Antalya

The food, the beaches, the attractions – Antalya is a sparkling gem in Turkey’s crown. Whether you go for an extravagant hotel the size of a village in Lara Beach, or find a quaint little apartment in Side - you’ll love, love, love what this Turkish region has to offer. With the average temperature hitting a scorching 28°C in July, you’ll not only be met with a warm welcome from the locals, but an even warmer welcome from the sunshine.

Boasting a jaw-dropping 200 Blue Flag beaches, there’s no wonder families are drawn to Antalya year-after-year. Long stretches of sandy shore await, with Belek’s coastline spanning a massive 16km of white, soft sands. Lara Beach is another popular sport as there are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. Plus, a large amount of Antalya’s top hotels also have direct access to the beach, making it super easy to relax by the Mediterranean sea.

As the largest city on the Mediterranean coast, you can imagine that Antalya has a boat load of exciting things to do. Boat trips, shopping malls and aqua parks are readily available throughout the region, but are also popular features of the amazing hotels that Antalya hosts.

Cancun

A show-stopping destination known for its sparkling beaches and spectacular nightlife, Cancun is Mexico’s answer to a holiday destination that has it all! The lively city has so much culture to offer too, with ancient Mayan ruins still standing and an extraordinary yet amazing underwater art museum.

With 22km of white sand meeting the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea, there’s no wonder this city is a top beach hot spot. Although the weather is warm throughout the year, July sees the warmest average temperature at 28°C – perfect for those who love the blazing sun. There’s also a fantastic selection of luxury hotels to choose from, a lot of them situated right by the sparkling shore, so you’ll always have the crystal-clear waters in sight.

Well known for its nightlife scene, Cancun is a top pick for young groups who love wild parties and good times. Punta Cancun is the place to go for some of the top clubs in the area, hosting discos and parties until the early hours of the morning. Or, if you prefer to keep it a little more chilled, Punta Cancun also has its fair share of restaurants and bars to explore. Cancun isn’t just for the party-lovers either, there’s a great range of hotels that cater to families and keep the little ones entertained throughout their stay.

Tenerife

The Canary Islands may be warm all year round, but they’re extra hot in July, which is why Tenerife is a perfect destination for a mid-summer holiday. Go for a luxury stay in Costa Adeje, dance ‘til you drop in Playa de las Americas or keep it low-key under the sun in Los Cristianos. With an average flight time of around four hours and a variety of resorts to suit each type of holiday, who can say no to a holiday on this top-class island?

You may have heard of a little place called Siam Parque. No? Well, it’s only been named the world’s best water park, and it’s located in Tenerife! The Thailand-themed adventure land is filled with exciting attractions for both the adrenaline junkie and the laid-back lazy river lover. To put into perspective how amazing it is, one of its most famous attractions is the 91 foot-high Tower of Power, which involves a vertical plunge down the slide and then through an aquarium filled with sharks and stingrays.

If waterparks aren’t your thing and you’re more of a beach buff, Tenerife’s beaches sparkle with golden sands and soft blue waters. The south and east coasts are lined with family-friendly beaches, hidden gems and all-round stunning shores. Plus, as it’s a volcanic island, Tenerife also features unique, black sandy beaches – which are more relaxing than you may think and are a must-visit for holidaymakers.
