Once you’ve seen the light, the sunsets and the scenery of the island’s north west, you’ll feel as thought you’ve fallen into a postcard come to life. With crystal clear and calm water, it’s also a swimmer’s dream – and lovers of wine will be happy to hear it’s the home of vineyards.
Who you’ll meet
The north west is home to an eclectic mix of artists, hippies and A-listers who’ve made homes in the secluded hills. It’s also popular with wellness experts, healers and yoga enthusiasts, who find the natural elements of the area ideal to perfect their practices.
When to visit
Not surprisingly, the north west of the island is a summer hotspot due to its picture perfect sunsets and swimming conditions. However the chilly months also put on a pretty impressive performance, with February bringing the beautiful blooms of almond blossoms.
