With all the changeable weather we’re having at the moment it’s no wonder that many of us are dreaming of summer holidays on the beach. White sands, warm waters and the gorgeous waiter bring you yet another cocktail. It’s all a very nice thought but your bank balance won’t look too healthy if you suddenly take up a jet set lifestyle.
Or will it? Going on holiday doesn’t have to give your bank manager a heart attack. Here are some of the best bargain beach breaks for 2013 from www.beatthebrochure.com that will give you your vitamin D fix without blowing your budget.
- The Adriatic Coast, Albania
It might not be the most obvious choice for a beach holiday but it’s already proving popular with adventurous travellers. Albania has 380 miles of coast line and plenty of pretty seaside villages to choose from. A week long break that combines exploring historic towns with plenty of beach time should have you feeling fresh as a daisy by the time you get home.
- Silver Island, Greece
If you’ve always dreamed of having your own private island then this is the holiday for you. Unfortunately even we couldn’t provide a private island without spending big bucks, but we’ve found one for you to share. Silver Island provides guests with 60 acres of former olive farms and secluded beaches to explore. It’s the ideal location if you’re looking for privacy and rustic charm.
- Almeria, Spain
Not only does this destination offer visitors some of the most wild and untouched beaches in Europe but you can also explore quaint whitewashed fishing villages and the nearby Cabo de Gata-Nijar National Park. The National Park has meant that the area has been saved from development making it one of the best untamed locations in Europe. Great for those that want to get wet and wild.
- Puglia, Italy
If you like exploring the local heritage when on holiday but you don’t want tweeness then visit Calcebianca in the Pugliese countryside. When you’ve had your fill of Calcebianca then the pretty town of Ostuni should be next on your list. The local area also has some great beaches so you can combine your adventures with plenty of down time catching some rays.
