I could not name a single person who would say no to the glorious offer of soaking up some sunshine and warmth during the tediously long and gloomy cold season of the year. Get ready because you can enjoy the winter sun by visiting these easily accessible locations. |
Party Like a King in Dubai
With temperatures staying at a comfortable average of 24°C, Dubai is an amazing destination to soak up the winter sun. During the day you can lounge by the pool of your hotel and at night you can immerse yourself in the energetic nightlife by checking out the truly amazing variety of cocktail bars and pubs.
Get Culture-Saturated in Egypt
Egypt is a place that everyone should visit in order to marvel at the awe-inspiring pyramids. The best time to go so that you do not suffocate in its horrendously hot summer temperatures is during the very last or very first few months of the year. During the winter, Egypt stays at a wonderfully dry 22°C. You can tour the pyramids without breaking into a sweat – and trust me, you will look much better in your pictures.
Adventure in La Palma
La Palma is a winter sun destination with extra oomph, namely the breathtaking volcanic landscape of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park. This is the perfect place to get adventurous and enjoy a long hike in comfortable temperatures of around 18°C.
All-Ages Activities in Cyprus
When it comes to a family holiday, Cyprus offers great value accommodation and loads of shining daylight to keep your vitamin D levels up during the colder months. The temperature is a bit on the cooler side at an average of 16°C (it’s the warmest of all the Mediterranean islands) but still well-worth a winter trip with the kids.
Save Money in Tenerife
If you are a budget traveller, it doesn’t get better than Tenerife. With the mild 20°C temperatures and plenty of solar rays, you will be perfectly satisfied while enjoying your well-deserved break.
Have a City Excursion in Italy
If you are up for a city break but do not want to see any rain or snow, the south of Italy is the place to visit. This area offers a great variety of historic sights but, perhaps most importantly, it has loads of sun (even if the temperatures during winter are a cool 14°C).
Group Escapades in Morocco
Morocco is a great holiday spot for groups as there’s something for everyone. The Atlas Mountains are within easy reach of the historic city of Marrakesh. Not too far away lies the bustling capital of Morocco (Rabat), and Casablanca is just down the coast (a must-see for the movie fanatics). With so many activity options and an average temperature of 18°C, this winter sun destination offers a great variety of ventures for a group holiday.
Whichever of these destinations you choose, you are guaranteed to have an amazing time soaking up the winter sun and escaping the gloom and rain of the UK.
