The Costas in Spain have been a hit with holidaymakers for decades, and Costa Dorada, in particular, really knows how to serve up a great summer break. The region’s got attractions for families, couples and culture vultures alike. There’s a long sandy beach in Salou backed by a bustling promenade, shops and restaurants, plus the huge PortAventura theme park is right next door. There’s also the Aquopolis Waterpark and Bonavista Market, where shoppers can snap up bargains. Want to be in the middle of all the action? Stay at the Hotel H10 Salou Princess, which is close to both the beach and PortAventura theme park. And, with Barcelona within daytripping distance, you can explore historic sights like Gaudi’s legendary Sagrada Familia.
If you’re looking for the ultimate couples’ getaway in Europe, look no further than Santorini.

Santorini also delivers on beaches. Find a spot for your towel on the volcanic sands of Kamari, a Blue Flag beach framed by dramatic cliffs.

High summer is the best time to enjoy the picture-perfect landscape on this Greek island, with everything from Cypress trees and olive groves to wild flowers and secret beaches to admire. When it comes to where to stay, Corfu is an island of two halves. The north, home to the resorts of Gouvia and San Stefanos, is a little more low-key, with secluded white-sand beaches, nature trails and family-run candlelit tavernas. Head south, meanwhile, to enjoy party town Kavos, which is packed with bars, restaurants and activities, or the resorts of Sidari and Roda. Once you’ve had enough of Kavos, these spots have a few lively nightlife options of their own. And there’s Corfu Town, which lines up fortresses, ancient churches and museums. If you’re visiting the island in a big group, stay in one of the villas in our handpicked Villas Collection. Set in peaceful locations and nestled in the countryside, most of them have their own pools and sun-facing terraces for you to enjoy. And, you can take your pick from rustic retreats like Eleni Villa or big mansion-style lodges like Villa Scheria.
Croatia offers up everything from ancient sights and famous filming spots to secluded islands and an entire national park full of lakes and waterfalls. Game of Thrones fans should head to Dubrovnik to explore the walls of King’s Landing, and visit ancient palaces and Baroque-style churches. Or, make tracks for the Istrian Riviera in the north of the country, which boasts the famous lakes and mountains of Plitvice National Park and an unspoilt shoreline. Over on the Dalmatian Coast, you can do a spot of island hopping and tick off A-list hangout Hvar, beach-filled Brac, and the old towns of Makarska. It’s easy to take a daytrip between the islands if you’re staying on one. When it comes to where to stay, Croatia’s got a mix of boutique hideaways and big resorts to choose from.
