Fly to the sun in less than 4 hours

Are you sweating your way through the last tough week of exams and are you dreaming of a spring break on the beach with a cocktail in your hand? Search no further, because the JoCo did some daydreaming and came up with their 3 favourite European holiday destinations which will match all your criteria!


It’s hard to believe that the absolutely stunning Algarve is only 3 hours away from our cold little country. The endless sand beaches with insanely blue water resemble the beaches of the far away Thailand, but then it isn’t so far away! Next to the famous rock formations at the coast, this region has got so much more to offer. While it can be quite busy at the coast, the hilly inland parts of the Algarve are still untouched by tourism. Over here you can enjoy the beautiful nature, tasty Portuguese food and some peace and quiet. However, if you’re more in the mood for a party, you can indulge yourself in the busy party scene of Albufeira. The Algarve has got it all!

Back to the islands! And this time not Ibiza, since everyone already knows that you can have a great time over there, but Sardinia! This huge island, in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, is home to the flamingo and I understand why. The spectacular coastline and rough nature appeal to the pretty pink birds so they thought, why not stay there? If the Spring break would last forever I think more people would stay as well … Because next to the beautiful nature Sardinia also offers the finger licking good Italian cuisine.

Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are the favourite holiday destination of many Europeans. And no wonder, because after 4 hours in a plane you’ll land in a totally different world. When you set foot on Lanzarote or Fuerteventura the warm sea breeze will come to you and the volcanic features of the islands give you the idea you landed on a newly discovered Star Wars planet. Okay true, the Canary Islands can be somewhat touristy and sometimes it might feel like you’re in little England but those English do have their good reasons to lodge on the Canary Islands. It’s cheap, the weather is always good and you can enjoy awesome surf spots. And that’s where you won’t see those bloody English tourists.
