Best Winter Sun Destinations Around the World


While the summer months pass by, are you considering going for a vacation in the winter season? Do you want to bring in the new year in some faraway holiday destination or you just want to get some sun, away from the chilly winds and fog? Whatever be your reason, thankfully there is no dearth of winter sun destinations around the world to fit every budget. Go through this list to find out the very best of places around the world where you can get your fix of vitamin D in the winter!

1.       Madeira, Portugal: Located 1000 miles away from mainland Portugal, this exotic and beautiful island is one of Europe’s best kept secrets. From abundant natural beauty to colonial architecture and even a happening nightlife, this place has it all. The sun is shining about 6 hours a day, but at temperatures of 18 – 20°C, the weather is perfect for golf, walking, and sightseeing. This makes it perfect for a winter getaway.  For its lush green landscapes, beautiful coastline and volcanic peaks, we are totally willing to risk a little rain.



2.       Dubai, UAE: If you want more than a beach in your winter vacation, Dubai is the place to be. The city of superlatives is filled with towering skyscrapers, world-class shopping malls and marine-animal parks. Not to forget the beautiful Jumeirah beach or the IMG Worlds of Adventure indoor amusement park, Dubai has everything you could ever ask for. Indulge in a luxurious meal in Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest skyscraper), take a boat ride along the Dubai Creek, or simply soak in the pleasant sun while you embark on a desert safari. With limitless food on offer from cuisines all around the world and the hottest nightlife around, Dubai is surely the place to be this winter.



3.       Cyprus: Located in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, this quaint country has the best winter weather Europe has to offer. Take a sun-soaked break in this island country and light up your winter with history and mouth-watering food. There has been a significant Greek and Turkish influence on Cyprus’ culture, so expect a lot of variety in the ancient ruins all around the city. Or simply walk around the country’s capital, Nicosia to explore the museums and restaurants. If you are in the mood to party, Limassol is where the nightlife is at.



4.       Barbados: This Caribbean island is located just 13 degrees north of the Equator, so you can be assured of tropical weather all the year round. Head to the Barbados beaches in December or January when it is comparatively drier and indulge in some surfing. Barbados is a foodie’s paradise, with phenomenal seafood and Bajan dishes fusing cuisine from the West Indies, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean. However, Barbados has much more to offer than just sandy beaches, surfing and food. Spend some quality time with nature as you swim with turtles, explore botanical gardens or trek through the forests. If you want to unwind after a hectic day full of outdoor activities, just head to one of the numerous bars that are open till late.



5.       Florida, USA: One of the few destinations in USA that enjoys beautiful winter weather, Florida stays nice and warm for most of the winter. While we can guarantee you will end up spending most of the day on the beach, do visit the Universal Studios Orlando for its Titanic theme and Walt Disney World while you are here. Or you could just head to the Everglades national park and enjoy some time viewing the wildlife.





With this list, we hope to have added enough sunshine to your winter plans. So, cheer up and draw yourself an itinerary of which destinations to hit as the year ends!
