Winter sun destination

Published: 14 December 2014

Winter is the perfect time to travel, especially for those who want an escape from the hustle and bustle of Christmas festivities and New Year celebrations in the UK. For those wanting some sunshine, warmth and an escape from the cold, we have some great destinations that are worth a visit. These four destinations can also have some great value offers too so book soon!

The Gambia

They say great things come in small packages and this is certainly true of The Gambia. Whilst it is the smallest country in the mainland continent it is also known as the ‘Smiling Coast of Africa’. If exotic beaches, lush forests, mangrove swamps and nature reserves sound appealing, then this would be an ideal destination for you. With guaranteed winter sunshine, this is a paradise for sun seekers. And with it being in the same time zone as the UK and only a 6 hour flight away, you can be relaxing by the pool on the same day you arrive with no jet lag!


Cuba has always been a delightful and warm escapade for many travellers. It enthrals visitors from near and far with its gorgeous beaches, bays, mountains, rum and music. The warm and friendly people make it a popular tropical destination in the Caribbean and a perfect winter getaway. Cuba boasts a great nightlife scene too so relax in the day and get your dancing shoes ready for the evenings and dance the Salsa under a Habana moon! A great feel and perfect place with everything. Don’t forget to indulge in tropical fruits such as papaya too!


Stunning coral reef, postcard perfect white sands, emerald waters, 365 beaches and swaying palm trees, Antigua is the perfect Caribbean island for this winter. Charming, relaxing, romantic, sunny and with plenty to do, it’s absolutely blissful! Have a go at sailing, diving, snorkelling or windsurfing or sit back and relax in a luxury hotel, the choice is yours.


Barbados has always been considered as one of the top winter sun destinations especially for its glamour! With some of the best hotels and restaurants in the Caribbean as well as wonderful beaches, this is a great choice of destination for this winter. A tropical island with rugged beauty on the east coast and calm beaches on the west, it has something for everyone. A great ‘fly and flop’ destination with a ‘Little England’ feel, enjoy swimming and afternoon teas by the poolside!
