Guide of the best sunny destinations in August

The month of the glowing sun, paid leave and school holidays generates beach time cravings more than anything else. Because each summer destination has a unique momentum that justifies the whole trip on its own, our team will help you out to avoid missing out on it by guiding you towards destinations that are meant for you. The sea is waiting for you, set your clock on relaxation mode !

In France

The southern coast of France is right on your doorstep. Mythical, glamorous, this is your summer destination! The charm of its hinterland, rival the wild beauty of Corsica and its stunning blue skies and lively evenings are promises of beautiful memories. Whoever prefers the invigorating sea spray of the Atlantic should have his heart set on the Ile de Ré or the immense beaches of the Landes which run along the shade of the pine forests. And why not the Basque Country ? From Biarritz to Hendaye, there is always a nice beach to quench your thirst for relaxation and a wave to invigorate you. But perhaps you prefer to set sail for Brittany ? The island of Bréhat and its microclimate, Belle-Île en Mer and its turquoise waters will delight any nature lovers in quest of a nice getaway.

On a Mediterranean Island

The Mediterranean basin is bordered by a myriad of beaches each more beautiful than the next, is therefore a natural choice. In the Cyclades, the art of living and romantic life are a cultural trait. The spectacular scenery offered by the nestled villages on the cliffs will delight you after a good swim. But here stands Sicily, charming in many ways, it’s way of life and delicious cuisine will attract you to its coasts, proudly dominated by the Etna volcano. No wonder why you’re not the only one on the beach. Finally, Ibiza and its secret coves, clear waters and its festive spirit, will captivate you all the way into the night.

Southern Europe

The season is in full swing on the Spanish coast, bathed in sunshine, beaches and vibrant night-life. What more could you ask for... Charming, authentic villages perhaps? Drive a few kilometres from the Costa del Sol O , and like a miracle, Ronda, Mijas and Vejer de la Frontera open their arms out to you. Not very far from here, on the Portuguese coast, the Algarve region rewards travellers with pretty sandy presents nestled at the foot of steep cliffs. In these areas caressed by the ocean sprays, fortified cities, fishing villages and hiking trails are just a few steps away from the beaches. In the south, the beaches of Apulia offer fifty different shades of blue under their Blue Flag labels. Stretching from the Adriatic to the Ionian Sea, the heel of the Italian boot offers a rare combination of historical heritage, white coloured villages and seaside resorts.

Arab-Muslim lands

Enjoy with your loved ones, family or friends the pleasure of beach days and stop thinking about the potentially bad weather! Enjoying life, that is what you will do in Djerba and Hammamet with their waters vary from 25 to 27°C/80°F. Sea lover? Follow the trade winds to reach the Moroccan littoral in the company of seagulls. Surfing and kite surfing spots, family beaches and wild coves follow one another from Essaouira to Agadir via Mirleft and Dakhla. Are you more into sea and culture? You have to go to the Turkish Riviera! Lazing on a paradise beach and exploring an ancient city dating back more than 3 millennia in the same day is possible on the Aegean coast.

Off the coast of Africa

A beach in the middle of the Ocean, its white hot sand you can feel under your feet. Its turquoise waters tickling your toes and the unending blue horizon ... The rays of the sun caressing your skin... All of which are an ordinary day on a beach in Cap Verde. But to a certain extent, it’s more or less the same beautiful scenery on the Canary Islands or in Madeira. Change of scenery on Maurice island , if you’re looking for beautiful beaches embellished with multi-coloured coral reefs, the Reunion Island offers you a surprising range of circuses, plantations, mountains and lagoons. But perhaps you would prefer Madagascar, the red island or Mayotte and its clear waters where it's possible to swim right now....

In Asia

There is no need to pray to Brahma, Shiva or Sanghyang Widi, the Supreme Divinity, for good weather in Bali ! Against the tide of its Asian sisters, going through the monsoon period, the island of the Gods finds itself right in the sun's axis during the eighth month of the year. The exceptional mildness, the tropical vegetation, the different fragrances of incense, the enchanting music and the rice terraces that glisten under the sun: everything evokes Eden. Your main concern? Waking up early enough not to miss the magnificence sight of the rising sun on Mount Batur or Agung, the sacred volcano culminating at more than 3,100m. More travellers have now gone to Lombok, Flores or even East Malaysia where the monsoon period is finishing. What better refuge than the Sabah region, in the north of the island of Borneo, to reconnect with yourself and allow time to just go by....

On the American continent

“The West Coast has the sunshine” said the Beach Boys in 1965. The legendary Surf rock band was not mistaken. The month of August is definitely the best time to visit the American Golden State if you’re looking for a sunny destination ! The sun rays warms the atmosphere all the way from San Diego to the beaches of Santa Monica, to the greater enjoyment of beach lovers, surfers and travellers. But maybe you prefer sailing off the shores of Brazil or turn into an explorer for a day on the Island of Fernando de Noronha.? From coral reefs to the dolphin choreographies, to the incomparable biodiversity of the archipelago: everything here is designed for relaxation.

In Oceania

No sooner having set foot on these overseas countries that are lost in the immensity of the South Pacific, that life takes on another dimension. No one really knows what slows down the course of time here. Perhaps it's the blue lagoons, the lush forests or the stunning mountains on these islands? But one thing is sure, French Polynesia is a rare gem when it comes to sea resorts and seaside jewels. Seize the opportunity to visit Fiji while you’re exploring the South Seas. Intense and translucent, the incredible azure of the blue sky and the ocean explain the green of the forests in an breathtaking way. This explains why dreams are potentially endless !

Destinations you should avoid in August

It is better to avoid the Caribbean, which is the main target of morning showers and cyclones. The monsoon, which is pouring over South Asia is also likely to disrupt the weather conditions of your trip to Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam. No raindrops on the Arabian Peninsula, but transpiration drops.... It’s hot, really hot! Unless you want to melt or spend your days in Dubai's air-conditioned shopping malls, avoid the sweltering sun in the United Arab Emirates in August.
