The Canary Islands
These islands boast year-round sunshine and warm temperatures, making them a perfect destination for a winter getaway. Tenerife is generally the warmest of the islands in winter, with an average temperature of 22°C. Waterparks in Tenerife like Siam Park and Aqualand remain open in December, and the water is warm enough to enjoy the rides. The South of Gran Canaria also has a similar climate to Tenerife and holds the perfect balance between relaxation and adventure.
This exotic chain of islands off the West Coast of Africa comes with a guarantee of mid-20°C sunshine during the UK wintertime. It holds stunning unspoilt beaches with indigo-blue seas, magnificent volcanic landscapes and an abundance of exotic wildlife. There’s a mixture of cultures within the islands, with African, Brazilian and Portuguese influences, creating a variety of music, fashion and food. The scattering islands also give you the perfect opportunity to do some island hopping thanks to Cape Verde’s ferry service and inter-island flights.
Tunisia is home to some of the best beaches in North Africa, with soft white sands and crystal-clear waters. This means that no matter where you stay, you’re never too far from a beautiful sun-kissed stretch of sand.And with an average temperature of 18°C in December, there’s plenty of opportunity for some needed time on the beach. But the beaches don’t compare to the mighty Sahara Desert that stretches over Tunisia, creating a truly breathtaking landscape. If you’re captivated by history, then the Roman Ruins of Tunisia are must-see sights.
