Stretching Your Euros: Europe’s 10 Best Value Beach Destinations

Kos, Greece

Kos is one of many great Greek islands of great value. With budget airline flights and many accommodation options, competition ensures this one remains within easy reach.

Sarandë, Albania

For bargain basement deals on vacations, head to Eastern Europe. Albania may be off the tourist radar, but of course, that leads to some of the best deals on the continent.

Marmaris, Turkey

Though Turkey lies where east meets west, it’s generally categorized as Europe for travel insurance purposes.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

It’s burgeoning in popularity for city breaks, but Dubrovnik in Croatia also doubles up nicely for beach stays.

Benidorm, Spain

It might not be to everyone’s taste, but the bold Spanish resort of Benidorm offers incredible bang for your buck.

Zadar, Croatia

If Dubrovnik has too much of a city break feel for you, try Zadar instead. Also, in Croatia, it’s located on the Dalmatian Coast.

Tenerife, Canary Islands

Tenerife tends to offer the best deals in the Canaries, as it’s the biggest and most developed island of the bunch. It’s not all about bucket-and-spade tourism, with an unspoiled interior to discover.

Sunny Beach, Bulgaria

Bulgaria’s brash resort of Sunny Beach is a favorite among young European holidaymakers in search of sun and fun.

The Algarve, Portugal

Though in Western rather than Eastern Europe, Portugal is one of the best-value vacation destinations on the continent.

Ulcinj, Montenegro

Montenegro is fast becoming a popular package holiday option but suffers from a shortage of sandy beaches. That’s not the case in Ulcinj, which boasts a broad white sandy stretch.
