Let’s Go to the Beach! Summer Beach Spots in Europe
Whether you’re in love with Italiano, heading to Espanol, or fancy a bit of Greek, Europe is brimming with top beach spots to top up your tan and enjoy the sun. The only major decision you have is where to go, and that is where you may struggle to narrow down your choices for your Neilson Beach Holidays.
To ease your decisions, let’s have a look at a few of the best spots to head in Europe, perfect for hitting the beach and worshipping the sun.
1) Zakynthos (Zante) – Greece
Despite having gone through a few economical problems of late, Greece’s beaches remain top spots for summer fun. Zante, to give it the shorter name, is perfect for those wanting something lively during the evenings, and chilled out during the day. This is a Club 18-30s resort, so keep that in mind, but it’s easy enough to avoid the major party scene if you wish.
2) Marmaris, Turkey
Turkey in generally is a hugely popular summer destination, mainly thanks to its cheapness, yet Marmaris is one of those summer beach spots that will always be popular. Full of activities for young and old, nightlife, beach life, and plenty of fun, this is one of those places that will satisfy every need, and on a bit of a budget too.
3) Lanzarote, Canary Islands
Year around sun? Check! Lanzarote is a resort that never closes, and because of that you can be guaranteed sunshine and a tan regardless of the month. The beaches are volcanic, so add a different spin on a beach day, with plenty of water-sports and activities, again with something for everyone. The nearby islands of Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Tenerife are equally as popular.
4) Sunny Beach, Bulgaria
Sounds exactly like it is – sunny and a beach! Again, cheap, and again lively, with a Club 18-30s resort, this particular destination will be easy on the wallet, but high in excitement and activities. The nearby Bulgarian cities are also good to visit for plenty of culture and history, meaning it’s easy to escape the beach if you should so wish, just for a day.
5) Benidorm, Spain
A huge favourite, mainly due to the TV series in the same name (if you don’t know it, Google it, it’s funny), and another year around resort, Benidorm is warm, sunny, and the beach is always packed. For nearby Brits, it’s like a home away from home, but with plenty of Spanish history and culture nearby for those that wish to find out a little bit more.
These are just five popular European beach resorts, and believe me, there are stacks more. It all depends on what you’re looking for and what budget you have, but you will never be short of choice.
