Great alternative’ to Spain’s Costa del Sol has ‘stunning beaches’ and ‘delicious food’ | Travel News | Travel


Spain is the UK’s leading holiday destination but there are several other European hotspots where Britons might have the ability to enjoy a less expensive break.

Even though it’s often least expensive to book flights as far prematurely as possible, Britons can still save in the event that they’re flexible on destination.

While Spain’s beaches are world-renowned, there are many other destinations with “stunning beaches” just a brief flight away.

Express.co.uk spoke to David Doughty, travel expert and CEO of Admiral Jet, for his top recommendations.

Whether it’s Portugal, Greece or Turkey, there are plenty of fantastic alternatives to Spain this summer.

David said: “The Algarve region of Portugal is an excellent alternative to Spain’s Costa del Sol, with loads of stunning beaches, delicious seafood and charming towns to meander through.

“You could find great deals on accommodation, especially for those who’re willing to remain a bit further away from the fundamental tourist areas.

“I like to recommend exploring the rugged coastline and taking a ship trip to some hidden coves and caves along the best way.”


David said: “The island of Crete has some beautiful beaches and quaint villages, in addition to some fascinating historical sites.

“The weather is warm, and the persons are welcoming and friendly. And for those who’re on the lookout for a celebration atmosphere, I suggest you take a look at the island of Ios, it’s known for its vigorous nightlife, and there are many reasonably priced places to remain.”

Skyscanner recently shared that the most cost effective day to fly to Greece is a Monday and Britons are higher waiting until the top of the varsity holidays for a break.


David really useful Turkey’s gorgeous Bodrum Peninsula to Express.co.uk as a budget selection.

He said: “You could find some great deals on all-inclusive resorts, especially for those who’re willing to travel outside peak season.

“Don’t forget to explore the local markets and sample some delicious Turkish cuisine when you’re there.”
