While some holidaymakers may crave action and adventure, the prospect of time on the beach is enough for many Britons, new research has revealed.

While some holidaymakers may crave action and adventure, the prospect of time on the beach is enough for many Britons, new research has revealed.

According to a poll carried out by Saga Travel Insurance, 37 per cent of the under-50s and 26 per cent of the over-50s are at their happiest when lounging on the sand or by the pool.

However, 34 per cent of the over-50s said they like to spend at least some of their holidays exploring places of interest such as historical sites.

Andrew Goodsell, chief executive of the Saga Group, said that travellers should do whatever makes them happiest on their travels.

“Holidays should offer a much needed escape from daily stresses and strains,” he pointed out.

Anyone looking for a long haul beach destination could consider holidays to Australia, home of the famous Bondi Beach in Cairns.

This is also the location of the Harbour Bridge, while Queensland offers relaxing reefs and rainforests.
