Six weeks of glorious summer holidays have passed, and if you’re anything like us, you’re already planning your next holiday / booking that adult’s only holiday to recover and recoup!
We’ve been hard at work rounding up the internet’s finest travel suggestions ready to share with you.
1. ISLA HOLBOX, MEXICO
“Less than three hours from the insanity of Cancún—its all-inclusives, its two-for-one margs, its traffic, and its golf courses—Holbox is about as sleepy a spot as one can find nowadays, just a nature preserve, a stretch of beach, and a single small town, also called Holbox, that feels completely out of time.” writes Ondine Cohen for Condé Nast Traveler.

2. BAWAH ISLAND, INDONESIA
“Bawah Island is a pocket of paradise, consisting of 35 suites and bungalows made from sustainable bamboo, driftwood and other natural materials.” Writes Mollie Carberry for Pebble Magazine.
“The resort also focuses on sustainability (we won’t mention the seaplane). It’s powered by a renewable microgrid, with solar water heating, fortnightly beach cleaning, a nursery to repopulate the forests and a permaculture garden.”
