The very best of Mediterranean Tourism
Live the life of absolute luxury on the Mediterranean coast!
Those that haven't yet stood on the golden shores of the Mediterranean Sea can be assured; the images conjured by the mere mention of the Mediterranean are only as impressive as the coast itself. Endless golden beaches, lush vegetation, fantastically flavoursome food, wild mountains plummeting into the azure sea and ancient ruins appear all around the coast line, and whether you are looking for an action packed water sports holiday or blissfully romantic getaway in sensational scenery, a Mediterranean holiday can provide it all.
Having said this, regardless of how many times you have stood with your feet in the warm Mediterranean wash with the soft sand between your toes, there is always another corner to explore. There are a staggering number of cultures, landscapes and monuments of ancient civilizations found around the Mediterranean Sea, from the modern beach resorts of the Spanish Costas to the ruin strewn coasts of the Turkish Mediterranean or the Greek Mediterranean islands, from the peace of the coastlines of Croatia and Southern Italy to the vibrance and excitement of northern Morocco or Egypt.

The Mediterranean changes with every season. Mediterranean holidays in the summer months are as you might imagine; long, lazy days stretched out in the sunshine, with daily temperatures soaring towards the 40°C mark, and fantastically long evenings where the sea breeze keeps the balmy air fresh. The august months are a great time to beat the crowds on Mediterranean beaches. Conditions remain warm, facilities open and yet the crowds are sparse. Golf holidays to the Mediterranean thrive throughout the year, but it is during the winter months that you can really have the pick of the tee-off times, and during the spring, when the Mediterranean vegetation is in full bloom, walking and riding holidays to the Mediterranean are simply unforgettable. With each season comes a new harvest too, causing the traditional cuisine to change from month to month.
