As the new season of Love Island hit our screens this week, we thought we would use our #HolidayChat to celebrate all things island holidays – and as an excuse for another lengthy discussion in the office about the show.
We don’t know about you, but we are a little obsessed with it here at icelolly.com HQ – can we talk about poor Alex for a moment?! We digress, it’s all about those holiday vibes and getting us in the mood for a summer of sun, sea and sangria.
There were some brutal decisions to be made about who you'd take with you. We’re with Michaela and would pick the dog!
I would go by myself, at the moment everything is getting quite stressful and I want nothing more than some piece and quiet with a good book #holidaychat— Face The Fun (@facethefun) June 6, 2018
I'd go with my mum and I would go to Bhutan purely because I know we'd never be able to afford that together so that would be my top choice #HolidayChat— Cat Higgy (@CatHiggyTravels) June 6, 2018

Food seems to be the order of the day; what happened to living off the land, guys?

A never ending book (keeps the fire going after I’ve read it too), some tweezers (hours of fun!) and a lighter (I can’t imagine me getting a fire going otherwise!) #holidaychat— Face The Fun (@facethefun) June 6, 2018
Ibiza was a very popular answer, and we can see why as there are such beautiful beaches and sunsets there.
A3) Barbados! The food, the people and the best beaches #holidaychat— Char (@char_x0) June 6, 2018
Ibizaaaaaa booked through you guys a few years ago. Best holiday I’ve ever had. 0 aggro from anything.— tom (@sfc_nipper) June 6, 2018
3) We went on a Caribbean cruise last year, but I can't remember all the places we stopped! Grand turk was beautiful though! L #HolidayChat— The Blossom Twins (@TheBlossomTwins) June 6, 2018
A complete getaway. Feeling like you're the only few people on the planet! When I visited the less populated parts of #Iceland it was like we were totally alone and it felt so good! #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/QAP5oAyIAg— M I C H A E L A (@HeyImMichaela) June 6, 2018
A4) just jumping in here!— Seeking Sammy (@SeekingSammy) June 6, 2018
But I love the chilled vibes, the feeling of ‘getting away’, beaches and coves.
Also the fact you can get almost anywhere on the island to see it all!
Clear seas, sun, cocktails, exploring. What more do you need #HolidayChat— Tamzin (@TamzinSwann) June 6, 2018
We love seeing snaps of your travels so this is our favourite part of #HolidayChat!
Kos, Greece Staying up all night to watch the sunrise with friends had to be something I’ll never forget. We actually ended up swimming out to sea to watch it properly #holidaychat pic.twitter.com/dJAamadRHz— Face The Fun (@facethefun) June 6, 2018
A5) Back in April we got the ferry to the island of #Capri for a day trip from Sorrento. Who knew #Italy had such gems . Me in front of a giant, naturally formed rock arch #HolidayChat pic.twitter.com/U4nODcmcSY— Josh B (@jb_new) June 6, 2018

A5) #holidaychat This is one I took in Zante, supposedly criminals used this cove to smuggle goods back in the day, but this boat came under difficulty & washed up on the beach, love Greek history pic.twitter.com/5bvNkucwY3— Travel Agent Source (@NewAgentSource) June 6, 2018
A5) #holidaychat this a nice picture I took of a Heron when I went to the #Maldives on a gap year, it was a stunning island called Kuredu but it did not sell #Mythos, it was still the best though pic.twitter.com/Krdy7A6itD— Friends Of Pefkos (@friendsofpefkos) June 6, 2018
