An ideal summer break is something that includes discovering incredible destinations, endless partying, and lots of sunshine. Still, it often boils down to spending good times with the good company of friends. In fact, time is moving too fast when you’re having fun!

To help you plan your get-togethers this summer, we came up with recommendations for the best way to spend summer break with friends this year.

1. Glamping in Wales

When it comes to the best glamping, Wales is certainly hard to beat. From picturesque villages and quaint harbour towns to verdant forests and pearly beaches that stretch for miles, there’s a little bit of everything for you and your friends while glamping in Wales.

During your boutique glamping adventure, you and your friends will be spending the evening observing the constellations when you book the Night Sky Glamping in Abersoch. You can also choose to relax in a 20m-long aeroplane at the Apple Camping site in Pembrokeshire. Staying at a lodge on a lake in Glamorgan is also a great way to spend your summer break in Wales.

2. Island Hopping in Greece

Salt in the air, sand on your feet, warm sunshine over your shoulders, that’s Greek island hopping for you! In the Cyclades, you’ll find Mykonos with its iconic windmills, flower-lined streets, and trendy cafes. Down south is Santorini with its romantic sunsets, world-class wineries, and whitewashed houses.

Take your friends to go cruising along the Dodecanese, where traces of ancient Rome and medieval crusades are evident in its walled cities, crumbling castles, and spectacular spires. If you want to experience a slightly cooler climate in Greece while exploring delightful harbour villages, take a cruise around the Ionians.

3. Explore the Culture in Venice

Venice exudes a romantic allure tangible in its maze of canals and waterways, numerous bridges, impressive architecture, and extravagant past. One of the most prominent symbols of Venetian culture is the gondola ride. So invite your friends to hop on a gondola and discover the charming city from its canals.

Watching the sunset from Rialto Bridge is also a cool way to bond with friends in Venice. After a whole day of sightseeing, sip a cup of cappuccino at a café in Piazza San Marco. Take time to visit the city’s top museums including the famed Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Square. To experience authentic Venetian life, you and your friends can rent a modern apartment in Venice, a little farther from the city centre, where many locals reside. For easy access around the city, choose an apartment that’s located close to the waterbus terminal.

4. Non-stop Party in Ayia Napa

Located at the far eastern end of the southern coast of Cyprus, Ayia Napa is emerging as a top destination in the Mediterranean. Each year, the town attracts hundreds of tourists for its pulsating nightlife. The resort is busiest from June until August, with the performance of world-famous DJs, nightly concerts and shows that peak at midnight and last until the wee hours of the morning.

Ayia Napa offers everything that will make your summer break with friends a truly wonderful experience – beach, sunlight, foam parties, and even bar crawls! The area where the music is the loudest is along the main strip of Agias Mavris. Here, the bars feature different tunes that range from the latest club bangers to downright cheesy love songs. Ayia Napa is indeed a nightlife paradise for the young and the restless.
