    Spain - Costa Blanca

    Spain in June, you know it's going to be hot! And with an average high of 32°c /90°f and upwards on the Costa Blanca it's a safe bet if you are looking for some June sunshine and beaches in Europe. Probably the best known holiday destination is Benidorm, with a long history of holiday makers, busy hotels, plenty of restaurants and shopping, and long wide sandy golden beaches. But outside of popular Benidorm there are miles and miles of gorgeous beaches on this coastline, from Calpe, Javea, Denia, Torrevieja and the gateway town of Alicante. Alicante boasts lovely beaches as well as being the second largest city in the province with all the history and array of architecture that comes with an old port city. It begins to get fairly busy in Spain in June, but you can make your holiday what you want it to be; so you can laze around on beaches, partake in the local spanish cuisine, enjoy the watersports or head out of the busy tourist districts and dive into the culture of this incredibly popular coast of Spain. European Destinations >

One of the most popular being Nærøyfjord (or Naeroyfjord), a World Heritagde site, is Nature at its most awesome. So we aren't talking sizzling temperatures but it is a warm and mild 14°c /57°f. Enjoy one of the most modern cities in the world, Norways capital Oslo, or one of it's traditional villages such as Vingelen with old wooden houses and it's ancient viking culture.

June has the longest daylight hours and being so high up in the Northern Hemisphere you'll be able to make the most of the long days with around 19 hours of daylight and the sun setting at 10:44pm!

    Hot in Cyprus in June is rather an understatement! However if you haven't been here before and are looking for somewhere different to go then Cyprus should certainly be on your list. It's all about the hotels in the south and the beaches in the east. Sun worshippers in the south and parties in the east. However saying that, the East - mainly Aiya Napa is not just for party people, the magnificent beaches tempt everyone here, so you'll find every age group and every type of accommodation to suit you.  And it's very easy to avoid the clubs which are a little out of the way.  The food here is divine, especially if you choose a local taverna rather than a tourist cafe along the strip, even in a tourist cafe choose a souvlaki and it will be delicious.  You will be looking at around 30°c /86°f and pure sunshine.

    Hooray! Tobago isn't in the hurricane belt! So visiting tobago in June is a great idea. When most of the other Caribbean islands head straight into the hurricane season from June through to October laid back Tobago will be continuing to benefit from a steady warm temperature of around 30°c /86°f. There is a little more rain in June however most of it falls at night and you will get the odd short burst of a tropical downpour in the afternoon from time to time. You can take a day tour over to its nearby neighbour of Trinidad, enjoy diving or snorkelling on the spectacular reefs, or simply soak up the sun on this friendly little Caribbean island. Tobago Reviews >


    Aruba is another Caribbean destination that sits outside of the hurricane belt so a great choice for a June holiday in the Caribbean. It lies much further west and south in the Caribbean than the other islands, which means it's a little further to get to, but an unspoiled gem!  It's likely to be around 32°c /90°f with the odd tropical thunderstorm now and then. Often included on some great cruise Itinaries at this time of year Aruba has an interesting mixed heritage with many different influences with dutch and spanish being a large influence and it certainly makes for some unique and delicious Aruban cuisine.

    St Lucia

    Nothing says luxury Caribbean holiday like St Lucia does!  And not being peak visitor time it means you can enjoy this haven of sun and relaxation in June at a fair price.  It does lie within the hurricane belt, but big storms are very infrequent and activity often bypasses St Lucia to the North West. Any tropical rainfall is usually short and sweet and in the afternoon, so join the many thousands of travellers that enjoy St Lucia in June.  Choose a trusted holiday company to book your St Lucia dream holiday and they'll discuss their hurricane policy with you to ensure your holiday goes smoothly should the very rare event of a hurricane happen. It's probably going to be 30°c /86°f in this beautiful location not far from the equater, those glittering waters are just waiting for you to float around in them! St Lucia Reviews >



    Cuba in June is hot and humid typically around 31°c /88°f. This is low season in Cuba, and the reason for this is that it is the hurricane season from June to November. But it's not like a hurricane hits here every week or even every month! So it doesn't stop thousands of people visiting Cuba in June and getting some great deals. There is more chance of a hurricane in August and October, so in June the risk is very low and you are more than likely going to have wonderful weather with a tropical thunderstorm now and then. It's always a good idea of course to just make sure your travel insurance covers hurricanes or book with a good Travel Agent and ask them about their hurricane policy. So if you are looking for cheap and cheerful, all inclusive, white caribbean beaches and a bit of culture you'll have it all in Cuba in June. Cuba Reviews >


    Barbados in a fantastic Caribbean destination in June, because although June to November is hurricane season in the Caribbean - the location of Barbados means it tends to be out of reach of the hurricanes with the likelihood of one hitting every 25 years, so it's pretty much outside the hurricane belt - hooray! Another Caribbean holiday island that's good to visit in June. Its 30°c /86°f and fairly humid at this time of year so a cool off with a dip in the ocean. Barbados Reviews >

    Dominican Republic

    The Dom Rep in June is close to it's peak temperatures around 30°c /86°f, but it is also hurricane season - this obviously puts a lot of people off. On the other hand hurricanes are more likely to hit the island in August and September statistically, and if it helps a hurricane will hit land here around every 10 years, so overall June is fairly low risk. Which means, as long as you have travel insurance that includes hurricane cover or you book through a reputable company with a good hurricane policy then you could be heading to this gorgeous island with a superb deal, and less crowds to share the idyllic miles of white sands. Dom Rep Reviews >


    Mexico in June is one of the hottest times to visit, sizzling away around 32°c /90°f. However you'll be correct in thinking that it's the hurricane season, which means that although the weather is great with a storm from time to time, it means there is always a risk.  Hurricanes tend to be more prevalent in August and October in Mexico, so June is a fairly good gamble. You'll get some great prices outside of peak season, and maybe just a little less busy. As we always recommend, check your holiday company's hurricane policy and make sure it's covered in your travel insurance and you'll be taking the worry out of booking a holiday in this beautiful holiday destination.

    Thinking of a safari in June? Famed for it's astonishingly beautiful National parks such as the Serengetti and incredible wildlife, Tanzania in June is a very good month to visit.

Although you won't see the Great Migration in June, it is an excellent time for safari as June to November is the dry season. The major rains come to an end in may, so you will still see a little greenery but as is well known when sightseeing for African wildlife it's much easier to see the animals in the dry season as the animals will head for watering holes and so are easier to find and foliage is less dense so great for spotting the wildlife. See our travellers reviews for Tanzania. African Destinations >
