Look no further than Maspalomas beach on the south side of Gran Canaria. This sandy beach is known for its enormous expanse of sand dunes and most importantly for its all year sunshine.
Head to the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh and relax amid the palm trees and crystal clear waters. Not to mention the vast amount of colourful fish and coral waiting just below the surface of the Red Sea. What are you waiting for, grab your snorkel and head to Egypt.
Cyprus is a great place for a family holiday. Head to Coral Bay if you’re looking for a safe beach for the kids on while you soak up the rays from the comfort of a sun lounger.
Mexico Caribbean Coast
