Off Limits and Mysteries at the Museum host Don Wildman’s favorite beach is Sandy Hook, NJ, at the entrance of New York Harbor. “There are not many people because it’ a trek -- so you feel like you’re playing hooky from Manhattan.” 960 1280

Anegada, BVI

American Originals host Steve Watson says "I rent a 50-foot bareboat and we bounce around the BVI for weeks at a time. Anegada is the lone, flat island that isn't land-on-sight. A hidden gem, with a milk jug marked channel. You must be a seasoned mariner to navigate the channel but it is well worth it. I hope you love spiny lobster!!" 960 1280

Hotel Impossible’s Anthony Melchiorri’s favorite beach is on St. John (US Virgin Islands). “The majority of the Island is federal park, so it will be quiet and peaceful for years to come.” 960 1280

Kailua, Hawaii

Kailua, Hawaii

Host of the all-new Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America, Adam Richman says, “I love the beach. I hate cold weather. If I have to take a beach trip, it will more than likely be one in Hawaii -- either something on the North Shore like Waimea, or something maybe a little farther east like Kailua, or even something that's a private beach from one of the hotels on the leeward side of Honolulu. I like Steps Beach in Puerto Rico, and any of the beaches in Nevis. I also found some really beautiful beaches in Phuket and Koh Phi Phi in Thailand.” 960 1280
