We rented a car and went for a drive around the island. Incredible views that my photography really cannot do justice. Near-vertical cliffs with waterfalls, winding roads, picturesque white houses perched in improbable spots, lush subtropical forest, vast seaside views, etc etc.

Mountains, greenery and water is an unbeatable combination. And then maybe a touch of fog or dramatic clouds for added atmosphere. All the most beautiful places I can remember combine these. (Past favourites include Cornwall and Scotland.)
