We all know how long and dreary the UK winter can be. When the biting cold starts to take its toll, what could possibly be better than swapping the dark nights for pink pastel sunsets and a cocktail to stave off the last of the day’s heat? Recharge your batteries with a fly and flop beach break, or a sightseeing adventure to discover a new culture.

Where are the best places to visit for winter sun?

Thailand

Average temperatures: Highs of 29°C
Time difference: 7 hours ahead of the UK (GMT +7 hours)
Flight duration: Approx. 11 hours 15 minutes direct
Rainfall: 3 days of rain per month on average November-January

Thailand is known as ‘The Land of Smiles’ and a winter trip here is guaranteed to melt away your winter blues and have you falling in love with majestic white sand beaches, immense jungles and unique cities where historic temples are the highlight of the skyline. With so much to see, a winter trip to Thailand is certain to inspire a return visit in the new year.

Seychelles

Average temperatures: Highs of 32°C
Time difference: 4 hours ahead of the UK (GMT +4 hours)
Flight duration: Approx. 10 hours direct
Rainfall: 18 days of rain on average per month November-January

There’s something extraordinary about the Seychelles that simply has to be seen to be believed. With a gorgeous climate all year round, verdant tropical jungles, majestic boulders, and incredible coast on all 115 islands that make up the Seychelles, there are enough unmissable sights to see you through a lifetime, let alone a winter.

Grenada

Average temperatures: Highs of 30°C
Time difference: 4 hours behind the UK (GMT -4 hours)
Flight duration: Approcx. 10 hours with a stop typically in St Lucia
Rainfall: 18 days of rain per month on average November-January

Winter is the perfect time of year to swap the dark, cold UK for the idyllic sun-drenched shores of Grenada. If you want to get in ahead of the winter sun crowds, we’d suggest packing up your suitcase and heading to Grenada in December. Many people take advantage of the island’s tropical beaches once the Christmas period is over, so travelling in early December will make for a more intimate holiday, with less people around to join you in the incredible activities that Grenada has to offer.

Antigua

Average temperatures: Highs of 28°C
Time difference: 4 hours behind the UK (GMT -4 hours)
Flight duration: Approx. 8 hours 40 minutes direct
Rainfall: 12 days of rain per month on average November-January

This Caribbean gem offers more than its fair share of winter sun, stunning beaches, and unique activities. Winter is high season and the perfect time to immerse yourself into bustling Antiguan culture while the climate is at its warmest and driest. And, if you’re that way inclined, you might want to visit the best rum bar in the Caribbean or try one of the incredible restaurants found on the island.

Maldives

Average temperatures: Highs of 29°C
Time difference: 4 hours ahead of the UK (GMT +5 hours)
Flight duration: Direct flights take between 10-11 hours. Flights with a connection are likely to take 12 or 13 hours, depending on transfer time.
Rainfall: 13 days of rain per month on average November-January

End (or start!) your year in style and opulent luxury on a once in a lifetime holiday to the Maldives. Made up 200 unique islands that are the doorway to a breathtaking underwater paradise of coral reefs and colourful schools of fish, this is the perfect place to unwind. Especially as you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to luxurious resorts and spas filled with products by the world’s leading brands.
