Île de Ré, Bay of Biscay, France

Off the western coast of France in the Bay of Biscay, Île de Ré is known as the “White Island” by locals due to both its soft, pale sand and the elegant waterfront houses painted in neutral colors. Windswept dunes and pine forests, like the beautiful, Hamptons-like Plage des GollandièresI, back its long, flat stretches of beach—making every beach on the island Instagrammable (no filter needed). Make sure to stop into one of the many beachfront oyster “cabanes,” or boardwalk shacks, to enjoy fresh-caught fruits de mer.
