Your guide to Winter Sun holidays
Eternal sunshine is the calling card of these island gems. Located just off the coast of Africa, the Canaries enjoy year-round sun as well as boasting striking landscapes, gorgeous coastlines, and a vibrant social scene. These winter sun holiday favourites are a perfect choice for anyone sick to death of grey skies and looking for an island paradise at bargain prices on flights.
Each island has a distinct personality and it’s worth going back to try them all! Tenerife, the biggest of the bunch, really does have something for everyone. Beautiful beaches, the famous Mount Teide national park and stunning nature, as well as a thriving nightlife, you really couldn’t ask for more. However, Tenerife isn’t your only choice for a fantastic midwinter holiday.
Famed for its lunar landscape, Lanzarote also has some fabulous beaches, like the three which make up the Playa Blanca resort - perfect for lounging in the sun and building a winter tan. Lanzarote also has an average high of 22 degrees, even in December. Talking of beaches, Fuerteventura has an amazing 150 of them, and with that Canaries sunshine keeping the temperature high, it would be rude not to exploit them for a winter break. We haven’t even mentioned the fabulous Gran Canaria, which will satisfy that craving for sun without breaking the bank.
The Caribbean and Mexico
There is a reason December and January are highpoints for holidays on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. When Europe is at its coldest and greyest, Mexico and the Caribbean enjoy their driest, sunniest, and most popular holiday period. UK winter is the perfect time to enjoy a sun holiday on a Caribbean island. Picture yourself sipping rum cocktails on the beach of the Dominican Republic, sunbathing on the sugar white sands of Barbados, dancing in the streets of Cuba, or embracing the laid-back vibe of Jamaica. Now that’s how we’d spend winter! With a fantastic array of all inclusive and half board hotels, there’s a resort catering towards every winter holiday preference.
If not a Caribbean Island then a winter break in Mexico is equally dreamy and we've got deals on flights and hotel packages, too. For relaxation in idyllic surroundings head to the stunning beaches of Tulum and the Riviera Maya. But if you’re looking to dance away those winter blues head to vibrant Cancun, where sun soaked days on the beach give way to throbbing nights of clubbing, live music, circus shows and so much more. With holidays to suit families as well as luxury adult-only resorts, whatever your budget and holiday style, you’ll find the perfect fit this winter.
