Sun-burnished and buff bodies aren't in short supply in this upscale beach village just a short ferry ride from San Diego. Its fine beaches attract the likes of Navy SEALS, who train here, as well as wealthy singles seeking a small-town feel. A stroll along the beach with its breathtaking views and gently lapping waves is an ideal first date. For those seeking more than just sand and surf, the recently reopened Village Theater, an Art Deco-style movie house, is an elegant backdrop for a budding romance.
