Last-Minute Summer Diving

  • Mexico
  • Grenada
  • Komodo
  • Mozambique
  • Philippines
  • Northern Sulawesi

Scorching one minute, torrential rain the next; the Great British Summer is about as fickle as the relationships on Love Island (only two weeks left, thank god). But rather than wait to see what Mother Nature throws at us next, we suggest trading in for an exotic new destination. From diving…

We've cracked hundreds of fortune cookies, consulted the stars and searched far and wide for Doc Brown (of Back to the Future fame), yet still can't predict the next few months for Britain (or this week's lottery numbers). We can, however, give you the inside track on the latest new…

Beat the System

  • Grenada
  • Seychelles
  • Indonesia
  • Maldives
  • Mexico
  • Gozo

Question: do you consider yourself a canny operator (*taps nose and winks*)? Are you willing to buck the trend, go off-piste, roll the dice as it were? Well it's time to channel your inner wheeler dealer, à la Del Boy Trotter (perhaps without the dodgy gold medallions and morally ambiguous…

The Treasure Islands

  • Socorro Island
  • Mexico
  • Cocos Island
  • Costa Rica
  • Ecuador & the Galapagos

What if we told you that Treasure Island was real? That hidden in the remote corners of the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean lies an immense and intoxicating treasure trove. Okay, so there might not be booty but what those fabled buccaneers (read: we) did encounter was much, much better.…

Blue belts. Nope, we haven't taken up karate and we're not advertising a new fashion trend, we are in fact referring to the UK Government announcing the expansion of protected coastal 'blue belt' marine areas surrounding the British Isles. Another excellent step on the ladder to conserving…

Ever wish you could magic up a few extra days of holiday? Well, actually in May you can. And no, we're not suggesting there are now 375 days in the year or that we've secretly located the DeLorean from Back to the Future. With two Bank Holidays, if you take 14 days of holiday in between, you…
