In this guide, we’ve listed our favourite sunny holiday destinations in Europe that are a little less crowded, so you can enjoy a European summer without the crowds.
Just an hour south of the Amalfi Coast, Cilento is an area covered with olive trees, featuring 100km of coastline dotted with sandy beaches and cosy bays, all framed by spectacular mountains.

This wine-soaked region is lined with craggy cliffs, hidden inlets, and spectacular clifftop paths, and best of all, it is still very Spanish.
It’s a small island off the coast of Split, and is known for its windsurfing and resort town of Bol, where you’ll find one of my favourite beaches on Brac Island, Zlatni Rat.
It’s known for its stunning, clear waters that are a dazzling turquoise colour, as well as long stretches of beach with sand dunes and pine trees.
