The White Island


Visit Ibiza before the last weekend in May – when most big clubs throw their opening parties – and you’ll find temperatures in the high teens but its beaches much quieter than usual, and its restaurants largely filled with locals. New hotel Hostal La Torre, on the rocky promontory of Cap Negret, is an ideal place from which to enjoy the quieter side of island life. Seventeen simple whitewashed rooms cluster around a plant-filled courtyard garden, but you’ll likely spend most of your time on its sunny terrace. Though a great breakfast spot it’s particularly alluring at dusk, when fashionable couples and friends gather for cocktails and tapas as the sun disappears into the shimmering Balearic Sea. Spend your days reclining on the many lovely stretches of sand, or making the most of the fine climate with alfresco meals served by Ibicenco kitchens. Beachfront Can Pujol makes the best rice and seafood dishes on the island (Carretera Port des Torrent; paella from £21), while in Ibiza Old Town the top choice is Comidas San Juan. Tucked down one of the atmospheric city’s stone-flagged alleyways, this family-run tavern is fantastic value and always full of friendly Ibizans (mains from £6).

Northeast India is the country's most overlooked corner – follow us on a Great Escape here to see rhinoceroses and meet hill-country villagers whose not-so-distant ancestors were headhunters. New Zealand's North Island may be better known, but using a campervan to get around opens up unforeseen vistas and possibilities. In other features, Northern Ireland proves to be a surprising gastronomic destination, while Casablanca's status as Morocco's largest city – yet one that features on few travellers' itineraries – means its Art Deco-era treasures hide in plain sight.
