Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2007

by Natalie Walsh

The Similan Islands, Thailand

The vibe: Wash my hair tonight? Why bother?

Picture this: Nine tropical jungle islands, each ringed by troves of hidden-away beaches and surrounded by magnificent reefs. So unspoiled that they're known by numbers rather than by name, they're located across the water from the Phang Nga mainland, just north of Phuket.

The crowd: Barefoot beachcombers kissing in quiet coves, and pairs of snorkelers disappearing into the reefs

The sundowner: Take a sunset cruise around the islands and wine and dine on a boat moored in a shimmering bay.

Come to bed: You'll have to stay on the mainland, which, trust us, is not a hardship. Slip between the sheets at the Sarojin in Khao Lak, where the concierge staff call themselves "imagineers." The hotel offers tailor-made packages for couples, including private boat trips to the Similans on its 38-foot Lady Sarojin luxury boat.
