Travel Deals: Last Minute Holidays with Abbey Travel
by Sheila Hendrick
Here at Abbey Travel
, we are no different to the rest of you. We love a good last minute holiday deal. In fact, our favourite last minute holiday destination was the topic of discussion over lunch earlier this week. This inspired me to write a post about our favourite destinations here at Abbey Travel. We did a bit of a ‘raise your hand’ ask-around, and this is what we came up with:
Salou is a big hit here in Abbey Travel – and it has been for quite a number of years. It has something for everyone, including Spain’s most visited theme park, Port Aventura (a big hit with the mammies and daddies in the office for family fun), as well as the popular Aquapolis Water Park.
Beaches are Salou’s main attraction - it is home to pristine beaches such as Ponent and Llevant which are both long sandy beaches and perfect for an early morning swim or a mid-morning walk. For the more energetic, Llevant has a dedicated area for water sports where you can go windsurfing, parasailing, or even boating.
For the non-sun gods who like a bit of shopping or culture a day trip to Barcelona is a must and with the excellent train service along the coast you can be there in an hour and a half.
Of all of the Canary Islands (there are 7 of them) Tenerife or tenner-e-fay as Beth from Corrie would say, is one of our favourites. South of the island, Playa de Las Americas is really popular with Irish people. It's busy, it's noisy and brimming with nightlife along Veronica's Strip aka Tenerife's Temple Bar (whatever you’re into!).
Up the coast Los Christianos is smaller and quieter, and is very popular amongst our "older staff" (the boss!). You can watch fab cruise ships docking as you eat in some of the fantastic seafood restaurants in the harbour. Costa Adeje is a fast-growing resort with some fabulous hotels and lovely beach area. Love sun, love sea, love sand, love shopping…Love Tenerife!
Majorca was a big hit, and probably raised the most hands in the Abbey Travel office as a favourite last minute holiday destination. Resorts such as Santa Ponsa, Alcudia and Cala d’Or were all named as favourites. No matter where in Majorca you go, you can be guaranteed to have a great time. Whether you are looking for somewhere to relax and unwind with friends or family, an adrenaline rush from a variety of water sports, or some shopping and culture, Majorca has it all.
