We don’t know about you, but the recent spell of sunshine in the UK has given us the taste for a full blown early summer getaway – and June is the perfect time to go. There’s still a full month before the school holidays meaning that resorts are quieter, the temperature is climbing so you’ll get an early start on your tan and if you’re not a football fan – the World Cup starts on 14th June – a last minute holiday is the perfect way to escape. So the only question left is: where’s hot in June?
Situated just a six hour flight away, Hurghada pretty much ticks every box. Offering a whole different culture to what we’re used to in the UK, you’ll find yourself surrounded by beautiful architecture, golden sands and friendly locals. With temperatures reaching highs of 33°C towards the end of the month, you’re guaranteed to come back with a tan to make everyone back home jealous…
We recommend: 5* Jasmine Palace
One of the most popular resorts in Spain and home to resorts like Albir and Benidorm, Costa Blanca is perfect for those looking for a short flight time and guaranteed great weather. If you visit towards the end of June, you’ll enjoy highs of up to 25°C and with sea temperatures also in the mid 20s, it’s no surprise that the “White Coast” continues to attract holidaymakers.
We recommend: 3* Sol Pelicanos Ocas
Known as the ‘Turkish Riviera’, Antalya also boasts the hottest temperatures in the whole of the Turkey region. The beaches in the area are known for their turquoise waters and fine white sands and with a range of secluded coves and ancient harbours, there really is something for everyone to enjoy.

Santorini is one of the most, if not the most recognisable Greek island. Whitewashed buildings and blue domes spread across the hill tops make for some of the most popular Instagram posts, but the island has much more to offer. With a mix of red and black sand beaches, temperatures in June regularly reach up to 24°C.

The Canary Islands are a safe bet all year round when it comes to sunshine, but during the June you’ll find the temperature reaching an average of 23°C. With a flight time of just over 4 hours, you’ll be enjoying tasty cocktails, swaying palm trees and the volcanic sands in resorts such as Corralejo and Costa Calma in no time.
