Commence drooling over these ten stunning spots, including *cough* Tiran Island *cough*. Enjoy it while you still can...

This is by no means a comprehensive list, but just our pick of photos we love. If you know of  you know of any Instagrammers we should be following, please leave your suggestions in a comment - it would be most useful for toilet-time, keeping busy during morning commutes and generally distracting ourselves from thinking about real life.
