Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2006

by Mark Ellwood

The scene: a two-week vacation; 1,200 tiny low-lying coral islands to lose yourself in; turquoise waters that never dip below 79 degrees; and a very special friend. Much recovered since the 2004 tsunami, the Malvides are as laid-back and Edenic as ever.

Rub suntanned elbows with: Sophisticated, globe-trotting Brits; long-haired, lithe-bodied Swedes.

Best way to cool off: A coconut with a straw.

Beach chic: Keep it simple: bare feet, a swimsuit, and a sarong.

Where to bed down: A bungalow at Sol Kerzner's sumptuous One&Only Reethi Rah. Or just a pitch a hammock on the nearest pair of palm trees.
