More than once it has already happened that friends asked us at different times of the year for advice, but where is the best place to go now? What about the rains now? And what is the weather now in ...? Well, and so on. To make life easier for myself and all of you, I have collected here the most attractive destinations and countries where it is better to relax in each specific month..
The set of recommendations given below is general, and for each country it is imperative to separately look at the weather forecast and read the climate features of the exact place and beach where you are going. The information was collected based on reviews from the forums, because on the websites of travel agencies and tour operators, complete nonsense is often written, like the fact that it is best to have a rest in Egypt in August (the heat is incredible there!)
