The best beach holiday destinations in June

Officially considered to be the start of summer, June is a great time to plan a beach holiday. While temperatures have definitely started to heat up in Europe and other destinations in the northern hemisphere, you'd still manage to avoid the crowds that descend on popular beach destinations in the peak months of July and August.

And, as an extra bonus, holiday prices won't be at their peak in June either, which means you can make big savings, especially if you're planning a fun-filled family holiday or a group holiday. So, take advantage of an early summer deal and head off on a beach getaway this June. Here are some of our favourite June beach destinations.

The best city break destinations in June

If you don't want to fly too far or if you only have a long weekend to work with, a city break may just be your ideal holiday match. In June, many destinations are starting to look their best, with warmer weather and longer hours of daylight. This is certainly the case for Europe, but you can also find great city break destinations a little further away.

Here are some of our top destinations for a June city break.

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

Known for its candy-coloured houses and the bright lights of Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen is a great destination for a June city break. The Danish capital manages to effortlessly pull off its unique blend of history, hipster vibes and seaside charm.

While it may be tempting to do a few day trips from Copenhagen, make sure that you set aside enough time to explore the city itself, which is packed with so many things to do. Plus, the sun will most likely be shining - the perfect conditions for exploring!

Travel tips for Copenhagen

Don't miss out on the most popular attractions while in Copenhagen. They're popular for a reason, after all, so make time to see the Little Mermaid, Nyhavn, Tivoli Gardens and Rosenborg Castle.

But don't forget to explore this city's food scene; TorvehallerneKBH is a great place to do this, as each food stall has its own speciality. For something completely different, check out Christiania, a freetown operating in Copenhagen; just remember to read the rules at the entrance.

Copenhagen weather conditions in June

🌡️ Average temperature: 11 - 20° C

☀️ Hours of daylight: 11 hours

🌧️ Rainy days: 16 days

2. Warsaw, Poland

Poland's capital city is known as a place that's full of history, but it also happens to be one of the more affordable city breaks you can take in early summer. And, for those in the know, Warsaw is full of trendy bars, art galleries and restaurants just waiting to be discovered.

Plus, the city is filled with all sorts of attractions. And, thanks to its central location in the country, Warsaw is a great base for exploring other Polish towns and cities, such as Lodz and Lublin.

Travel tips for Warsaw

Head to the city's Old Town, which was faithfully rebuilt and restored to its former glory; the Old Town Market Square, Presidential Palace and Historical Museum of Warsaw are the top things to do here.

Lazienki Park is a stunning spot, with shaded paths and grand structures dotted amongst the trees. For those visiting Warsaw for its famous nightlife scene, you can find plenty of bars and clubs in the Pawilony area, as well as a street called Mazowieczka near the centre.

3. Athens, Greece

If you like your city breaks hot, then Athens will be your perfect fit this June. The weather is definitely getting warmer at this time of year, but it'll still be much more comfortable than the height of summer.

This means that you'll be able to fully explore the city's renowned sights, from the Acropolis to its many museums and art galleries. While many travellers head to the beaches of Greece in summer, it's also one of the best times to experience the capital.

Travel tips for Athens

Head up the Acropolis in the morning, before the heat of the day really sets in; you can marvel at the iconic Parthenon and other ancient structures at the top. Consider buying a combination ticket if you're planning to visit any other ancient sites, such as the Temple of Olympian Zeus or the Ancient Agora.

For good food and shopping, head to the Monastiraki area where you'll find a market as well as restaurants and street food stalls. The Plaka district is another top area to explore.

4. Seville, Spain

Located in southern Spain, Seville may not be as well known as Barcelona or Madrid, but it happens to be an excellent choice for a city break. Great food, fun nightlife and a whole host of things to see, Seville is one of our favourite places to visit in June.

With its orange tree-lined streets, Seville will be pleasantly warm in June, giving you plenty of time to truly experience the city. It's also an ideal gateway for exploring the wider Andalusia region.

Travel tips for Seville

June is a fantastic time to see Seville's many outdoor attractions, such as the impressive Plaza de España with its bridges, columns and water features as well as the beautiful details of the Royal Alcázar of Seville. For something a bit quirkier, don't miss Setas de Sevilla, a unique mushroom-shaped wooden structure that towers over La Encarnación Square.

Set aside some time to admire Seville Cathedral, one of the largest in the world, and enjoy the views from La Giralda.

5. Lisbon, Portugal

When it comes to a summer holiday in Portugal, many choose to head straight to the gorgeous Algarve coastline. We certainly can't blame them, but June is an ideal month to explore Lisbon, the country's capital city.

The weather's warm but not stifling, which will allow you to spend plenty of time outdoors exploring the city's many sights.

Travel tips for Lisbon

Castelo de Sao Jorge, the Santa Justa lift and the Carmo Convent are some of the central city's top sights. Another sightseeing hotspot is the Belem district, where you'll find Jerónimos Monastery and the ultimate place to try Lisbon's legendary pasteis de nata (egg custard pastries) - Pastéis de Belém - where they're served fresh and still warm from the oven!

To get a real feel of the city, head to the Alfama district, where you'll find atmospheric bars and narrow, winding streets.

🌡️ Average temperature: 17 - 26° C

6. Strasbourg, France

Probably the prettiest city break destination on our list, much of Strasbourg looks like it belongs on a postcard. Located in eastern France, right on the border with Germany, Strasbourg offers a unique fusion of cultural influences, which can be seen in its history and even in its cuisine.

Set aside a long weekend to fully explore this spectacular city and its sights.

Travel tips for Strasbourg

First things first: grab that camera and head straight to La Petite France. Filled with waterways, top-heavy half-timbered houses and colourful floral decorations, this area is undoubtedly Strasbourg's main drawcard. You can also find plenty of bars and restaurants nearby.

Strasbourg Cathedral, Musée Alsacien and Parc de l’Orangerie are all worthy stops on a Strasbourg city break itinerary. Just make sure you leave enough time to try tarte flambée, a delicacy from the Alsace region.
