The film, "COAST," is described as a "coming of age" story, although co-director Jessica Hester calls it more of a "mother-daughter coming of age" movie, which was filmed almost entirely in the Santa Maria Valley.
Located about 14 miles southwest of St. Petersburg, Fort De Soto Park is spread out over five small islands connected by bridges and causeways. These west coast keys have everything you’d want in a beach getaway: Three miles of beach, two swim centers, two fishing piers, and seven miles of trails — no motor vehicles allowed. There’s marine life and wildlife to peep on those walks, including 328 bird species and a loggerhead sea turtle refuge. The 1,100 acres even include some notable history, as Native Americans inhabited the land around 1,000 A.D. and Union troops built fortifications on the islands during the Civil War to help with the blockade of Tampa Bay.

Christian Wylie, the winery's managing director, says one of the biggest hurdles is its location: Many consumers don't even know where Uruguay is. (Hint: it's between Argentina and Brazil on South America's Atlantic Coast.)

Whether you base yourself on Panama's Caribbean or Pacific coast, you'll have access to vibrant reefs and remarkable shipwrecks to explore.

Panama's Caribbean coast is gifted with calm azure sea and loads of tiny islands and islets. To the west, Bocas del Toro comprise Panama's most popular islands and isolated beaches, hiking opportunities and snorkeling and diving at Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park. Hiring a wooden motorboat to island hop is the recommended way to take in the archipelago's mangrove forests, stunning beaches, and hidden coves.
If beaches are the main thing drawing you to Bali, consider spending a mix of your time on the mainland and on the nearby island of Nusa Lembongan, which offers better swimming conditions than the main island. Popular beach destinations on Bali include Sanur and Nusa Dua on the southeastern part of the island and Kuta and Seminyak on the western shores. All four destinations are relatively convenient if you want to stay in one place and do day trips. Kuta, in particular, offers a high concentration of budget-friendly bars and restaurants and is a good place to stay if you want to party. If you want something a bit quieter and more bohemian, Canggu is a great choice. Popular with aspiring surfers and digital nomads, this small community is a bit further up the coast from Kuta (about half an hour without traffic) and has a ton of fun places to stay and eat on the cheap.
