Whether you recognise Dubrovnik from its appearance in Game of Thrones, or just wish to admire its historic city walls, Dubrovnik is a great place to visit during the summer months. With numerous popular beaches around the bay, Dubrovnik is an ideal spot to soak up some rays. Or why not hike up the mountain for a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding islands? There’s even a cable car up to the top if you don’t feel like trekking. If you take a stroll through Dubrovnik Old Town, you’ll find many architecturally significant churches, towers and sculptures as well as some great seafood served down by the dock.
Tulum in Mexico boasts a variety of beachside activities and awe-inspiring archaeological ruins, for those seeking everything from relaxation to adventure. If you’re looking for something completely new and exciting, check out some of Tulum’s many underwater cave systems where you can snorkel through a series of underground caverns or explore the depths of a secluded watering hole such as Gran Cenote. Otherwise spend your day relaxing at one of the many beach-side restaurants and bars. Whether it’s Ziggy’s Beach or Boa Beach Tulum, you’ll be able to wind down with a beer or cocktail and enjoy some mouth-watering Mexican food.
Lagos is another location perfect for visiting during summer, with its many beaches, caves and Portuguese food. Spend your days kayaking around Lagos’ coves or if you’d prefer to stay dry, you can hike along the clifftops. Lagos also has many beach caves that make for a pictureperfect moment to show your friends and family back home. If exploring on a boat is more to your liking, there’s also catamaran cruises or sightseeing tours of the grottos to choose from.
Tel Aviv, Israel
Situated on the eastern side of the Mediterranean is Tel Aviv, with an exciting blend of ancient culture and modern entertainment. Tel Aviv has a remarkable beach (like the rest of the destinations in this article), but if you’re longing for something a little more cultured, you’d be hard-pressed to complete all that Tel Aviv has to offer. The nearby fishing port of Jaffa has markets to suit all your desires – whether edible or material. If you don’t mind taking a drive, you can admire the archaeological sites of Jerusalem or even head out to the Dead Sea, where you’ll literally be able to float on water.
A great holiday destination whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple or with the whole family, Phuket is renowned for its beaches, temples and cuisine. Take a cruise to the nearby Phi Phi Islands, visit the Big Buddha and surrounding temples, or enjoy some local Thai food at one of the many authentic restaurants the island has to offer.
