Celebrity summer hangouts
We all need a holiday from time to time, and the rich and famous are no exception. Even with a life full of glitz and glamour, they need a week in the sun to chill out sometimes, just like the rest of us! In fact, it doesn’t seem like a week goes by without seeing another sun-soaked celeb in the papers. So where do they like to go? Read on to find out the favourite resorts of the stars…
With the hottest beaches and coolest parties, it’s no surprise that Ibiza is crammed with wall-to-wall celebs. From famous DJs such as Skrillex (pictured) flying over to wow crowds with his sets, to Tulisa from X Factor hanging out on the beach, you’ll be hard pressed to visit this uber-cool island over the summer and not spot a famous face or two.
Though the clubs in San Antonio are a hotbed of world famous DJs and celebrities, that’s not the only place you’ll find the stars. Elsewhere on the island, A-listers tend to congregate around Playa d’en Bossa, so head there if you want to catch a glimpse of a famous icon. If you get tired of gawking at the likes of Kate Moss and Jade Jagger on the beach (as if), then head to the ultra-cool Jockey Club, which has more celebrity patrons than you’ll be able to fill a private jet with!
With a beautiful rugged coastline, endless sunshine and a laid-back way of life, the Algarve is a popular destination for all those who want some well-deserved R&R, and celebrities are no exception.
This stretch of coast is full of world-class spas, which have proved a hit with the likes of Nelly Furtado and José Mourinho, former manager of Chelsea football club. Just something to bear in mind if you ever decide to pop in for a mud wrap!
Some celebrities love the place so much, they have even bought themselves a little holiday home there, so they can pop over whenever they like – Ronan Keating, Teddy Sheringham and Chris Evans all own villas in the Algarve. However, superstar Cliff Richard has gone one step further and bought an entire vineyard! I wonder if he would mind us stopping by to sample some of the merchandise…?
Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
The Red Sea Riviera is another firm favourite with celebs. Famous fans of Sharm el Sheikh include Angelina Jolie, Colin Farrell and Sharon Stone.
If you fancy a bit of celebrity spotting, make sure you wander past the Savoy Hotel, as English footballer John Terry and R’n’B star Craig David have been known to make stop off in this luxurious 5 star resort. It is also the hotel of choice for Torchwood star John Barrowman when he’s in town. A keen diver, he likes to practice his scuba skills in the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea.
