Devon beach holidays

Devon beach holidays

Set within the south west of England, Devon is a beautiful county combining stunning coastline with the wild beauty of both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks. Part of the coast is on the South West Coastal Path, so it is a perfect county for walking as well as relaxing by the beach, exploring, sightseeing or just shopping and enjoying the many restaurants and cafés on the beachfronts.

Italian Riviera Seaside Towns

Italian Riviera Seaside Towns

One of Italy's prettiest and most popular stretches of coastline is the coast of the Liguria region in northwestern Italy, known as the Italian Riviera. Liguria starts at the Gulf of Poets, or the Bay of La Spezia, just beyond Tuscany, and continues to the border of France. By Martha Bakerjian

Santorini Beach Holidays

Santorini Beach Holidays

A paradise for honeymooners and lovers, a popular stop-over for cruise ships and, of course, the famous view of the caldera with its white and blue houses and churches perched atop the rock face, Santorini is one of—if not the—most famous of the Greek islands. There aren’t a plethora of beaches in Santorini, yet don’t let that put you off, nor be fooled. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what is on offer in this magical place. By Rebecca Hall

Seaside holidays in Llandudno

Seaside holidays in Llandudno

WLlandudno, North Wales: it’s a far cry from the bustle of the city, instead spoilt for shores, unchanged for a century, and filled with little cafés where you can while a morning, afternoon – heck you could spend a whole day just breathing in that tasty sea air. But know that this Victorian seaside town isn’t your standard ‘Victorian’ seaside town. The rock won’t break your teeth, the scenery really is that gorgeous, and there aren’t too many bare-chested British men (sorry guys). No, Llandudno’s architecture is pretty and its pastel-coloured houses even more so; its promenade and pier (the longest in the country, might I add) speak proudly of the period they come from. All in all, a beach holiday in Llandudno might be just what you need. By Sophie

Ibiza's best beaches

Ibiza's beach holidays

When you hear about Ibiza, the word "party" probably comes to mind – but Ibiza is much more than that. As a matter of fact, Ibiza is more than just one island; it is a small archipelago of three islands known as "Las Pitiusas", including Ibiza, Formentera and Espalmador, only 100km east off the coast of Alicante, in mainland Spain. About half of Spain's top ten shores are located on these idyllic islands. By Jose

Beach holidays in France

Beach holidays in France

There's something about the best French beaches that inevitably reminds me of the best French cuisine – varied, fresh and sensual; verging on without quite tipping into decadent. Exempli gratia: the long, soft, ice-creamy dunes of the Côte d'Argent, sprawling infinitely into the distance. Not surprisingly, this has made France an international holiday Mecca for – well, a very long time. Such a long time, in fact, that to suggest a beach holiday in France today seems almost old hat.

UK holiday cottages for June

UK holiday cottages for June

Ok, so you might not jump for joy when you wake to raindrops on the window, but let’s face it – June’s as good a month as any to book a break at home. The schools have broken up in Scotland (the holidays usually begin around 25 June), and the weather is, well, more pleasant than usual. It can get as high as 22°C in the furthest reaches of southern England, topping off in Scotland at a moderate 17°C. There’ll only be six hours of sunshine per day, but hey – you can’t expect anything too great from our wet and windy isles right? By Sophie

Seaside Towns of Puglia

Seaside Towns of Puglia

Puglia, or Apulia, is the southeastern region of Italy known as the heel of the boot. It's a long and narrow region with lots of coastline on both the Adriatic and Ionian seas, making it a great place for lovers of beaches, fresh seafood, and seaside towns. Puglia has a wealth of fascinating places to visit and is not yet overrun with tourists. It's the perfect place to have a relaxing vacation, eat well, and enjoy the slow-paced southern Italian life.

Summer Breaks in Scotland

Summer holidays in Scotland

Scotland, in summer, has so much more to offer than sunshine. While the clouds will often clear and the temperature can shoot into the 20s, visitors warm to the place not purely because of its climate. It's the country’s history, the beauty of its landscape and the welcoming disposition of its denizens that make Scotland an attractive summer holiday destination. By Ronnie

North Cornwall Beach Holidays: the obvious choice for surfing and sandcastles

North Cornwall beach holidays

Planning a beach holiday in North Cornwall? You should be – this is serious surfing country (though it’s safe to say sunbathers, scuba divers and watersports fans won’t go unsatisfied, either!). More rugged than South Cornwall, its sweeping bays of warm, golden sand stretch for 40 miles from Perranporth to Bude, offering great Atlantic rollers backed by fantastic cliff-sides – in truth, there’s possibly no better spot in Britain to hop upon your board and tackle those waves. Bright, turquoise seascapes and grassy cliff faces await those who’d rather enjoy coastal walks along the Camel Trail, or take day trips to sites like Tintagel Castle. By Sophie

Lake District Summer Holidays: For those who need beaches and lakes in equal measure!

Lake District beach holidays

The Lake District is easily among the United Kingdom’s most visually breathtaking areas. Awe-inspiring landscapes of mountainous fells, glistening waters and charming rural sensibilities abound at every turn, attracting droves of tourists all year round. Alluring as this area is, in the summertime the vast majority more often than not opt to travel further afield in search of the more traditional beach holiday. The beauty of the region, however, is that its gratifying location, within reach of the north west coast, means that the two don’t necessarily need to be mutually exclusive. By Ronnie

Tuscany summer holidays: find beauty and relaxation during a summer holiday in Tuscany

Tuscany summer holidays

Visitors from around the world flock to Tuscany for its tranquillity, its divine landscape, and its friendly locals. If you’re a fan of wild nature, you’ll see plenty of it by the Ligurian Sea, with its rolling green hills and flourishing farms. By Sophie
