Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2006

by Mark Ellwood

Corfu isn't just for boozing 'n' bonking package-holiday Brits: There are still plenty of unspoiled, olive grove–rimmed beaches for the more discriminating (and less sunburned) among us. This exotic island has a long literary history, too: After all, it supposedly inspired Shakespeare to shipwreck Prospero.

Rub suntanned elbows with: Tousle-haired Greek shipping heirs and the spoiled-but-sexy girls who bed them.

Best way to cool off: A martini the way the Greeks like 'em—extra_dry, with a local olive.

Beach chic: Dig through Mom's closet for her best vintage Paco Rabanne bikini, circa 1965—or a Gernreich monokini if you dare.

Where to bed down: The peninsula-set Grecotel Corfu Imperial, which has three private sandy beaches and enough space to moor a private yacht (all the better to lure those shipping heirs).
