Eeek! Summer holidays are just around the corner, and we can’t wait for a week away! We love everything about our summer hols — whether it’s a party on a golden beach with our mates, or a chilled trip to somewhere beautiful with the family.
So to help you pick a heavenly holiday, we’ve chosen a selection of cool, affordable and beautiful destinations: a Spanish party getaway, a gorgeous British beach and a beautiful city escape.
Which one would get you packing your bags?
Marbella has had a recent surge in popularity thanks to it becoming a celeb favourite. With an Old Town full of narrow streets, a modern district full of shops and nightlife – as well totally gorgeous beaches – it’s a perfect place for a fun, sun-drenched break!
As Marbella is perched on the south coast of Spain, the sunshine is almost guaranteed – as is fun and relaxation while you sample the holy trinity of beaches, clubs and bars.
Whether you want to strut your stuff on the seafront, or just watch yachts bobbing on crystal-clear water, you can soak up the sunshine before heading to boutique bars that’ll keep you busy until the early hours. Perfect!
If you’re looking for a fun and relaxing break here in the UK, then Brighton is a brilliant choice for your stay-cation.
There’s something here for everyone. The famous pier is full of rides and amusements, the picturesque Lanes in the centre of town are full of cute boutique shops, and the long beaches are perfect for bracing walks.
In the evening, we recommend that you sample some of the nightlife that Brighton is rightly famous for. You can enjoy a cocktail in one of the many a fashionable bars, spend a few hours in a historic pub, or hit the clubs that are tucked away under the arches on the beach.
It’s one of the world’s most exciting, cool and creative cities: Barcelona is perfect if you fancy a city break. It’s a bustling mix of grand buildings, sophisticated shops and beautiful monuments that will leave you with picture-perfect memories.
Because Barcelona is slap-bang next to miles of glorious golden beaches, you’ll get the best of both worlds — you can sunbathe by day and explore the city by night!
Catalonia is well known for its excellent food, which is the perfect excuse to find time to visit some of the many restaurants. There’s a wide variety of delicious seafood, paella, meat, and cheese on offer, so you might need to loosen your belt after wandering the city’s winding streets and broad boulevards!
