Beaches are Barbados’ forte. Because it’s an island formed mostly by coral, all 92 kilometres of its shores are iced with sugary-white sand. In the north-west, the sand is so fine that it’s earned the title of the platinum coast. Underneath the sparkly emerald waters, you’ve got reefs filled with kaleidoscopic fish, rays and turtles, making it a snorkeler’s paradise.
Cruise and stay holidays to Jamaica take you to the original island retreat. The Caribbean country is packed full of tropical scenes – white-sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and beach bars serving up freshly-fallen coconuts. Head inland, meanwhile, and you’ll discover stunning waterfalls and rivers hidden between banana plantations and lofty mountains.
On a Cruise & Stay holiday to Croatia, you can pace the marble streets of Dubrovnik’s old town, where 17 grand churches sit within metres of each other. Its baroque buildings and palaces have gained iconic status, so it’s no surprise that the place has been UNESCO-rated since 1979. Elsewhere, traditional fishing boats bob alongside yachts in Cavtat’s harbour. And cobbled alleyways lead to a market, cemetery and old houses with sculpted porches.
Gran Canaria is often billed as a miniature continent, and it won’t take you long to see why on a Cruise & Stay holiday here. Rolling hills contrast with sandy beaches, while traditional whitewashed villages are paired with purpose-built tourist havens. Such diversity means crowds have flocked here for hundreds of years – and today, the island is as popular as ever.
With sweeping beaches, jagged mountains and palm-lined streets, Majorca is the jewel of the Balearics. On a Cruise & Stay holiday here, you’ll find ribbons of white sand, curling coves and hidden inlets snaking their way along the coast. Sugar-cube towns pepper the shoreline, interspersed with ancient cathedrals and stylish hotels. You can sip homemade sangria at a seafront tavern, or tuck into a pan of delicious Spanish paella.
An island escape wouldn’t be anything without perfectly-formed beaches, and there are plenty to choose from on a Cruise & Stay holiday to Corfu. Both Glyfada and Alykes Potamos come with Blue Flag strips. From the latter, you can see as far as Albania. But, the beaches aren’t just reserved for sunbathing – there’s also a busy watersports scene. In Gouvia, hire jet-skis and banana boats, or charter a boat to pretty Agni Bay.
Florida’s a tough state to sum up. From theme parks to the Everglades National Park and beaches to big cities, it’s got a lot to shout about. And it’s not nicknamed the Sunshine State for nothing. This place boasts a sub-tropical climate, with its coast washed by the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.
