World's Sexiest Resorts

by Mark Ellwood


Where: Little Dix Bay, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands

Ideal for: Sand-romping Ivy Leaguers keen to re-create Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster's wave-lapped clinch.

Sexiest detail: Couples' day trips (picnic included) to one of 11 different private beaches.

The lure: Laurance Rockefeller's eco-retreat may sit on a private crescent of sand, but couples can also book a free "beach drop": The hotel will shuttle them solo by speedboat to one of the sandy retreats dotted around Virgin Gorda and the Dog Islands and leave them alone for up to four hours. The best spot for frolicsome twosomes is Valley Trunk beach, but since none takes more than 15 minutes to reach, if another couple's already claimed that spot, it's easy to shuttle to the next spit of sand. The day pack includes towels, umbrella, and a cooler full of food and ready-popped Champagne (whipped cream and strawberries strictly optional).

Sexiness factor: More ardent than a double feature of From Here to Eternity and The Blue Lagoon.
