If you’re still not sure on the destination, here are our top 5 handpicked European destinations for 2014!
1. Majorca – The Jewel of the Mediterranean
Majorca has been a popular summer destination for British holiday makers for many years thanks to its stunning landscape, beautiful sandy beaches and numerous restaurants and bars catering for all budgets. If you’re looking for a fun, young and lively atmosphere, the well known resort of Magaluf remains as popular as ever. If you’re a music fan check out the big names headlining at Mallorca Rocks this summer including Ed Sheeran and Lily Allen. If it’s a family holiday you’re planning, we recommend heading out to Alcudia in the north, Sóller in the west, or to one of the beautiful resorts in the east such as Calas de Mallorca. Wherever you decide to stay we highly recommend hiring a car and exploring all the gems hidden in this beautiful island.
2. Bodrum – A stunning city of contrasts
If you’re looking for a traditional “Sun, Sea and Sand holiday” with excellent value for money then Turkey offers a fantastic option. The beauty of turkey lies in the mix of traditional and western culture from the bazaars, local cuisine and of course the hospitality of the locals. The cosmopolitan resort of Bodrum located on the Aegean coast really does cater for everyone whether you’re looking for a relaxing beach holiday or to party hard into the early of the morning, and if you’re into the dance the scene don’t miss the SunSplash festival taking place in early June.
3. Dubrovnik – Pearl of the Adriatic
The UNESCO-protected city of Dubrovnik has been a popular holiday destination for some time now, thanks to its beautiful hidden beaches, mix of romantic cobble-stoned streets and not to mention it’s kicking nightlife. The beauty of Dubrovnik is that it offer a great beach destination as well as a number of cultural and historical monuments within the city walls. We recommend you also set some time aside to visit one of the many islands dotted along the coast, with the beautiful island of Mljet being our favourite.
4. Albufeira – Always a winner
The Algarve is the perfect destination for everyone, whether you’re planning on going with the family, a group of friends, with your partner or even if you’re looking for you time alone. With a number of flights to Faro from all major UK airport along with a wide range of hotels, Albufeira offers great value for money and lets you tailor make your holiday to your needs, whether it’s a budget hotel or a luxury 5 star hotel. For all you food lovers don’t miss the BBQ Chicken festival in July, Sardine festival in August and the Fisherman’s festival in September.
5.Naxos – A Greek treasure
Deciding on our favourite Greek island has probably been the hardest decision, there’s not a single island that doesn’t offer glorious sunshine, paradisiacal beaches and a guaranteed fabulous holiday. But after much thought, we’ve decided on the Naxos, for its huge range of activities and because it’s managed to savour much of the traditional Greek way of life. As the largest of the Cyclades islands it’s by far the island with most to see and do including historical sites, routes for walking and biking, and a great place for water sports. Although it’s not your typical clubbers island, but if that’s what you’re looking for head out to Chora and Ag. Anne
These are just a few our favourites but the list really is endless. Wherever you decide, book soon as our Crazy summer offers end at the end of the month and both flights and hotels are getting snapped up by the hour. http://logi.travel/M01
