El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

Even though Leo’s fantasy flick The Beach was filmed in Thailand, El Nido is home to the actual beach that inspired much of this famous story.

Negril, Jamaica

This quiet fishing city, situated along some of the highest cliffs in Jamaica (not that kind of high) is a great place to lay low with a red stripe and some of the most beautiful sunsets the world can offer.

If not, take a casual drive through the Blue Mountains where you can attempt to obtain the same amount of peace as the many Rastafari living there.
