Winter sun holidays
If you’d rather be taking coastal walks in the sun than shivering in the British winter weather, you’ll be glad to hear that there are some cheap winter sun getaways.
We recommend searching for winter sun deals in the Canary Islands, Egypt, Morocco, Mexico and many other fantastic winter sun destinations.
There are great savings to be made by booking ahead for 2019 / 2020, and some excellent last-minute holiday deals if you’re willing to be flexible with departure date and location.
Some vacations are better in the British winter months
Tropical destinations often experience bad weather and storms in the months running up to November, so January to March can be the perfect time to enjoy the sun without the worry.
Many people choose to visit places like Gambia, Kenya or Dubai and even further afield like Australia – where it’s summer.
If you’re looking for last-minute winter sun holidays in the Caribbean, islands like St Lucia, Grenada and Barbados are the most popular.
Alternatively, kick off the new year with holidays in Cuba, Mexico or the Dominican Republic; all of which offer great value all-inclusive and self-catering holidays in family-friendly resorts.
We’d be happy to package a winter sun holiday for you if you’d prefer to speak to someone.
Recommended winter sun destinations
We know it’s hard to choose where to go on holiday, so we’ve provided a few ideas for inspiration:
The Canary Islands
Hop over to Gran Canaria for some winter sun, where you’ll find that it’s still warm during the British winter months. This island is used to catering for tourists all year, so there will be plenty to do. With its beautiful marinas and the bougainvillaea-filled streets of Puerto Mogan, you’ll be transported to a slower pace of life. A family-friendly island, there are plenty of beaches, watersports and places to explore.
From the turtles and wildlife that make up this nature-packed destination, you’ll find that you’ll have the epitome of relaxation on white sandy beaches during the day, and have the opportunity to party the night away in the evening. If you’re thinking of cocktails served in coconuts with top-notch service, you’d be on the right track, as hospitality comes first in Barbados.
