Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2007

by Natalie Walsh

Motu Tane, French Polynesia

The vibe: Fashionista air kisses and catwalks on the beach

Picture this: A short boat hop from Bora Bora, this private island is available for rent to those with serious cash. French interiors guru Christian Liaigre designed the chic thatched-roof bungalows. Strike a pose on the blanc sands, take a private four-wheel-drive excursion, go whale and dolphin watching, ask the caterers for a torchlit Polynesian feast on the beach. Paradise by design.

The crowd: Size 0 fashion doyennes, the design glitterati, supermodels posing for cover shots. Not a love handle in sight!

The sundowner: Whatever your heart desires, sweetie

Come to bed: To ensure exclusivity and privacy, Motu Tane can only be rented by one select group at a time. The 12 beach bungalows are stuffed with enough sumptuous furnishings and high-tech toys to keep the pickiest Parisian happy. Stay in touch with New York and Milan with the state-of-the-art IDD telephone system.
