This was Phil Clarke’s second visit to the island break, after visiting to write an article for the Evening Standard in 2016.

In 2017 he visited again, in his new role as Travel Editor at the Handbook - a lifestyle website read mainly by women aged 25-35 years in London, focusing on food, drink, travel and lifestyle, which sends a daily email to just shy of 100,000 Londoners.
