When it comes to Summer 20 destinations, Turkey’s really working it! Open the treasure trove of resorts and you’ll be wowed by bountiful bazaars, sun-kissed beaches and some truly enchanting history – and that’s just the start of Turkey’s charm. For island bliss, Greece is the word this August and September, so browse of our collection and you’re bound to find your match.
If you’re all set to be inspired, here are a handful of our top holiday swaps this summer…
Swap Malta for Dalaman
Peaceful, pocket-sized resorts meet history-jammed gems in the dreamy region of Dalaman. If you thought it couldn’t get better than the streets of Valletta, just wait until you meet Marmaris, where the beaches come in every shade of bronze and the hilltop castle is nothing short of magical.
Trade the Costa Blanca for Rhodes
Say hello to Rhodes! Faliraki fans can vouch for the draws of this fun-filled resort with its aptly named Bar Street and Club Street, while local and international restaurants dish up delights ranging from the classic full English to net-fresh seafood. What’s more, the island’s average highs in August are 29°C… seems pretty sun-sational to us!
Switch Ibiza for Zante
For days of discovery and after-dark delights, let’s see if Zante takes your fancy! Hush-hush villages such as Agios Leon and Alykanas check off charm in one fell swoop, while lively Laganas turns things up a notch. And with a lush line-up of super-swish beach clubs, it’s no wonder this south-eastern hotspot’s been drawing in the disco-dancers for decades. Sounding tempting?
Trade Tenerife for Crete
If your fave things about Tenerife are the remarkable landscapes, upbeat resorts and its urban, arty edge, then Crete is ready to greet you too! With Heraklion Area in the east and Chania Area in the west, it’s a tale of two halves round these parts. And when it comes to nightlife, Malia is Crete’s answer to Tenerife’s popular Playa De Las Americas.
Swap the Costa Brava for Bodrum
While it’s ‘bravo’ to the Costa Brava for its blissful scenery, we think Bodrum also deserves a drum roll of its own, thanks to its tree-blanketed mountains and by-the-pier charm! Take Guvercinlik, for example. This blue-and-white-striped stunner is a bit of a showstopper with its scattering of pine and olive trees. The colour-popping boats that bob in the harbour waters complete this pretty-as-a-postcard plot.
Mix up Marbella for Mykonos
Love the glamour of a getaway? Then you’ll be smitten with Mykonos! This whitewashed wonderland has ‘exclusivity’ etched all over it, thanks to its swanky shorefront restaurants and luxury label boutiques. A fan of the finer things in life? This Grecian goddess is as swish as it gets… your Instagram account won’t know what’s hit it.
Switch Majorca for Corfu
Majorca’s a classic – fact, but Corfu refuses to come second when its beautiful beaches are worthy of gold. Get set for a smorgasbord of bougainvillea-draped-delights, where humble fishing villages meet beach-crowned towns. If Magalluf was one of your Majorca-must-dos, well has Corfu got news for you!
