Short beach break

With the heat of the Mediterranean right on your doorstep, a short beach break or long weekend away in the lovely, warm sun is as easy as clicking search and packing your overnight bag. Jet off to destinations including Spain, Greece and Portugal for a quick beach break this summer. Whether you're in love with the beaches of Majorca, fancy a few nights in the Algarve or you're wanting a chilled-out break in Costa Calida, we've got you covered.

Short beach breaks for families

One thing that keeps the whole family happy – a holiday! Whether you and the little ones need some time away or you’re looking to spend quality time under the sun with your grown up kids, getting away for a few days is the perfect way to bring the family together. With so many warm and wonderful beach destinations only a short flight away, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to family-friendly beach breaks. Spain, Portugal, the Balearics and more, these beautiful destinations have what it takes to keep the whole family smiling.

Relaxing by the pool for parents, kids making a splash at the aqua park, grandparents heading to the beach for a day by the sparkling sea – it’s a dream for all generations. Whether you’re seeking a Self Catering adventure around the local markets and restaurants, or want to go All Inclusive for non-stop fun, food and fantastic entertainment, we’ve got the perfect break for you. So, all you need to do is pick your dates, find your perfect destination and choose the dream hotel that will leave you and your kids smiling from ear to ear for a long time, even after you return home.

Short beach breaks for couples

Get away with your favourite person and soak up the sun together on a short but sweet beach break. Escape day-to-day life and dip your toes in the sea, unwind with cocktails at the poolside and enjoy romantic meals for two. Whether you’re a couple who love exploring charming towns in the Algarve, want to experience the famous buzz of Benidorm beaches or are a ‘rave together, stay together’ pair looking for party stay in Ibiza – we offer short beach breaks for every type of couple.

Jumping on a flight to the sun, sea and sand for a few days is always a great idea. Whether it’s a warm escape in winter, an autumnal adventure or you’ve decided British summertime isn’t ‘summery’ enough for you, the warm feeling when you step off the plane will make anyone fall in love. From luxury getaways to budget-friendly stays, take a look at some of our best short beach breaks for couples…

Short beach breaks for groups

There’s nothing like a mates’ escape, is there? From the first idea of “let’s go on holiday”, to the moment you take off – there’s no excitement like it…and that’s before you’ve even arrived! We all know that a week with the whole group can be a bit much though, which is why we’re a big fan of short beach breaks for groups. You can perfectly plan those five days in Spain, go for a relaxing All Inclusive long weekend in Portugal, or head for the Balearics where you can chill out, catch some rays and club the night away with your best mates.

So, gather the group, browse our destinations and see what looks like it will be spot on for you and your mates. If you’re looking for a cheap break in the sun, we’ve got it. Want something by the beach? You’ll find it here. Maybe you’re getting together for a special occasion and fancy a five-star experience…well, we do those too! Wondering where to start?
