Top 5 Beach Vacations for A-Listers

When celebrities go on vacation, they tend to opt for private islands and exclusive resorts where they are protected from the sweaty masses, and can play and be pampered in the lap of luxury.
 
Necker Island
 
Owned by Virgin’s Sir Richard Branson, Necker has been host to some of the most famous people in the world including Mariah Carey, Kate Moss, Rod Stewart and Oprah Winfrey. Kate Winslet was of course staying at the Great House when it burned to the ground in August 2011.

The 74-acre island in the British Virgin Islands was purchased by the magnate and father-of-three back in 1978 and opened as a luxury retreat in 1984. The rebuilt Great House has eight bedrooms, a bunkhouse for the kids, plus a master suite and there are an additional six one-bedroom houses. If you don’t need to rent the entire island (for roughly $62,000 a night), you and your significant other can enjoy a week’s stay for approximately $30,000.
 
Hawaii
 
The eight islands of Hawaii have long been a favorite beach vacation destination for celebrities with A-listers like Katy Perry, Will Smith, Kim Kardashian, Charlize Theron and Cameron Diaz being spotted in the surf.
 
Kauai seems to attract many of the rich and famous, some of whom enjoy their time at the St. Regis Princeville, a 5-star resort on Hanalei Bay. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been known to stay at the enormous hideaway, which features its own waterfall, working cattle ranch, and de rigeur spa.
 
Punta de Mita, Mexico
 
Following Lady Gaga’s 2011 visit, Punta de Mita has seen its share of famous visitors like Kirsten Dunst, Charlie Sheen and Hilary Duff gracing its beaches. Although it’s quite a small village, its beachfront location and proximity to Puerto Vallarta attracts A-listers who want a break from the hustle and bustle of L.A. and maybe try their hand at surfing, snorkeling and other water sports.
 
Cabo, Mexico
 
Known to be Jennifer Aniston’s favorite get-away, the former Friends star is often seen soaking up the sun at Las Ventanas Al Paraiso with bikini-buddy Courteney Cox and fiance Justin Theroux.

The draw is the spectacular setting and luxury that can’t be beat, with all the expected requirements for the pampered: custom furnishings, heated infinity pools, chilled Evian spray for too-warm sunbathers and 24-hour butler service.
 
George Clooney, Simon Cowell, Jennifer Lopez and Sheryl Crow are other famous faces who enjoy the resort, located at the tip of the Baja Peninsula where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. It seems that whale-watching and celebrity-spotting are equally rewarding pastimes in Cabo.
 
Bora Bora
 
The St. Regis is just one of the upscale resorts offering private, over-the-water villas, and World-class service on one of the most beautiful and romantic islands in the world, set amid endless Pacific waters.
