There’s something special about an island timeshare. What is it for you? Is it looking from one side of the beach to the other and seeing the curvature of the land? Could it be enjoying a signature cocktail in your own private cabana next to the pool? Or is it simply the atmosphere of exclusivity? Whatever it is, island holidays feel special.
We took a look at at five European locations that host an island timeshare. At each of these, discover that same feeling for yourself and then enjoy it year after year. These resorts set a high bar in terms of luxury. Furthermore, they provide a highly enjoyable environment and facilities that will make you want to come back.
Island Timeshare: It’s About the Location
We begin with the Pestana Grand Ocean Resort, located on the island of Madeira in Portugal. This ideal island timeshare enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate all year round. Consequently, you can beat the school holiday crowds and go out of season if you wish. The resort offers stunning views of the sea and high cliffs of Cabo Girão, and a wide range of facilities such as the health spa with indoor pool, extensive range of restaurants, bars and the largest hotel pool on the island. A true treasure, this is one of the last ocean front properties along Funchal’s coastline.
Next, we look at Diamond Resorts’ White Sands Beach Club on the island of Menorca. A halcyon oasis on the quietest of the Balearic Islands, here you will find couples, families, groups or solo travellers all continuing to keep the best kept secret around. Step inside your charming, generously sized apartment and marvel. Open the terrace doors to a view straight out of a holiday brochure over the bay of Arenal d’en Castell. This hillside resort offers access to its own secluded beach, along with a nearby cafe bar for light refreshments.
In Lanzarote, you’ll find Club Las Calas. Be transported by stunning views of the ‘lunar landscape’ for which the area is famous. The white sandy beaches of Papagayo and Playa Blanca are less than half a mile away. However, if you’d rather lounge by the pool, there are four to choose from. If you don’t want to lose your regular routine on holiday, make use of the gym, squash courts and sauna. Most nights this island timeshare offers live entertainment at no extra charge, so you’ll never be bored. This resort is an ideal fit for those wanting a mixture of fun, entertainment, relaxation and rejuvenation.
A Little Further Afield…
If you don’t mind a slightly longer flight, discover Panareti’s Royal Coral Bay resort in Cyprus. A few steps will carry you to a tiny yet stunning Mediterranean beach, and the complex looks out over the ocean. This resort has struck just the right balance between modern and traditional design. The facilities are everything you would expect, as well. All meals are freshly prepared using local ingredients, and the menu changes each night (aside from the weekly barbecue night). Most tastes are catered for, including at least one offering of a local dish. Make sure to try some authentic Cypriot cuisine!
Finally, we arrive at Costa San Antonio in Malta. This all-inclusive resort is a real charmer, with excellent facilities in a picturesque Mediterranean setting. You can relax as little or as much as you want! Either spend your days lying in the sunshine by the infinity pool, or take a bus into nearby Valletta for culture, tradition, and history. You will never be bored with the breathtaking views on this particular excursion. If the beach is more your thing, the seafront is mere minutes from the resort, meaning that you’re never far from sun, sea, and sand.
