TEL AVIV, ISRAEL
It's no surprise that the so-called Miami of the Middle East has raucous nightclubs and golden beaches just as brash and beautiful as those in Florida (though you don't have to be an amateur gymnast to enjoy the seafront here). There are single-sex beaches for the Orthodox, an anything-goes gay strip, even an Ibiza-cloning chill-out zone.
Rub suntanned elbows with: Young Israeli soldiers on leave, who are drawn to the throbbing nightlife nearby.
Best way to cool off: Water, water, water. That desert heat is deadly—you don't want to dehydrate on the dance floor tonight.
Beach chic: Pay homage to the homeland by picking up something girly by Yigal Azrouël before you go.
Where to bed down: The Hilton is just a minute from the beach—and stocks guest rooms with bath products from Ahava, Israel's answer to Kiehl's.
