Summer is the perfect time for vacation. For many of us, it means a trip to a nearby beach. For the famous, though, a vacation is far more luxurious. Here are where the stars go when they need some R&R.
Los Cabos, Mexico

While Taylor Swift and Bruce Willis enjoy the privacy of Parrot Cay, a private island in Turks and Caicos, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson hang out in Saint Bart's with Mick Jagger. Gwen Sefani and Gavin Rossdale, Orlando Bloom, Mariah Carey, and Derek Jeter enjoy St. Bart's as well.
Located in the French Riviera, Saint Tropez is a favorite of Beyonce and Jay Z. The couple vacationed here multiple times, taking advantage of jet skis, yachts, and nightclubs on the beach.
