Cies Islands, Spain



Fine sand, turquoise water, and a golden sun make this archipelago of this trio of islands off Galicia’s west coast a true Paradise, almost comparable to the Seychelles capital. In the past, it was a pirate shelter, while now it is a national park. The number of tourists is limited and so nature is pristine and the atmosphere is peaceful. There are no cars, no hotels; just a campsite and you can stay for only a week. A holiday here will bring you all the calm and tranquility you need before coming back to your duties in your hometown.

Porquerolles, France

With its white sand beaches and pristine, Porquerolles remembers a desert island where you can breathe the intoxicating scent of eucalyptus, pine, and rosemary. It is the largest of the islands of the Hyères archipelago and is located on the Mediterranean coast of France, between Toulon and Saint Tropez. On the north coast, there is a small village with few inhabitants who play petanque in the street in the evening.

Ibiza, Spain

Whether you want to party at the clubs or take in spectacular scenery, the Spanish island of Ibiza has plenty of options.  Young adults flock to world-famous clubs including Pacha, Amnesia and Club Privilege.  Keep a watch out for celebrities and models...

If drinking and dancing isn't your thing, you can slow down the pace by finding a spot at the Es Vedrà from which to watch the amazing sunsets Ibiza offers up each evening.  The uninhabited nature reserve is off the western coast in Cala d'Hort.

If you’re planning a trip to Ibiza with your friends this city is the best place for your holiday deals.

Without a doubt, the island of Ibiza is one of the best places to visit in the world.

São Miguel, Portugal

This Island is part of the Azores archipelago. Its capital, Ponte Delgada, still shows the opulent wealth of the settlers with its baroque churches. It is an island little known today, but beautiful to discover: pristine beaches, the chance to see the whales and to walk on its plateaus that bubbling over the volcanic springs make this place mysterious and beautiful.

Gran Canaria, Spain



Gran Canaria is the holiday place per excellence and here you can find practically everything you are looking for: hidden corners of the paradise of extraordinary beauty, cheap accommodation, hotels, castles, walks, and possibilities to party and unleash until morning.

The south of the island has earned a reputation as an “amusement store” thanks to the offer of gigantic hotels, resorts, parties, water sports, nightlife and plenty of beaches. Take a look at Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas if you are interested in these activities, but keep in mind that you can always take a break from social life and cut out time for you to spend relaxing in contact with nature.

Head into the heart of the island and you will find yourself surrounded by palm trees, you can admire the magnificent mountain scenery and the countryside dotted with ancient villages: the perfect place for a regenerating excursion.

So, if you’re looking for cheap holidays, Gran Canaria is the place to go. Also, we can say that this island is one of the best family holiday destinations of all times.

Gozo, Malta

Part of the archipelago of the Calypsoea Islands can be reached from Malta by ferry and is a destination for snorkelers, given the celebrity of its seabed. Near the bay of Ramla is what is supposed to be the legendary cave of the nymph Calypso, mentioned in Homer's Odyssey. The tourist offer of the island is also made up of historical sites and the temples of Ggantija.

Lofoten, Norway

OK, so this is technically not one island but a whole archipelago. Jagged peaks pierce the sky above sheltered bays and time-worn fishing villages, with wall-to-wall wows around every corner. Bring a car so you can drive the staggering E10 road between the main islands of Austvågøy, Vestvågøy, Flakstadøy, and Moskenesøy. And no matter what time of the year, do not forget your camera, to capture the magical midnight light or a vicious Arctic snowstorm.

Graciosa, Spain

Beach weather all year round.
If you travel to Lanzarote you will feel like you’ve landed on another planet, with black-lava fields and more than 200 volcanic cones making up a surreal landscape

The island is only a half-hour ferry ride away, just enough to keep most tourists away. It’s a sleepy island of just one small fishing village (Caleta del Sebo), but the move is to make off to the powder-soft beaches and go diving in the surrounding marine reserve.

Lipari, Italy

The jewel of the Aeolian Islands is all to be discovered: the volcanic beaches, the narrow streets full of shops and restaurants in Lipari center, the thermal baths of San Calogero and the opportunity to take part in many excursions to Panarea, Stromboli, and Vulcano.

We advise you, since you are here, to visit absolutely Panarea and take a swim on the black beaches of Stromboli. Lipari is one of the best places to visit in this amazing country.
