Top ten escapes to the sun

Much to our annoyance, winter is not over. We’re craving sun and light and, most of all, heat. We’ve spun the globe and picked out our favourite sunny spots around the world, ten places to escape winter.

Tenerife

Tenerife

Tenerife - temperature 25 degrees

The largest of the Canary Islands is an island of vast diversity. It has white sandy beaches and all the lively nightlife that you would expect from a popular holiday destination. But away from the usual tourist haunts is an island of infinite natural beauty with remarkable landscapes and lush greenery.

Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria - temperature 23 degrees
The third-largest of the Canary Islands, Gran Canaria is a popular destination for holidaymakers looking for all that is on offer from this spectacular chain of islands. There’s a high-end marina moored with yachts; family-friendly beaches and lots of watersports; stunning landscape that includes rugged mountains and sand dunes; and, of course, a lively nightlife of clubs and restaurants.

Cyprus

Cyprus

Cyprus - temperature 19 degrees
The third largest of the Mediterranean islands, Cyprus is one of the most popular holiday destinations for UK tourists. Good weather year round, nearly five hundred miles of coastline, with sandy beaches and rugged outcrops, olive and citrus groves, and a history that can be traced back over 10,000 years combine to make the island in the Aegean a very welcoming place.

Santa Monica

Santa Monica Beach

Los Angeles - temperature 17 degrees
Los Angeles lives up to its stereotype: brash and glitzy. Yet if you scratch its superficial surface you’ll discover a culturally diverse metropolis politely sitting beneath. Santa Monica’s Pier and the Third Street Promenade shops have become even more famous than the actual beach, while Venice Beach remains a firm favourite for people-watching.

Bahamas

Bahamas

The Bahamas - temperature 23 degrees
Pink sand beaches, coral reefs, 2,500 cays, and more than 700 islands comprise this stunning archipelago. Although the Bahamas sits close to Florida and Cuba, centuries of British rule (and the Queen as head of state) means it retains a distinct British feel. Eco-travellers have plenty to do - visiting the preserved coral reef of the Andros Barrier Reef or Great Inagua Island, home to the world’s largest flock of pink West Indian flamingos.

Cape Town

Blessed with one of the most distinct and varied landscapes in Africa and pleasant weather year-round Cape Town offers an exciting experience to lovers of the great outdoors and anyone looking for a cosmopolitan yet relaxed city to visit.

Punta Cana

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic - temperature 26 degrees

San Juan

San Juan, Puerto Rico

San Juan, Puerto Rico - temperature 29 degrees
After stepping off a flight to San Juan most travellers are left bewildered by the abundance of activities the capital of Puerto Rico has to offer. During the day outdoor enthusiasts can hike the rain forest and surf the waves, while at the night the city is transformed into one of the nightlife capitals of the Caribbean.

Varadero

Varadero, Cuba

Cuba - temperature 24 degrees
These days, Cuba isn’t just about the glories of old Havana: mojitos, salsa and promenades along the Malecon. The abundance of powder-white sand beaches has been drawing in tourists on flights to Cuba and a rash of all-inclusive resorts (particularly around Varadero) has sprung up. All of which may have made Cuba the perfect holiday destination.

Unawatuna

Unawatuna Beach, Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka - temperature 29 degrees
The beaches (Trincomalee, Bentota, Unawatuna) are palm-fringed and soft-sanded, but this little isle also has a rich colonial history (Galle port was used by Persians, Arabs, Greeks, Romans, Malays and Indians before the Portuguese, Dutch and English arrived) and an inspiring cultural heritage (the cultural triangle extends from Anuradhapura to Polonnaruwa to Dambulla).
