Although Spain remains the most popular destination with British holidaymakers, cheap flights comparison site Skyscanner.net reveals Split among some of the more secret summer spots that are attracting travellers keen to escape the British crowds and discover somewhere new.
The Croatian coastline is becoming increasingly popular with UK travellers, and Split, gateway to Dalmatia, is a great place to base yourself, advises the site. Overlooking the Adriatic Sea and backed by rugged mountains, Split’s ancient Roman architecture will please culture vultures, whilst outdoor lovers can take a hike up Marjan, a dormant volcano covered in dense Mediterranean pine forest.
Other cities which made it to Skyscanner’s list of rising summer destinations include Izmir (Turkey), Tirana (Albania), Tel Aviv (Israel) and Ljubljana (Slovenia).
Barry Smith, Skyscanner Co-founder and Business Director commented:
“Instead of jumping straight on flights to Malaga this summer, why not try somewhere different? We are finding more people are opting for destinations a little more off the beaten track where they tend to find fewer crowds and a more genuine cultural experience.”
