Necker Island--also known as a little piece of heaven--is an island in the Caribbean that British businessman Richard Branson bought in the late 1970s. Three years later, he turned it into a resort of lavishness and absolute indulgence for the small fortune of $10 million dollars. The island is usually rented out entirely by celebrities of all sorts for the ultimate luxurious getaway. Rumor has it that it's an all-time favorite for big stars like Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey, Mel Gibson and Kate Winslet.
Cabo San Lucas
Cabo is ideal for celebrities who want a quick getaway to a beautiful destination, because it's so close to L.A. So, it's no surprise that stars like Jennifer Aniston can be found sunbathing and getting some R&R in this oasis in Mexico. Oh, the life of a celebrity.
Heading to Maui, Hawaii for a vacation is a no-brainer. Its stunning beaches, soft sand and heavenly views beckon celebrities from all over to bask in its beauty. Brian Austin Green and wife Megan Fox were wed here and return every year for their anniversary. Can you blame them?
South Beach has been a celebrity destination for years--way before the Kardashians took over. Miami is filled with famous clubs, ritzy hotels like Fountainebleu, high-end fashion boutiques and beautiful weather. If that's not celebrity heaven, we don't know what is.
St. Tropez in the French Riveria is one of the most luxurious and spectacular places of all. If celebrities aren't found in St. Tropez's best 5-star hotels, then you can be sure to see them lounging around on their private yachts. Celebrities such as Catherine Zeta Jones, Victoria Beckham and Tom Cruise can be found at this hotspot, whether it's for some quality relaxation or a romantic getaway.
There are so many celebrities who head for the beautiful country of Italy that it's hard to narrow down just one destination that they all wind up at. Can you blame them? It's Italy, for goodness sake! A land filled with delicious food, beautiful language, and heavenly beaches ... okay, we're sold. George Clooney is known for vacationing in Lake Como (pictured here) and generously inviting his friends (ahem, other celebrities) to his villa there. Ischia is another hotspot where stars like Sofia Vergara and Channing Tatum have been spotted.
Rio de Janeiro
Rio de Janeiro screams sex appeal. It's hot, racy, and filled with beautiful people. So, it would only make sense that sultry Penelope Cruz and husband Javier Bardem were seen wandering around the beaches, and Gerard Butler and Madonna we're spotted partying it up in the clubs. Next stop: Rio de Janeiro, please.
