Tiny Elbow Cay in the Bahamas is short on crowds and big on charm--and hardly anybody knows about it.

Built on a small hill that slopes down to a public beach, this hotel has 26 guest units (both individual rooms and private cottages), sweeping views of the ocean, two on-site restaurants, a pool, and cheerful bartenders. It's so much fun that the cast of Scrubs stayed here in 2008 to shoot a tropical wedding scene. Rates start at $242 per night. Queens Highway; 866/611-9791 or hopetownlodge.com
