We’re officially half way through January which means that hopefully everyone is back into their pre-Christmas routine – who are we kidding?! We’re in desperate need of a holiday already! Join us as we daydream about the top 5 places to visit in 2018…
If it’s a good old-fashioned beach holiday you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong with Tenerife. The largest Canary Island has long proved popular with British holidaymakers for years and it shows no signs of slowing down.
With a diverse range of beaches (the island is home to a mix of black, volcanic and white sands), year-round weather and a great nightlife scene, Tenerife ticks every box.
Be sure to sample some quality Spanish cuisine, most of which have a Canarian flair. Grilled fish, known as ‘la plancha’ is a favourite, along with mojo sauce which is traditionally served on potatoes.
We recommend: Siam Park Water Park, Costa Adeje
4) Tel Aviv
Tel Aviv is fast becoming an addition to everyone’s bucket list and rightly so. Not just a one-trick pony, the city offers the perfect balance between soft sands and breathtaking culture.
The city itself is packed with history and culture, drawing influences from a wide range of cultures around the world and boasting some incredible architecture. If you’re not too tired from exploring, enjoy a night exploring the nightlife. Underground club Kuli Alma is well known for its chilled-out beats and vibrant design.
A trip to neighbouring city Jerusalem is definitely worthwhile. Completely different to Tel Aviv, the city has a focus on religion and shows a more traditional way of life…

A holiday to Greece opens the door to so many possibilities. From the breathtaking architecture of capital city Athens, to the individual charm of each island, there really is something for everyone.
Experience the best of Greece by booking an island-hopping trip, giving you the option to mix and match which of the islands you visit. The larger islands, such as Crete and Corfu, are tourist hubs and buzzing with activity while smaller islands such as Skiathos offer a more authentic vibe.
With a strong Mediterranean flair, Greek cuisine is fresh and full of flavour. Tuck into a meze sharing platter, grilled meats or fresh seafood at one of many family-run restaurants.

With a flight time of just over 2.5 hours, Majorca is the perfect choice for a long weekend in the sun and with warm temperatures all year round, there really isn’t a bad time to go.
Owing to its Spanish culture, festivals take place throughout the year which see locals and tourists alike come together to take part in singing, dancing and sampling some typical Spanish food and drink.
Majorca is home to over 200 beaches so there is bound to me that suits you perfectly -from the family-friendly Alcudia Bay to the watersport-centric Puerto Pollensa.
We recommend: Katmandu Park
Our number one choice for an unforgettable break in 2018 is the Maltese capital Valletta, which coincidentally is also this year’s European Capital of Culture.
The throbbing commercial and cultural heart of Malta, you’ll find yourself walking around in awe at the narrow streets, quaint shops and all-round amazing buildings. Enjoy some relaxation time at Mellieha Bay, the island’s longest beach where you’ll find shallow waters and a range of different watersports to try.
Maltese cuisine takes influence from Sicilian, British and Spanish cuisine, with traditional rabbit stew served with goat’s cheese a highlight.
