Picture yourself by the pool. It’s 28C and you’re sipping your second ice-cold beer – or was it your third? No worries, it’s all paid for anyway. As you wonder what's for dinner (a meal you won't have to prepare yourself, by the way), you congratulate yourself quietly: what a good decision it was to go all-inclusive this year.

If you like the sound of that, you’re not alone. All-inclusive is more popular than ever, and it’s surprisingly affordable to boot – if you know where to go. So, we’ve crunched the numbers at TravelSupermarket HQ to reveal the top ten cheapest all-inclusive destinations for summer 2022.

1. Costa Brava, Spain

Spain’s sunny Costa Brava is always a good bet for an all-inclusive break. Besides the cheap prices, its wealth of long, Blue Flag beaches and the reliable weather make it a firm favourite for Brits – from May through to September you’re pretty much guaranteed a warm Mediterranean climate and plenty of sunshine.

But there’s more to the Costa Brava than sun, sea and sand; you’ll find exciting cities – medieval Girona is crammed with museums, churches, restaurants and bars; mouth-watering Catalan seafood; and some of the wildest coastline in Spain.

Popular places to stay along the Costa Brava include Lloret de Mar, Tossa de Mar, Cadaques and Blanes.

2. Sunny Beach, Bulgaria

Bulgaria’s Sunny Beach has long been known for its affordable prices (it frequently tops the Post Office’s Holiday Money Report for best value destination). In 2022, you can expect more of the same – especially if you go all-inclusive. The Black Sea resort is your quintessential ‘fun in the sun’ destination, with a long and lovely 8km (5 miles) sandy beach, watersports including banana boats and parasailing, and plenty of places to party the night away.

Though you might be tempted to stay resort-side on an all-inclusive holiday, it’s worth leaving your sun-lounger for a day trip or two. Historic Nessebar, protected by UNESCO for its trove of ancient Greek and Byzantine architecture, is around 5km (3 miles) away. Or organise a 4x4 tour to explore Bulgaria’s beautiful mountains that back the bay.

3. Costa Dorada, Spain

The Costa Dorada is classic Spain. Barcelona is here for a start, and you’ll also find miles of golden beaches, tons of tapas joints, and some of the country’s best wineries (cava is the specialty).

You’ll have a good range of options for great-value all-inclusive breaks, too. Chilled Cambrils, lively Sitges and lovely Calafell are all great choices, as are Salou and La Pineda. Base yourself at either if you’re travelling with the family: PortAventura World, the home of Ferrari Land as well as a theme and water park, is less than ten minutes’ drive from both resorts.

If you fancy exploring beyond the sand in these parts, a coastal path spans for 6.5km from Pilons to Cape Salou, taking in secluded beaches and craggy coves along the way.

4. Sicily, Italy

Sicily is the Med’s largest isle, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. Sparkling blue bays are the idyllic setting for tucking into fresh seafood pasta, hilltop towns hide crumbling churches and fascinating history reaches back thousands of years.

You’ll find a handful of all-inclusive deals in places such as Catania and Letojanni on the island’s east coast. Catania has all the perks of a trip to the big smoke (think restaurants, bars and shopping) as well as the 18km-long La Playa beach, while tiny Letojanni is ideal for getting away from it all. Mount Etna bears down on them both; day trips to the top are worth it.

5. Tenerife, Spain

Tenerife is classic all-inclusive holiday territory. Holidaymakers tend to flock to the south coast resorts of Costa Adeje, Los Cristianos and Playa de las Americas for sun, sea and sand on their doorstep – whichever you choose, you really can’t go wrong here.

Leaving your sun-lounger? Head north for authentic Tenerife, stopping in quieter towns such as Las Caletillas, Masca and Buenavista Del Norte for a step back in time. In the island’s centre, the towering Mount Teide offers fantastic views. Make a day of it and hike to the top or enjoy the ride on the cable car.

6. Majorca, Spain

Great-value all-inclusive deals and good weather come standard in Majorca – and there’s plenty of choice if you’re just looking for a pool to flop next to for a week. As for picking up a bargain, if you’re able to travel outside of the school holidays, May and late September see the best deals. Travel during this shoulder season and you’ll also be able to avoid usual summer crowds.

Not sure where to stay? It can be a tough decision: Majorca has as much variety in its towns as it does its hotels. Magaluf favours the party crowd, while Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia are great for families. Cala d’Or and Cala Millor are great for low-key holidays or, to really get off the beaten track, try one of these quiet towns in Majorca.

7. Benidorm, Spain

For great all-inclusive deals on Spain’s Costa Blanca, it’s got to be Benidorm. With two long beaches and well-established resorts ranging from the wallet-friendly to the utterly opulent, you won’t want for choice in this package holiday mecca.

Not quite for you? Try elsewhere on the Costa Blanca – it’s a classic summer destination for more than one reason. Sun-drenched beaches lapped by the Med, laidback resorts perfect for families, legendary nightlife, shopping, restaurants and even a little luxury… holidays here have got the lot.

The region’s other popular resorts include Alicante and Calpe, although if you’re after a budget deal outside Benidorm, you may be better off choosing a self-catering stay.

8. Costa del Sol, Spain

Spain’s Costa del Sol has been enticing Brits for decades and has long been a stalwart of cheap all-inclusive package breaks. Coastal towns from family-friendly Torremolinos to Fuengirola tick all the holiday boxes, with hotels to cater to all tastes. At swanky Marbella and nearby Puerto Banus, you’ll find some of the region’s finest restaurants, while city vibes are Málaga’s bag. More than just a gateway to the Costa del Sol, choose Malaga for its museums (Paris’ Centre Pompidou has an outpost here, and there’s a dedicated Picasso museum), as well as the beautiful Alcazaba.

Prefer to get off the beaten track? It may not be your first pick for a crowd-free break but Spain’s ‘Sunshine Coast’ has a few hidden gems worth leaving your resort for. Hire a car and discover the Costa del Sol’s secret side in between your days by the pool.

9. Kefalonia, Greece

If you’re craving a bit of that famous Greek hospitality this summer, we’ve got some good news: all-inclusive holidays to Kefalonia are among the cheapest this summer.

The Ionian starlet has one of the most enviable coastlines in the region, with a long, luscious shore punctuated with beach after beach. Inland, olive trees blanket mountains and the resorts’ buzz give way to remote villages and a rural way of life.

You’ll find some of the best deals at the well-established resorts, such as Lassi and Fiskardo, throughout out the summer. But, Kefalonia’s wide range of accommodation means that you’ll find reasonable all-inclusive holidays on most parts of the island.

10. Marmaris, Turkey

It won’t take long to realise why this part of Turkey is dubbed the ‘Turquoise Coast’. All the clichés of the Mediterranean ring true around here: yes, the beaches stretch out for miles; yes, the water is that blue; and yes, it really does sparkle.

And if you want plenty of choice on your all-inclusive Turkish getaway, coastal Marmaris is a hard one to beat. The city has a big range of hotels and resorts, both along the waterfront and within its maze of streets, as well as a huge beach that reaches right around to neighbouring resort, Icmeler, about 10km away. For kids, there’s a handful of waterparks, though adults may prefer a ferry adventure over to the Greek island of Rhodes (bring your passport).
