August is prime holiday season, especially for those who like it hot, hot, hot! School’s out for summer and you’ve booked time off with the boss – the only problem now is deciding where to go! Can we tempt you with any of this little lot?
Fancy an adventure this summer? Egypt holidays offer a completely unique experience. Whether you want to submerge yourself in the ancient culture, fancy exploring the amazing Red Sea dive sights, or simply want to relax in luxury, Egypt has it all. The good news is that because Egypt is the furthest short-haul destination from the UK, this is a destination that perfect for adventurers on a budget!
If your summer holidays are all about the kids, Orlando is the ultimate magical family destination. Whether you’ve got tiny tots who are mad about Disney, or older film fans, the Disney and Universal Studios theme parks have to be experienced to be believed! Or maybe you’re after a strictly adults only getaway? In that case, why not consider the bright lights of Las Vegas or a lively beach break in Miami?
Those with little ones may want a holiday that’s not too far from home. If this sounds like you then Menorca is the perfect choice of island escape. It’s quieter than its fellow Balearic Islands, Majorca and Ibiza, making it ideal for young families who want to avoid the crowds and clubbers that the Balearics are known for. The popular resorts of Fornells and Mahon both have pretty harbours to explore – with the latter being the livelier option. Alternatively, if you are footloose and child free, the White Isle of Ibiza simply has to be done at least one summer.
If you want something a bit different to the usual beach/bar hopping summer holiday, Italy is a destination in a class of its own. Lake Garda is stunning and ideal for active types – hike the mighty Dolmites, hire bikes to circle the lake or head out on a boat to see as much of this picturesque Italian beauty as possible.
For those who fancy jetting off on a long haul holiday, Mexico is an amazing all-rounder that’s just as fantastic for families as it is couples and groups. Cheap Cancun holidays are brilliant for those who want to have fun in the sun, with a lively night scene, amazing shopping opportunities, brilliant beaches and exciting waterparks. If it’s an action-packed holiday that you’re after, excursions to the Xcarat Eco Theme Park, the diving haven of Cozumel and the ancient Mayan city of Tulum are all within easy reach of the main resorts of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya.
Travelling in August means that you’re guaranteed to see the best of your chosen holiday destination, with all the attractions and facilities open and the season in full swing.
