On your marks... Ideas for a sporting (or sport avoiding) summer

Rumour has it‌ ‌that a particular sporting bandwagon is rolling into town this summer. If, like us, you missed out on tickets, the dilemma is this: stay in the UK watching the whole thing unfold on telly but secretly knowing that it’s not really the same as being at the venues; or take a more Original stance and actually indulge in your favourite disciplines some place else, safe in the knowledge that you can watch the highlights on the box every evening, cocktail in hand.


Santorini – Greece Unlikely you’ll smash any 100 metre butterfly records in one of the glorious infinity pools on Santorini, but the view is a bit nicer. The island itself is one of the most spectacular in the world, with dazzling whitewashed villages clinging to towering cliffs that plunge straight into a turquoise sea. For more information, call Rosie Whitefield

Dolomites – Italy The Alps in summer are hugely under-rated. Granted, cycling here involves more uphill pedalling than at the Velodrome, but what goes up... Stay at the charming familyrun Rosa Alpina to enjoy Michelinstarred food that’s completely justified after all that exertion. For more information, call Olivia Buxton

Wakatobi – Indonesia Tom Daley can keep his forward two-and-a-half somersaults with a double twist. Give us crystal clear warm waters and baby green turtles any time. Wakatobi is a laidback but luxurious place to stay, with the waters and reefs surrounding the hotel home to a mere 400 types of coral and 700 species of ďŹ sh. For more information, call Neill Ghosh

Okavango Delta – Botswana Greenwich Park and the dressage, or riding through the beautiful Okavango Delta with the ‘Big Five’ and staying overnight in immaculate private bush camps? No contest. Exploring the Delta on horseback means you can canter with herds of buffalo and zebra or sit quietly in the saddle as your horse grazes with a family of giraffe. For more information, call Fiona Parker

Dalmatian Coast – Croatia Great British sailing hopeful Ben Ainslie is certainly easy on the eye, but there are even more beautiful people lounging about on yachts off Croatia’s stunning Dalmatian Coast. There are also 1,103 miles of coastline and 1,185 islands – many of them uninhabited – to explore. For more information, call Olga Pavlova
