Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2006

by Mark Ellwood

The sand may be shipped in from the Caribbean, but this is the sexiest two miles in all of America—whether by day on the beach or by night at one of the body-writhing clubs.

Rub suntanned elbows with: Models, wanna-be models, modelizers, and gloriously sexy expats from all over Latin America who could be models.

Best way to cool off: A minty mojito from the Ritz_Carlton's DiLido Beach Club.

Beach chic: If skintight leather is a bit too much for daytime, pick up a pair of hip-hugging trunks from Bottega Veneta designer Tomas Maier's concept store or a slinky, spangly little something at local couturier Julian Chang.

Where to bed down: Andre Balazs's Standard Miami on the western (bay) side of the island is a quirky newbie, with its vaguely spa theme and soothing music. The bathtubs on the verandas are a naughty touch.
