Where’s hot in June?
It’s time to celebrate summer with the perfect villa holiday in the sun. Jet off with your loved one and enjoy glorious weather, blue skies and sizzling temperatures in the beautiful destinations of Kefalonia and Majorca. If you’re wondering where’s hot in June, look no further – these magical islands have some of the best beaches, attractions, food and culture on offer.
As one of Greece’s largest islands, Kefalonia offers plenty to see and do, including idyllic villages, some of the world’s best beaches and lush green countryside to explore. Together with the delicious fare on offer, you and your loved one will be spoiled for choice during your holiday.
Kefalonia’s beaches are award-winning, and keep visitors coming back time and again. When you feel like a dip in waters that are a little more expansive than your private pool in the grounds of your tranquil Villa Morea, Kefalonia’s 39 beaches offer snorkelling, jet skiing, surfing and boating opportunities aplenty. You may even get the chance to see loggerhead turtles laying their eggs if you spend an evening on Kaminia beach. Other natural wonders to explore include Melissani Lake cave, which was discovered back in the 1950s. Visitors can take a boat ride through the stunning blue waters to get the best views of its impressive cavernous ceiling. If you have access to a car, the Drogarati Caves, with their numerous stalactites, stalagmites and great acoustics, are also worth investigating. A drive to Mount Ainos National Park makes a great day out to connect with Kefalonia’s beautiful nature. Hike around the trails that offer majestic views of the coastline, and you may even encounter a wild pony on your travels.
When you’re hungry, Kefalonia won’t disappoint, with a number of delicious dishes that are reflective of traditional Ionian cuisine. Indulge in fresh seafood that was likely caught the same day, as well as Kreatopita – a traditional Greek meat pie with flaky pastry, or Chicken Tserepa, which is said to have origins in Ithaca. In typical Kefalonian style, pair your meal with a refreshing glass of Corfiot ginger beer (Tsitsibirra), Ouzo or red wine sourced from the island’s vineyards.
Whether you like to kick back and relax on the beach, hike across beautiful mountainous walking trails or soak up a little culture and history, Majorca has plenty on offer if you’re thinking of places to go on holiday and wondering where’s hot in June.
This stunning Balearic island is renowned for its long sandy stretches of beach. Playa de Muro on the north coast is great for diving thanks to its long jetty, while Es Trenc on the south is perfect for those looking for calm waters and a range of watersports to keep everyone occupied.
If you can tear yourself away from your spacious countryside Villa Rafaleta, nestled in beautiful grounds and boasting an inviting private pool, Majorca’s capital of Palma is worth a visit. The city has plenty of cycling and walking routes that allow you to explore its Medieval history. Discover Llotja de Palma – a 15th century exhibition hall showcasing public art, before touring the Basilica de Sant Francesc and the Cathedral Le Sou. Continue walking to the Mercat de l’Olivar Market Hall in Palma’s centre, which features a lively market selling souvenirs, homewares, fresh produce and local delicatessen. As evening draws in, stay for dinner at one of the trendy restaurants on the city’s marina and tuck in to local specialities such as Frit Mallorqui and the heart Majorcan soup that is Sopas Mallorquinas.
