LONDON, November 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Some holidaymakers might breathe a sigh of relief as kids go back to school following half term, leaving beaches and hotel pool sides childfree. As the school gates re-open for the final push until Christmas, a number of people might be keen to snap up some cheeky cheap holidays abroad, and grab some much needed rays.

Direct Holidays brings you some of the best adult holiday destinations for this time of year.


Cyprus is a longstanding popular holiday destination amongst Brits and it is easy to see why. The stunning coastal beaches combined with strips of bars and restaurants makes Cyprus the perfect holiday location to relax and unwind. Ayia Napa is the clubbing destination of choice, while Limassol (Lemesos) is another popular destination for those looking to enjoy a well-earned break.

You will never be lost for things to do on a cheap Cyprus holiday. For example, for those looking for something a little different than just beaches and bars, they might want to take a stroll through more than one of the 50 boutique wineries, which are scattered across the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus.


Tunisia has become increasingly popular over the last decade or so attracting tourists from all over the world. Tunisia Holidays provides the perfect setting for a stress-free break - and one that won't break the bank as this country is renowned for its cheap prices. The country boasts stunning natural beauty, a vibrant North African culture, great resorts, and near perfect year-round weather. It ticks all the boxes for a sun and sea holiday in the winter months, with temperatures still in the teens and an average of six hours sunshine during the day.


Rhodes is a diverse and rich island which enjoys an exceptionally mild climate all year round. The vibrant nightlife combined with calm medieval-style back streets set against a backdrop of mountains makes it the ideal holiday destination for adults looking for some R&R.

For the more adventurous, Rhodes holidays can also include diving experiences where you can enjoy exploring underwater worlds and shipwrecks or cultural extravaganzas in the World Heritage listed Old Town of Rhodes.


Turkey is another jewel which offers golden sandy beaches for reasonable rates. The Southern regions, along the Mediterranean Sea are the most popular, offering an almost unspoilt coastline and a unique cultural heritage. Anyone looking for a low cost holiday abroad might want to consider the popular holiday destination as there are great resorts and bargains to be had in the off-season.
