Sunny Destinations

Best for sunseekers

If Britain’s dismal weather really gets you down and you choose your next holiday location based on the fahrenheit reading (the higher, the better!), we’ve got the perfect sun destinations for you. Thanks to low-cost airlines and short flight times to Spain, the Western Med, Italy and Croatia you don’t have to travel across to the other side of the world for unbeatable weather. And when you get there, divide your days between topping up your tan by the pool or enjoying days on the beach next door. Bright idea, right?
