About Time: Top Summer Break Destinations RevealedBy Angelica Malin
As summertime approaches, many people are making travel plans. Preparation is important to a great summer holiday. As you prepare for that ultimate summer vacation, you should cover all the bases. One of the things that you shouldn’t neglect is getting international travel insurance. If you have travel insurance coverage, you will have peace of mind that you are safe and protected should any unforeseen circumstances occur anywhere you are in the world.
There are many wonderful destinations to consider for your summer break. To help you choose, here is a list of the top summer break holiday destinations that guarantees an unforgettable experience:
Hawaii is always at the top of everyone’s list for that ultimate summer holiday destination. And the island of Maui is arguably one of the best places in Hawaii, featuring 30 miles of beaches. Visitors can also visit the stunning Haleakala National Park, a sprawling location that features the island’s highest peak, the dormant volcano Mt. Haleakala and the pools of Ohe’o Gulch. You can sign up for an adrenaline-pumping bike ride along Haleakala’s slopes or drive along trickling streams, gorgeous waterfalls and dense forests on the 50-mile highway known as the Road to Hana. Maui is also home to Wailea Beach, one of the world’s best beaches.
This archipelago which adorns the Indian Ocean is made up of more than a thousand coral islands and atolls. The Maldives has gorgeous, white-sand beaches and extensive coral reefs. You will experience the holiday of a lifetime in a place that Lonely Planet dubbed as ‘nature’s sunken garden’. Aside from snorkelling and sunbathing on the beach, Maldives also offers a dynamic island culture in Maafushi. Since alcohol is banned in this Muslim country, Maafushi has two booze boats located just off the island where you can party the night away.
The Peloponnese, Greece
This lesser-known Greek island is not as popular as Santorini or Mykonos, but this laid-back region is slowly gaining popularity because the other islands are grappling with over-tourism. This region is a favored destination for wellness and fitness enthusiasts, with its famed olive oil massages which have been done since the time of Hippocrates. Greece’s first destination spa, Euphoria Retreat, is also located on this island. The family-run guesthouse Villa Vager Mani, a mansion built in the mid-1800s, offers hiking, kayaking, and scuba-diving.
Amalfi Coast, Italy
There are many stunning places to visit in this 50-kilometer stretch of Italian coastline. Considered as one of the most popular summer holiday destinations, Amalfi Coast does not disappoint with its sheer cliffs, rustic fishing villages, and great cuisine. Picturesque Positano offers a postcard-perfect view of peach and pink houses amidst a chic, fashionista town. Cetara is a traditional fishing village known for anchovies. Sorrento is known for its high-end hotels, busy marinas, and its historic center, featuring a 14th-century church, the Chiesa di San Francesco.
Choose the destination that best suits you and have a blast this summer.
