News / Winter sun: 5 destinations to escape the chill

September has come around once again and, for some, it can be hard to say goodbye to summer for another year. Sometimes we just need one final farewell.

Thinking ahead to when the colder days have well and truly set in and you’re longing for some heat on your skin; here is our list of the five best destinations to have on your radar when you’re in need of a dose of vitamin D.

Whale watching in Mexico

On the southern tip of Baja peninsula, Los Cabos is known for its sun seeker appeal; and it isn’t just people who escape here during the winter months. From late December, Grand Velas Los Cabos’ beach location provides the best views of migrating humpback whales as they breach the ocean’s glimmering surface.

The essence of barefoot luxury, Jumby Bay Island’s idyllic surroundings set the scene for family adventures in the sun; from exploring the island together by bicycle to letting kid’s imaginations run wild with nature tours at Jumby Explorers club.

Sketching in the Seychelles

Grazing the edge of the equator, Four Seasons Resort Seychelles sees balmy temperatures all year round.

Designer shopping in Dubai

While many of us despair at winter’s cooler weather, the latter half of the year sees Dubai’s usually scorching temperatures drop, creating a pleasant climate to explore this coastal Arabian metropolis. Lounge in one of Bulgari Resort’s luxurious super suites before exploring Dubai’s sprawling malls and world-renowned restaurants.

Traditional tea in Morocco

Being just a short three-hour flight away makes Marrakech top of the short breaks list for hot weather hunters. Surrounded by desert and famed for its traditional tea, this terracotta city warms through to the core.
