Looking to get away this winter? Has the change in season left you feeling a little blue and in need of some winter sun. Even if the UK is getting colder, there’s always an opportunity to travel abroad and enjoy warm weather elsewhere without breaking the bank.
Where to get winter sun
There’s some locations that seem to have the sun year round, making them perfect destinations during the winter months to visit in the hunt for the warmer weather.
It might not be the go to Canary Island, but Lanzarote boasts beautiful weather year round, particularly in November and the winter months as tourists flock to grab some last minute sun. With a climate classed as subtropical-desert, temperatures surpass 20 °C in the winter months, meaning its perfect beach weather, and with cooler evenings than in the summer months, you really do get the best of both worlds.
With one of the warmest winters in the Mediterranean, Cyprus is the perfect european break to escape to for some winter sun. Often crowded during the summer months, the winter season tends to quieten down a little, making it much more relaxing and peaceful, not to mention some cooler temperatures when compared with the blistering summer heat. Even in the off-peak season, there’s still plenty to do with excursions being made cheaper allowing you to experience more of the island for less!
Take a long haul trip to somewhere exotic and visit Mexico for some winter sun. Tropical beaches, spectacular cuisine and a rich cultural history, Mexico could be the perfect answer for those looking for some winter sun a little further afield and a bit different from the norm.
One of Europe’s gems, Madeira is an archipelago made up of 4 islands that bask in the sun year round, making it the perfect destination to escape to for some winter sun. Crowds are less in the winter too meaning a quieter, more relaxed time away and with plenty of adrenaline fuelled activities to keep you busy, Madeira offers something a little different.
