Think Turkey, think sandy beaches and secluded coves, but this hotspot has plenty more strings to its bow. We’re talking everything from spice-laden bazaars to ancient temples. Pick Dalaman, for example, and discover the famous Blue Lagoon. Then there’s livelier Bodrum – home to heaps of history. Or, choose the upmarket resort of Antalya, which is tucked into Turkey’s scenic southwest corner.
Majorca, Ibiza, or Menorca? Whichever balmy Balearic you pick, you’re all set for a sun-soaked break this summer. The biggest of the bunch is beach-bordered Majorca, which ticks off every type of sandy spot you could think of. Then, there’s Ibiza, which pairs its party-hard reputation with a take-it-slow boho scene. Menorca really slows down the pace, though – it’s a perfect pick for families.

Lots of Greece’s islands are ready and waiting for holidaymakers this summer. The country’s biggest names – like Crete, Corfu, Kos, Zante, Santorini and Rhodes – each have their own individual charms, but all of them deliver on the beach front. If you’re after somewhere off the beaten track, the likes of Kefalonia, Skiathos, Preveza and Parga are on the case.

For a tropical island paradise, look no further than the Maldives. White-sand beaches that gently shelve into bright-blue waters are on the cards here. Plus, with 26 natural atolls – otherwise known as coral islands – to pick from, you can spend your getaway island hopping, scuba diving or simply kicking back in a stilted water villa admiring the views. Some islands are only inhabited by a single hotel so peace and quiet is sorted, too.
The Canary Islands top the charts for lots of holidaymakers, and it’s no wonder why. These islands were formed as part of an ancient volcanic eruption, which has left its mark – in the best way – on the landscape. Lanzarote’s Timanfaya National Park is a must-visit, while on Tenerife, Mount Teide is stellar for stargazing. Plus, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria’s semi-desert beaches offer up plenty of sunbathing space. For a more sedate pace, pick pretty La Palma.

Grab your snorkel, swimming costume and sun cream – holidays to Egypt serve up kaleidoscopic coral reefs, World War II wrecks and dozens of white-sand beaches. Sharm El Sheikh’s sands, for example, unfurl for 60 kilometres along the coast. Or, pick Hurghada, and one of its secluded hotels along the shoreline. Meanwhile, Marsa Alam flaunts a 70-metre-high coral wall that’s home to giant turtles.
Our holidays to Egypt >
Madeira has a well-deserved reputation for its flower-filled landscape – it’s even been dubbed the Floating Garden. Head to the coast, and you’ll find scooped-out coves, pebble-peppered bays, and the occasional sweep of sand. Meanwhile, footprint-free Porto Santo floats just 40 kilometres north of Madeira. It’s much smaller than its sister island, but still boasts a 10-kilometre stretch of sand for sunbathing.
Cyprus is known as the island of love, and it’s captured the hearts of thousands of holidaymakers over the years. We reckon that might have something to do with its necklace of Blue Flag beaches – 64 of them, to be precise – and its endless historical sites. Plus, the temperatures during summer hover in the low 30s, so you’re all set for sunbathing.
Our holidays to Cyprus >
Think sunny summer holiday, think Spain. This country boasts more sand-skirted Costas than you could shake a beach towel at. From the Costa Blanca’s pearly beaches to the Costa Dorada’s gilded shores, whichever Spanish gem you pick, you’re all set for an escape that’ll sweep you off your feet. If you can tear yourself away from the beach, tuck in to some tapas, or sip Sangria in the sunshine.
Our holidays to Mainland Spain >
Pretty villages, cool cities and world-famous cuisine – holidays to Italy tick all the boxes. Plus, this small-but-mighty country boasts more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other on the planet. In the north, the snow-dusted Dolomites flaunt powdery ski runs and ethereal lakes. Moving down, Rome makes its mark with the Colosseum, Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. Or, for some of the most scenic beaches in Italy, head to Puglia – the stiletto heel to Italy’s boot.
1,185 islands float off the shores of Croatia’s mainland, so it’s no wonder that this Eastern European gem is popular with island hoppers. Whether you choose to base yourself in terracotta-topped Dubrovnik, or cast off to an iconic islet like Brac, you’ll find yourself reaching for your camera. Dip beneath the clear-as-glass Adriatic Sea, and you’ll see that the underwater sights are just as captivating.
Our holidays to Croatia >
Morocco’s made for beach breaks with a twist. Agadir’s sand-carpeted coast is offset by the culture-crammed city of Marrakech – complete with colourful souks – and the dunes of the Sahara Desert, too. Or, you can choose to base yourself in Taghazout. This up-and-coming former fishing village deals in authentic Moroccan breaks.
Our holidays to Morocco >
This Caribbean island serves up sun-drenched beach holidays and active escapes in equal measure. Spend your morning sunning yourself on the sand, then hike up one of the Piton mountains in the afternoon. Or, dip under the waves for a snorkelling session then zip-line through the rainforest. Anything and everything’s on the cards on a trip to St Lucia.

Championship golf courses? Tick. Sandy coastline? Tick. No time difference? Tick. And that’s just the start of what Portugal’s got up its sleeve. Choose the ever-popular Algarve, and you can opt for a sleepy break in a fishing village, or a bustling escape complete with plenty of bars and restaurants. A city break in Lisbon’s on the cards, too – think ancient temples, cobbled plazas, and waterfront eateries.
Our holidays to Portugal >
Vine-crossed valleys, culture-packed cities and tucked-away towns – they’re all on the agenda when you set sail with TUI River Cruises. This summer, you can board TUI Maya for trips that take in the best of Switzerland and Germany’s riverside line-up. Plus, you’ll get shore experience credit included in your booking, as well as all your meals with drinks.
Cloud-brushing skyscrapers and linen-white beaches? This classy combo is the reason Dubai’s a favourite with high-life holidaymakers. Daytrips to the desert are on the cards, too, if you like to go off the beaten track. If shopping is more your scene, the city’s supersized malls have you more than covered. Plus, Dubai’s got plenty of theme parks to keep thrill-seekers satisfied.
For a small island, Malta delivers big on the holiday front. Its capital city, Valletta, has bagged UNESCO-listed status, thanks to the likes of 16th-century St John’s Cathedral and its grand palazzo. Its coastline is worth shouting about, too. It’s a pick ‘n’ mix of rocky coves carved out of cliff faces, and crescent moon-shaped sweeps of sand.
Our holidays to Malta >
Barbados’ western shore has been nicknamed the Platinum Coast, because the sand is so pure. Altogether, the island tots up more than 92 kilometres of beaches, edged by jewel-toned waters – so you won’t be disappointed if you’re after a beachy break. Plus, Barbados is famous for its rum making, so make sure you try a tipple while you’re there – you can even tour a famous distillery if you fancy.
Our holidays to Barbados >
Whichever way you look, the scenery in Antigua wouldn’t be out of place on the front of a postcard. Turn towards the coast, and you’ll be treated to sand-striped shores. Face inland, and colourful clutches of townhouses and bright-green countryside come into view. It’s a sailing hotspot, too, so if you fancy a boat trip, there’s no better place.
Our holidays to Antigua >
For a luxury holiday, look no further than Mauritius. This dreamy island flaunts all the tropical favourites – bright-blue waters, talc-white beaches and high-end resorts, but there’s much more to it than that. The island is ringed by one of the biggest unbroken barrier reefs in the world, making it perfect for snorkelling for scuba diving. Plus, there are 800-metre-high mountains and forests to explore.
Our holidays to Mauritius >
Iceland is unlike any other holiday destination. Its scenery game is unmatched – more waterfalls than you could count, cloud-brushing glaciers, flocks of puffins – it’s all in Iceland’s locker. Plus, visit during the summer, and you’ll be treated to almost unending daylight, so there’s no limit to how much you can explore. Reykjavik’s city sights hold their own, too – Iceland’s capital boasts a great foodie scene and lots of bars.

It might not be Christmas just yet, but we’re making festive plans to operate holidays to Lapland this winter.
Santa, husky sled rides and the famous Northern Lights? It must be a holiday to Lapland. This winter favourite in northernmost Finland is set deep inside the Arctic Circle, so you can expect snow-covered forests, cosy log cabins and plenty of wild reindeer. Plus, if you’re short on time, you can tick off the country’s best bits in under 24-hours, thanks to our daytrip itineraries. Flights from London only take about three and a half hours.
Our holidays to Lapland >
Grenada’s one of the Caribbean’s smaller siblings, and it’s really laidback. In classically Caribbean style, its beaches are the jewels in its crown. Grand Anse’s rum bar-backed beach is the most popular stretch, but you’ve got lots of littler options to choose from, too, if you’re after something even more off the radar. The island’s interior, meanwhile, is loaded with the likes of cascading waterfalls and wildlife-filled jungles.
Our holidays to Grenada >
Gibraltar is something of a home away from home, but with better weather, and Spanish-style beaches. Expect familiar sights like fish and chip shops rubbing shoulders with top-drawer Mediterranean beaches. Gibraltar’s got its fair share of history, too. You can hike up to the top of the Rock of Gibraltar to take in the views, or head into the maze of tunnels that wind their way through the rock itself – they were first dug by British soldiers during the Napoleonic Wars.
Our holidays to Gibraltar >
Jersey’s the biggest of the Channel Islands. Its coastline is a charming jumble of shell-shaped coves, sandy bays, and dramatic, craggy cliffs. So, whether you want to kick back on the sand, or take in some seaside scenery on a clifftop walk, you’re all set. Head over to St Helier, the island’s capital, for the likes of tasty street food and boutique shops.
