For many vacationers, the destination is not as important as just getting away from it all: the office, the traffic jams, the pre-sunrise alarms. Set them on a beach with a book or drink in hand and they are in heaven.

We've rounded up some ideas for just such a trip, from tai chi with elderly locals to serious pampering and wellness treatments at a spa resort. If you plan well, you can even pick up a trick or two for when you get back home to the stress and trials of everyday life.
