Ipanema Beach named sexiest beach in the world

Brazil’s Ipanema Beach has been crowned the sexiest beach on the planet.

The 1.5-mile stretch of white sand and crystal clear ocean in Rio de Janeiro, which is a popular holiday hotspot among the rich and famous, took the number one spot in Travelzoo’s list of the 10 sexiest beaches in the world.

Even celeb and football superstar David Beckham recently checked into his beachfront pad – the Fasano Hotel – on Ipanema Beach.

Second place went to the picturesque coastline of Tulum Beach in Mexico, which is a haven for models and Hollywood actresses including the likes of Cara Delevingne and Michelle Rodriguez, while third place was awarded to Crane Beach in Barbados, where pop princess Rihanna is often snapped soaking up the rays.

Natai Beach in Thailand finished fourth, followed by St Tropez in France in fifth. Kim Kardashian is among the celebrities to have stopped at Natai Beach, while Brigitte Bardot made St Tropez famous when she graced the sands during the 1953 Cannes Film Festival.
