From soft, white sands to pebbly coves where it's just you, your family and the sea, a beach holiday is the dream ticket to relaxation and a healthy dose of fun in the sun.

Find the beach holiday that’s right for you – and save money while you’re at it – when you compare package deals with TravelSupermarket. Discover a range of cheap beach breaks from the UK’s top providers and jet off knowing you’ve found a bargain.

Whether you’re travelling with small children, hate long flights or you simply want a quick sunshine getaway, short-haul beach holidays tick all the boxes.

Jet off to the Balearics, Spain’s sunny coast or the golden shores of the Algarve and you can be flopped on the beach in less than three hours. Plus, with brilliant beach weather from spring to autumn and a huge array of cheap beach holidays available on TravelSupermarket, it’s no wonder these fly-and-flop destinations have dedicated fans.

Book sizzling sun holidays in Majorca, the beautiful Balearic where sun, sea and sand come as standard, and combine your break with shopping in Palma, all-out family fun in Alcudia, or wild summer beats in resorts such as Magaluf and Palma Nova.

On mainland Spain, you’ll find some of the nation's best beach holiday destinations: the Costa Brava, the Costa del Sol and the Costa Blanca. 

Quiet and cultured beach holidays are available on the Costa Brava, which captured the heart of surrealist painter Salvador Dali. There's nightlife if you want it in Lloret de Mar, while family frolics are covered by laidback Platja Gran in Tossa de Mar.

Then, the Costa del Sol. No prizes for guessing what this stunning stretch of coast is famed for. From the superyachts and super clubs of Marbella and Puerto Banus to family holidays in Torremolinos, beach holidays on the Costa del Sol are every bit a sun-seeker’s dream.

On the Costa Blanca, Benidorm is the major destination for sunny holidays, though Torrevieja and Alicante also boast huge sandy beaches and scenic mountain backdrops. With doorstep attractions that include Terra Mitica and Aqualandia, this is a prime family-fun zone and a great option for cheap beach holidays.

And if you can’t settle between a beach holiday or city break, you don’t have to in Spain. Take Catalan capital, Barcelona. Its seafront setting means you can wake up with a dip in the Med, spend days soaking up the culture in world-class museums and swap siestas for sunbathing on soft sands by the afternoon. San Sebastian, Valencia and Cadiz are also top picks for a city-meets-sea holiday.

Elsewhere, Portugal’s Algarve region is a serious contender for the best cheap beach holidays in Europe. All golden sands and sun-drenched resorts, with water parks, spa hotels and golf courses galore, the Algarve makes holiday dreams a blissful reality.
