Located on the south-western side of the island, Elafonissi beach has all you need from a beach – soft sand and warm waters, so slip off your shoes off and enjoy!
Explore sea caves in the Algarve
The Algarve is a favourite holiday destination in the celebrity world and the fourth series of ‘Ex on the Beach’ produced a few celebrities of its own. A holiday to the Algarve brings the promise of glorious beaches with tempting beach bars and stunning views of the cliffs that surround the area.
If you’re going on an Algarve holiday, you should go on a boat tour of the Benagil caves during your stay. The caves are among the most impressive sea caves in Europe and some boat tours even offer a transfer to a private beach for a few hours!
Enjoy a sunshine-filled visit to the Costa del Sol
Series 1 and 2 of ‘Ex on the Beach’ were filmed on the Spanish Costa del Sol, in Spain’s sunny Marbella, which isn’t far from popular towns such Fuengirola and Benalmadena. While you’re staying on the Costa del Sol, travel a little further along the coast to the city of Malaga and you’ll find another Spanish gem. Test out your flamenco skills, sample the finest sangria and share some tapas with loved ones. You’re in for a holiday full of fiesta fun, so make sure you’ve packed your dancing shoes.
