We all love to daydream about our beach holidays months in advance. In fact, there’s nothing nicer to get you through the sleet and hail of winter than imagining yourself soaking up the sunshine on a beach. The last thing that you want is for the reality to fall short of the dream, so make sure that any beach holiday you book has the following key ingredients:
Shingle beaches, and those coarse, scratchy dark sand beaches, simply won’t cut it. For the ultimate beach holiday you need soft, golden or white sand. When choosing your resort it should say in the description what type of beach is nearby, and if it doesn’t then be sure to do your research online or ask your tour operator.
And Lots Of It!
In peak season, the best beaches can get crowded, so make sure that you choose a resort with a beach long enough to accommodate all eager holidaymakers. Alcudia boasts the longest beach in Majorca, at over five miles long, so you’re sure to find plenty of space for sunbathing, playing games and anything else that takes your fancy!
A Lively Beach Scene
Secluded beaches make for great excursions, but you want the beach that you’re closest to to have some life. A beach with a promenade of bars, cafes and restaurants is ideal, as you won’t have to go far for refreshments. If you’ve found a holiday resort with a large, lively, soft sand beach then what you need to do next is find hotels nearby. To enjoy the perfect beach holiday you need to stay within walking distance of the sand, and Airtours has some fantastic hotels located right on the beachfront. Once you’ve booked your ideal beach holiday, all that remains is to dream away the days until you’re lounging on the sands, soaking up the sun, with a cocktail in one hand and a bestseller in the other.
