Summer is approaching and we’re already dreaming of sunning ourselves…
Shorter flights times, less expense and somewhat familiar territory can help make Europe the continent of choice for Brits when choosing a destination for a holiday abroad.
But where do you choose to spend your well-deserved week or two in the sun?
Jet2holidays have come to the rescue with their pick of the best beach holiday destinations for this summer.
Plus, don’t forget you can save £100pp off bookings as well as an extra £25 NHS discount with Jet2holidays here >
The Balearic island of Majorca is number one on the best beach holiday destinations list, and for good reason.
It’s quieter than its partying sister Ibiza but livelier than neighbouring Menorca, giving it the perfect balance for a family holiday as well as a short break with friends.
At under 3 hours’ flight duration from UK airports, this destination is easy to travel to and once you arrive, there’s quite a pick of accommodation…
Jet2holidays have over 200 hotels and apartments to choose from in Majorca, including family-friendly as well as Adults-only, all in fabulous resorts.
While you can relax by the pool or on the pristine beachs, there’s also tonnes of activities for the more adventurous traveller, including theme parks, waterparks and cycling routes.
2. The Algarve, Portugal
Sophisticated, serene and suitably indulging, the Algarve is not to be missed…
Travelling with kids can be a nightmare, especially on a long flight, that’s why this quick-trip to Portugal rather than a long-haul slog can be very-much welcomed. And with no time zone change, you’ll be able to get your holiday started with ease.
If you’re looking for some quiet, relaxing down-time, The Algarve is the place for you. Golden beaches stretched on the southern coastline of Portugal, friendly locals and the option for a spot of golf or sight-seeing if you fancy makes The Algarve the perfect setting for your well-earned break.
We couldn’t miss off the Canaries, could we? The glorious island of Tenerife had to be on the list of this year’s best beach holiday destinations!
Much like Majorca, in Tenerife you will find a mix of nightlife and child-friendly activities. Never-ending coasts of some of the most stunning beaches mean that you can soak up the sun in the most beautiful of surroundings.
Further south than Portugal and the Balearics, Tenerife is a popular choice for Brits and why shouldn’t it be? Fantastic nightlife, superb resorts, as well as swanky shops and fine restaurants make Tenerife an all-rounder – perfect for large groups with mixed tastes or couples who want a bit of everything.
