Top European destinations for group holidays
Though the summer may seem a long way off right now, it’s guaranteed to come round faster than you think. If you and your friends are planning an exotic getaway to celebrate the end of exams or to make the most of your summer break, now’s the perfect time to start planning your escape to the sun.
A tried and tested holiday destination, Portugal remains one of the cheapest countries in Western Europe.
With its great value package deals, soft, sandy beaches and guaranteed sunshine, the country’s Algarve region is the most popular for groups of all ages. Alternatively, if you and your friends want to get off the beaten track, head slightly north of the Algarve to the Alentejo region and enjoy delicious food, unspoiled villages and mile upon mile of deserted beaches.
Though not as cheap as it once was, Greece still offers the party atmosphere most Brits are looking for, as well as great food and guaranteed sunshine.
If you’re planning on partying well into the wee hours, head to Corfu, Mykonos or Zakynthos where you’ll find plenty of bars, clubs and cheap hotels as well as some of Europe’s best beaches.
A cheaper alternative to Greece, Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach Resort is fast earning itself a reputation as one of summer party capitals of Europe.
Located 35km north of Burgas, the destination has more cheap hotels, low cost bars and all night clubs than you can shake a stick at.
What Berlin lacks in white sandy beaches and sun loungers, it more than makes up for in super clubs, trendy bars and kebab shops. The perfect destination for a group weekend away, Berlin is cheap, fun and packed full of character.
If you want to soak up some sun during your German getaway, head to one of the many lakes that surround the city. The perfect places to relax with a cold beer and a picnic, these idyllic lakes are popular with locals and visitors alike.
Ibiza and Majorca are by far the most popular Balearic Islands for group holidays. The party towns of Magaluf and San Antonio attract visitors from far and wide, with Ibiza’s clubs a big draw for music lovers.
If you’re looking for a cheap group holiday, Majorca is a better option as the club entry fees and drink prices of Ibiza can quickly make a dent in your holiday budget.
