Winter Holidays in the Sun - Hot Places to Go


By Susan Jones  21 July 2014

Is winter a season when you get lazy and would hardly leave the comfort of your home? You would better think twice about this. Being passive in the cold season can lead to depressive moods. You can do yourself good and exchange the bad weather and grey settings with a summery sunny beach. It is all just a flight away.

Choosing Paris or Madrid as a winter escape destination may not be the best idea because the weather is tricky. We offer you some better suggestions – some of the best and safest bets out there:


Tourists describe it as a place of blinding luxury. Apart from its brand new skyscrapers, Dubai enjoys a hot climate all year round. It has boomed in recent years as a touristic location. It differs from other sunny destination through its vibe – it is fast, vibrant, compelling. This is not your classic sun-and-beach holiday.

 You may still book a hotel on the beach, nevertheless. As for the other must-haves like restaurants, clubs and bars, everything is as sophisticated as it can be. Dubai may be further away than Greece and /turkey, but the flight duration is still decent: 7 hours.

Cape Town


If you are the long-haul trip enthusiast and you want to add an enviable spot to your list, why not go this winter to Cape Town? The whole South African city is considered to be a resort. Few are aware though of its white beach strips and its exotic rural areas. The urban centre itself is a glorious one and is bustling. While winter reigns in Europe, South Africa goes through its pleasant summer. Not only that you will enjoy warm temperatures and clear skies, but you will also have about 10 hours of daylight each day. It makes for a more expensive destination, but it is surely worth it.




Barbados is a classic destination in the Caribbean. This is due to its wonderful beaches, its top-class restaurants and the varied, exciting social life. Besides, it is the best season for the island. It’s all very comfortable in terms of temperatures until March ends – not too hot and definitely not cold. The sea is also constantly warm. The general atmosphere is described as the perfect tropical paradise. Hotels are luxurious and have all the modern amenities. Some are also surrounded by vast gardens. As an alternative to Barbados, you may also want to fly to St Kitts, also in the Caribbean.




Already a highly popular touristic spot, Tenerife in the Canaries represents the winter escape of many. It has many lively resorts with some luxurious amenities. A number of restaurants here have been distinguished with prestigious awards. Tenerife surely knows hospitality at its best. The mountainous relief makes it a very special place to visit. The best time to visit is January-February. As much as it is about the weather and the landscapes, tourists also choose Tenerife for its heavily discounted prices.




Marrakesh in Morocco combines history, ethnic wonders and exotic architecture with the warmth of a southern destination. The city in the desert offers accommodation in excellent boutique hotels with modern facilities. At the same time, you can get to know the local culture. You can sample the rural lifestyle. At your hotel, you may relax in the pool and see the distant mountains covered in snow – a wonderful contrast. There is beauty, culture, history and comfort in Marrakesh. There’s more of the good news: many low-cost airlines fly here.


Greece, Malta, Cyprus, Turkey and Egypt are also safe (and highly rewarding) as “winter sun” destinations. With the more European locations, however, you have to be careful about the month you book in. The closer to spring, the better! The climate tends to be a little colder during the winter months, but if you go, for example for southern Greek islands or for the southern coast of Turkey you could have a lovely sunny trip. Before booking anything, consult with several travel agents or use a highly trusted comparison site to show you the deals. You may boom early on, but you may also wait for the last-minute offers. Sometimes the prices are spectacularly low, especially if you are using a comparison site to search for these discounted offers.
