The beaches of Europe are famous world wide for their quality, their predictable weather and climate and for the standards of the resorts that surround them.
European Beach Vacation – Spain
Many would argue that Spain started the trend for modern day European beach vacation resorts. You can choose from beach vacation resorts along the mainland coasts of the Mediteranean sea, or take a fantastic break to one of Spain’s many Island resorts. The islands of Majorca and Menorca are extremely popular and offer well priced but high quality vacation breaks.
The Canary Islands lie a little further afield but are still part of Spain. These islands lie much farther south – just off the African coast – and offer hotter and drier weather through most of the holiday season.
European Beach Vacation – Greece and the Greek Islands
The Greek coast and the Greek Islands offer a wonderful venue for a beach vacation. Sparkling blue seas, soft white beaches and wonderful small towns and villages make this the perfect european vacation destination. In summer you can expect the weather to be very hot – but on the islands there is nearly always a cooling breeze to make things more comfortable. Make sure your hotel room or villa has air conditioning or you’ll struggle to sleep at night!
Other European Beach Vacation Destinations
Take a look at Croatia or Bulgaria for cheaper beach vacations. Bulgaria has more basic resorts but amazing sandy beaches. Croatia is a more developed country with a fantastic coast line but the beaches tend to be rocky or pebble based.
Many European families now head for Turkey as their beach vacation destination of choice. You’ll find good value, friendly locals, clean and modern accommodation and weather that is hot, hot, hot!
Wherever you end up you won’t regret choosing a European Beach Vacation – give it a try.
