Note: This is a guest post

It’s never too late to consider the various options for a summer holiday this year. Starting to get the ball rolling now also means that you could benefit from some fabulous last minute offers when it comes to booking your chosen resort.

While there are destinations all over the world that are perfect for a summer jaunt, often, family and finance issues mean that many people choose to stay a little closer to home, making short haul resorts the ideal choice. With many providing excellent value for money too, you can’t go far wrong – especially with the massive selection of European islands waiting for you to visit.

But which do you choose?


Majorca holidays have been, and continue to be, incredibly popular with families of all ages. Just a couple of hours flight from the UK and you can be on this fantastic Mediterranean island, just off the south coast of Spain.

As part of the Balearics archipelago, there are quite a few different islands to choose from, but Majorca is definitely the biggest. Appealing to families and groups alike, it all depends on which resort you choose.
From the vibrant resort of Alcudia that is perfect for children, to the party capital that is Magaluf, there’s something for everyone on this fun-filled island.


Many of the popular holidays Greece has to offer are based around its selection of islands, such as Rhodes, Corfu and Kos. Notorious for its 300 days of sunshine per year, Rhodes is a stunning island with plenty of beaches and coves to explore.

The golden sandy beaches lay way for the beautiful turquoise waters that host plenty of watersports activities, while the waterpark in Faliraki is a magnet for kids of all ages, including the grown up ones.
Whether you settle for one of these fantastic islands for your summer jaunt, or you prefer to delve deeper into the options available, make sure you book online and take advantage of any deals that may be available to you, to ensure a memorable break that is kind to the purse too.
