Your jaw will drop when you arrive at possibly the most perfect beach resort in the world. A private island with pristine white sand, granite boulders and a brilliant turquoise sea, this celeb-friendly hideaway (Kate and Wills honeymooned here) has just 11 impossibly chic villas. All feature vast open-air bathrooms and amazing outdoor living space, plus muslin-swathed daybeds and a plunge pool. This island is as much a conservation project as a resort, with roaming giant tortoises, exotic birds and a rich marine life. It's bliss for lovers of luxury as well as snorkelling and diving. Wow factor: The vast Villa 11, on the tip of the island, has a private cinema lounge. Go: Book with Turquoise Holidays; call 01494 678400 or visit for more details or email
