ECOXBT Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

The only speaker on the market that is 100 percent waterproof, this rugged gadget is fully submersible and it floats, so you can knock it off the boat or drop it in the pool and it will rise to the surface (and the occasion), speakers facing up and tunes jamming. It streams music from any Bluetooth-enabled device and lets you answer incoming calls over the built-in speakerphone. And its rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 10 hours of play time. $129.99. ecoxgear.com

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone.
