Winter Sun Holidays

Winter Holidays with On the Beach

Snow is falling, but is that really what you want? Ditch the knitwear and grab your swimwear with our favourite winter sun destinations. Don’t spend your days trudging through the soggy leaves, jet off to one of many places where you can feel the sand beneath your feet and the sun on your skin. Whether you fancy taking the kids away for Christmas, want to party non-stop with your mates in the Canaries or need a little sunshine with your loved one this winter, we’ve got you covered.

With deposits as low as £30pp, why not make your work mates jealous with your glowing skin and ‘wow’ your followers with that perfect sunset snapshot. Plus, don’t forget to check the weather whilst you’re there, as there’s absolutely nothing better than being in the blazing sun when it’s freezing at home. As the nights draw in and winter begins to chill your bones, why not check out some of our bargain getaways? There's no need to hibernate until next spring - get packing!

Winter sun holidays for families

Kids love Christmas, but just remember that Santa Claus travels the world too! Picture this…the whole family waking up on Christmas morning to beautiful blue skies, spending the day on the sunny beach and topping it off with a delicious meal that you haven’t had to slave away all day over a hot stove to make. This dreamy set up can be more than just a dream with our top family breaks for the winter season.

Remember though, it doesn’t need to be over the Christmas period! February half-term is still a fabulous time to take your kids on a beachy break. Plus, then you get the best of both worlds… Christmas at home and a nice winter sun getaway to look forward to.

Winter sun holidays for couples

Yeah, snuggling by the fire is cool, but have you ever had cocktails together by the pool while it’s raining at home? Beat the busy summer holidays and get your sunshine when you need it most by jetting off in the winter months with your other half. Long walks on the beach, romantic meals by the sea and a glass of bubbles whilst watching the sunset. Dreamy, right?

Winter sun holidays for groups

Get your mates together and beat the winter blues by escaping to the sunshine as a team. Whether you’re a squad who want to party all night or just laze by the pool all day, there is a destination for you. So get your tan on and have fun in the sun with your friends this winter without paying out peak holiday prices!

Short haul winter sun getaways

If you fancy a quick break in the heat, there’s no need to travel half-way across the world. Jump on a short flight to relax and unwind in the sunshine without hassle. With prices you can’t say no to and a flight duration that is shorter than your daily commute, it would be silly not to get some cheap-and-cheerful winter sun.

Mid haul winter sun getaways

If you fancy something exotic without going all out, we have winter sun destinations where you can live the Caribbean lifestyle with half of the journey time. From desert dunes to Canary Islands, get your dose of vitamin D with our mid-haul winter getaways.

Long haul winter sun getaways

Swap the UK’s snow for white, pristine beaches. If you want to get as far away from the drizzly winter weather as possible, go where the cocktails are served in pineapples and the water is pure, crystal blue. Chill out in the Caribbean, sun it up in South Africa or feel the heat in Florida. Wherever you choose, just make sure to pack your snorkel to see the tropical fish!
