How often do you get to be really, truly spontaneous these days? It could be as small as buying that banoffee muffin you really fancy with your coffee or as fun as test-driving the car you saw as you passed the garage forecourt. Whether it puts a smile on your face or gives you happy butterflies in your tummy, there’s nothing else quite like doing something in the moment. So, if you’re about to book a last-minute holiday, you’re in for a treat! We’ve got a fantastic range of getaways where the beach is waiting for you this summer. Here are three of my top picks for the best late escapes.
smartline Playa Park, Fuerteventura
Our rating: 4 stars
This hotel’s not only stylish and relaxing, it’s also easy on the bank balance as it’s part of our very own range of budget-conscious smartline Hotels, and really flexible, too. I love that you can pick between Self Catering and All Inclusive, so you can have the kind of holiday you really want without having to compromise on where you stay. Not only that, you can even book smartline Playa Park with tickets to Acua waterpark included, or choose to stay in the new Premium section. It’s such a great choice for both families and couples!
Playa Olid, Tenerife
Our rating: 3 stars
I don’t know about you but I really like to be able to walk everywhere when I’m on holiday, so I look out for hotels like Playa Olid that aren’t too far from the beach. Even better, there are some bars and restaurants just 200m away; perfect! You’ve also got a choice of swimming pools for those chilled-out days, plus fun for the kids with a splash pool, kids’ club and teens’ club, so you’ll feel right at home if you’ve got family in tow.
Cala Blanca Sun Hotel, Menorca
Our rating: 4 stars
Does your perfect holiday include lots of peace and quiet? Well, you might have just found your dream last-minute break at the adult-focused Cala Blanca Sun Hotel! Grab a cocktail for a lazy day at the pool, stroll to the beach for the classic sand-and-sea combo, or head into the centre of Cala Blanca. You’ll also be really close to the beautiful city of Ciutadella; I really enjoyed my visit there when I was in Menorca so can highly recommend catching the bus for a day exploring.
