A study of 2,000 UK travellers found 32 per cent look forward to a beach holiday that allows them to sit back and relax by sunbathing, reading or sleeping in.
But despite half admitting they feel refreshed at the end of a holiday where they have done little, 15 per cent end up feeling guilty for putting their feet up.
While 26 per cent feel they are in need of a chilled holiday to recharge their batteries after a busy time.
And 61 per cent have even signed up to excursions or activities they didn’t really want to do in order to show their social media followers they did more than simply sit by the pool.  
But 47 per cent sometimes feel like they need a holiday – just to recover from their trip.
A spokesperson for Expedia, which commissioned the research, said: “When so many say they sometimes need a holiday just to recover from their holiday, something’s gone wrong.
“There’s no prize for doing the most on holiday. What’s important is making memories while you’re away and feeling recharged when you’re back”
According to British holidaymakers in need of a rest, the optimum amount of time to spend chilling out on your holiday is 40 per cent.
But 24 per cent feel pressure to entertain their friends and family on their break, and 22 per cent feel they need to be productive.
