5 destinations to spend your big summer holiday

Are you enjoying this spring time sunshine? It’s a lovely novelty, isn’t it? And it may even stick around for the bank holiday weekend – what a bonus!

Gather round your friends, fire up your barbecue and spend the next couple of days basking in the sunshine and then, inevitably, get sunburnt. This period of seasonable weather will no doubt only last a couple of days before we return to endless rainy days but, fear not, we have an antidote to this – booking your big summer holiday.

It is an excellent time to start planning for your August getaway. You can choose somewhere where you’re guaranteed warm weather for a week or two. It gets even better, because if you book before the end of May you can secure a holiday for as little as £49pp deposit. So where are you going to choose?

Luckily, we’ve picked out some of our favourites for the 2017 summer holidays.

Playa del Carmen, Mexico


Push the boat out this summer and jet off for an once-in-a-lifetime trip to Mexico. The Yucatan Peninsula is one of the most beautiful places on earth blending the exotic surroundings of the Caribbean with the lively atmosphere of Latin America. Here you’ll find a collection of party resorts, quaint beachside villages and a host of incredible sights just waiting to be discovered.

One of the most iconic destinations in this region is Playa del Carmen. Forming one half of the major cities with nearby Cancun there is so much to be do in this vibrant city. It is the laidback neighbour of Cancun and is a haven for divers thanks to its proximity to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, a paradise for beach lovers and absolute Heaven for food lovers.

If you’re going to embark on a long haul trip this summer then make it to Playa del Carmen.

Visit one of the more unique destinations this summer with a holiday to Dubrovnik. Instantly recognisable thanks to its rows upon rows of terracotta-roofed buildings, this Gothic-inspired Croatian landmark is a treasure trove of interesting sights.

Wind through the cobbled streets and make your way to the Old Town, peruse the charming boutiques and sit down to some authentic Balkan cuisine. This is much more than a city break destination as a little outside of Dubrovnik are a host of amazing beaches where you can spend the day soaking up the sun. It is a destination with so many strings to its bow.

Corfu, Greece


When it comes to the idyllic Greek islands there are not many as beautiful as Corfu. There is a huge range of diversity on the island with the party resort of Kavos lined with bars and clubs while the peaceful resorts of Roda and St George South offer blissful serenity.

Travel to the capital of Corfu Town and spend your day immersing yourself in the culture of the city. Walk through the cobbled streets, visit the churches, sit down to eat at the tavernas and take in the glorious views over the harbour. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing beach break or city retreat then Corfu can provide all that and more.
