Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2007

by Natalie Walsh

Ihuru Island, Maldives

The vibe: Just say no to shoes.

Picture this: Remember the show Fantasy Island? It had nothing on the reality that is Ihuru. Located in the Indian Ocean, southwest of Sri Lanka, it's got palm-fringed beaches, a lagoon, even a reef teeming with marine life and a kaleidoscope of coral. Trust us, when you see the plane, you'll be sorry.

The crowd: Leggy Brit sophisticates in batik sarongs—plus lots of folks wearing fins.

The sundowner: Coconut water. There's no better drink for a hangover. Really.

Come to bed: Bed down under a thatched roof in one of 45 villas with private gardens and verandas at the Angsana Resort & Spa, which operates a policy of sustainable tourism.
