Holidaymakers are continuing to flood to Europe for their summer breaks, with Spain the most popular destination, new research shows.
Despite currency fluctuations and uncertainty around Brexit, figures from On The Beach reveal that Spanish destinations, including the Canary Islands, the Balearics and the Costa del Sol, are just as popular as ever.
Other popular locations among Brits include Greece and Turkey, with both locations seeing a significant uptake in visitor numbers this summer.
Portugal, Cyprus and Malta also continue to be popular, with the holiday website suggesting that those who can be flexible with destinations and dates can often grab a bargain.
Dubai is another destination that is currently very popular with Brits, alongside Barbados and Tunisia – all locations renowned for getting a sizeable dose of sun.
The Costa del Sol, including the resort of Marbella, to the south of Malaga, caters for all tastes and nationalities and is especially popular with Brits.
Alongside golden beaches and reliable weather, the region is geared towards tourism and has many of the attractions and amenities that holidaymakers look for.
The Canary Islands, including Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria, are renowned for their black and white sandy beaches – a direct product of the volcanic archipelago’s geography.
As well as the National Parks on Tenerife and Lanzarote, both islands also provide a wealth of hiking and water sports opportunities.
The Balearic Islands, including Ibiza and Majorca, also remain popular, as several million Brits return to their turquoise waters and glorious sandy beaches year after year.
