Seeing Stars this Summer - Celebrity Holiday Hotspots

Jul 21, 2008
If you're going on holiday this summer, remember to pack your best knickers. Celebrities are everywhere these days and you never know when you might find yourself building a sand castle with P Diddy or sharing an ice lolly with Elton. If you're not sure where to start your search for a star, here's a short guide to some top celebrity holiday hangouts.

The French Riviera is a perennial favourite of the rich and famous. A-listers and wannabes flock to Cannes during the annual film festival to sip champagne aboard luxury yachts. St Tropez draws the celebrity elite throughout the season with Pamela Anderson, Elton John, P Diddy, Liz Hurley and Donatella Versace regularly resting and playing. If you're into day-glo tans and white jeans, this is your home from home.

On a slightly less vulgar theme, the Balearic Islands attract celeb royalty. Hollywood heros, supermodels, fashionistas and rock gods head to hideaways in Ibiza and Majorca year after year. Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Jade Jagger, Fat Boy Slim, Sting, Elle McPherson, Matthew Williamson, Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer, Liam Gallagher, John Paul Gaultier, Paris Hilton and P Diddy are all regulars. Head to these hot Spanish islands if you like things cool and stylish.

There's at least one big reason to go to Lake Como...gorgeous George. Mr Clooney owns a villa on the lake where the big Hollywood names holiday and it is possible that you'll catch George in his speedos. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes also married in this region. So if you appreciate good food, fine wine and spectacular scenery as well as star spotting then book your seat to bella Italia.

The Caribbean is a magnet to millionaires, with Mick Jagger, the Beckhams, Tiger Woods, Britney and Sting regularly recuperating in the luxury resorts of Antigua and Barbados. British entrepreneur Richard Branson owns his very own island, Necker, in the British Virgin Islands, which can be rented out for just $46,000 a night. Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and Mel Gibson have all stayed here so if you're feeling flush and looking for some posh privacy it could be for you.

Mecca to premiership footballers and their WAGs is the United Arab Emirate of Dubai in the Middle East. Over the last five years, politicians, CEOs, sports stars and Hollywood hotties have visited the glitzy hotels and snapped up property here. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Rod Stewart, Ronaldo, David Beckham, Michael Schumacher, Tiger Woods and Richard Branson have been seen enjoying the shopping, sunshine and beaches. Strictly for fans of blinging man-made glamour.

Miami, Florida is again attracting A-list party people with its Latin beats, Art Deco architecture, super-cool shopping and sizzling beaches. Shakira, Jessica Alba, Matt Damon, Enrique Iglesias, Bono, Snoop Dogg, Justin Timberlake and Jennifer Lopez have all been known to enjoy the South Beach scene, with some owning homes here. Forget the Golden Girls and pack your party feet.

If globetrotting isn't for you, you might like to book a week in sunny Southwold, England. You could be lucky enough to bump into Gordon Brown eating his fish and chips. The Prime Minister is taking his family to the Suffolk seaside town this summer.
