The view is breathtaking when Ashley Richardson hits the roof of a home in Paget parish, wearing a stretch lace cotton-Lycra miniskirt suit by Keiko ($132).

There's splendor in the grass near Tobacco Bay when Daniela lies down on the job in a Karla Colletto bikini ($98).

Manon von Gerkan takes time to reflect as she finds repose beside the pool at the Blue Horizons inn, decked out in a Lycra mesh bikini by Cazimi ($72).

At The Reefs, a cliff side resort on Christian Bay, you never know who's going to roll in with the tide. It might be Rebecca Romijn, who takes a dip at dusk in a nylon-spandex bikini from Gottex ($86); or Vendela, who lets the early-morning sun soak through a stretch fishnet tank top and bikini bottom by Monika Tilley ($150).

Clouds may be rolling in behind her, but Cheryl Tiegs shines like the sun in a minipleated Lycra maillot by Gottex ($106).

The statuesque Manon, in a satin Malia Mills bikini ($116), makes Stockdale House, a landmark on St. George's Island, an even more popular tourist attraction.

Cheryl is sitting pretty in a cabana at the Elbow Beach Hotel, having changed into a cotton-Lycra crop-top ($108) and matching hipster skirt ($66) by Malia Mills.

Though she's obviously no hayseed, Vendela looks downright down-home on St. George's in a fetching, overall-inspired gingham-checked Lycra suit by Spot Swim ($65).

Sunset, sunrise: At day's end, Angie Everhart hunkers down in a secluded cove near The Reefs in a metallic-finished bikini from Darling Rio ($60); while Judit Masco can't wait to greet the morning light at Jobson Cove, wearing a flowered Lycra maillot by Ritratti ($250).

A tranquil afternoon on the cool sand at Jobson Cove comes to an end for Manon, in a Lycra bikini by Gottex ($86), when the crystal water of the Atlantic invades her space.

With this much gold lying around, why waste time looking for buried treasure? Vendela looks rich in crop-top ($142) and leggings ($118) by Gottex.
