In recent weeks, we've asked Herald Travel readers for the best tips for summer breaks. From packing the car to global destinations, here's the best of what you said.
"Best summer break is at Tairua, in the Coromandel. You have the beach and the bush walks nearby." - Janice Fullam
"I choose, as a best summer spot, Cacha Pregos, on Itaparica Island, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. Cacha Pregos is a fantastic, laid-back place and Itaparica Island has plenty to do. They even have their own Club Med. Perfect." - Lyn Needham
"A towel, a chilly bin and a high tide at Cheltenham beach. That's all I need." - B Horace
"My top tip for the best summer spot in the world is diving on the Great Barrier - water has never felt better than this." - Ruth Halkett
"Top Summer Spot - Hop on a bike in Vancouver, pedal around the seawall in Stanley park, then head up False Creek to La Casa Gelato, where they have 218 flavours of ice cream!" - Kate Heaphy
"My top tip for summer would be spending a day at Otres Beach on the south coast of Cambodia... There are nice bars and restaurants right on the beach where you can plonk your stuff and spend your day migrating between the water, hammocks and comfy reclining seats." - Megan McCoy
"Best tip for the summer break - visit transfercars.co.nz to get some cheap transport relocating a rental vehicle across the country." - Dale Eastham
