Winter Sun Breaks to Beat the Blues
The Great British winter can be a real drag. Fortunately, there is a whole world out there waiting to cheer you.
While the Americas and Asia are options to bring you back a winter tan, even a short European break can take away the winter blues. A week or two away as the weather is getting cold can revitalise and help prepare you for the cold months ahead. So consider your options and pick the best winter sun break to suit you.
Believe it or not, cheap holidays to Goa provide a reasonable possibility. This bit of paradise on India’s west coast is an absolute treat. Goa has a mix of Portuguese and Indian culture, which makes for a very interesting holiday. The best thing about Goa is its beaches. It has several to choose from and each has long stretches of sand and glorious, turquoise sea. Visit Goa to take part in some watersports and to get that all important tan to see you through the rest of the winter.
For sun, sun and more sun consider heading to the beautiful beaches of Gambia. This African holiday spot has been growing in popularity over the last few years and is set to offer some very reasonably priced deals in 2013. Relax and take in the local culture along the 30 mile stretch of soft sand beaches.
Benidorm holidays are a great option if you can only take a short holiday or if you fancy something a bit closer to home. Book a villa, apartment or hotel and you’ll be able to get some time in the sun before you face the winter ahead. There is plenty to do in Benidorm in the winter months – the resort is full of great restaurants, beaches and bars - but with the added benefit that there are fewer tourists.
If you’re feeling the January pinch and are hoping to book a holiday a little later in the year, then consider a Crete holiday around May to catch some sun and kick start your healthy summer glow. From April, several cheap Florida holidays are on offer, so put a date in your diary for a trip to the so-called ‘sunshine capital’ to keep your spirits high during the winter months.
