Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2006

by Mark Ellwood

The "Jewel" has some of San Diego's prettiest beaches, sprinkled with aquatic caves and secluded coves. Pack your snorkel gear, too: La Jolla Cove's an eco-reserve with waters so clear you can count the stripes on the fish.

Rub suntanned elbows with: Surf-riding twentysomethings and Chanel-loving ladies of a certain age.

Best way to cool off: A gin and tonic if you're the latter; Mountain Dew for the former.

Beach chic: A real tan—and a too-relaxed_to-care California 'tude.

Where to bed down: La Valencia Hotel, a dusky pink Mediterranean Revival gem with a palm-shaded patio and Pacific views.
