Discover Air Canada Vacations' Top European Beach Destinations

Sublime shores in remote locales. Heavenly-hued waters lapping at your feet. The Caribbean? Not even. It’s Europe!

The Algarve offers up so many blissful beaches—it’s impossible to pick just one. Drive down the coast and pick your own favorite. ThePortugal City & Coast Independent Escape brings you to the best shores of the Algarve and lets you explore it at your own pace!


As if the iconic architecture and picturesque scenery weren’t enough, Greece’s best islands also wow with multi-colored beaches. Air Canada Vacations can help you plan the trip of a lifetime with the Island Hopping packages, including tours of the Aegean, Ionian, or Cyclades islands.


With swim spots scattered around Italy’s must-sees, it’s easy to pencil in a beach break here. Your shortcut to Italy's most glamorous shores is via the Best of the Amalfi Coast tour package!


Scoop up some Spanish sun on the island of Mallorca, the Canary Islands, and the Costa Del Sol. The Cobblestone Streets & Sandy Beaches option offers Spanish shores with a side of urban discovery. A 12-day Independent Escape, it starts in Madrid and ends in Barcelona, snaking its way across Costa del Sol in between!
