Types of holidays in May

Best places for holidays in May

Antalya Area

It’s easy to unwind around Antalya. Stretching along Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, it dazzles with its unspoilt beaches and swanky hotels. It’s little wonder it’s become a magnet for those seeking relaxation in May. Keep things simple with a holiday spent hopping from one serene shore to the other.


For a bona fide Greek experience, set your sights on gorgeous Crete. Idyllic seaside towns fringe the island, where frozen-in-time sights wait to be explored. Meander around ancient ruins, then head to the stunning shore – solitude can easily be found on the beaches here during May. To top it all off, Crete’s cuisine is outstanding!

Larnaca Area

Awash with sparkling shores, Larnaca’s a guaranteed sunshine escape. There’s a range of Blue Flag beaches to unwind upon and the Med is warm enough for relaxing swims. Protaras is the place to go for a relaxing retreat, while Ayia Napa’s parties kick off in May. For a cosmopolitan spin on things, make for Limassol.


May’s a lovely time for exploring this Balearic Island, with spring blossoms giving the landscape lots of colour. So, hire a car and bring your sense of adventure! Roads zigzag between rolling hills, quaint towns and pretty coastline. Most resorts have a low-key vibe in May but there are plenty of lively spots in Palma and Alcudia.


May heralds a new chapter for this Greek island. Resorts aren’t yet flush with holidaymakers and the sun is well and truly shining. Devote your time to unravelling the layers of ancient history in whitewashed Lindos and cobbled Rhodes Town, as well as experiencing the Blue Flag beaches ringing Rhodes.


May’s mild weather marks the perfect time to get outdoors – and where better than Tenerife? The island’s beaches are well worth exploring, with everything from gold-sand sweeps to inky volcanic shores. That’s your days sorted and when it comes to nights, buzzy karaoke bars, Irish pubs and waterfront restaurants guarantee good times.

Our May holidays

Searching for sun come May time? There’s nothing quite like booking a break to warmer climes when a chill still lingers in the air back in Blighty. So bag one of our May holiday deals and blow the cobwebs of winter away. From Self Catering to All Inclusive holidays, in May there are oodles of getaways to choose from.

At this time of the year, sun-kissed destinations are slowly awakening from the spring slumber, leaving resorts fresh and generally quiet. Though the school half-term means crowds do swell for a week or so. Temperatures begin to climb too during May, with holiday destinations reaching the balmy mid-twenties during the day. Hallelujah!

Not sure where is hot in May and where would be best to go to? Take a look at our favourite May holiday destinations to help you decide where to jet off to for your next break.
