Destination for weekend of nightlife/ beach October time

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm 27 and a couple of years ago, me and 2 friends decided one Monday morning that we fancied having a couple of nights out somewhere different. On the Thursday evening we had a night out in our home town where only 2 of us drank and then about 2am on the Friday, left and drove to Luton airport for a flight to Krakow Poland, where we had the Friday night out, the Saturday night out, and then caught a plane back midday sunday ready for work Monday.

We have been thinking of doing this again in terms of days we travel etc but fancy somewhere warmer, so we can lay on the beach or have a look round the town in more comfort with a hangover than the -10c we had in Poland in November. I have been to Sunny Beach in Bulgaria
which would be our ideal destination except for the transfer time from the airport to the hotel, so basically we are hoping somebody could come up with a destination that ticks the following boxes:

1) Flight time from UK of less than 4 hours

2) English spoken to a point

3) Airport within 15 miles ish, of the hotel, as we're on a budget taxi wise

4) Ideally a beach resort that sees its prices drop in September, but still has bars open.

5) Something to do during the day, even if like Sunny Beach Bulgaria, it is just a large market of fake clothes and perfume and a beach


We have looked at Spain and Greece
 etc, both which would suit us but we're yet to find a place or specific island that has the airport near enough. I have been to Zante quite a few years ago and again, that sort of place would be spot on if we could just get from the airport to the hotel cheap and quick.

Thanks a lot in advance, James
