Going on holiday is never a bad idea. The sun is always shining, you’re never too far from the beach and there’s always a tropical cocktail waiting for you wherever you go. Join us on a quick journey through our top 5 reasons why we love holidays…
We might be slightly biased but a holiday is not a holiday without a beach. Whether you’re a drop and flop kind of holidaymaker or prefer to take a dip in the sea, the beach offers the best of both worlds. The fun doesn’t have to end when the sun goes down either. Depending on what type of holiday you’re on, you can head to a beachside bar or restaurant for something to eat and take in the views, or why not enjoy a full blown beach party…

Being on holiday presents the perfect opportunity to try your hand at new things and if the sun is shining, the only place to be is in the water, right?! Most beaches offer a variety of watersports from holiday favourites such as banana boats and Total Wipeout-esque inflatables. You can also enjoy a spot of kite-surfing in Fuerteventura, sea kayaking in Croatia or diving in the Greek Islands.

Do we even need to explain this one?! We can all agree that one of the perks of heading to a different country is to experience the cuisine there. Would a trip to Spain be complete without tasting the tapas? Or how about sampling the Moussaka on one of the Greek Islands? Our all-inclusive hotels offer a great range of local and international dishes that are just waiting to be sampled…

Sometimes we just need to get away from the stresses of everyday life and a beach holiday is a great way to combat that. Why not take it one step further and combine your beach escape with a spa and wellness retreat? Enjoy a massage on the beach, a soak in a Turkish bath or book a full day of spa treatments in your own hotel.
