Beaches are beautiful displays of Mother Nature's bounty, but nothing cranks up the heat like some sexy humans on the sand.
Here, in order from least lusty to most:
10. Mustique, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines

7. Venice Beach, USA
Skateboarders. Surfers. Shirtless rollerbladers and Muscle Beach weightlifters... the sporty-sexiness is out of control.
6. Paradise Island, Bahamas

5. St Tropez, France
Brigitte Bardot made this the "bikini-posing capital of the world" with a risqué photo in 1953.

This secret beach may not have any sexy glamor shots, but does knowing the Kardashians stayed here help at all?
3. Crane Beach, Barbados
Where Rihanna hangs out. 'Nuff said.
2. Tulum Beach, Mexico

1. Ipanema Beach, Brazil
The people-watching is great -- but with World Cup players on the field nearby, this famous beach can only get hotter as the tournament continues.
