Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2007

by Natalie Walsh

Kaanapali Beach, Maui, Hawaii

The vibe: Chilled-out aloha spirit

Picture this: A big romance only comes along once in a lifetime (or maybe thrice…)? So embrace the Hawaiian cliché of sunsets, fresh-flower leis, and warm waters of the island's upmarket west coast. You could stroll in the charming nearby town of Lahaina with its art galleries and restaurants, or explore the small coves of Napili. Or, just chill under the Hawaiian sun together and neck.

The crowd: Vacationers in Hawaiian shirts, artistic types in floaty caftans, bleached-blond boys. Ignore 'em all and pay attention to the person you came with.

The sundowner: Pull up a bar stool and ask for a Tanned Beach Bum: dark rum, Kahlua, ice, and milk.

Come to bed: Set on 40 beachfront acres, the centerpiece of the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa is a 750,000-gallon free-form pool with an underwater cave and grotto bar. Heat things up on your private lanai, or get amorous on the pillow-top mattresses floating above the Plantation-style wood beds.
