St. Bart’s

How many celebrities can you pack into 8 square miles? Take a trip to the Caribbean Island of St. Bart’s to find out. Once described by Vanity Fair as “summer camp for wealthy, well-known New Yorkers,” St. Bart’s has been crawling with celebs ever since the Rockefellers made it trendy back in the 1950s.

With only two-dozen hotels on the island this vacation spot is both secluded and exclusive – two things celebrities love. While strolling down the white sandy beaches, you might be lucky enough to bump into Leonardo DiCaprio frolicking with a harem of models or Rihanna rocking a tiny bikini.

The best time to go is at New Years when the celebrity parties are in full swing. Sneak into Russian billionaire Roman Abramovitch’s famous New Year shindig and be entertained by the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Kings of Leon while chatting up stars like Paul McCartney, Jay Z & Beyoncé and Sting.

Kauai, Hawaii

Ever since Elvis started picking up Girls, Girls, Girls in Blue Hawaii, these stateside islands have been a wildly popular destination for celebrities and regular folk alike. The state sprawls across eight islands, so your best bet for a celeb sighting would probably be the fourth largest isle, Kauai.

Stay at the 5 star St. Regis Princeville resort and you might find yourself neighboring the likes of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. This 250 room property has 19 restaurants, an 18-hole golf course, and amazing views of Hanalei Bay, so there’s really no reason to leave it, especially when paparazzi are lurking just beyond the gates.

St. Tropez

St. Tropez was popularized by the original sex kitten Brigitte Bardot in the steamy 1956 film …And God Created Woman, along with bikinis and topless sunbathing — two things you’ll see plenty of in this little slice of heaven on the French Riviera. Sprinkled with luxurious waterfront villas boasting large private gardens to keep the photographers at bay, St. Tropez is also a hot spot for yachting, which celebrities can’t seem to get enough of.

This sun-soaked paradise attracts some pretty famous families, so don’t be surprised to run into the Beckhams, the Jolie-Pitts or Neil Patrick Harris and his adorable brood should you be lucky enough to visit.
