We can't stop here - this is jellyfish country!

Have you ever been to the beaches in the Charleston, SC, area in May? Is the water warm enough to swim in, and how clear is it (jellyfish? seaweed? etc)? Should we instead go further down the Atlantic coast to Tybee Island? Is our attempt to find a new beach hopeless? Should we just go back to the Redneck Riviera (read: Gulf Coast)?

Deserted beach camping in the DC-area

I'm looking for extremely primitive beach camping sites (preferably on the Chesapeake) in the DC/MD/VA area. I'm talking about places with no running water, no bathrooms, nothing but nature for miles around. Assateague Island's backcountry camping sites are a perfect example of what I'm looking for. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Where is an uncrowded beach on Memorial Day?

This Memorial Day weekend, my girlfriend and I would like to go on a US vacation to an ocean/gulf beach. The challenge: (1) I hate crowds, and especially crowded beaches. (2) I want to be able to swim in the water, so it can't be freezing. (3) It must be a sandy beach, not some crazy cliff-side or rocky beach. (4) I am not looking to camp, or drive an RV or in any other way 'rough it', so a hotel / b&b / cottage of some sort is necessary. Within reason, money is not a major issue, nor is flying time, or need for other scenery/attractions. [more inside]

China is really big! Where do I go?

After many other ideas have fallen through, I think I'll be going to China about 7 days in May. But it's so big! Inner Mongolia sounds cool; is it worth traveling around Hohhot? I could go surfing in Hainan, but how is the beach compared to Ha Long Bay, or Copacabana, or Playas del Este...? [more inside]

Two people seek affordable hammock

Help my partner and me find a place to take a well-deserved vacation in mid-March. We have a budget of about $1500 including flights. We are looking for something near a beach where it's warm, within flying distance of New York City but preferable outside the US. Something more upscale than a straw hut in Dominica but less pre-determined than an all-inclusive resort in Antigua. Bonus points for ecotourism and cultural memorability.
