A-list Destinations with a Difference
Croatia’s island of Hvar has been put on the A-list map over the past few years thanks mainly to Beyonce and Jay-Z. The couple have holidayed on the beautiful Adriatic island and Beyonce even made one of her music videos there. It was also reported that the couple named their daughter after a tree that Beyonce saw there. Blue Ivy was even given an honorary citizenship by the mayor of the island, which boasts stunning beaches, glitzy clubs and resorts and plenty of history with old fortresses and ancient architecture.

Formentera, Spain
Spain’s Balearic Islands of Mallorca, Ibiza and even Menorca are very well known holiday destinations and have been attracting all types of holidaymakers for many years now, from clubbers, to those who love nature and hiking. Little is often said about tiny sister island Formentera though. Home to some of Spain’s best beaches and stunning scenery, celebs such as Michelle Rodriguez and Kate Moss have recently discovered it as a great place to go and get away from the crowds.
Sardinia, Italy
Quaint and charming Sardinia, full of lush green mountains, small medieval villages and secluded coves is also surprisingly attracting A-listers as Naomi Campbell, Leonardo DiCaprio, Peter Crouch, Abbey Clancy and Geri Halliwell, who have all been spotted holidaying on the Mediterranean island in recent years.
