LONDON (Reuters Life!) - Not all beaches are created equal. Some glamorous shorelines get a little more love from entertainment royalty than others, so check out the list of which hot spots attract the world's most scintillating stars, and add them to your travel agenda this summer. This list is not endorsed by Reuters:


Although Beyonce and Jay-Z seem to vacation everywhere, the hip-hop royalty couple jets to the beach-side huts of the Maldives on the Indian Ocean as well. The beaches here are set around a series of ancient coral reefs that expanded along the sides of prehistoric volcanoes, which make for astounding snorkeling and diving in the warm water lagoons. Other celebs who love this spot are Kate Moss, Eva Longoria, Jude Law and Penelope Cruz.

Mallorca, Spain

The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is a no-brainer for spotting famous beachgoers. Stars like Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas own property here, as well as athletes and pop stars from all over the world. When you're done sunbathing on its glorious stretches of sand on the east and north coasts (rumored to be the best beaches on the island), take a Vespa tour through the rich Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, and along olive groves and pine forests.


Turtle Island, Fiji

This South Pacific paradise is your best bet for celeb sightings -- if you have the money and connections to get on land, that is. Pop stars like Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson have secured spots on the privately-owned island, which allows only 28 guests at a time. If funds allow, you can also reserve one of the island's 14 beaches, or the entire island itself. But we're guessing if you have that kind of money, you might already be a celebrity, and not looking to spot one.
