Island time is the best time

If only we could bottle those carefree, guilt-free vibes of an island holiday and save them for a rainy day. We could all use a generous dose of vitamin sea and a prolonged prescription to island time: where the clocks seemingly stand still, and the schedules, stresses and screen time of everyday life disappear.

An island holiday ticks all the boxes for today’s wary traveller: remote, secluded and tropical location, where social distancing is the norm and the sun, sand and sea lull the soul back to a healthy, unhurried pace. It’s time to set the out-of-office to island time, and escape to a place where the only Monday blues are the lapping waves and the sky above.
