I’m trying to plan a holiday for August and looking for some help.
Briefly, I’m hoping for the following
-In short, a sunny place where I can swim in the sea in the mornings, explore on foot in the afternoons and write in the evenings for the whole month of August.
-I don’t drive but I’d like to explore more than just one place, so easy bus rides/ boat rides to other places would be helpful
-Preferably a place where I can get by comfortably with English. Failing that, I’d feel more comfortable in a place where the main language is Portuguese, Spanish, Italian or French because I have some basic knowledge of these languages.
-I’ll be on my own so I want to feel safe walking around alone.
-A good beach with clean water within walking distance that isn’t too busy
-A town (or somewhere near to towns that I can take trips to) with historic architecture and or natural attractions (e.g. nature trails, caves, volcanoes)
-I don’t mind being in a place with other tourists (I know August is peak season) around but I’d rather it not be so overrun that it feels like England transplanted to a warmer climate
-I’m happy to short term rent a home or stay in an affordable hotel. I don’t want to pay more than £80 per night (preferably £50 max per night) on acomodation
-Wi-fi would be useful
-I’m thinking about staying in one place and using that as a base to travel to other locations (on day trips) but I’d also be happy to stay in multiple places if that’s more realistic (e.g. stay in a place where I can swim for one week, then move somewhere with historic sights, then move somewhere with natural sights)
I've only just started thinking about this and am very open to tips but to give you an idea of what I've been thinking about, I've been looking into places like Malta (but I know Southern Europe can get very busy), Central America (Belize, Mexico, Caribbean, etc, though I know the weather's not it's best), Hawaii (beaches but less architecture) and many other places. Basically, even with a little bit of research and common sense, I know that I'll have to compromise, especially since it's a last minute trip
Thanks in advance
