Travel to Lisbon for a city beach break

Lisbon has emerged as one of the hottest spots for a weekend beach break in recent years – with a wave of new restaurants and bars springing up, along with rejuvenated markets and a spruced up central square. There’s also no shortage of wild Atlantic beaches. Just a 30-45 minute drive from the city you’ll find Guincho, Adraga, and Grande – all of which are excellent surf spots. If you want to learn to surf in Lisbon, book a lesson at Moana Surf School in Cascais. After a day in the sun, check out the local foodie scene at the Time Out Market at Mercado da Ribeira where top local chefs and restaurants have set up food stalls in a canteen-style hall, or drop into Sol e Pesca, a casual fishing-themed bar that serves only tinned seafood. 

Fly to Malaga for sun and culture

With around 320 days of sunshine each year, there’s no better place for a weekend beach break in Spain than Malaga. While the city serves as a gateway to the beaches and resorts of the Costa del Sol, there’s plenty more to do here than simply bask in the sun. There are over 30 museums in the city – from the colourful Pompidou Centre and the Picasso Museum, which celebrates the famous painter who was born in the city, to the fascinating Automobile & Fashion Museum. You can also explore street art in the hip Soho neighbourhood, which has been transformed into an open-air gallery by the Maus project. If you simply can’t stay away from the beaches, hire a bike and cycle along the coastal path to Pedregalejo, a tiny fishing village with a beach. While there, sample some of the local seafood at El Cabra

Visit Palma de Mallorca for a romantic getaway

With more than 200 beaches – over 40 of them designated as Blue Flag – around its coastline, Mallorca is the stuff summer dreams are made of. The capital, Palma, offers the perfect base from which to explore the Spanish island on a short beach holiday. On arrival, take a stroll along the tree-lined Passeig del Born boulevard to get your bearings, and explore the romantic laneways of the Sa Llotja neighbourhood. The urban beach at Ca’n Pere Antoni is dramatically overlooked by the city’s landmark Cathedral Santa Maria of Palma. It can get busy in summer, but there’s soft, white sand and plenty of bars, beach clubs and restaurants. Dodge the crowds by heading for Portixol, the next beach along – which is quieter and also served by excellent restaurants. If you feel the need to do something more active than laze in the sun, try a yoga class at Zunray Yoga

Visit Kefalonia – the perfect Greek island getaway

Kefalonia is the perfect destination for a Greek island getaway. Its rugged, dramatic coastline is made up of sandy coves, pebbly beaches and hidden bays – many of which are only accessible on foot. Myrtos in the north is one of the longest beaches on the island, and is regularly recognised as the one of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. Take in the view from the surrounding cliffs and don’t miss the sunset. Antisamos, near the port of Sami, was used as a location for the film of Captain Corelli’s Mandolin – and it’s easy to see why. Surrounded by lush vegetation, the Blue Flag beach has white sands and turquoise water. For adventurous beachgoers it also has Extreme Watersports Kefalonia, which offers everything from snorkelling to wakeboarding. For something different, head to Xi in the southwest of the island. It’s relatively accessible and has shallow waters, beach bars, sun loungers and watersports facilities such as jet skis and banana rides.

Fly to Croatia and discover Split's stunning beaches

The entire coastline of the Split peninsula in Croatia is dotted with beautiful beaches, making it a great destination for a sun and sand holiday. One of the best-kept beaches in Split is Trstenik, maintained by the Radisson Blu Resort Split. There’s a VIP area for hotel guests, but the rest of the pebbled beach is open to the public and ideal for families holidaying with children. Žnjan beach is just around the corner and is also popular with families. If you want a taste of local culture, head to Bačvice, a sandy urban beach with plenty of sun loungers where locals gather to play picigin, a traditional beach ball game. It’s home to a thriving nightlife scene and the Split Beach Festival in August. If you’re looking to escape the crowds, head for the pebbly beaches on the Marjan Peninsula, including Jezinac and Kastelet.

Visit Nice for sun, sand and shopping

Nice and the surrounding area is a great destination for a city beach break even in the winter months, thanks to its consistently sunny weather. The resort town of Menton is a short 40 minute drive from the city, and offers beautiful beaches and stunning views. There’s even a two-hour coastal cliff walk from Menton to Monaco, which passes through Roquebrune-Cap-Martin and Villa E-1027, a modernist villa designed by Eileen Gray and – in many people’s eyes – vandalised by renowned architect Le Corbusier, who painted murals onto its plain white walls. Architecture buffs often visit to pay their respects to “Corb”, who drowned off the coast and is buried in the cemetery above the town – which is worth visiting for the sea views alone. Foodies won’t want to miss Mirazur, a two-Michelin-starred restaurant that consistently makes it into the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
