For those shopping for an adult-only beach that offers a pulsing nightlife, head to Miami, Florida, which snagged the title of sexiest beach.
“Soft sand, beautiful warm water, interesting people, volleyball and fun spots to go to for a bite or a beverage nearby,” says swimsuit model Nina Agdal. Another plus? “…it’s acceptable to wear tiny bikinis.”

Couples seeking a tropical escapade may want to head to Little Dix Bay in the British Virgin Islands, which was named the most romantic beach for its hidden coves, luxurious resorts, and “barefoot elegance.”
And for sun-seekers looking for a beach destination that’s far from the madding crowds, consider the best beach you’ve never heard of, Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, suggests Travel Channel.
As the deepest lake in Central America, Lake Atitlan is located in the highlands of Guatemala in a volcanic crater and has been called one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.
“Nestled in the valley of 3 volcanoes (one of them still active), you’ll not only take in peaceful volcanic views, but also absorb the vibrant pink, yellow and blue colors of the surrounding vegetation.”
