Hello, what’s this? Is that a cloudless sky I see over the Great British Isles? And, you know, I don’t actually need this jacket while I’m sat outside. Being able to have a picnic in the park and bask in the warm sunshine really puts you in the mood for a holiday.

Whether you want to have a cheeky long weekend away or have a couple of days getting a golden tan by the beach, June is the month to do it.

It can be quite difficult to choose between the Greek Islands given the incredible beauty of the region but you simply cannot overlook Rhodes. It embodies everything which makes this part of the world such a special holiday destination.
Everywhere you look there are nods to Greek mythology and its ancient history. Visit the famous Acropolis of Lindos, walk through the cobbled streets of the old medieval city and embrace the tranquillity of the natural surroundings at Rodini Park. Then, of course, you can try delicious food in the quaint tavernas and let your hair down in the bars of clubs of Faliraki.
Check out the 10 things you cannot miss in Rhodes in our blog post.
Turkey was recently revealed to be one of the best value for money holiday destinations in Europe, so watch your money go further with a break in Bodrum. Indulge at lavish 5-star hotels and wake up to unparalleled views over the Aegean Sea before wandering down to a private beach.
Bodrum is one of the many jewels along Turkey’s southern coast and you will feel right at home from the moment you arrive. Don’t forget to visit Ephesus – an impeccably ancient city just minutes from Bodrum – and perhaps even take a boat trip to Greece.
Albufeira has all the hallmarks of a crowd-pleasing family holiday destination. It has a huge beach, it is home to wide range of hotels, plenty of bars and restaurants and there is a marine-themed theme park nearby – oh, and the weather is stunning at this time of year.
However, it is not just a families-only destination as this corner of the Algarve has some of the best golf courses in Europe and country club and spa retreats. With flight times of only two hours, it really is a no-brainer.
When you think of Ibiza, you tend to conjure up images of super clubs and partying until the sun comes up. It is true that the Balearic island is renowned for being the clubbing capital of the world but head along the coast from San Antonio and you’ll find the charming resort of Santa Eulalia.
This is Ibiza turned down a couple of notches. It is a much quieter part of the island, ideal for families and couples seeking a much more relaxed holiday. Santa Eulalia is considered to be Ibiza’s gastronomic capital so it would be rude not to visit its much-lauded restaurants. There are also a multitude of art galleries and museums for the culture vultures among you.
Alternatively, you can spend your time topping up your tan on the pristine beach and celebrity spotting at the exclusive Yacht Marina.
Who could resist the lure of a long weekend in Barcelona? Who could possibly not get excited by the idea of a few nights in one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world? The Catalan capital has it all from the iconic sights of Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo to the achingly trendy bars and tapas restaurants of the Gothic Quarter.
Of course, a trip to Barcelona isn’t complete without a shopping spree on La Rambla and when you need a moment to relax then you can hit the beaches. This is a city that you can simply never tire of and provides a new adventure on every visit.
Much like Albufeira, when it comes to family holidays you can’t go wrong with a visit to Tenerife. Perched on the island’s southern coast is the popular resort of Costa Adeje keeps everyone – no matter how old – entertained for their entire stay.
Wander down to the golden sand beaches and try your hand at water sports, take the kids to the exhilarating theme park of Siam Park, go whale watching and dolphin spotting on a boat trip or simply relax by the pool of any number of the excellent hotels. Jet off in June and enjoy this Tenerife favourite without the crowds of the peak summer season.
