Winter is the time for longing – for warm weather, golden sandy beaches, refreshing blue seas and clear blue skies! But it does not have to be. Make your winter 2023 all about travelling, and not about longing for better weather and exotic experiences. If you have a bucket list of destinations to visit, let this year be it for ticking them off one by one. The winter months may be cold and dreary in the UK, but some places on Earth are blessed with amazingly pleasant weather all through the year. These are the places that should be on your bucket list to visit for a dream winter holiday. Without further ado, here are our top winter holiday destinations that promise an unforgettable experience.

Cape Verde

Located off the west coast of Africa, these gorgeous islands are nothing short of tropical paradise. Whether it is the pristine beaches and crystal blue waters of Boa Vista and Sal, the scenic valleys of Santo Antao, or the party atmosphere on Sao Vicente, there is something to enjoy for everyone. Cape Verde offers year-round sunshine and mild, pleasant temperatures in the winter months, making it an ideal winter holiday destination for couples and family holidays.


Another exotic heaven, the Maldives comprises a group of beautiful islands idyllically located in the Indian Ocean. With plenty of luxury island resorts, abundant wild and sea life, postcard-worthy beaches, and most importantly, a pleasant climate, the Maldives is one of our top winter holiday destinations. It is also the best choice if you are looking for a beach destination for your wedding or honeymoon that has the best resorts and facilities to make your special occasion even more special. What’s more? If this island nation is on your bucket list, you can book a direct flight from the UK and reach this dream destination on the same day! 

The Canary Islands

Every Brit has either been to or wants to visit the Canary Islands in Spain. It is because, unlike other tropical beach destinations, the Canary Islands are only a 4-hour flight away from the UK, have plenty of splendid beaches and scenic places to visit, and temperatures that wondrously stay between the high teens and the lower twenties. From Tenerife and Lanzarote to La Palma and Fuerteventura, several popular islands offer great accommodations, beaches, water sports, and scenery to make your winter holiday memorable. 


If you are happy to fly to an exotic faraway destination this winter, there is no better place to visit than Thailand. Apart from picture-perfect beaches, the country is also home to lush valleys and beautiful national parks, delicious local food, exciting water sports and other activities, a hot and happening party scene, and awe-inspiring religious and historical sites. Thailand also has all kinds of accommodation options to suit all budgets, making it the perfect destination to escape to, during the miserable winter months in the UK. Some of the best places to visit are Koh Samui, Phi Phi Islands, Phuket, Bangkok, and Pattaya to name a few. 

Apart from these popular winter holiday destinations, several other countries offer a welcome respite from the wet and cold weather in the UK. Some of them are Egypt, Morocco, the Caribbean islands, Florida, Costa Rica, and St. Lucia.
