There are several Mediterranean hotspots that have gained sparkling reputations for food, beaches and nightlife and with a range of packages and deals to be had online, there is no excuse to stop you from paying them a visit.
One of the gems of the Mediterranean, the Maltese archipelago is a sumptuous melting pot of cultural delights. Indeed, with no fewer than nine UNESCO World Heritage sites spread across the islands, Malta holidays certainly afford opportunities for exploration as well as sun worshipping.
The sweeping beaches and vibrant nightlife make this a destination for plenty of relaxation and fun, while a wide range of budget accommodation means it’s not difficult to find somewhere to stay for less.
Attard is a top visitor’s choice in Malta, with its picturesque mix of flowering gardens and large villas. Those looking for a real retreat can’t do much better than Maghtab, a small rural village in the north of the country that features lovely scenery in a secluded setting.
Like Malta, this is a country with an ancient history, which infuses Turkey holidays with a spectacular combination of the old and the new. Whether it’s haggling in bazaars, scuba diving in clear blue waters or dancing the night away, Turkey has something for everyone.
There are luxurious beach resorts with a range of enjoyable activities, centuries-old churches and historic buildings and bustling markets where vibrant colours and delicate fragrances will entice you.
Bodrum is gaining a fantastic reputation as a go-to spot in Turkey, and is a fantastic location for those wanting an affordable holiday. Bodrum holidays have activities for all the family; visitors can treat themselves to a cleansing Turkish bath, take a trip to the country’s biggest water park or stop in at the fascinating Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
Cheap holidays to Dalaman are also a great choice for sun-seekers. Situated on the picturesque Turquoise Coast and home to numerous restaurants serving up delicious local cuisine, Dalaman is relaxing and lively in equal measure.
With holidays to both locations on offer at Thomas Cook, the decision between Turkey and Malta really comes down to personal choice. Both islands are filled with spots that are ideal for different sorts of breaks, whether you’re on a romantic getaway or family trip with kids.
