It may be the festive season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look ahead to the summer holidays and what you’re going to fill the time with to make it as memorable a summer as possible. Even with the economy in the state it’s in, families all over the country continue to be reluctant to give up their annual holiday, and why should they? With plenty of affordable options nowadays, particularly if you’re a savvy online shopper, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a short haul break this summer, too.
Choose from one of the popular summer sun destinations and not only can you enjoy some blissful climes, sandy beaches and turquoise waters, but you can enjoy them affordably, too. Take a look at these three fabulous islands to help inspire your summer dreams.
Ibiza continues to be a popular destination for party animals but this beautiful Balearic Island has much more on offer as well as the endless bars and clubs. Opt to go to one of her lesser-known resorts, away from the crowds, and you can enjoy a holiday on the island which is peaceful, calm and laidback.
Choose to head to the island outside of the peak times and you can score a real bargain!
This Canary Island is a firm family favourite, for very good reason. Whether you want your dose of summer sun or you’d prefer to head over during the spring or autumn months, Gran Canaria is a perfect resort for a sunkissed break. From the dunes of Maspalomas to the family-friendly neighbour, Playa del Ingles, there are some fantastic deals to be had online, including some all-inclusive bargains.
Offering a mixed bag of tricks, Zante is a great all-round island in the heart of the Ionian Sea. The south of the island is particularly popular with holidaymakers, due to the outstanding beaches on offer. Head to Navagio Beach for a spectacular afternoon, including the chance to espy the shipwreck that has made a home for itself on the shore.
Head off on a short haul adventure during your summer and give yourself a well-deserved break!
