Couples wishing to avoid the upcoming school summer holidays in July have a diverse variety of enticing destinations to choose from during June, whether its beaches, wildlife experiences, culture or city glamour that appeals.
Italy is romantic at any time of year, but in June, destinations such as the Amalfi Coast, Portofino and Verona are just a few of the stars of the show for loved-up couples. A mixture of stunning coastal scenery, delicious cuisine, centuries-old history and Verona’s annual open-air Opera Festival provide the quintessential Italian allure during June.
In the Mediterranean, Monte-Carlo in June oozes exclusivity and glamour, featuring a medley of casinos, fine dining restaurants, superyachts and designer boutiques, while the pretty Spanish island of Mallorca offers very pleasant warm weather, blue skies and sunny days filled with relaxing activities and delicious cuisine.
June is the perfect time to visit Ecuador. This delightful South American gem experiences warm, dry weather this month, perfect conditions in which to enjoy bird-watching in the Cloud Forest, while Peru continues to be warm and dry, making June a wonderful time to experience its culture, cuisine and Machu Picchu. Eclectic California is another great option, as is Canada, before the summer crowds descend.
For a peaceful and romantic luxury beach holiday in June, look to Bermuda in the Caribbean or Bali in Indonesia, which both enjoy sublime weather.
Alternatively, game-viewing in Botswana is easy in June, when beautifully warm days and shrinking water holes make predators and prey easier to spot, while Australia is experiencing its dry season in June and is an excellent time to visit the northern coast and snorkel on the Great Barrier Reef or head south to explore the iconic Australian Outback.
