Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2006

by Mark Ellwood

Whether you're whale watching, windsurfing, or just romancing, the beaches on Maui are lush and postcard-perfect. You can luxuriate on Kapalua beach in West Maui, a perfect crescent protected from harsh winds by lava rock outcrops, or watch windsurfers tackle the elements on Ho'okipa Beach on the North Shore.

Rub suntanned elbows with: Left Coast entertainment bigwigs (plus their ready-tanned wives) and buff surfers—Ho'okipa is close to Jaws, the monster wave made famous by hottie Laird Hamilton.

Best way to cool off: Snack on Spam appetizers—it's still a throwback favorite here—and a mai tai.

Beach chic: Make like an '80s surf bum with the latest retro label to be resurrected from the fashion graveyard: Ocean Pacific, dude.

Where to bed down: Four Seasons Wailea, which has cooling Evian mists poolside.
