Once everyone has heard of it, we're over it. From Uruguay to Portugal, here are the new places to spend your hard-earned PTO in 2019.
Comporta, Portugal
For those seeking: a tranquil Ibiza
Just shy of a two-hour drive from Lisbon, this untouched bohemian beach town is a hot spot for the French (interior designer Jacques Granges owns a home here). Fun fact: it occupies the longest beach in all of Europe (100 miles).

Where to stay: Skip the hotel and rent a house (they’re all compound style) in Brejos or Possanco.

What to do: Go horseback riding through the dunes, followed by a private picnic on the beach. You won’t see anyone for miles.

Where to eat: Sal's at Pego Beach is the perfect lunch spot for vino verde (green wine), razor clams, tiger prawns and squid rice. For dinner, pop by Gomes in town (and don't miss their gourmet grocery next door).
What to Wear
Niseko, Japan
For those seeking: St. Mortiz-level skiing in Asia
Put simply: “après” is not part of the Japanese vocabulary. In fact, Niseko attracts the most serious of skiers thanks to an abundance of quality powder (the city is one of the most northern points in Japan).  

Where to stay: The ski-on-ski-off Skye Hotel perfectly combines Japanese and alpine culture.

What to do: Ski, obviously. But there are also great spas and unique-to-the-locale hot springs. Book a private onsen (hot spring) at the Skye Hotel and gaze at the grand Mount Yotei.

How to get there: Fly to Sapporo where you can then choose between a 2 hour train, car or bus ride to Niseko.
