Something Different In June
While June is usually cheaper and less crowded than those peak season months, it's definitely worth considering somewhere off the beaten track to squeeze the most out of your getaway. The remote Portuguese archipelago, The Azores, have been called the Hawaii of the mid-Atlantic, with world-class hiking and diving opportunities and truly breathtaking scenery comprised of crater lakes, beaches and caverns, as well as two of Portugal's 15 UNESCO World Heritage sites. June will see you getting to enjoy the islands in bloom as well as sunny weather and pre-peak-season prices.
Or there's Norway, which has plenty to sell itself already; but if you're after a truly unique experience, visit during June when you'll be able to bathe in the light of the midnight sun! Some parts of northern Norway are south of the Arctic Circle so they experience full daylight at midnight.
June is a good month to visit the African island of Zanzibar. Generally considered to fall within its dry period, you'll enjoy days of endless sunshine, some of Africa's best coral beaches and a well-prepared tourism infrastructure - plus prices are extremely reasonable once you're there. However, if you're keen to stay closer to home - and don't fancy forking out for a long haul flight - consider the Isle of Man, which is more than just a tax haven; it also boasts beautiful scenery, rugged coastlines and in June - pretty agreeable weather to boot.
