Travel Editor TED THORNHILL reveals 5 hidden-gem holiday destinations, from Hydra to Formentera


Make your next break more memorable than ever: Travel Editor TED THORNHILL presents five hidden-gem destinations that usually fly under the radar, from a paradise Greek island to America’s ‘Hollywood of the East’

If you’re stuck for ideas for a truly memorable break, help is at hand.

This is your video guide to five hidden-gem destinations – unsung holiday heroes that usually fly under the radar. 

There’s the incredible car-free island of Hydra – which lies just 90 minutes by ferry from Athens. There’s Formentera, the gorgeous sister island of Ibiza with beaches to rival the Caribbean.

We also turn the spotlight on Marseille, the bad boy of the French Riviera, which Lonely Planet has listed as one of the best cities in Europe to visit in 2023. The guide also recommends diverting from Amsterdam to Utrecht, which is blessed with similarly sleepy canals. We have Hollywood glamour, too. But not the Hollywood you’re thinking of… we bid you welcome to Wilmington in North Carolina – known as the Hollywood of the East.

Hydra is a stunning car-free island that lies just 90 minutes away
