Cheap holidays with things to do in the day?

I am going on holiday with my boyfriend mid September but we can not decide where to go.

Ideally I like to avoid the crowds and do stuff during the day rather than the night. We enjoy historical buildings, beautiful views, empty beaches, art galleries, scuba diving etc

I am not expecting to have it all but does anyone have any suggestions of an interesting cheap place that won't be crowded?

We were thinking along the lines of:
Spain- Barcelona
France- Paris
Greek Islands

We would love to go to Italy but its out of our price range unfortunately

Answer on Cheap holidays with things to do in the day?

We have a thriving tourism industry in Cape Town which is no doubt a cheap option once you are here. Once you've covered the flight (just checked LHR to CPT is less than 900GBP) the local costs are cheap. You can easily find a boutique hotel with rooms for 40GBP (per night for two). Gourmet meals in great restaurants (with real napkins) for 10GBP and throw in a great bottle of wine for another 10GBP.

We have an abundance of historical buildings, beautiful views, empty beaches, art galleries, scuba diving etc. Although it's pretty cold for scuba diving so you may want to try paragliding or big game fishing.
