I don't get the "sexiest" part.  Seems like just a list of beaches.  Palm trees behind, sand underneath, and water in front... whats the deal?  Tiny bikinis on anorexic girls with fake boobs... what if they were running around the Walmart parking lot?

Try vacationing in Boracay. Taste what the Filipinos are very proud of - their hospitality. You'll be glad you did.

You wonder who creates these "Top Ten Best of. . . ." lists.  Do the places listed "bid on their position"?  Having lived on most of the Caribbean Islands, I have to take issue with Grand Case; it is not much of a beach, but it is a great place to dine.  One of the nicest, small (nude) beaches is Cupacoy Beach right near the Dutch/French border on St. Martin.  Small, intimate, nice waves for body surfing.  You can rent 2 chaise lounges and a large umbrella for $20.00 for the whole day.  Premium beers and soft drinks are $1.00-$2.50 each.  You can have a great time people watching:  Everything from the statuesque body builders (male and female) to the Mid-Western prudes who, after much hesitancy, begin to shed their flowered blouses and striped shorts to reveal a full 1-piece swimming suit that would do the Amish proud (no insult intended).  The husbands (having seen few classy nudes in their sheltered lives) eventually give in to the "excitement of the flesh", and try to cover their erections with a magazine or baseball cap.  If you want to have an intimate interlude you can go to either end of the beach and hide behind your umbrella.  The waves and seagulls will drown out your cries of ectasy.

My vote would be for Santorini. Spent many days there this summer. I don't find the beach in Hawaii to be sexy. Too many gay guys wearing the long dork shorts.

Too many sexy beaches to list. What about South Beach or St. Tropez or Bondi?

Sydney has much sexier beaches than Manly , which is primarily a surfing beach, Bondi Beach is probably the sexiest specially  the south side!!!!

just returned from Hawaii, must say North Shore Beach is beautiful. Among others in Kona which I found to be very relaxing.
