Where’s Hot for Holidays This May

Now the kids are back at school, the cost of a holiday has fallen dramatically.

So if you’re able to holiday outside of school holidays and you’re thinking of jetting off this May then check out our short haul suggestions, all of which are available from Gatwick Airport.

Sardinia
The second largest in the Mediterranean, Sardinia will delight beach lovers with its gorgeous sandy beaches and stunning turquoise waters. Offering a fabulous mix of sun, sea and culture, the island is also a mecca for wildlife and hiking, so if you want a break from the beach you can take yourself off on some fabulous tours.

In May, Sardinia will see temperatures averaging 22ºC and 9 hours of sunshine a day.

Morocco
Barter in a busy Souk or relax in a high quality hotel, either way, holidays in Morocco are increasing in popularity.

In May you’ll enjoy temperatures of 27ºC, without the humidity of the summer months.

Turkey
Turkey is a firm favourite with UK holidaymakers, mostly because of its high temperatures. In May the weather is slightly cooler which makes it more bearable for those not wanting the peak heat of summer but wanting access to the high class hotels and accommodation that Turkey is gaining a reputation for.

As well as lovely beaches, culture vultures will enjoy Turkey’s ancient ruins and history, while shopaholics will love the modern retail outlets.

Temperatures average 25ºC in Turkey during May with 12 hours of sunshine.

Italian Rivera
Just a few hours from Gatwick and you could be enjoying the glamour and luxury of the Italian Rivera.

Revel in pizza, pasta and fine red wine, as well as beautiful coastlines of sandy beaches and rocky caves.

Average temperatures reach 25ºC in May and 8 hours of sunshine a day.

Canary Islands
And of course, we couldn’t miss out the Canary Islands. Offering all-year-round sunshine, the Canary Islands has fabulous temperatures, warm seas and something for everyone across the 5 main islands.
