A place like the island in Mamma Mia! movie

My wife loves the music & scenery in Mamma Mia! The Movie. Is there anywhere in the continental US that has beaches, hills, water that looks similar, preferably near nice hotels or a resort? (We're not much into hiking into rough country or primitive camping.) I'd love to take her there!

Um, no hills here. Pretty much below sea level.

My advice? Save up and do the real thing...the Greek Islands.

The biggest hill in Key West is about 18 ft. !

It's where Hemingway had his pool dug, first on the island. He kidded that it was built on Mount Key West.

Google on Catalina Island in Cal. I think you'll like it. Try Carmel Ca on the coast too in the Big Sur area.

No hills in Key West...

But you might find some Dancing Queens!

Wow, you learn some great stuff on this forum....

We were under the impression that the highest point in Key West was the Home Depot parking lot because that's where people park their cars when they think it's going to flood.
