Miami Nice

A private island spa just minutes from South Beach


In the time it takes to get to East Hampton in bad traffic, you can fly to Miami. But if the South Beach crowds make you crabby, seven and a half minutes away by ferry sits Fisher Island, home to the Fisher Island Club, where peacocks run wild, electric golf carts are the mode of transport, and the white-sand beaches are pristine. Apart from a nine-hole golf course, tennis, and three pools, the resort has sunny, French-country-style rooms and a full spa. Classes range from yoga and pilates to boxing; treadmills overlook the water; and the spa offers seven different facials. Opt for a therapeutic neuromuscular massage, and then, if you can't handle any more relaxation, there's no need to settle for one of the six restaurants on the island -- South Beach and stylish eateries like Cameron Diaz's new Bambu are just a ferry and a short cab ride away.

DETAILS Fisher Island Club, 305-535-6026 (rooms start at $315 off-season, $385 during high season); Bambu, 305-531-4800.
