Lounge under the pristine billowing cotton of seaside cabanas, come undone with tousled sun kissed waves, gaze at flamingo sunsets, indulge in a bare foot, bare faced chic! This is beach therapy, where doing absolutely nothing, is doing something.
Hamptons, New York, USA
Beach style just got upgraded. The Hamptons are a fashionable beachside retreat where city brogues are swapped for bathers and haute couture for hoodies.

Insiders tip, people watch at celebrity haunt Nick and Toni’s!
Do you think you know Cabo? Is your vision of Cabo thronging with bikini topped, denim shorted fun lovers, thriving on a tight schedule of dance, drink, repeat? Time for a rethink. Steal away to San Jose Del Cabo, a more authentic version of what this beach side resort used to offer. Meet the people, eat from the land but most importantly enjoy a new beach experience. Playa Hotelera, brings nature back to the beach. Don’t expect a celebrity hosted champagne spray party, but marvel at the scenery and the rich birdlife. Insiders tip, swim elsewhere!
Formentera, Balearic Islands, Spain
Unspoiled and more rugged than it’s siblings of Ibiza and Majorca, but no less sparkly, Formentera was the most original 70’s hippie haunt and nothing much has changed. The beaches are pristine, the nightlife is low key and everyone forgot shoes…Attracting the super famous, who want to hideaway from the relentless energy needed in the party capital of Europe, Formentera is something of a well kept secret. Find a private cove, sip rose and eat paella!
If life is better at the beach, how does it feel in the ocean? Waikiki Beach was the birthplace of modern day surfing, so what better place to start. Don’t take it too seriously, try a few different water sports until you find your groove. Whilst Waikiki might have a certain glitz, the overall vibe is relaxed and offbeat!
