Help planning a beach holiday - suggestions needed??

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am trying to help my mum and dad plan their holiday and I am getting a little stuck and was hoping some of you may be able to help.

They are in their mid-50s but are quite young for their age.

They are looking to go in Mid-September for 1 week and preferably in Europe as they preferably don't want to be in a plane for more than 5 hours.

They like quality 4/5 star hotels. Budget isn't a consideration; they would prefer to have a good holiday.

They enjoy sunbathing and good (not shingle or coral) beaches, but also like to mix in day trips to different places.

They like nice meals and places that have a good choice of restaurants and then after their meal they like to go for walks, preferably along promenades (!) followed by drinks in nice bars. They also like places where there are a few shops. Saying this, they don't like over-crowded "teenage" places.

To get an idea, the places they have loved / favourite holidays include Puerto Pollensa in Majorca, Ibiza, Mauritius and Sydney.

Hope I have given enough of a background. So, can anyone give any suggestions of resorts they may like?

Thanks so much....

SK
