United Kingdom

Spring break is not all about sand and beaches. Spring break holidays in UK can be as exciting with its national parks, seaside towns and ancient historical sites.

  1. Spring break may not be considered a tradition here but most of the people do take vacations after exams and classes. There’s what we call Laboracay which take place during Labor Day which is a holiday here. Moreover, taking a break after school or the term is really refreshing and really recharging. Not only to the brain but also the whole being of the person.

  2. We do have Spring Breaks too! Here, India being a vast country, most my school days Spring Break I travelled all over India. Of late, many do take the spring break to visit nearby countries incl Srilanka, Bali, Singapore etc!

  3. I have never tried spring break. Here in the Philippines, it’s not something common, in fact, I only know about that through the movies. lol. But one thing’s for sure, all the beaches are really lovely!

  4. We don’t like traveling on “classic” travel week because of the crowds! But a lot of your ideas are pretty good cause they are not the usual hotspots, specially the United Kingdom. I love trips that aren’t about the beach and coconuts under palmtrees.

  5. These are indeed beautiful places to visit in a spring break. Surely anyone who spends his day there would have a relaxing stay. Love the water as much as the greens. Just the perfect place to commune with nature and be lost for a while.

  6. Interesting! I had never thought about doing a spring break in the UK. I’ve been in summer and fall, but never in spring because I thought it would rain too much. I just got back from St. Thomas and it is a great place for an American to visit. No passport and the beaches are amazing! So is the rum.

  7. I have never experienced spring break because it is not really practiced here in the Philippines but Punta Cana which is in your list looks to be a perfect destination for any event – spring break or otherwise. I would love to wade in the clear blue waters and play along its the fine sandy shores. St. Thomas Virgin Islands looks to be pristine and a must-visit as well. Well, give this girl a beach hut and I’ll be happy for life!

  8. I haven’t been to any of them 🙁 Very good destinations and spring is indeed the perfect time to be there.
    I have often vacationed in European countries during spring and found it so pleasant. Noting these places down for future plans. 🙂

  9. Love this list of top 5. Although I haven’t been to these places yet, I find Dominican Republic at the top of the list. I live on a tropical island yet Dominican Republic has been top of my list not just for spring break. Punta Cana really captures my heart. Thanks for sharing about this, it added more to my list.

  10. This looks like a nice list. We don’t have spring break here in my country as we only have two seasons. Rainy and sunny. There’s no in between. Though I believe spring or not, these places are worth the visit as it has lots of great places to see. Hopefully one day I can visit these places. 🙂

  11. Spring breaks though not so common from where I’m from, it’s so popular that we became aware of its nature and purpose. In PH, student with their families look forward to summer break as it is their time to head to the beach to cool off.
