What’s your dream Winter Sun holiday?

Beach holidays perfect for winter

There’s nothing better than lounging on a beach when it’s less than balmy back home. Barbados is wonderfully warm in winter. Couples can fall in love all over again at Dover Beach – home to the exclusive Sandals Barbados, where there’s free water sports and scuba diving. Dubai also offers pleasant winter temperatures. Make the most of the longest private beach in the city at Jumeriah Al Qasr, where you can spread out on a kilometre of pristine white sand. In Mauritius there are plenty of opportunities for water sports. At Maritim Resort and Spa make your way through jungle gardens to the beach, where you can learn to water ski or sail a hobie cat. And finding a winter beach in Europe is easy if you turn to Tenerife. The Ritz-Carlton Abama has a simply jaw-dropping location with a funicular railway to carry you down to a perfect beach under the cliffs.

City breaks for winter sun

These sunny cities come into their own from December. Visit Malta for tales of Templar Knights and ancient sights. Stay at db Seabank Resort + Spa. Set near the quaint town of Mellieha, this hotel is right next to a popular sandy beach. In beautiful Madeira, you can visit the city of Funchal by using the free shuttle from The Cliff Bay, a hotel with spectacular ocean views. The best way to immerse yourself in Miami is to stay at the Fontainebleau, right on Miami Beach. Dress up for a night at LIV; the hotel’s nightclub attracts the whole city. Don’t forget to consider Cape Town, where the winter weather is lovely and hot. Explore the city from the comfort and luxury of the One & Only, which is fantastically situated near the historic V&A waterfront. Don’t forget to nose around the wine menu – the hotel has an extensive cellar of South African bottles.

All Inclusive winter sun holidays

Go All Inclusive on your winter break and you won’t look back. You’ll love being looked after at an All Inclusive resort, where everything is taken care of – from drinks to dinner. In the Caribbean, you’ll find troubles melt away faster than the ice cubes in your complimentary cocktail. Everyone gets treated like rock royalty at the massive Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in the Dominican Republic. Take your pick from ten restaurants and take your dancing shoes on a trip to the ORO nightclub. In Antigua, at St James's Club & Villas by Elite you can enjoy not one, but two of Antigua’s famous beaches. The hotel’s free water sports will keep everyone entertained. Sticking to Europe? The Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife offers a magical stay for families. Set along the beautiful San Miguel de Abona Beach, you’ll find picturesque views and stylish accommodation. Children will adore the magical playgrounds, water park, splash pad and outdoor pools. Indulge in a spa treatment, enjoy a live theatre show and embrace the recreational activities on offer.

Luxury holidays for winter sun

Want to feel extra-special on your stay? Book a luxury holiday this winter to feel truly restored. Dubai sets the bar high. In the palatial environs of Jumeirah Zabeel Saray you’ll find the largest spa in the Middle East – complete with its own snow room. Warm up afterwards in the 59-metre infinity pool or in your room’s enormous, marble bathtub. At Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa you can discover the delights of Mauritius. Request a gourmet picnic so you can lunch on the hotel’s private island. Retreat from the world in the Maldives at the LUX* South Ari Atoll, where the only crowds are clownfish round the coral, and you can swim with enormous resident whale sharks. Luxury comes naturally to St Lucia. Stay at BodyHoliday, where you can sign up for every activity – from morning walks to meditation – or simply relax by the shimmering water in the lush tropical surroundings.

Winter sun for the whole family

On the trip of a lifetime to Florida’s theme parks, stay at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort Universal Orlando™ forearly park access. You can rely on sunny Barbados to deliver a beach holiday that’s fun for everyone. At Hilton Barbados Resort children from age two are taken care of at the kids’ club – so you can slink off to the happy hour, or bob in the multiple beachside infinity pools. On the other side of the Atlantic, Sandos San Blas Nature Resort & Golf in Tenerife makes the most of the sunny south of the island. With a mix of adults-only areas and kid-friendly activities, everyone will feel cared for. In Dubai, the Jumeirah Mina A Salam is the most family friendly hotel in the Madinat Jumeriah Resort, offering complimentary access to the Wild Wadi Waterpark and a free kids’ club.

Where to go this winter?


While not as hot as other destinations, Europe still has some cities which give some great opportunities for winter sun. Pleasantly warm rather than scorching hot, they’ll be plenty of sunshine to enjoy.

Tenerife, Spain.

Middle East

The Middle East has a near perfect winter-sun climate – you can expect daytime temperatures in the mid to high 20s, sunny skies and the very occasional burst of rain (if you’re lucky).


This is a lovely time of year to explore the souks or sites and relax by the pool. Winter temperatures rarely fall below 20c and the nights in Africa are pleasantly cool.

Indian Ocean

To experience the Indian Ocean at its best, you need to relax on soft white sands, snorkel in calm waters and take in the most colourful sunsets ­– the winter months are the perfect time to do just that.

Far East and Australia

It’s not just the warmth of its people that’s particularly alluring at this time of year. A European winter is their summer – the rainy season is over, the temperatures are high and the sun shines for longer.
