Photographer Adam Allegro offers up his favorite shorelines.

Naples
Often overshadowed by Rome, Tuscany, and Venice, Naples is an Italian gem overflowing with culture and history. Widely considered the birthplace of pizza, the city has countless piazzas to stroll through and castles to explore. The world famous Amalfi Coast is a short drive away, where rich pastas and local wines await.

Koh Tao
An emerging island paradise in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Tao is quickly becoming a top destination in Southeast Asia. The coastline offers pristine waters for SCUBA Diving and jagged terrain for rock climbing, while local Muay Thai boxing and some of the best nightlife in the region prove worthy of coming ashore.

Roatan
Just off the coast of Honduras, Roatan and sister island Utila are closely kept secrets. Although Honduras is not often associated with tourism, the islands are a traveler’s paradise. Expect to snorkel with sting rays and whale sharks, explore the island on motorbikes, and soak up the sun on one of the many beaches.

The Gili Islands
Tucked away in the waters of Indonesia, the Gili Islands hide in the shadows between Lombok and Bali. With varying degrees of tourism and solitude, they provide something for everyone. Gili Trawangan is an up and coming tourist destination, while Gili Meno is undeveloped and reminiscent of a Robinson Crusoe adventure. Gili Air is somewhere in the middle, and has some of the best diving in Indonesia.

Malibu
Set on twenty-seven miles of California coast, Malibu boasts beautiful sunsets, chic restaurants, and a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Favorite attractions include the Getty Villa, El Matador State Beach, Point Dume, and the iconic Malibu Pier.
