Beach bum late getaways


It’s that time of year again when offices start to resemble ghost towns, your emails are answered by a flurry of out of offices and you start to day dream about a double scoop gelato on the beach… If you are the only one left in the office waiting until the last minute to book a barginous late deal, then here are three of our favourite holiday destinations for beach bums!

We are getting serious holiday envy drooling over pictures of stunning crystal clear waters and the beautiful medieval architecture of Dubrovnik. Croatia is quickly becoming ‘THE’ place to go for a summer holiday in Europe - with so much to do there, it’s no wonder!

You can take a ferry ride along the postcard perfect Dalmatian Coast, discover the Roman ruins of Diocletian’s Palace or for the more adventurous, go sailing and diving in the clear waters of the Adriatic Sea. There are plenty of affordable flight/hotel packages to Croatia too, allowing you to experience this magnificent European gem without spending a fortune.

If you want a late summer holiday destination that’s more tropical, why not visit the Maldives? Since September is the tail end of the monsoon season, flights and hotel rates are actually a lot cheaper! Sure, there’s a small chance of tropical storms while you’re there, but that won’t detract from the sheer beauty of these Indian Ocean atolls (atolls are ring-shaped coral reef!).

The Maldives is famous as a place to relax and unwind. With breathtaking beaches, secluded coves and plenty of Spa and Wellness centres, this beach holiday lends itself perfectly to a romantic get away.

A versatile island that caters for everyone, with sandy beaches, impressive architectural sites to marvel and a vibrant nightlife - there is something for everyone. If your late deal involves the children then Cyprus could be for you. With Europe’s biggest water park WaterWorld, themed around Greek mythology, there is fun for kids and adults alike. For those who dare there is a 124-metre waterslide, but you are more likely to find us in the relaxing lazy river!

Have we given you some food for thought?
