Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2007

by Natalie Walsh

Laguna Beach, California

The vibe: California lovin'

Picture this: This prime slice of California coastline combines the wealth and glamour of La-La Land with a seriously hip surfside culture and artists' haven. Strike a pose on your beach towel, check out the talent from behind your Wayfarers, and if you can actually surf, get out there and earn some cred.

The crowd: Pierce Brosnan, Tiger Woods, and Kelly Slater. Not to mention the hotties playing beach volleyball and wannabe actors in lifeguard training.

The sundowner: The Hippolyte Bouchard, the signature cocktail at the Studio at Montage, made with spiced rum, Chambord, house sour, and cinnamon sugar. It's named after a pirate who supposedly buried a hidden treasure off the coast.

Come to bed: Overlooking the Pacific Ocean on a 50-foot bluff, the Montage Laguna Beach is especially worthwhile for its oceanfront spa laced with soothing whirlpools, saunas, 21 treatment rooms, and a lap pool.
