While flipping through a recent edition of Maxim (no, it's not a regular habit) someone pointed a nice little surprise: The magazine has proclaimed Isle of Palms' beach one of the nation's six sexiest.

Read more stories on this subject in our rankings topic page.Like The Post and Courier, we kinda question the logic behind the choice, but hey it's nice feather in Charleston's ever growing list of high rankings.

Here's what the magazine said on page 13 of its July 2009 issue:

This seven-mile-long and one-mile-wide barrier island has pristine beaches littered with smoking-hot rich ladies lured in by high-end shops all over the island. It's like chum for sharks. (Sharks who are into really expensive handbags.)"

So go on all you young studs and bag yourself a "cougar."

Hawaii, Hamptons Beach, and Hanalei were all among the magazine's other pics -- and no, the magazine has yet to put the list online.
