The Best Travel Destinations for Celeb-Spotting
Guess what? Celebrities take vacations, too. Between Oscar nominations and memorizing lines, celebs are packing up and jetting off to exotic locations for some much-needed family time. But these Hollywood A-listers don’t just travel anywhere; they favor the crème de la crème. Here, ten of the best celeb-spotting travel destinations.
If you’re looking for a secluded and beachy vacation spot, Ibiza is calling your name. The island is located off the coast of Spain and draws visitors with its sweeping views and luxurious resorts. It’s a go-to spot for several A-list celebs, including Kate Hudson, Justin Bieber, Johnny Depp and more.
The Hawaiian Islands
This year, Britney Spears spent a sun-soaked week in Hawaii with her two sons, Sean (11) and Jayden (10), and proved that you don’t always have to travel internationally to have a good time.
Celebrities can’t get enough of the city of love. During the Formation World Tour in 2016, Beyoncé made a pit stop in Paris with her husband, Jay Z, and oldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter (5—not pictured). We volunteer as tribute to be an au pair for the Carter’s next family vacay.
Lake Como, Italy
Does this poolside view look familiar? Not only did John Legend and Chrissy Teigen tie the knot in Lake Como in 2013, but they also filmed the music video for All of Me at this scenic Italian location. Safe to say Lake Como has a whole lot of meaning for the Teigen-Stephens clan. And don’t even get us started on the George and Amal Clooney squad.
There’s no denying Indonesia’s beauty, and celebrities love traveling to Bali for a little holiday fun. In 2016, Lupita Nyong’o got some much-needed R&R while vacationing in Bali and shared several drool-worthy shots on Instagram that, in turn, bumped up Bali on our must-visit list.
Just 50 miles off the coast of Florida, the Bahamas is an all-inclusive celebrity hot spot. In fact, Reese Witherspoon traveled to the Caribbean destination in 2016 with her husband, Jim Toth, and her three kids, Ava (17), Deacon (13) and Tennessee (4), where they played on the beach, relaxed in the sun and enjoyed breathtaking sunsets alongside fellow Bahamian vacationers.
Turks and Caicos Islands
If you’re looking for a lavish spot, Turks and Caicos has all the panoramic views, luxury resorts and celebrity visitors you need. Don’t believe us? Just ask Rihanna, who took a break from her Anti World Tour in 2016 to enjoy a scenic holiday among the islands' spectacular turquoise water.
During vacation season, celebrities often pop by Japan’s busy capital, Tokyo, for a little sightseeing. But if you really want to spot a celeb, consider stopping by Tokyo Disneyland and you may run into Jessica Alba; her hubby, Cash Warren; and their two daughters, Honor (9) and Haven (5).
Gwyneth Paltrow, Ed Sheeran, Alicia Vikander and Karlie Kloss can’t get enough of Spain’s hustle and bustle. In 2016, Kloss visited Madrid and fell in love with its gorgeous architecture, busy streets and #FitnessFriday potential.
Leave it to Madonna to uncover an amazing hidden travel gem. For her 58th birthday in 2016, the Vogue singer traveled to Cuba’s capital city for a b-day celebration that, in true Havana fashion, lasted until the wee hours of the morning. Other Cuba vacationers include Beyoncé, Jay Z, Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and more.
