June holiday hotspots


Kyrenia, Cyprus Where to go on holiday in June? Visit Kyrenia, Cyprus

Situated just outside the Eurozone, Northern Cyprus promises warm weather, history and culture in equal measure. The harbour city of Kyrenia combines ancient ruins with sandy beaches and stunning scenery. Talk a stroll through the old town, with its whitewashed buildings and crumbling towers, before heading to the newer part of the city when night falls. Here you’ll find restaurants and taverns serving some of the finest kebabs in the Med, made with chunks of salty halloumi and grilled chicken.

Palma, Mallorca Where to go on holiday in June? Visit Palma, Mallorca

Take a trip to Mallorca in June and you’ll be able to explore the island at your leisure before the crowds descend. While the island is famed for its nightlife, principal city Palma also offers a surprising blend of culture and historical curiosities. Take a stroll along the tree-lined avenues of La Rambla and Passeig des Born and pay a visit to the promenade. Four miles outside Palma lie the sandy beaches of C’an Pastilla and Cala Mayor. During June, the city also hosts a number of culinary and arts events.

Koh Samui, Thailand Where to go on holiday in June? Visit Koh Samui, Thailand

This idyllic island retreat is renowned for its laidback vibe and golden-white beaches. Coconut plantations, cascading waterfalls, verdant plant life and dazzling nightlife all combine to make this the ultimate party destination. In June, Koh Samui isn’t thronged with tourists; while beach parties and cocktails bars abound, there are plenty of quiet spots where the only sound is the waves gently lapping against the shore. Koh Samui is simply beautiful.

Peru Where to go on holiday in June? Visit Peru

If you’re keen to leave the workplace behind - like, really far behind - then Peru promises adventure on a grand scale. There’s the obligatory trip to Machu Picchu to fit in, the rainforests of the Amazon jungle to explore by riverboat, stunning sunsets and Colca Canyon, the world’s deepest canyon. Pack your hiking boots and trek along the 33km Inca Trail that winds through the Andes.

Catalonia Where to go on holiday in June? Visit Catalonia

It’s Spain and yet it’s not Spain. This fiercely independent region in the north of the country takes in the Pyrenees mountains, the cultural hub that is Barcelona and 250 miles of stunning coastline. Come here in June when the weather’s warm and there are fewer tourists to contend with. Take in the tiny fishing ports of Palamos and L’Escala, visit the ancient city of Tossa de Mar and witness medieval monasteries at Poble and Scala Dei.
