    Lazy beach days

Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way - Sliabh Liag (Slieve League) Co. Donegal

Discover south west Donegal and the beauty of the Sliabh Liag (Slieve League) cliffs and surrounding area.

Season Opener

Attention all water nymphs, the sea is open! The traditional “Anbaden” ceremony in Travemünde is a MUST for all really bold and daring swimmers. All the rest can celebrate the heroes after their dip in the water.

San Diego, California

San Diego is often called “America’s Finest City,” and it isn’t difficult to see why. The eighth largest city in the United States offers heaps of attractions, culture and an undeniable cosmopolitan vibe, but you’d never guess its size by the emphatically laid-back feeling you get from this Southern California city, its people and of course its famously wonderful weather. With year-round temperatures in the 70s (21°C) and almost constant sunshine, there is no such thing as the wrong time to visit it and enjoy world-class museums, 5-star dining, internationally famous beaches and an unbeatable hospitality.

Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way – Malin Head, Co. Donegal

Discover the very top of Ireland at Malin Head, Co. Donegal. The tip of the Inishowen peninsula.

Capistrano Beach, California

Capistrano Beach's charming small town atmosphere and myriad of recreational opportunities have christened it a viable vacation destination. Branching off from the city of Dana Point, “Capo Beach” is also bordered on by the vivacious Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south. As one of the few remaining "beach towns" in the busy Orange County area, Capo Beach has (impressively) avoided much of the commercialization common to the area. This makes for a great, uncongested stay.

Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way – Old Head of Kinsale, Co. Cork

Discover the beauty of Kinsale in Co. Cork and the magnificent Old Head.

Fort Myers

Chosen as a winter refuge by Thomas Edison at the turn of the last century, Fort Myers sits away from busier and more opulent Florida centers, maintaining the carefree, low-key atmosphere of a sea town. Assuming beach life is Fort Myers's only attraction would be a mistake - the town center boasts a vibrant street life, with a plethora of indie art galleries and interesting spots for history and science lovers. The area's natural beauty continues inland, where protected animal species take shelter among mangroves and narrow bayou bends.

Aruba

Sun-drenched beaches awash with tourists sit next to desert wilderness in Aruba, one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean. With warm and sunny weather all year round, the island seems frozen in a timeless holiday atmosphere, with turquoise ocean waters washing over Aruba's soft warm sand. The nightlife bursts with Latin music and exotic sounds, and exciting shopping and dining experiences await at every corner. Stronger waves break against the eastern coast, deserted and swept over by wind – exploring it will lead the most adventurous visitors to breathtaking natural beauty.

Ayia Napa – Protaras

Once only a small fishing village, Ayia Napa has become one of the world's best travel destinations, known as a cosmopolitan resort area. Located on the eastern coast of Cyprus, it is a town of great beauty, full of history and culture, with friendly and hospitable people. Nearby Protaras is a popular resort area with some of the world's best golden beaches, crystal clear waters and lively entertainment. Whether you are looking for fascinating history, vibrant culture and nightlife, astounding natural beauty or a relaxing beach vacation, together these areas make up one of the Mediterranean's most desirable destinations.

A Coruña

A Coruña is a busy and attractive city at the very tip of Galicia. This is a perfect place to enjoy a gentle stroll along the streets and avenues, where it is possible to discover Roman architecture as well as modern innovative buildings. The atmosphere in the many magnificent town squares is excellent and full of joy of life on a hot summer’s day. Outside the town centre the beaches, the marina, the fishing port and the commercial port still play a very important role for the people of A Coruña.

Phuket

Surrounded by clear blue water, Phuket has all the right ingredients for an unforgettable tropical vacation: its palm fringed beaches are of soft, clean sand, it has a vibrant nightlife and you can enjoy the most wide-ranging cuisine – you name it, you can eat it in Phuket. For several years Phuket has topped the polls as a holiday paradise, and not without a reason, as the island is a spectacular destination. Add all this to the most welcoming people in the world, and you can see why travellers love it.

Newquay

The coast of dreams, ravaged by the Atlantic Ocean and lined by spectacular sandy beaches, where you will find towering cliffs sheltering small rock pools. The sea is teeming with life, and the crystal-clear water is perfectly alluring, whether you are dreaming of a relaxing swim or an adrenaline-pumped afternoon of extreme sports. If you shy away from the surf, you can admire the spectacular views from above as you stroll along the tops of the cliffs or wander back into town and into one of the many delightful gardens.

Broome

Broome is situated in North-Western Australia, a two and a half hour flight from Perth. The surrounding region is full of colour, culture and captivating scenery. Fiery red ochre cliffs contrast with the unspoilt turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, dinosaur footprints tell secrets of ancient days and a multi-cultural population provides arts, performances and irresistible cuisine. The pearling industry has been an important part of the region's economy. Many places and shops offer visitors closer insight into the pearl trade and the jewellery craft.
