Winter sun: short haul vs long haul

Working out where to go for your winter sun break is likely to come down to two deciding factors: how far you're willing to travel and what it is you want from your break. If you're looking for a beach holiday close to home, the closest you can realistically consider would be the likes of Egypt, Dubai, and - at a push - the Canaries (as long as you book a hotel with a heated pool!).

Read more: Top short haul winter sun destinations & Top long haul winter sun destinations

For beach holidays further afield, your options open up considerably with anywhere from the Caribbean and Indian Ocean to the sandy swathes of Thailand, Indonesia and Australia on the table.

If however, you're looking for some warming winter sun to get out and about exploring the local area then there are a few more options under five hours such as Cyprus, Majorca, and again, the Canaries. It really does depend on you: what you want to do and how far you want to travel.

Popular winter sun destinations

The winter months see temperatures plummet across Europe leaving the Canary Islands as the only viable option for those hoping for some warm sunshine close to home.

Canary Islands sunshine away from the beach © Eric Gevaert - Dreamstime.com

If you're prepared to travel further however, your options greatly increase with hotspots across the Caribbean, Southeast Asia and Indian Ocean enjoying beautifully warm and relatively settled conditions during this time.

  • Europe - there's a reason the Canary Islands are consistently celebrated as a year-round destination, and that's thanks largely to the amount of reliable sunshine it receives every month. Don a wetsuit and enjoy water sports in Fuerteventura, take a hike in Tenerife's national park, or head to Gran Canaria where boutiques, restaurants and numerous spas will ensure you find space to unwind and relax. You may catch the odd shower and the sea is definitely reserved for the hardy, but hotels with heated pools and the availability of other activities make it a winner with families, friends and couples in both summer and winter.
  • Africa & the Middle East - Egypt's Red Sea has long attracted winter sun hunters thanks to resorts such as Sharm el Sheikh offering plenty of opportunities to bask in the warm north African sun. If you're happy to travel that bit further, Dubai remains hot without the burn of the summer and is very pleasant at this time of year, while South Africa is a great place for those looking to explore more than just the beach with a bountiful supply of things to do, such as visiting vineyards and historic sites, walking and experiencing the local culture. The islands of Cape Verde are also a good option, although the sea can be a little rough at this time of year so a hotel with pool is advisable. Morocco, Jordan, Gambia and Kenya's stunning coast are also excellent destinations offering the chance to explore gems such as Wadi Rum, Petra, Marrakesh and more.
  • The Americas - a hop across the pond will take you to resorts on the Atlantic, Pacific and Caribbean coasts in the likes of the USA, Belize, Guatemala, Venezuela, Honduras and Brazil. Covering such a vast area, each has its own diverse identity and character, giving you plenty of choice. Experience eco-Costa Rica at one of the country's many sustainable resorts, dance the night away in Miami or watch the moonlight flood the beaches of Bahia, Brazil. From city-side beaches to jungle resorts and remote islands, there really is something for everyone after a winter sun holiday in the Americas.
  • Caribbean - after waving goodbye to the hurricane season at the end of November, the Caribbean enjoys months of relatively settled, hot and sunny conditions, which explain its popularity at this time. Throw in the idyllic settings of Mexico's Cancun, Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua and more, thanks to glorious warm waters and beautiful beaches, and it's easy to see why the Caribbean continues to attract couples and families.
  • Indian Ocean - from the pearly white sands and turquoise waters of the Seychelles to the spectacular resorts in Mauritius, there's so much to choose from - enjoy diving in the Maldives, snorkeling in Sri Lanka or put your feet up in Kerala. As well as reveling in beach activities, don't forget to get tasting the local cuisine which varies from country to country but is guaranteed to ignite your taste buds and leave you wanting more.
  • Southeast Asia - Southeast Asia has plenty of great winter sun destinations thanks to its variety and, even with the chance of the odd shower in Indonesia, relatively dry and sunny conditions across the region. Thailand's always popular owing to the number of beach resorts in Phuket, Koh Samui and surrounding islands that offer competitive prices, while Langkawi, Bali and Lombok are also favoured destinations with beach lovers. There's so much to see and do across southeast Asia: those keen to explore some history will appreciate the sites dotted around Vietnam and Cambodia, while Burma and the Philippines offer plenty of opportunities to walk, see wildlife and swim in stunning waters.

Hopefully you're feeling thoroughly inspired about booking your winter sun holiday, and have seen a great value online deal for 2018/2019 to match. If you can't find what you're looking for, head over to our complete holiday deals section for even more offers, and remember to check out our weather guides to see what conditions are like in your chosen destination.
