Lord of the Rings – New Zealand

Want to take a journey to the Middle Earth? Picturesque New Zealand was the location for the popular Lord of the Rings trilogy. With lush greenery, majestic mountains, and dramatic, winding rivers New Zealand is a wonderland for nature lovers. You can discover the amazing scenery on your own, or take a guided tour from one end of the country to the other. There’s even the opportunity to handle weapons and costume items from the film, as well as hear stories from the set. When you’re done in ‘The Shire’, you can take a trip to Auckland for beautiful beaches, hiking trails, shopping, and trendy restaurants.


Mamma Mia – Greece

It’s very easy to fall in love with Greece after watching Mamma Mia. The movie was filmed on several Greek islands, including Skopelos, Skiathos, and Damouchari. If crystalline waters, whitewashed houses, charming villages and beautiful beaches sounds like your idea of paradise, then you’ll love the islands of Greece. Most of the movie was filmed on Kastani Beach a lovely sandy beach backed by a small grove of olive trees, and encircled by steep pine forested hills. It’s a great beach for swimming and snorkelling, but it can get a little crowded. If you’re looking for solitude, rent a motorboat from Panormos, and head north (all the way up the coast).


50 First Dates –  Hawaii

This romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore beautifully captures the easygoing nature of Hawaiian culture and way of life. Most of the filming was done in  Kaneohe, Ka’a’wa, Wahiawa, Makapu’u and Waimanalo. Hawaii’s vibrant and colourful scenery will instantly charm travellers. Relax at one of the sun-drenched beaches with white waves and blue waters, visit Volcanoes National Park, or marvel at the grand beauty of Waipio Valley. Hawaii is great for family holidays with plenty of other attractions both kids and adults can enjoy including museums, aquariums and historical sites.


Die Another Day – Spain

Remember the famous bikini scene in the Bond film Die Another Day? Even though the film was set in Cuba, it was shot in Cadiz, Spain. You can even see the castles of San Sebastian and Santa Catalina, used for the DNA clinic at Los Organos in the film. Spain boasts great weather, rich culture, enchanting natural beauty and countless glittering beaches that dot the coast. What are family holidays without a day at the beach? No matter where you go in Spain, every city offers something enjoyable and unique whether it’s fine food, stunning architecture, wild landscapes, or endless entertainment.

Fancy a trip to Spain? If warm weather, a healthy Mediterranean diet, beautiful, relaxing scenery, and countless family-friendly activities sound like your idea of paradise, then you’ll love holidays in Costa Blanca. Book a stay at Marjal Costa Blanca Camping & Resort and make the most of your family holidays.
