Tailor-made trips & tropical beach escapes
The warmth and sunshine don't have to stop when winter arrives. Whether you're looking for an action-packed escape or simply want to top up that tan whilst temperatures plummet back home, these holidays are just the antidote to banish those winter blues.
If you don’t want to go too far afield for some sun, look to the Canary Islands – Tenerife is a long-time favourite for its mix of beaches, star-gazing and spectacular national parks – or Madeira, with its dramatic cliffs and glorious, old-world accommodation. Portugal, while cooler, still offers some fine weather across the country.
Meanwhile, in the Middle East, the likes of Oman and the United Arab Emirates offer an intoxicating combination of desert culture, mountain adventure and relaxing days on pristine, golden sands. Further afield, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean have a treasure trove of tropical islands to explore. Those looking for a longer adventure and sun on the other side of the world need look no further than Australia, where pristine nature and beautiful beaches surround iconic cities.
Whether you're exploring the beaches and fine wines of South Australia, or kicking back with relaxed days under the Caribbean sun, a winter sun holiday has a certain indulgence to it. Start planning your escape below, where you'll find a selection of our finest winter sun breaks.
Famed for its natural beauty, mild climate and fabulous fortified wine, Madeira is the perfect year-round destination. Explore the island's myriad highlights on this tailor-made road trip.
