Beach + Island

World's Sexiest Beaches 2009

by Colleen Clark

Mazunte, Mexico

The turn-on: Mazunte is the stuff that escape fantasies are made of. The rustic little town on Mexico's chic but still unspoiled Pacific coast is a barefoot existence of beachfront shacks and unmarked hideaways. It's so drop-in, drop-out sexy that even sea turtles come to mate here. Grab your certain someone, that old Holga camera, and a few sarongs, and prepare to hole up in a hammock above the khaki sands.

Hot bodies: Yogis, surfers, and nomads down micheladas alongside laid-off ad execs at the beach's chilled-out eco-lodges.

Bed down: The back-to-basics rooms of La Posada del Arquitecto (pictured) are carved into the rocks of Playa Rinconcito. Beds hang from the ceiling, the shower is built into a tree trunk, and the whole thing is fronted by a rainbow-hued row of hammocks.
