<span style="font-size:14px;"><b>Stoupa, Greece - </b>Stoupa is the new gem of Greece that becoming famous as <i> the New C&ocirc;te d&#39;Azur</i>. It is one of the south Mediterranean&#39;s &quot;coolest&quot; and newest hot spots placed in fascinating area called Mani, on the coast of southern Peloponnese in Greece. This small and very laid-back town is very inspirational for artists, writers, musicians, philosophers. Also great for families and groups. Great atmosphere, clear turquoise water, fantastic not crowded sandy beaches and the mountain backdrop makes Stoupa even more spectacular. Just a coach ride away are the ancient ruins of Olympia and the Corinth Canal. There are some 20 restaurants strung out along the beach, a few small hotels, and many rental houses. You can&#39;t stay at Stoupa without visiting the Inner Mani. the only part of Greece never conquered by invaders. The Maniots built tower houses, some of which have been restored, and holed up in them carrying out local feuds.The contrasting scenery on the two different coastlines is very apparent and you will not find more interesting and varied scenery elsewhere. It has a strange and mysterious quality to it with many ancient churches and the old villages with their tower houses, built to defend themselves from the other feuding villages.</span></p>

<span style="font-size:14px;"><b>Mersa Matruh, Egypt </b><b>-</b> one of Egypt&rsquo;s best kept secrets. Mersa Matrouh lies 290 km west of Alexandria and it lies on a bay on the Mediterranean. It is distinguished by its 7 km long beach, which is one of the most beautiful in the world. The beach is famous for its white soft sands and calm transparent waters while the bay is protected from the high seas by a series of rocks forming a natural wave-breaker. Cleopatra&#39;s beach is probably the most beautiful of Mersa, perhaps of all Egypt, but it offers bad chance for swimming.Agiba Beach is the pride os Mersa, even if it is nomore then 30-40 meters long. It is well protected with cliffs ans sand is cleaner and water purer. There are few important monuments and tourist sights (Ruins of the Temple of the King, Pharaoh Ramses II drown city of Caesar,drown Palace of Cleopatra, Rommel&#39;s Hideout - - cave, hewn in the rock, where Rommel drew up plans of his military operations). As a very conservative and traditional town, Marsa Matruh is extremely safe. But unfortunately, there are still plenty of stories about Western women exposed to a very negative attitude from local young men. With few precossions steps you would be safe and enjoy this unique summer City.</span></p>

<span style="font-size:14px;"><b>Lithuania Curonian Spit - </b>there is a skinny slice of land starting in the Russian territory of Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea, with a tiny piece of Lithuania at its end: the Curonian Spit. This UNESCO HERITAGE site becoming more and more popular for its sandy beach, forest and desert-like sand dunes crowd onto a two-and-a-half mile wide peninsula. The largest town on the spit is Nida in Lithuania, a popular holiday resort, mostly frequented by Lithuanian and German tourists. Beautiful surroundings, variety of time spending and marvelous landscape of dukes, Baltic seaside and Curonian Lagoon compose an impression of admiring a real gemstone, that, according to UNESCO criteria &ldquo;V&rdquo;, is an &ldquo;outstanding example of traditional human settlement, land-use and sea-use which is representative of a culture and human interaction with the environment&rdquo;. The sandy marine beaches of the Curonian spit together with nice traditional resorts, mature pinewoods and the magnificent vistas over the drifting dunes and the Curonian lagoon form the most valuable tourism resource of the whole region. Thus making the Curonian lagoon a tourist destination of an international scale. July and August are the warmest months of the year with the main daily air temperature reaching +17&ordm;C, so it&#39;s perfect for tourists who like chillier summer destinations.</span></p>
