From beaches with stunning colours to epic music festivals under scorching sunshine, we round up four reasons to flee the dark and damp this month.
This beautiful and boho town on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula is a magnet for A-listers - and it's not hard to see why. There’s knockout warm seas, barefoot chic beachside bars, and the freshest of seafood and zesty Mexican tacos. And if you really want to follow the jet set, head to Papaya Playa, a pop up hotel that decided to stay popped up, whose dreamy beach plays host to the occasional Victoria Secrets photo shoot. Yes, really. With temperatures hitting the 30cs and brilliant blue skies, it's a sure fire hit for sun seekers ready to bare all this month.

Gili Islands, Lombok, Indonesia
If you're looking for flirty action beneath endless sunshine, you can't go wrong with these three tiny castaway isles - favourites along the banana backpacker trail. For late night raves and magic mushroom shakes there's Gili Trawangan - whose waters teem with turtles and kaleidoscopic fish - while Gili Meno is all about long languid lunches and romantic trysts beneath a sweep of stars. Gili Air, meanwhile, has arguably the best beaches of the trio with a burgeoning nightlife scene.
