Need ideas for last minute beach holiday.

Jump to last reply

We're looking for a last-minute relaxing beach holiday for about 1 week and plan to book it for one of the last 2 weeks of July which means I need to book something in the next week or so. I'm hoping to find something that is no more than about 3-4 hours flight time from England.

I'll be traveling with my two kids (ages 10 and 11) so I'm looking for a good pool and also easy access to the beach. If there is a water park nearby that would be great, but not required. We'd also be interested in exploring for a day or two while there. We usually do self-catering but for this trip I'm looking to do at least half-board and possibly all-inclusive.

I've been looking at places in Majorca, Menorca, Tunisia, Turkey, and Cyprus so far. I'm not so picky about the location as long as it isn't too far. I'm looking for a place with good reviews. I don't really care if there is too much nightly entertainment or kids clubs so would actually prefer a slightly quieter resort.

So far I'm just searching through Thomas Cook, First Choice, and other sites but I'd welcome any ideas! I realize most of the good places are probably already booked but am hoping to find something.
