With Summer 2020 just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your next sunshine holiday. You don’t want to miss out on your dream destination, plus it’s always nice to have something to look forward to, so now’s the perfect time to book!
Looking for the perfect place to lay down your beach towel? We’ve got you covered with the best places to go in Summer 2020.
Welcome to an Aegean gem. Blessed with some of Greece’s best sandy beaches, outstanding natural beauty and sun, sun, sun, this is a no-brainer for Summer 2020.
If you’ve got any doubts about this island’s good looks, then give Mamma Mia a watch. Skiathos was used as the backdrop for the hit film, so all those dreamy beaches, picturesque villages and incredible landscapes could be yours to explore.
Whether you’re after tranquillity or an atmospheric evening out, little Skiathos island can do it all. Boasting both chilled out resorts, such as Achladies, and buzzy streets of Skiathos Town, here there’s something for every visitor.
This colourful waterside destination is a winner for your 2020 retreat. Think beachfront restaurants, flower-filled streets and lots of dazzling Mediterranean sun. From traditional charm to bright white beaches, Parga really is a slice of authentic Greek paradise.
Start your day wandering through the warren of pretty passageways, dotted with teeny shops and bakeries, then head to stunning Valtos Beach to soak up a few rays on the shore. As evening draws in, grab a seat at one of the harbourfront tavernas and enjoy drinks as you watch the sun set.
One of the big draws of Parga is its amazing food. Traditional restaurants have delicious local dishes chalked onto menus, so pull up a chair at one of the quaint street-side restaurants or sit at the waterfront for dinner with a view.
With oodles of chilled out beaches and sleepy villages, holidays on peaceful Lefkas island are all about unwinding. So, if Summer 2020 for you is all about R&R, you need to get yourself to this under-the-radar beauty.
Not only is it laidback, but it’s beautiful too. Grab your camera and visit Agios Ioannis Beach for white sands, azure-blue waters and lush forests – your Instagram followers won’t know what’s hit them.
In the evenings, sample the catch of the day and other delicious Greek classics at dinky seaside restaurants. And if you feel like a few drinks, Nidri’s main street is the place to be for an evening of fun.
Dubbed Croatia’s hottest location for all things cool and cultured, Zadar should be on your list for Summer 2020. Hit the city for amazing food, beachfront restaurants and atmospheric bars.
For a little coast time, Plava Plaza and Beach Pinija are both popular, but not too busy. That means you’ve got more space to chill and clock up some relaxation time.
From Zadar, Croatia is just waiting to be explored. Visit glorious Krka National Park and amble through the enchanting green-tinged scenery and marvel at the spectacular waterfalls.
It’s an oldie but a goodie. Benidorm has been a firm favourite of Brits for years – and for good reason too! From the gorgeous white beaches of the aptly named Costa Blanca to the fun-filled nightlife of the resort centre, Benidorm is a holiday classic.
During the day, claim your spot on Levante Beach or by the pool and sun it up. As night draws in, head to the strip, where you’ll find bustling bars, lively clubs and plenty of entertainment.
Whatever your holiday plans for Summer 2020, you know Benidorm will offer up something for any group or family.
Sitting on the west coast of the Balkan Peninsula, Montenegro is a stunner. With golden beaches, whitewashed houses and heaps of natural beauty, you’re on to a winner here. This gem offers some of the most spectacular seafront scenery you’ll see, so keep your camera at the ready!
Marrying the east and the west, Montenegro is brimming with an elegant jumble of different architectures to admire and explore. History buffs will be in heaven here, especially in photogenic Kotor and centuries-old Budva.
Once you’ve checked out the local sights, embrace your inner explorer and venture further afield. With Croatia close by and Bosnia and Herzegovinia to the north and Albania to the south, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to day trips.
