Malta’s history might date back thousands and thousands of years, but it’s got so much to offer today’s traveller too. From some of the oldest temples on earth to the stunning capital of Valletta (a UNESCO world heritage city, and the European Capital of Culture just two years ago), to the modern resorts of Saint Paul’s Bay – a trip to Malta is like travelling through time. And the melting pot vibe is true for the archipelago’s cuisine as well, with some of the best flavours of Italian, Spanish and French cooking coming together to create a truly delicious combination.
Another Balkan stunner, Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach certainly lives up to its name. A modern resort town on the Black Sea coast, Sunny Beach is packed full of things to do, including water sports, casinos and bars and restaurants. Or if you’re just there to relax, there’s more than 8km of golden sands waiting for you too. And with the historic town of Nessebar nearby, you can get a real taste of Bulgaria’s fascinating culture too.
Previously a bit of an undiscovered gem in the Adriatic region, Montenegro is starting to become a bit of a holiday hotspot. But, don’t worry, there’s still plenty of bargain breaks to be found. Home to both beautiful beaches and majestic mountains, it’s ideal for both activity holidays and relaxing beach stays. And you can expect a warm welcome from the locals too.
Picture a Greek island, and odds are, you might be picturing Santorini – the traditional white-washed houses sparkling under the Mediterranean sunshine, the crystal clear waters, and the beautiful beaches. And while there’s plenty of stunning historic and natural sights to see during the day, the lively scene in Santonrini’s capital Fira offers plenty to do at night too.
A long-standing luxury holiday favourite, you probably already know that the Maldives are an amazing place for a beach getaway. But with more than 1000 islands to explore, even if you’ve been before, the archipelago still has plenty of surprises in store. With many resorts located on their own private islands, it’s perfect for really relaxing escapes.
Vibrant and verdant – Costa Rica is a real nature lovers’ paradise. You can explore lush rainforests, hike across volcanoes, come face to face with sloths, monkeys and toucans, and try locally grown chocolate and coffee. And if that’s enough excitement there’s plenty of adrenaline-packed activities to try out, like epic zip line experiences and fantastic surfing spots.
