Where to go on vacation in May?
Take advantage of May's mild weather and tranquility to plan your next vacation. Here are some perfect destinations to visit in May:
Syracuse, Sicily: Sicily is a fascinating island rich in history, culture and natural beauty. The mild weather in May offers the opportunity to explore historic cities and especially Syracuse. In this beautiful city you can visit the island of Ortigia, the oldest part of the city. We at Seafy recommend you also visit Noto, a Baroque city that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can admire the beautiful Baroque churches and palaces and stroll through the cobblestone streets. If, on the other hand, you are interested in the beaches in the area, we suggest visiting the Vendicari Nature Reserve, a protected area that is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily.
Costa Brava, Spain: This region of Spain is famous for its beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters and picturesque coastal towns. May is an ideal time to visit the area, as the weather is mild and the summer crowds have not yet arrived. Here you can visit the city of Girona, famous for its medieval old town and for being the location for some Game of Thrones scenes. Also, you can visit the Cap de Creus Natural Park, a protected area that offers breathtaking views of the sea and coastline.
Santorini, Greece: With its small white houses with domed roofs, blue churches and enchanting sea views, Santorini is one of the most romantic places in the Mediterranean. May is a good time to visit the island, as the temperatures are pleasant and the spring blooms are a sight to behold. We recommend visiting Oia, a picturesque village on the edge of the caldera that offers breathtaking views of the sea. We also recommend seeing Perissa beach, known for its black volcanic sand and crystal clear waters. If you like history and archaeology instead, you can visit the ancient city of Akrotiri, which was buried under the ash of the volcano during the eruption of 1627 BC.
Majorca, Spain: Majorca is one of the most popular Balearic islands and has much to offer visitors. Spring is a perfect time to visit the island, when the blooms are at their peak and the temperatures are perfect for hiking and walking. Majorca also offers a wide variety of beaches, restaurants and bars, as well as a vibrant nightlife. If you are interested in culture and architecture, we recommend visiting Palma Cathedral, the largest Gothic cathedral in Mallorca. Also, Bellver Castle, a medieval castle situated on a hill overlooking the city of Palma, is a must-see attraction.
