Summer holidays mean different things to different people: some throw caution to the wind with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to maximise time out the office; others jet straight into a city destination to soak up every ounce of culture; and those who decamp somewhere serene – and preferable scenic – to steal a few moments of solitude. This issue criss-crosses the globe to deliver the best travel inspo whatever your pleasure.

Come with us as we soak up the sun in some of our favourite resorts across the Maldives, Seychelles and Mauritius, whilst heading inland in the latter to discover underwater waterfalls, UNESCO World Heritage sites and rainbow-coloured sands that go far, far beyond the typical Mauritian beach experience.

We also head to America, to discover the wild, untouched mystical landscapes and rock formations of Utah, that put the adjective ‘breathtaking’ to very good use, and peek through the keyhole of some new hotels that are thoroughly deserving a visit a summer.

Sun’s out, fun’s out as the saying goes… Where will you go to have yours?
