Europe is an ideal destination for any travel fanatic, adventure seeker, party goer, foodie or even those just looking for a relaxing weekend away.

10. St Ives, England
Winner of a showcase of national awards including best family holiday destination by Coast magazine and one of the 10 best European beach destinations compiled by TripAdvisor, St Ives is a seemingly subtropical oasis where the beaches are golden, the vegetation is lush and the light piercingly bright. The town lies north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea.
