1. Portugal

Portugal is one of the most popular spots in Southern Europe, and looking at the video below it’s easy to see why.

With iconic scenery, history, gastronomy, and golf, Portugal has to feature in any list of top European holiday destinations. Plus, there are equally incredible resort options thanks to the Domes Collection

2. Norway 

Speaking of iconic scenery, countries don’t come much prettier than Norway.

Granted, a country that sees half its landmass lie further north than the Arctic Circle doesn’t emanate tropical vibes. But it’s not called the land of the midnight sun for nothing!

Our Norwegian Fjords Cruise offer will get you up close and personal with some of the best cities and sights in this stunning location. Truly once-in-a-lifetime stuff!

3. Morocco

From the frigid landscape of the Arctic Circle to the scorched shores of Northern Africa. Morocco is, rightly, on many people’s must-travel list. 

Discover the bustling streets of the capital at luxurious resorts like Be Live Collection Marrakech Adults-Only. Or travel south to Guelmim and come face-to-face with one of the planet’s most desolate, yet mesmerising locations. The Sahara Desert.

4. Greece 

Greece boasts staggering coastlines along the Ioanian, Aegean, and Mediterranean Seas. Picturesque spots like Santorini, Mykonos, and Corfu are always a hit with families and couples looking for a short-haul sun-soaked sojourn. 

Meanwhile, as synonymous with mouth-watering cuisine as locations like Italy, Greece is a huge hit with foodies. Plus, budget-conscious travellers can also have their fill of adventure thanks to the choice of free things to do.

5. Egypt 

An intoxicating fusion of year-round sun, breathtaking beaches, ancient sites, and high-quality affordable resorts has ensured Egypt’s status as a winter sun staple. 

Sun-soaked locales like Hurghada, Sharm el-Sheikh, and Makadi Bay are ever popular with Egyptian explorers. But, if you want more adventure than you can find on the surface, then the Red Sea coast is a famous diving location too.

6. Lanzarote

The perpetual sun is also one of the main reasons we love flocking back to Lanzarote every year. This sun-drenched destination offers a safe holiday haven for families looking to spend some quality time on the beach without remortgaging the house. 

However, if you’re seeking a more grown-up experience in the Balearics, then how about checking out five-star Secrets Lanzarote Resort & Spa? A luxurious, adults-only, slice of beachfront bliss.

7. Cape Verde 

Moving away from Europe briefly, we come close to the shores of West Africa and a collection of around 10 idyllic islands floating in the Atlantic Ocean. 

Boa Vista and Sal island are the two most popular destinations. From the architecture to the cuisine, you’ll find an enchanting blend of African, Brazilian, and Portuguese influences. RIU Touareg Resort displays them all perfectly.

8. Bali 

If you’ve ever heard of picture-perfect Bali, then you’ll know all about its paradisical atmosphere of striking beaches, ideal surf conditions, charming culture, and budget-friendly living. 

But, alongside this paired-back demeanour lies a host of extraordinary resorts, welcoming you to an Indonesian oasis through high-end opulence. 

@flossys_wonderland So many incredible spots I could go on and onnnn🏝🍇🐠🧜🏼‍♀️🌊 #bali #travelinspo #balitips #balitravel #balitravelguide #balitraveltips ♬ Cool Kids (our sped up version) – Echosmith

9. Majorca

Back on the continent. Next on our list of top tropical holiday destinations is the more familiar face of Majorca. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Majorca is another marvellous Mediterranean paradise.

A hit with families, the island has so much to offer. From beautiful beaches and high-end resorts, like Zafiro Palace Andratx, to the vibrant nightlife of Magaluf and Palma Nova.

10. Ibiza 

Speaking of vibrant nightlife, the epic after-dark activities on the White Island need no introduction. 

However, there’s more to Ibiza than clubs and partying students. Idyllic northern areas like Portinax, Cala Llonga, Puerto San Miguel, and Santa Eulalia promise more chilled-out and natural escapes. Or there’s always the charming west coast and our latest location, TRS Ibiza Hotel.

11. Turkey

If you’ve still got some energy left after Ibiza, then how about we take a final jaunt over to Western Africa and the sandy stretches of Turkey. Flanked by the Mediterranean and Black Sea there are a host of special and affordable spots here. 

But, we think we may have found one of the best in Titanic Mardan Palace. A five-star beachfront destination staring out into the sparkling Med. 

We’re on TikTok too!
