No matter how great your home and work life is, sometimes there’s simply nothing better than rounding up a group of friends, jumping on a plane and spending a week or two on a girly holiday in the sun. If you’re planning a gals getaway this year, here are some of the best destinations on offer for a bit of fun in the sun.
If it’s great weather, delicious food and stunning scenery that you’re after during your holiday, then Italy is a pretty good place to start. For the best of the weather, head to Italy’s Calabria region. Located in the ‘toe’ of the famous boot-shaped country, this area has some truly spectacular beaches as well as idyllic towns and villages scattered throughout the countryside.

For a little touch of exoticism on your girly break, head to the fantastic Mediterranean coast of Western Turkey. Bathed in glorious sunshine for most of the year, Turkey has a rugged charm and sumptuous luxury all of its own. Offering the perfect location for relaxing and recuperating, you can spend endless days soaking up the rays on the beach. Alternatively, if some of your group are a little more adventurous, then Turkey offers a fantastic selection of outdoor activities from windsurfing to horse riding.

Greece has long been a popular destination for girls’ holidays and with the release of musical ‘Mama Mia’, set on an idyllic Greek island, the image of Greece has became all the more synonymous with a girls’ week away. Get dressed up in your favourite flares and recreate the dance for Abba’s ‘Waterloo’, or spend your days exploring the islands to find secluded bays and lively tavernas –whatever you choose to do, Greece will not leave you disappointed.


If you want to inject a bit of glamour into your girls’ week away, why not head to the south of France? Home of the rich and famous, you can spend your evenings eating in some of the world’s best restaurants as you watch the people parade past the window in the world’s romantic city.

Stay in the Club Med resort of Opio en Provence and you’ll be just a stones throw from Nice, Cannes and the stunning beauty of the French Riviera.

There’s something truly special about gathering up your best group of girls and jetting off to a fantastic destination, so if you haven’t booked your week in the sun yet, it’s time to crack open the atlas, choose your flights and make some memories.
