Book in your holiday leave - these are our top vacation destinations to visit in 2018.
CALA MONDRAGO, MALLORCA, SPAIN
For crystal blue waters and the whitest sand in Europe, Cala Mondrago is a must.. Located within Mondrago National Park in South East Mallorca, it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in Europe to visit. When not exploring the pristine coastlines and coves in the area, spend the day eating seafood on the beach and drinking sangria from your lilo.
The island of Capri is home to some of the most dramatic landmarks in Europe. From the larger than life rock formations of Faraglioni to the magical Blue Grotto, Capri is full of treasures to explore. There’s no shortage of picture postcard views either - from down on the beaches or the many vantage points dotted along the hillside. For a fully immersive experience, be sure to take the chance to explore the coastline by boat and go diving in the Blue Grotto.
There’s no destination more photogenic than Positano. This popular town on the Amalfi Coast is instantly recognisable thanks to the colourful houses that cascade down the hillside. There’s nothing more special than arriving at night to wake up to this iconic Italian view.
OIA, SANTORINI, GREECE
Nestled on the northern end of the island of Santorini, Oia is another iconic holiday destination famed for its whitewashed streets, caldera views, and spectacular sunsets. It’s also home to some of the best calamari that you’ll ever eat. Just be prepared to negotiate the massive crowds during the peak season.
Live that luxe French lifestyle in the neighbouring towns of Cap-d’Ail and Cap Ferrat. Located between the Riviera resort town of Nice and the millionaire’s playground of Monaco, there’s nothing better than soaking up the sunshine, sampling all the great food and wine the region has to offer, and watching the big luxury boats pulling up to dock (who knows, you might even spot a celeb or two!)
