Popular beach holiday destinations

Deciding where to go is half the battle when it comes to choosing your beach holiday. You can travel as little or as far as you like (depending on the time of year, of course) on your hunt for the perfect beach, and with so many enticing holiday deals to help you on your way, it's easier - and more affordable - than ever.

  • Europe & the Med - holidays to the Med have long been the favourite of sun-seeking Brits thanks to the proximity to the UK, trusty climate, and variety of resorts. From the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol and Majorca to the turquoise waters of the Turkish Riviera, Greece and Cyprus, the Mediterranean is stuffed full of beach options. Then there's destinations on the fringes of the Atlantic Ocean such as the Canary Islands and the Algarve; two of the most popular places for UK holidaymakers to go on a beach break.
  • Caribbean - bursting with vibrant colours, tantalising flavours and immeasurable natural beauty, the Caribbean is consistently popular with those seeking some serious R&R, not to mention more accessible than ever before. Take in the Mayan ruins at Tulum on Mexico's Caribbean coast, experience reggae in Jamaica or sunbathe on St Lucia's stunning beaches - the list is endless.
  • Indian Ocean - the Indian Ocean has to be one of the world's finest regions for beach holidays thanks partly to its balmy warm waters, which makes it ideal for swimming and snorkelling. A firm favourite with couples, families and luxury lovers looking for a taste of the exotic, the Indian Ocean offers everything from shallow reefs and spectacular views in the Maldives and Mauritius to white sandy beaches of the Seychelles and the bustling budget vibe of Goa and Sri Lanka.
  • The Americas - from the retro beachfront in Miami to tropical Costa Rica and party beaches of Brazil, North, Central and South America have so much to offer. With beaches on the coasts of the Pacific, Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, the options are endless: for the active there's surfing and diving, while others can enjoy a wealth of watersports and time out in the sunshine.
  • Southeast Asia - dotted with stunning beach spots, southeast Asia continues to be popular with families and couples looking to escape a little further from home. There's more choice than ever as established resorts in Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia compete with flash new developments in the likes of the Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam and Burma.
