Travel Channel Hosts' Favorite Beaches
Beach on the brain? Check out some of our hosts’ favorite beaches this summer.
Anegada, BVIAmerican 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
Kailua, HawaiiHost 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

Venice, CAA creative visionary named Abott Kinney dreamed of building the Venice, Italy, of America. He wanted to make sure his oceanfront oasis was more magnificent than any other, so he connected the promenade to an intricate system of canals, which are lined with multi-million-dollar homes. 960 1280
