Hot sun, hypnotic waves, lots of bare skin . . . Beaches are languorous and voluptuous to begin with, but these 10 sandy stretches around the world are extra sexy, thanks to their beautiful scenery and even more beautiful people.

1. José Ignacio, Uruguay

Think St. Tropez, only more discreet and artsy, and in Latin America. This Uruguayan coastal resort town with a dynamic art scene brings together Brazilian models and Argentine millionaires escaping the heat of Southern Hemisphere summer.

2. South Beach, Florida

A veritable catwalk of hot and tan bods, Miami's crowning jewel is a 24-7 experience, thanks to its sizzling nightlife and even hotter sand.

3. Leblon, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

4. Hanalei Beach, Hawaii

5. Paradise Beach, Mykonos, Greece

The name says it all: If your idea of heaven consists of crystal water, soft sand, and lots of sun-kissed skin, the Greek isle of Mykonos is the place for you. The nearby Super Paradise Beach gets even wilder, with nudists mingling with a mixed gay and straight crowd.

6. Black's Beach, California

7. Bells Beach, Victoria, Australia

8. Las Salinas, Ibiza, Spain

9. Venice Beach, California

If you find eccentricities sexy, this place is it. A veritable human circus of Los Angeles, this sensory overload of beach sees lots of fit sunbathers playing volleyball or gliding on Rollerblades.

10. Sandy Beach, Puerto Rico
