Step into paradise by taking a dip in the clear turquoise waters of Elafonisi in the Southwest of Crete. Featuring a near pristine sandy beach that, in certain lights, reveals shades of pink. It’s truly a picture postcard destination. The Mediterranean Sea meets the Libyan Sea, creating warm currents in the shallow waters, only disturbed by small islands and coves.
If you enjoy water but don’t fancy a beach holiday, then plunge into one of Iceland’s hot springs. These volcanically heated pools are often surrounded by stunning, sometimes icy, scenery. For locals meeting in the geothermal pools is just a way of life, much like meeting in a pub in the UK. Visitors can enjoy a warm bath on a winter’s evening whilst staring up at the clear skies.
Ithaa Undersea Restaurant
Enjoy your dinner with a panoramic underwater view. The Ithaa Undersea Restaurant opened in April 2005 and has even become a wedding venue on occasions! Located 5 metres under the sea at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to dine with a difference.
If you’re travelling with energetic friends or looking to occupy the kids, then consider visiting Siam Park in Tenerife. It’s often labelled the world’s best water park, featuring 15 different attractions to splash around in. There is even a fake beach featuring a rather impressive wave machine. The eight year old inside me is sold.
