Top 10 summer sun holiday destinations in June
If you're seeking sunshine in June but haven't decided where to go, be inspired by our brand new summer sun infographic. Displaying 10 handpicked destinations, it shows extras such as flight time and activities in places that typically offer long, sunny days in June.
Top 10 summer sun: don't miss our complete collection of top 10 destinations for summer sun, divided by month from May to October.
One of the best things about chasing the sun in June is that there are lots of wonderful options within easy reach of the UK. As you can see from our top 10, we've carefully chosen destinations that are accessible and, with the exception of Orlando, they're all a maximum of five hours away.
While factors such as flight time and daily temperature are, of course, important, this collection is all about places with lashings of sunshine, and every destination listed has a minimum of nine hours per day.
In addition, we've highlighted just one of the draws of each - some may even surprise you! Orlando, for example, has far more than theme parks on offer with a huge variety of museums, galleries and artistic performances to delight culture vultures, while Lanzarote boasts some of the best hiking routes in the archipelago for active outdoor lovers.
We also hope to inspire with new ideas: been to Lisbon and explored the coast along the Algarve? Why not visit a different Portugal this year by heading inland to ancient Evora instead, for example.
- Antalya Coast, Turkey
- Orlando, Florida, USA
- Rhodes, Greece
- Evora, Portugal
- Sicily, Italy
- Benidorm, Spain
- Lanzarote, Canary Islands
