Cyprus

The third largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Cyprus plays host to hundreds of thousands of well-heeled visitors each year primarily from Europe and Russia; landing in droves on its shores to soak up the much-touted all seasons sunshine. In recent years, its tertiary educational institutions and universities have gone from strength to strength, boosted by a highly educated English speaking populace, and the result has been an uptick in popularity amongst international students enrolling from Europe and Asia in particular.

Greece

The resurgence and resiliency of Greece’s economy in the face of recent economic difficulties has been rooted in no small part to the steadfast commitment amongst European visitors who continue to seek the idyllic sun and surf that Greece offers. The Greek islands of the Peloponnese lead the charge forward, with the island of Crete firmly at its helm.

Malta

Boasting a laundry-list of enviable qualities, Malta is home to beautiful beaches, a sunny climate, as well as architectural and archaeological wonders including 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Add to that mix an English speaking and highly educated local populace, and the result is a great place to enjoy a “bleisure” trip – in other words a trip that combines both leisure and business.

Croatia

Ranked the 18th most popular tourist destination last year, Croatia’s entry into the EU a short four years ago has helped to usher the once hidden gem of the Adriatic into a Golden Age of global visibility and accessibility. Popular for boating and magnificent yacht charters, the Croatian coastline is dotted with grand harbors and tiny secluded islands – add to that its 10 UNESCO World Heritage sites and the small fact that it is the setting for the hugely popular Game of Thrones series , and there remains little doubt as to why Croatia is on everyone’s “must visit” lists.
