We’re all going on a Summer Holiday

Summer is just around the corner, even though the cold spell we have been experiencing would perhaps suggest otherwise.

Here in Britain we enjoy nothing mote than a break away. Whether this is a long luxurious summer holiday, a weekend break in the city or a trip to our holiday home – perhaps a recent purchase of one of the log cabins for sale NI just like those at http://logcabinsnorthernireland.com/ Whatever the reason or destination we just can’t wait to pull on our shirt and flip flops.

So, let’s take a look at what were the most popular holiday destinations in 2017:

  1. Spain – Probably not much of surprise to find that the Costa del Sol, the Balearic Islands, namely Ibiza, and the Canary Islands are still the top place for a summer holiday. It’s due to the fact that you know what to expect. The weather is generally good and guaranteed. It’s not just beach holidays though. There is the rise of the football mini break to see Barcelona play or a tour around the Castile region for the countries Castles and interior.
  2. Greece – Again, not much of a surprise here. The myth, mystery and history of Greece still draws us. Again, we know that the weather will not let us down and the that there are picturesque beaches to lounge upon all day. Mykonos and Crete are the most popular island.
  3. Mexico – The up and coming destination. Mexico can boast marvellous weather and its tourism centre of Cancun is drawing more and more people looking to avoid the crowded Spain and Greece. It too has ancient history to show in the shape of the ruins of the Aztec and Mayans civilisations.
  4. Cape Verde – Bet this was a surprise! Where on earth is Cape Verde? If you like the beach, and nothing but the beach then this is a very popular spot. They are Islands of the coast of Africa and their weather is very hot no cold days here. Easy to see why they are so popular then.
  5. Cyrus – This Mediterranean island may not be largest of spots compared to the juggernaut of Ibiza and the Greek Islands, but it is still a very popular spot. It has a lots of clean award beaches and there is the clubbers paradise of Ayia Napa to give Ibiza a run for its money. Lovely weather to plus you can see the Crusaders history and the results of conflict between the Greece South and Turkish North.
  6. Turkey – This has become less popular due to the political unrest, current leadership issues and the countries nearness to Syria. This is shame as the country not only has a series of beautiful beaches but it also has a several UNESCO sites of interest and the kind of bustling towns that are vivid with character. A chance to see where the western world and eastern world meet.

Wherever you go. Happy Holidays!
