From soft, white sands to pebbly coves where it’s just you, your family and the sea, a beach holiday is the dream ticket for relaxation and a healthy dose of fun in the sun. We search wider than any other holiday website, so you don’t need to go anywhere else to book amazing beach holidays.

Whether you are travelling with small children, hate long flights or you simply want a quick sunshine getaway, short-haul holidays on the beach are ideal.

With a flying time of less than three hours, brilliant beach weather from spring to autumn and a huge array of cheap sun holidays available on TravelSupermarket, the following destinations are perfect flip-flop territory.

Book sizzling sun holidays in Majorca, the beautiful and diverse Balearic isle that offers sun, sea and sand by the bucket load. Combine weekend beach breaks with shopping in Palma, go for all out family fun in Alcudia, or dance to the wild summer beats of resorts such as Magaluf and Palma Nova.

Portugal’s Algarve is the gorgeous setting for some of the best beach holidays in Europe. Water parks, spa hotels, golf courses, picture-perfect beaches… whatever draws you to cheap sunshine breaks, the Algarve makes holiday dreams a blissful reality.

Lounging in the generous sunshine along the sensational southern shoreline of Spain are some of the nation’s most popular 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, which has been stealing the hearts of holidaymakers since the invention of the package holiday. Family frolics on the sands of Platja Gran bring visitors to Tossa de Mar.

The Costa del Sol: the Coast of the Sun. Need we say more? Probably not, because we’ve all been flocking here for decades. From the super yachts and super clubs of Marbella and Puerto Banus, to family holidays in Torremolinos, we love beach holidays on the Costa del Sol.

Benidorm is the major destination for sunshine holidays on the Costa Blanca, 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.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
