These are Heidi Klums favorite beach destinations
Supermodel, television personality, and businesswoman Heidi Klum does a lot of traveling.
Travel + Leisure recently caught up with Klum at the launch of her to ask her about some of travel favorites and secrets, including where she loves to go for a beach getaway.
So what were Klum's top two picks?
With its crystal-clear waters, the Maldives has become known as one of the world's top diving destinations, with an entire underwater world of colorful marine life.
"The Turks and Caicos and the Maldives have some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to," Klum told T+L. "The oceans are so blue and the water is so clear."
With 26 atolls, the Maldives offer a variety of unique attractions, from an underwater spa to a restaurant in a treehouse where open-aired pods sit connected via pathways and bridges 20 feet in the air. The nation was also named the world's best spa destination by the World Travel Awards, but the most known feature may be the over-the-water villas.
"The Maldives are magical because they have these amazing hotels with huts so you're right out in the middle of the ocean," said Klum. "It's so peaceful."
Interested in hotels where you'll find these accommodations? Check out Gili Lankanfushi, where you can stay in residences that stand in the middle of the Indian Ocean with your very own private motorized boat and overwater hammock, or to COMO Cocoa Island, where the 33 suites and villas are inspired by local dhoni fishing boats connected by planked walkways overlooking a lagoon.
Turks and Caicos
With more than 230 miles, the islands of Turks and Caicos offer white sands and coral reefs. For Klum, the destination's beaches are ideal for vacationing with her children.
"Turks and Caicos has really shallow waters off the beach, so it's great for my kids to play in," she said.
