Summer is over, and, if you're anything like us, you're ready for a break. Forget this 'new season, new you lark', we're knackered. 

July and August were a whirlwind of post-work beers, weddings (so many weddings) and fun-packed festivals. It was the best, but now we need a holiday from the holiday. 

It turns out we're not alone. According to Pinterest, one in four people are ready for a break after a hectic summer and have been Pinning their dream beach destinations in their thousands. 

Here are the top 10 most popular chill-out beach destinations... How many have you been to?
