Crete holidays in November are somewhat unpredictable weather-wise, but as long as you pack a light jacket, you're guaranteed a fantastic holiday. You see, if there's ever a day when the sun doesn't decide to shine, you'll have so much to see and do. You could stay in Lassithi and visit Dikteon Andron, the cave where mythical Zeus was said to be born, or book accommodation in Chania, one of the oldest cities in Crete. Its rich and tumultuous history is fascinating, and its traditional architecture can't fail to amaze. Visit Venetian and Turkish monuments, or head to the harbour with its beautiful lighthouse and old quarter.
Tunisia promises a feast for the senses, and an exotic holiday without the long-haul flight. After just a few hours on the plane, you could be wandering around spice markets or bartering in a traditional souk. The weather in North Africa is just perfect at this time of year, allowing you to make the most of your stay. Consider Tunis if you want to enjoy the sights of the city, or Sousse when in search of historical sites. For beach holidays, look no further than Port El Kantaoui, or head to Hammamet to find beautiful Jasmine souvenirs. One thing's certain, Tunisia holidays in November promise no end of excitement.
When you want sunshine and water sports on holidays in November, there's surely no better spot than Cyprus. November in the region of Paphos remains pleasantly warm, so you can still enjoy swimming in the Mediterranean Sea. But as the bustling crowds of summer have all but disappeared, sightseeing is also a pleasure. Go hiking in the Troodos Mountains, take a trip to the famous Paphos Mosaics, or wander around the recently harvested olive trees. There are so many wonderful destinations to choose from, whether you want to play golf in Secret Valley or relax in Kato Paphos, the old quarter of Paphos town.
The Canary Islands are just perfect for holidays in November, enjoying warm, balmy weather and temperatures of up to 23°C. Whether you want to travel to El Hierro, Gran Canaria, La Gomera or Lanzarote, you won't have to avoid the beach this autumn.

Boasting a fascinating variety of volcanoes, forests, beaches and mountains, it's ideal for lovers of nature. Book a quaint cottage or villa here, and you could swim in the natural pools of Pozo de las Calcosas, or discover the island's capital Valverde, formed by the eruption of El Tesoro.
