Celebrities holiday spots are no longer a secret. Here’s where to find Jennifer Anniston, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Cameron Diaz and other A-list celebrities on their beach holiday.
1. Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Through all the break-ups, career highs and lows and unrelenting tabloid attention, one thing never changes for Jennifer Aniston: her favourite vacation spot, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She favours the beaches of the sunny city—located at the southern tip of Baja, California—for birthday and holiday celebrations, often bringing along a crew of gal pals including Courtney Cox Arquette, Chelsea Handler and Sheryl Crow.

2. Miami Beach, Florida
The South Beach neighbourhood of Miami Beach draws thousands of tourists each year (and is home to some of music’s finest, Gloria Estefan and Enrique Eglesias are just two stars who call the city home). Some celebs can be seen frolicking on the shores with locals, while others, like Jennifer Lopez, prefer to stay at luxury hotels. She recently celebrated her 42nd birthday at the FontaineBleau.
3. The French Riviera
4. Maui, Hawaii
5. St. Bart’s
London-based couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale and their kids, Kingston and Zuma, often decamp to this tropical paradise in the French West Indies for the holidays. There, the family takes boat rides, builds sandcastles and mingles with other star visitors, like Mariah Carey, Derek Jeter and Orlando Bloom.
This Caribbean island includes 365 beaches, as well as rainforests and water sports such as river-rafting and windsurfing. Stars have flocked to Antigua’s shores since Madonna and Sean Penn honeymooned there in 1985. Today, Oprah Winfrey, Denzel Washington and Giorgio Armani own homes on Antigua.
