Winter is only just leaving us in the Northern Hemisphere, but many countries around the world are already basking in that summer sunshine that everyone wants to see a bit of. If you’re already starting to think about your summer holiday for 2013, look no further than this guide to the top destinations for this summer.
Turkey is a country that has been rising in popularity steadily for the past few years and now enjoys its spot as one of the favourite holiday destinations for holiday makers around the world. Visit Marmaris this summer and you’ll be guaranteed a lot of hot sun as well as fun. The bay is protected on all sides by pine-peaked mountains and has crystal clear waters for swimming. Take in the nightlife at the now infamous Bar Street then relax the day away in the sun. There’s plenty for kids to do, and heaps of history and culture for those interested.
This wouldn’t be a list of any holiday destinations without Benidorm – it has everything a tourist could wish for: sun, sea, sand, music and food. Take the kids to one of the many theme parks around the town including Mundomar and Terra Mitica; dance the night away in the Old Town; or simply lounge around the pool and bask in the sun.
Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt
Sharm el Sheikh is the perfect resort for those who love the sun on the beach. Located on the Sinai Peninsula, the cosmopolitan resort is fantastic for snorkelling and diving in the nearby Ras Mohammed National Park which offers some brilliantly colourful sea life.
If you like your holidays to be a little more far flung, why not try staying in the Dominican Republic in the summer of 2013? Of course it has numerous beautiful white sandy beaches, but it also offers a huge range of activities for the more adventurous among your family such as white water rafting and monster trucking.
This is the one place the kids will love to visit. Remember summer isn’t just about lounging around in the sun on beaches when you have a family, you need to keep them entertained too! Home to Disneyworld, Seaworld and Universal Studios, you definitely won’t be stuck for things to do.
