Blue Lagoon, Iceland

A truly blue-tiful experience awaits you at Iceland’s Blue Lagoon. Found on the Reykjanes peninsula, this geothermal spa remains one of the country’s most popular attractions. The water is rich with minerals and provides a rejuvenating experience. You’re even given free mud face masks to get you in the relaxation mood!

While the lagoon itself is magnificent, its surroundings are just as breathtaking. As the rising pillars of smoke from the lagoon’s surface evaporate, the volcanic landscape is revealed. Delight in the picturesque setting as you sit back and soak in the geothermal waters.

Top tip: the Blue Lagoon is a very popular attraction, so it’s worth booking your ticket in advance to ensure you get a space!

Pamukkale, Turkey

Pamukkale is a small town in western Turkey that houses the astounding travertines of Pamukkale. Similar to the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, people flock here to bathe in the waters as it’s believed they have healing powers! If you’re staying in Izmir, Bodrum or Antalya, this is a must-visit.

The structure of the travertines is truly remarkable. Individual pools form a waterfall effect down the cliff face. What makes the travertines even more unique is that every pool is surrounded by limestone, so the cobalt water reflects off the glistening white stone, creating a magical scene.

SPU Zlanti Rat Beach nicknamed Golden Horn 0117 13 RGB 136 DPI For Web

Zlatni Rat, Croatia

Welcome to one of Croatia’s crown jewels. This stunning Blue Flag beach is often known as the Golden Cape or Golden Horn Beach thanks to its unique shape and shimmering sands. If you’re staying on Brac Island, it’s only a stone’s throw away from the popular town of Bol. But everyone can bask in the delights of Zlatni as it’s accessible from Split or Hvar by boat.

It's one of the most beautiful stretches of Croatian coastline, boasting pebbled shores and crystal-clear waters perfect for swimming, snorkelling or paddleboarding. It’s the place to be if you’re a fan of water sports, and surfers from around the globe have been known to ride the waves at Zlatni Rat. So, grab a board and take to the sea, or pop your towel down on the sand under the shade of one of the vast pine groves.

Blue rooftops, Santorini

Nestled into Santorini's picture-perfect hilltops, you’ll find the spectacular town of Oia. Home to dazzling blue rooftops, this northern town is beloved for its staggering scenery. Spot the three famous domes perched on the cliffside, adorned with bell towers and topped with delicate white crosses.

You’ll want to snap the iconic picture of the domes all together, and to get to this spot you’ll have to wander through Oia itself. Enjoy the whitewashed, cobbled streets decorated with vibrant bougainvillea, before your view unfolds on the domes reflecting off the glistening turquoise waters.
