The cheapest all-inclusive destinations this summer are...

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 2023.

1. Costa Brava, Spain

Spain’s sunny Costa Brava is always a good bet for an all-inclusive break. Besides the affordable 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 Costa Brava than sun, sea and sand. You’ll also 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. Bulgaria

Bulgaria has long been known for its affordable prices and in 2023, you can expect more of the same – especially if you go all-inclusive. At the Black Sea resort of Sunny Beach (which frequently features in the Post Office’s Holiday Money Report as a great-value destination), you can expect a long and lovely sandy beach, watersports including banana boats and parasailing, and plenty of places to party the night away. To the north, Golden Sands is another popular pick as is Sozopol in the south.

And while 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 an easy day trip from Sunny Beach. 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 (4 miles) from Pilons to Cape Salou, taking in secluded beaches and craggy coves along the way.

4. Agadir, Morocco

With a big sweeping beach and relaxed attitude, Agadir is Morocco's premier package holiday destination – it's been around since the 60s and still ticks all the package boxes. Plus, it has the benefit of being cheap. Like Bulgaria, Morocco is outside the eurozone and the cost of living is very cheap, meaning souvenirs should be a snip.

With 300 days of sunshine a year, all-inclusive holidays here are all about making the most of Morocco’s sublime summer heat. The mercury climbs to the high 20s between June and August, though the Atlantic sea breeze keeps temperatures on the enjoyable side.

If you’ve had your fill of cocktails by the pool and fancy a day out, head to the Souss-Massa National Park for wildlife adventures, or explore the tropical scenery of Paradise Valley in the Atlas Mountains.

5. Gran Canaria, Spain

Gran Canaria needs no introduction as an all-inclusive holiday destination: travellers have been flocking to its shores for decades. It’s hardly a surprise as there’s so much variety here – capital Las Palmas is the biggest city in the Canaries; the island’s beaches range from the lounger-and-watersports variety to empty, untouched swathes; and a lush interior hides dramatic landscapes ideal for exploring.

The island’s hotels are worth writing home about, too. You’ll find a great selection in the south coast resorts of Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas, though quieter areas such as Puerto Mogan and the swish town of Meloneras also have good options. Some of Gran Canaria’s best beaches are also in the south, if you’re looking to swap a day by your hotel’s pool for one by sand and sea.

6. Balearic Islands, Spain

Great-value all-inclusive deals and good weather come standard in the Balearics – 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.

Not sure where to stay? 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. Alternatively, Cala d’Or and Cala Millor are great for low-key holidays.

Elsewhere, Ibiza is the iconic go-to for late-night beach parties and lively all-inclusive resorts close to all the tourist action. Or opt for Menorca for laidback getaways filled with tranquil beaches, rustic tavernas and coastal hikes.

7. Costa Blanca, Spain

Spain’s sparkling White Coast is 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.

For great all-inclusive deals in Costa Blanca, it has to be Benidorm in 2023. 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.

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. Bodrum, Turkey

Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is hard to resist come summer if you’re looking for holiday heat, with temperatures soaring to 30C and beyond. As for where to go, the Bodrum district is offering some irresistible deals.

A true jewel of the Aegean, expect glistening twin bays, a marvellous castle and stylish nightlife here, as well as multiple brilliant beaches – Gumbet, Akyarlar and Bitez, to name a few – and impressive historical clout (it's home to the remains of Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the ancient wonders of the world).

Nearby Antalya also has some great value all-inclusive holiday deals. It’s here you’ll find pretty Kleopatra Beach (named after the Egyptian queen who is said to have swam here) and plenty of history at places such as the imposing 13th-century Alanya Castle.

9. Tunisia

Tunisia is making its way back onto travellers’ radars for an affordable all-inclusive getaway, and it’s a great option if you’re keen to try something a little different in 2023.

Purpose-built resort Port el Kantaoui ticks all the fuss-free holiday boxes, and for those after a side of history with their beach break, Hammamet is closer to the capital (Tunis) and ruins of the ancient city of Carthage.

Spend your days soaking up the blissful Mediterranean sunshine from the white-sand beaches of Sangho or take to the waves for watersports over at Hammamet Beach. If you’re up for an adventure, head off into the desert on a guided camel ride.

While package holidays to Tunisia are generally cheap, avoid August if you can – this is the hottest month of the year and coincides with school break so prices across the board tend to be higher.

10. Costa del Sol

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 Malaga’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.
