Our Favourite winter sun destinations
With four main islands to choose from, buzzing resorts, lively entertainment and spacious beaches are what you can expect from the Canaries off north-west Africa. In Lanzarote have a go at world class watersports or take a trip to the Timanfaya National Park for thirty six 18th century volcanoes. The quietest of the Islands is Fuerteventura, which has beautiful white beaches and offers a sense of tranquillity. Take a winter holiday to Gran Canaria and visit the Saharan-style sand dunes in the quiet resort of Maspalomas, Puerto Rico for watersports or the lively Playa del Ingles which is the biggest resort of the island. Last but by no means least is Tenerife, which has both sleepy relaxed places as well as busier resorts like Playa des Americas or Los Cristianos. Popular day trip destinations are the Mount Teide volcano or Loco Parque, which is a combination of a zoo, botanical gardens, aquarium and parrot park.
Sun, fun and exceptional watersports is what you can expect for a holiday to one of Egypt’s finest Red Sea resorts. Sharm El Sheikh offers a different option to the traditional inland areas and is a modern, well planned resort with a Riviera feel. Add to this deserts, golden sands, warm waters, deep sea diving or snorkelling at Shark’s Bay. But if you looking for something more peaceful, the upcoming Nabq Bay and Montazah Bay offer unspoilt views over the towering Sinai Mountain. Egypt holidays offer the perfect winter sun holiday with over 9 hours daily sunshine and with average temperatures mostly over 25°.
With average temperatures above 32° across the winter months and perfect soft sandy beaches, Goa holidays are perfect for some winter sun. Goa offers a more westernised version of the sub-continent where exhilarating local markets stacked with spices and silks teem with activity and vast sandy beaches are lapped by the Arabian Sea. Head to Central Goa for watersports and diving, or to North Goa for the lively atmosphere and spend the day on the beaches at Candolim, Arpora or Baga.
When it comes to Spanish holidays on the mainland, you’re spoilt for choice. For year round sunshine head to the bright lights of Benidorm; it’s action packed with exciting entertainment and at the heart of the region with swathes of long sandy beaches and partying all night. For pretty resorts though, olive groves and a touch of Moorish spice head to Costa del Sol, with resorts such as Nerja, Benalmadena and Torremolinos being popular and only within one hour of the airport. For a chilled out beach package holiday, Fuengirola is ideal, with weekly markets, shopping and serious sunbathing on offer.
