Top 5 Summer Destinations in Belgium and Abroad
By now, you’ve most likely already replaced your warm cardigans and jackets by lighter shorts and t-shirts. But have you started surfing the Internet for the best deals and ideas for the coming summer holidays? Now that the summer really is just around the corner, goldenpages.be has been thinking about the most fascinating holiday destinations for you to make the most of the summer!
|You don’t need to go so far away to relax in one of the greenest and most authentic regions in the whole of Europe. The Belgian Ardennes are a haven of peace where nature holds control and life has a distinctly rural tone. Hikers, backpackers, campers and nature lovers will therefore find the Ardennes particularly attractive and satisfying.
And to make your holidays in this unspoilt region especially enjoyable, why not stay in a traditional farm or in a guest house? Not only will you get in touch with the local culture, but you’ll also discover the true spirit of the Ardennes. Don’t forget to take your walking shoes and refresh your French!
|The Belgian coastline stretches along 65 km of sandy beaches where visitors can go sailing or fishing, play ball games, sunbathe, or plunge into the fresh waters of the North Sea. The Belgian beaches being the best remedy against the hot days of the summer, thousands of (inter)national visitors head to the coast every year. That’s why the Belgian coast is one of the most visited areas in Belgium.
With around 15 resorts and hundreds of hotels, the coast offers many accommodation options for all tastes and budgets. However, do book in good time! In the months of July and August, rooms run short because of the summer heat and the magnetism of the Belgian beaches.
Destination the World
|With over 60 million tourists from across the globe each year, Spain is the second most visited country in the world. And there is a good reason why: Spain is one of the few countries where such a variety of destinations can be found. Thanks to its sharp cultural, linguistic and geographic contrasts, Spain has a place for almost everyone.
For those in search of sun and beaches, Andalusia and the Balearic Islands are two ideal destinations. Those who’d rather admire the purest nature and the best cuisine will fall in love with Galicia. And those who love the urban cosmopolitism of modern cities should definitely put Madrid at the top of their list.
||France has long been a favourite destination among Belgians. Like its Spanish neighbours, France has it all: sandy beaches, beautiful landscapes, cosmopolite cities and an impressive richness in cultures and languages. This is also why so many foreign tourists visit France every year with such different plans in mind.
In case you’ve visited France before, why not try something new this time? France is a particularly good destination for gourmets, its fine cuisine being renowned across the entire planet. A gastronomic trip could be therefore a fantastic idea for those who’d like to discover what makes French cuisine so unique.
||Israel is one of the most fascinating countries in the Middle East… and in the whole world. With its peerless mixture of art, culture, history and modernity, Israel captivates both lovers of our past and our present. Furthermore, its extreme landscapes and its sunny weather offer visitors a true Mediterranean experience.
Its two biggest cities perfectly depict the many publics Israel attracts. Eminently religious, Jerusalem is a favourite among those wishing to wonder at the beauty of the Holy Land. On the other hand, Tel Aviv, like most of Israel, welcomes mainly young tourists who’d rather enjoy life in one of the most open and dynamic cities of the planet.
