Beat the summer heat with these getaways

Where will your next holiday take you?

As winter comes to an end and temperatures rise, it’s time to start looking to escape the UAE heat. If you’re planning a much-needed summer holiday, we’ve got you covered. From romantic getaways to family adventures, here are our top five destinations for an unforgettable trip.

Get your heart racing in Zakynthos

With some of the prettiest beaches in all of Greece, you might think postcard-perfect Zakynthos is a peaceful retreat.

But don’t be fooled. The limestone cliffs framing the beaches bring base jumpers from all over the world. If you’re not feeling quite brave enough to join them, dive into the azure waters and meet a dazzling array of fish, turtles and sharks.

Treat the family to fun in Cancun

Cancun, off the southeast coast of Mexico, is the perfect destination for a family holiday, with a vast choice of family-friendly hotels close to the stunning coastline.

You’ll also discover amazing water parks, funfairs, safari parks, and even dolphin shows. Or venture out a little further and discover the ancient Mayan Ruins.

Watch the sun set in Menorca

A powerful contrast to Spain’s famous party islands, Menorca is a true island paradise in the Mediterranean.

Trek on horseback, discover prehistoric remains, and most impressive of all, watch the sun set. The western coast offers an incredible backdrop to this daily event, which looks richer and more beautiful here than anywhere else in the world.

Enjoy a cultured break in Dubrovnik

Long known in Croatia as ‘The Pearl of the Adriatic’ for its unique charm and history, the city of Dubrovnik has enjoyed fame in recent years as a setting for Game of Thrones.

After seeing the Minceta fortress and Venetian-style old town, you can relax in one of the city’s many café-lined alleys and enjoy the laid-back lifestyle.

Soak up the sun in Tenerife

Tenerife in the Canary Islands is known as the island of a thousand experiences, with whale watching, golden beaches, mountain climbing, shopping, theme parks, golf, and perfect weather all year round to enjoy them.

Visit Europe’s biggest water park, Siam Park, with water slides set among lush vegetation. Stroll around the historical 16th century town of La Orotava. Or take a trip to Anaga Rural Park, one of the few places on Earth where primordial laurel forest still grows.
