If you’re anything like me, you’re probably dreading the seemingly never-ending winter months. The constant darkness, rain (or snow, if you’re lucky), and freezing cold temperatures tend to put a damper on my mood every year, and I’m always reluctant to leave the comfort – and warmth – of my duvet. I’d much rather curl up in bed with some hot chocolate and start planning my next holiday than go out in the cold – and I’m sure I’m not the only one!
With the cold weather setting in and the temperatures having already plummeted quite drastically, thinking about warm lazy days on golden sandy beaches, sipping cocktails, just sounds more and more appealing.
If you want to soak up the sun somewhere warm this winter and are in need of some inspiration, you’re in the right place. From the exotic Caribbean to the sun-drenched Canary Islands and the more tropical locations further afield, here are some of the best winter sun destinations you should consider visiting this winter.
Tenerife (as well as several other places in Greece, Spain, or Portugal) is actually one of those destinations I’d much rather visit during off-peak seasons when it’s a bit more quiet and the heat isn’t unbearable. Although Tenerife is undoubtedly one of the most popular European holiday destinations in summer, you can still take advantage of its gorgeous beaches and endless sunshine during the winter months. November and December temperatures are usually around 24 °C, which means it’s not extremely hot and humid, but still warm enough for you to enjoy swimming in the sea and hotel pools.
