Are you properly in the mood for summer now? Frankly, we’re bored of our winter woollies and are desperate to dive into a sun dress, like now. And thanks to the sight of Kate Hudson frolicking in the sea today, Grazia Daily is pining for a kaftan, a bikini, and a beach – specifically a Mexican beach, since you asked. The pregnant actress is currently sunning herself in Punta Mita, Mexico with rocker beau Matthew Bellamy and she’s got us investigating our own A-list style holiday. For research purposes only, of course...ahem.
And just look at this beauty we’ve found! Isla Mujeres is surely Mexico’s best kept secret, a coastal paradise away from the glaring lights of Cancun, so why not make like K.Hud herself and spend lazy days on the tranquil tropical island? Honestly, we can’t imagine a better place to swing in a hammock above the powder-soft sand...sigh. Oh, and get this: it’s just 7km long and barely 1km wide. Cute! As for where to rest your head, the fantastic Villa Rolandi, a stunning beachside hotel and spa, is the place to be (www.villarolandi.com). The hotel lies between the turquoise Caribbean Sea and the Lagoon Makax making the surrounding views especially spectacular. And if it's good enough for Kate...
If you’re after some beach time with a twist, hop over to Isla Holbox. In July and August every year, enormous whale sharks congregate off the coast and you could swim among them! Yes, really. And if these magnificent creatures aren’t enough to satisfy your wildlife needs, you may even spot a manta ray, the largest ray in the world, as well as flamingos, pelicans and other exotic birds which the island’s shallow lagoon hosts. After so many exciting adventures, the best place to crash is the gorgeous Casa Sandra Hotel where every piece of furniture is hand-made (www.casasandra.com). Spoil yourself at the spa or go kayaking, kite boarding and wind surfing in the clear, warm waters outside your beach front room.
If this sounds good to you, we're here to make your dreams come true! Why not talk to Grazia Travel Club by filling in the form here or giving us a call on 020 7426 9896? And get those bikinis at the ready!
