where the ocean meets the shore.  Find your favorite coast and explore all of the wonders that are found during your time by the sea.
