TurkeyThis is a destination that has crept up the personal holiday destination lists for the last few years and, for value for money, it seems to be a hard one to beat. There’s a great selection of hotels for all budgets and holiday types.SpainThe resorts of Benidorm, Torremolinos, Fuengirola, Malaga and Marbella are the main tourist areas for UK visitors to Spain but, remember, you can still venture out of these resorts to find traditional markets and hillside villages if you want to sample a little culture. Don’t forget to try the Spanish Tapas as well!BalearicsThe clubbing towns of San Antonio in Ibiza and Magaluf in Majorca are always buzzing with excitement in the evenings, but there is far more to discover in the Balearic islands with a great selection of beautiful beaches and holidays suitable for all tastes.Canary IslandsOff the north-west African coast, with nice temperatures all year, the Canary Islands of Tenerife, Lanzarote, Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura have been a magnet for British holiday makers.PortugalThe Algarve, on the southern coast of Portugal, has been a well visited tourist destination due to the short flight times from the UK.Greek IslandsGreek Islands have fantastic charm, with starring roles in several films, with beauty in abundance.CyprusLocated in the eastern Mediterranean, the summer months in Cyprus (like many of our choices) are hot. Beautiful scenery and a friendly culture, Cyprus has a range of popular resorts all along its coastline.

CubaOk, this is a long-haul destination, and perhaps is not going to be as popular as some alternative destinations but we feel it’s definitely worth a mention although perhaps not between August and September when the hurricane season is underway – you can get cheaper prices during this off-season period though.CroatiaSince the war during the early 1990s, tourism in Croatia is really starting to pick up (it was popular before the war). It’s a country steeped in history and we believe it is thoroughly justified to be in our top 10, although as an upcoming destination.FranceFrance is such a short trip across the English Channel by ferry, or train. Once across the Channel you are free to go wherever you please!Whatever destination you choose this year, please have a fantastic 2011 summer holiday!
