Add some sunshine to your winter by jetting off to one of these much loved winter sun destinations. Choose from an active water sports holiday, an exotic tour of a far off place or just kicking back and relaxing while topping up on some much needed vitamin D.
High on the winter sun hit list are diving at some of the world’s top dive sites in Egypt or Thailand, or soaking up the sights in Mexico, Argentina or Brazil. Go on safari in Tanzania or South Africa, or just chill in a Caribbean paradise in St Lucia or Barbados. If you don’t mind a long haul flight, join the thousands exploring the beaches, vistas and warm welcomes of Australia and New Zealand.
For something a little closer to home, the Canary Islands are bathed in sunshine all year round, making your winter sun break just a short flight away.
