The Daily Roar

The most common mistake people makes in all-inclusive holidays.

The stress free luxury of an all-inclusive holiday can’t be beat. With all needs catered for, there’s more time to relax and soak up the sun. When you do score an all-inclusive vacation like the ones offered at, it may be tempting to spend endless days by the pool but don’t make this common mistake. Drag yourself away from the unlimited cocktails and you’ll discover heaps of local attractions. Plan an adventure away from the comfort of your resort to get the most out of your holiday, and to give you a head start, we’ve put together the following tips to get you started.

Go sightseeing

Put aside an afternoon to visit the nearby sights and you’ll create some memories to last a lifetime. Most of the sought after resort towns across Europe are conveniently located in historic regions where cultural treasures can be found on every street corner.

For those planning a visit to the golden shores of the Mediterranean there, are lots of places rife with cultural and natural attractions to keep you busy for weeks. Take Portugal’s Algarve and its historic capital, Faro. This charming city is home to plenty of sights such as the Arco de Vila, an impressive archway into the old town and the 13th century Cathedral of Faro. The city of Silves is another must-see destination which can easily be visited on a day excursion from all the main resorts. Take a journey back through time to a city famed for its old world charm, where you’ll find one of the best preserved castles in the region.

Get active

Sunbathing is great but avoid the temptation to spend the entire holiday on a lounger. Instead, explore the great outdoors and trying some thrill seeking activities. The Canary Islands are great for natural excursions where volcanic terrain, national parks, world renowned watersports and a pleasant year round climate make for an unforgettable outdoor adventures.

Why not learn to surf in Fuerteventura, climb to the peak of a snowcapped volcano in Tenerife or scuba dive sunken shipwrecks off the coast of Lanzarote? Whichever island you choose, you’re guaranteed a one-of-a-kind day out.

Explore the beaches

Many all-inclusive resorts offer direct beach access to their own slice of paradise but that doesn’t mean you can’t explore for yourself. Spain’s Mallorca attracts millions of visitors every year, which isn’t surprising given its internationally celebrated beaches. Instead of following the crowds to one of the busy stretches, plan a day trip to the protected bay of Es Trenc. You won’t find any high rise resorts at this secluded haven which is considered to be the finest beach on the island.

Alternatively, travel to the west coast and you’ll find the jaw dropping natural wonder, known as Es Torrent de Pareis. The dramatic gorge surrounds a small cove which makes for a scenic day of sunbathing. For those who can brave the heights, there’s also hiking in the area and heart stopping gorge walks.

Follow these tips and be adventurous on your next holiday. It makes for the trip of a lifetime and you can still indulge in the luxury of an all inclusive.
