If the thought of spending a week or more in a beautiful destination, walking along a picturesque beach and indulging in scrumptious cuisine fills you with glee, it might be time to start planning a fun break away with your friends or family.
If, however, you are unsure about the best spot to book, check out the seven-holiday destinations you must visit this summer.
If you have always wanted to visit Greece, you will be spoilt for beautiful destinations, such as historic Athens or scenic Kefalonia. However, if you want to embark on an unforgettable summer holiday, take a well-deserved trip to Crete.
Greece’s largest island offers a perfect mix of historic sites, cosmopolitan life, and natural beauty so there will be something for everyone. Plus, you can choose from multiple luxurious villas in Greece, which are located near stunning beaches, coves, and villages.
If you have never heard of Bacalar before, you will wonder why when you land in the beautiful town, which is located in south-eastern Mexico. One natural wonder that will be worth the trip alone is the Lake of Seven Colours, which features crystal clear water and stunning white sand.
It is also a superb location for those who want to enjoy a spot of snorkelling or diving. Also, unlike many other destinations located across the country, Bacalar has managed to retain its Mexican charm, so it is an ideal destination to visit if you want to immerse yourself in the nation’s traditions and culture.
If you want to beat the crowds while enjoying a beautiful backdrop, Calabria can be a perfect pick. The region might be growing in popularity year on year, but it isn’t a trap for tourists in comparison to the likes of Rome, Milan or the Amalfi Coast.
With beautiful beaches rivalling the Caribbean, and rustic Italian charm, you will wonder why the destination isn’t more popular with holidaymakers from across the world. You also will not be bored, as you can explore numerous historic landmarks, such as 15th-century castles and Norman cathedrals.
To enjoy glorious sunshine this summer, Antalya should be at the top of your bucket list for 2019. Whether you are travelling with friends or family members, you will have endless fun at the southern Turkish resort, which is well-regarded for its exquisite beaches, cool waterparks, and pools. The local food will also ensure your getaway is bursting with flavour, as you can dine at many authentic Turkish restaurants that serve up tasty dishes every day, such as:
Lahmacun (Turkish pizza)
Manti (Turkish dumplings)
Corba (A soup)
Dominican Republic, Caribbean
If you are willing to embark on a long-haul flight to reach a destination, you shouldn’t overlook the Dominican Republic, which is the second largest Caribbean island. You also would be smart to explore its many beaches, as the Atlantic Ocean is located towards the north of the island, while you’ll find the Caribbean Sea to the south.
When you can manage to tear yourself away from the Dominican’s many picturesque beaches, you should explore its many national parks, such as:
Los Haitises National Park
Parque Nacional Valle Nuevo Constanza
Jaragua National Park
Natioal Park of the East
Santo Domingo National Botanic Garden
If you are in much need of a relaxing break, which is filled with sun, sea, and sand, start booking flights to Menorca for this summer. The unspoiled island is ideal for families, as it offers stunning blue waters, natural walking trails, and a wide array of restaurants and bars to choose from.
Those looking for superb water sports should also visit Menorca, which is the perfect destination for paddle boarding, kayaking, jet skiing and speedboating, which can be a great way to cool down when in the summer sun. Plus, you can indulge in yummy Spanish cuisine and fresh seafood, such as Caldereta de Langosta, which can be complemented with a glass of Pomeda or Sangria. Perfection.
Florence is easily one of the most beautiful destinations in all of Italy, which is a testament to its architecture and exceptional views. It is, therefore, an ideal destination for a summer break with your family or friends.
Complementing the backdrop are its many museums and impressive sculptures. After all, you cannot visit Florence and not explore the city’s exquisite works of art, such as Michelangelo’s David in Galleria dell'Accademia.
