There’s no denying that Camden’s very own beach at the Roundhouse is a great spot to visit this summer. But sometimes, nothing beats a holiday abroad. So, as the beach holiday experts, we’ve compiled a list of top beach destinations… outside of Camden Town.

5. Fuerteventura

Beaches are big in Fuerteventura. Literally. The stretches of sand run around the perimeter of the island and are wide enough to welcome plenty of sun-worshipping visitors, surfers, paddlers and everyone in-between. Our Fuerteventura beach highlights include:

  • Corralejo beach
  • Cofete beach
  • La Concha beach

4. Ibiza

Ibiza’s clubbing scene reputation precedes it. But we’re not going to let the clubs steal all of the limelight as Ibiza’s beach game is also on top form… There are plenty of picturesque, quiet little beaches alongside those that pick up the tempo for some beach party fun. Our Ibiza beach highlights include:

  • Aguas Blancas beach
  • Cala Conta beach
  • Cala d’Hort beach

3. Marbella

Marbella brings ‘glam’ to the party, and with several Blue Flag beaches to its name, the beaches themselves are also super sparkly. A favourite with celebrities, you’ll be sunning yourself next to the very best of them. Our Marbella beach highlights include:

  • Bounty beach
  • Alicate beach
  • Playa Rio Verde beach

2. Crete

Crete is no stranger to beach-seeking tourists, having attracted holidaymakers aplenty over the years. Being a Greek island, Crete’s beach-to-land ratio is pretty high, meaning a beach is never more than an hour and a half away (at the very most) by car. Our Crete beach highlights include:

  • Matala beach
  • Balos beach
  • Vái beach

1. Algarve

The mother of all beach destinations, the Algarve is known for its collection of glorious beaches, over 80 of which officially hold Blue Flag status. The internet is adrift with mentions of ‘golden stretches’ of beach that run along the Algarve’s gorgeous coastline; it’s no wonder it made it to the top of our list. Our Algarve beach highlights include:

  • Praia da Rocha beach
  • Praia da Balaia beach
  • Carvalho beach
