Cheap Beach Holidays

Cheap Beach Holidays with On the Beach
Bigger better beachier

What do we love about beaches? Sand? Well yes, of course. Sea? To cool off, obviously. Sun? Absolutely - because no one likes a shady beach, am I right? Nothing beats that feeling of leaving your hotel and literally stepping directly onto the sand, or that moment the sea takes your breath away as you dunk your shoulders under. Heck, we even like that little crunch of sand you get when try to eat ANYTHING on the beach. Call us crazy, but a beach just makes everything better. Don’t you think?

Today is the day. You're up early, the other half has checked the passports a thousand times and you're on your way. The kids even had cake for breakfast… because you're on your jollies. Holiday mode is on! The only thing between you and the beach is the dreaded airport faff - the security queue, the food and drink queues and all that money you spend.

Now, that's what I'm talking about. With FREE security fast track on all package holidays and FREE lounge access for 4 or 5* package holidays, that's exactly what you get. Your jollies just… jollier.
