Where to go on holiday in August


Give this Portuguese island a whirl this August! Madeira's an all-year-rounder, so expect sunshine by the bucket load. Enjoy it on one of the black-sand beaches, while hiking through lush mountains or wandering the charming capital Funchal. Love wine? You're in luck, as there are lots of wineries to sample island-grown bottles here!

The Algarve

Portugal’s sizzling southern coast is calling! The Algarve’s sandy shores are always a hit for sun-seekers, especially around Albufeira, and golfers will be in heaven in Vilamoura, with a range of superb courses to tee off in the sunshine. And if you’re holidaying with the little ones in tow, there are waterparks galore!


Ooh la la, Malta's primed for August adventures. As well as being a historic treasure chest – which already had us sold – the island's showstopping coastline is the definition of naturally beautiful, with its sparkling sapphire waters and gold-sand beaches. Did someone say ‘average highs of 28°C’? Be right back, just off to pack!


Sapphire waters sparkling in the sunshine, whitewashed villages draped in blooming bougainvillea, Venetian-style buildings in pastel shades lining the capital’s old town… no this isn’t a dream, this is Corfu! If you’re after an August holiday that deals in top sunbathing spots where you can unwind in peace, then this is the place to go.


The seaside resorts fringing Majorca bubble with life, while the countryside’s dotted with peaceful whitewashed villages – that means you can get the best of both worlds. August’s when temperatures soar, so you can easily fall into the go-slow rhythm of life. Swim in the aquamarine waters of Cala Mondragó and ride through rugged mountains to experience gorgeous Sóller.


Nestled in the Atlantic, this island takes on multiple guises – surfing haven, natural paradise, beach nirvana to name just a few! And August is the perfect month to experience it, with temperatures reaching 25°C. Not sure where to go? Corralejo’s ideal for a relaxing seaside break, while Costa Calma’s the place to go for water sports.

Our August holidays

Sink into the spirit of summer when it peaks during August. Holiday deals are in abundance, with workers fleeing offices in favour of warmer climes. Can you blame them? The height of summer means those temperatures are as hot as they come, perfect if you want to work on your tan, feel the heat of the sun on your skin and enjoy long lazy lunches al fresco.

Most of Europe’s seaside resorts are jam-packed with holidaymakers during August, creating a buzzy atmosphere, but there are plenty of hidden gems to seek out if you’re after peace and quiet. Sleepy spots can be found on islands among the Med, while there are rural boltholes galore throughout the French and Italian countryside.
