Plan a Winter Escape to Sunny Egypt

Woolly jumpers, chapped lips and gloomy days… winter really is a bit miserable. But not to worry! Help is at hand from On the Beach to escape those winter blues. You may be starting to fear the arctic conditions in the UK, but there are plenty of top destinations sure to inject a bit of sunshine into your life in the coming winter months.

The most popular winter beach retreats are often the Canary Islands, promising a temperature of around 20 degrees each December; however another guaranteed winner for weather is Egypt. The average temperature for December and January is 21 degrees and this rarely fluctuates more than a few degrees. Not only this, Egypt is one of the most reliably dry countries over winter – so leave your winter wardrobe in the UK!

The most visited resort among holidaymakers is the tourist-friendly city of Sharm El Sheikh. With a whole host of activities and excursions, centred in and around Sharm itself, it’s a guaranteed supplier of winter fun. Here’s our pick of Egyptian hotels to lift your winter spirit…
