Best for blissful beaches plus outdoor activities galore…

Tenerife or Lanzarote

 

Cast adrift in the Atlantic, the sub-tropical Canary Islands feel like another world with their awe-inspiring volcanic scenery – yet lie just over four hours from the UK. Year-round temperatures hover in the 20s, making the islands heaven for fresh-air enthusiasts and beach-lovers alike. It’s the perfect winter getaway, but how to choose between the archipelago’s five islands? Each has its own distinct flavour, but our top picks are Tenerife and Lanzarote. If you like to mix beach time with thrilling hikes around Spain’s highest peak, the 3,700m high Mt Teide, set your sights on Tenerife. The biggest of the Canary Islands, it boasts a diverse landscape, from its 50+ golden beaches and charming colonial towns to the lunar landscape of El Teide National Park. Superb hotels abound, from swish luxury resorts to stylish self-catering apartments. Lanzarote, meanwhile, has a low-key allure with its pretty, white-washed houses basking beneath curving palm trees and an entrancing volcanic backdrop dotted with cacti. Along with gorgeous beaches (some with inky black volcanic sand) there’s a thriving arts scene, with galleries and sculptures scattered around the island, the legacy of local-born artist Cesar Manrique. From laidback family resorts to chic adults-only hotels, there are stylish accommodation options for everyone with the added bonus of staying on UK time!

Best for sun-bathing with a dose of culture…

Cyprus or Malta

 

While the rest of the Med tends to close its shutters for the winter months, Cyprus and Malta bask in sunshine year-round, thanks to their southerly locations with both home to a rich cultural heritage. If you’re after a small island packed with attractions, Malta is for you. It may be petite, but it packs a punch – from UNESCO-listed Valletta’s cathedral, palaces, and museums to the extraordinary prehistoric temples in the island’s southeast. The coast is pocketed with crystal-clear coves, perfect for a refreshing dip. Cyprus, the mythical home of Aphrodite, casts its own spell on visitors. It’s a rich blend of cultures and traditions, although most visitors come for the magnificent white-sand beaches. Delve inland, however, and there are sleepy stone villages, medieval castles and archaeological sites hidden among the olive groves Winter is a wonderful time for hiking, cycling and golf, with cloudless blue skies, perfect temperatures and a clutch of stellar hotels.

Best for an exotic tropical escape…

Goa or Gambia

 

With over 100km of idyllic coastline and sun-kissed beaches framed by coconut groves, Goa is the stuff of winter sun dreams. A kaleidoscope of Indian and Portuguese culture, it’s a heady blend of vibrant markets, colourful fishing villages, crumbling forts, temples and churches. Whether you want to unwind completely, go exploring or throw yourself into water-sports such as parasailing and scuba-diving, it’s easy to find your perfect break. Don’t miss the mouth-watering cuisine, a blend of fresh seafood and delicate Indian spices. Olympic Holidays offers a range of delightful boltholes, from bijou family-run beach hotels to luxurious spa resorts set within lush tropical gardens. Prefer to try somewhere more off-the-beaten-track? The Gambia is a gorgeous, unspoiled slice of West Africa that has managed to stay quietly under the tourist radar. Blessed with talcum-soft bays such as Kololi Beach, it’s ideal for absorbing some winter rays, but there’s so much more on offer. Try a mini safari to see tropical birdlife and chattering monkeys, paddle a canoe along a tributary of the River Gambia, browse for batik art at bustling markets and sample just-caught seafood at one of the excellent local restaurants. Best of all, come home totally refreshed as The Gambia is in the same time zone as the UK, so you can wave jet-lag goodbye.
