My Winter Sun travel wishlist (sponsored post)

I recently shared my Winter Travel Wishlist - a list of places that I would love to visit one winter. The thing that all those destinations have in common is that at this time of year they are very, very cold, so today I'm sharing some of the places that I'd like to visit for some winter sun with the family!

The Canary Islands

A few years back we spent a week in January in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands and we had a lovely time. The Canaries are lovely at the beginning of the year, pleasantly warm and not too busy, and it was still nice enough to spend our time on the beach and in the pool. We have booked a trip to Tenerife for January this year and I'm looking forward to a bit of sunshine after the excitement of Christmas has passed and the reality of a cold, grey January has set in! With a flight time of four hours, it is probably the closest place that you can get to from the UK to enjoy warmer temperatures during the winter.

A little further away is Dubai, definitely somewhere that I'd like to visit one day. Lovely and hot, with lots of resort hotels, swimming pools, and beautiful beaches. You can go up the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and if the children will put up with it, shop to your heart's content!


Florida is definitely our favourite family holiday destination. We've been lucky enough to enjoy a few holidays here already, but there is so much to see and do that I'd love to go back soon. We've only ever stayed in Orlando for the theme parks but Florida has plenty more to offer. I know that the childern would love to go alligator spotting in the Everglades, and there are some beautiful beaches along the coast. It is slightly cooler in the winter, but still very warm and pleasant with plenty of sunshine, and you are spared the daily thunderstorms that hit during the summer and autumn months. The cooler temperatures are also ideal if you are spending the day at theme parks, much more pleasant than during the summer heat.

Caribbean cruise

For me, I think that a Caribbean cruise has to be the ultimate destination for some winter sun. You can explore several different islands and travel between them in luxury, with plenty of entertainment and dining on board for the whole family. A cruise will take in several different islands so you can enjoy a variety of different beaches, and when you are at sea you can sunbathe or spend your time in the pool soaking up the sunshine.
