With much of the northern part of Europe cooling down significantly from the end of August onwards, there are still plenty of scorching European destinations you can visit if you want to top up your fading tan. Whether you are looking for amazing beaches and relaxation, culture and cuisine or action packed excitement, these destinations have it all…

Kos, Greece

Kos is ideal for getting a late summer sun with temperatures over 30 degrees and there is plenty nearby to explore if you want to leave your sunbed! Adventurers will love the nearby volcanic island of Nisyros where you can visit several volcanic craters and a hot salty pool. There are also many luxury sailing trips where you can or see dolphins, snorkel and explore a choice of nearby islands. If you prefer to do your own thing you can hop on a ferry to many other Greek islands including Rhodes and Leros. You can also take a ferry to Bodrum on the Turkish mainland which is definitely worth a visit.

Hire a car to explore the island, or if you want something more quirky you can hire a quad bike or luxury AV-Buggy that resembles a formula one racing car, this will enable you to discover loads of cute villages and towns, many of which have a wealth of hidden gems. Zia is one of these towns; nested in the mountains this village gets magnificent sunsets and there is a quaint market open till the late evening so it’s ideal for to visit late afternoon and to stay for dinner in one of the panorama restaurants. Wherever you go in Kos, the food is amazing and the people are very friendly.
