We’ve rounded up some of the best places to book your January vacation, if you want some winter sunshine after Christmas.
Tenerife is a popular British destination year-round, but it’s still a great choice even in winter.
Just a four-hour flight from the UK, the island of Spain is still around 20°C, much warmer than the UK.
Mexico’s holiday hotspot stays around 30 degrees Celsius even in January, making it perfect for an extended break.
Many tour operators offer cheap all-inclusive deals on resorts in Cancun with sandy beaches and great Mexican food.
With flights operating back to Jamaica, there’s never been a better time to hit the Caribbean island.
Even in the evening, the temperature remains warm, dropping to around 22°C.
Located south of the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa, Cape Verde shares the dry climate of the Canaries but it is even hotter, with temperatures fluctuating in the mid-20s.
Just a six-hour flight from the UK, the islands provide a pleasant means of transport between a short flight to the Canaries or a longer trip to the tropics.
Egypt is a popular destination for Britons year-round, but it’s a great place to come to enjoy the winter sunshine.
It takes four hours and 40 minutes to fly there, making it one of the shorter destinations on the list.
Lanzarote maintains warm temperatures year-round. With a high of 21C and a low of 14C, Britons can fly and enjoy some much warmer weather than the UK.
It’s only a four-hour flight away, so if you’re looking to enjoy the sun without having to travel too far, Lanzarote is a great choice.
