Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2009

by Colleen Clark

What's a girl to do when she loses the very shirt off her back? Head to a place where you don't need one. Beaches are the original less-is-more vacation, where you can strip life down to its most important elements: sun, sand, and the scantily clad. Once again this year, we've surveyed the globe for our list of the world's sexiest beaches, uncovering everything from eco-outposts where six-packed strutters ride the rough surf to sybaritic spots for slipping out of that bikini and into some stranger's oceanfront cabana. Times are tough—there's no need to blow your cash on a hippy-dippy yoga retreat when the ultimate (ahem) stress reliever is tanned, oiled, and free on a sexy beach near you.
