New Year’s Eve may almost be here, but the winter weather isn’t for everyone. Chilly mornings and layering up to head out to the festive markets can get to be a drag every year, so the appeal of jetting off to sunny climes is obvious and there’s plenty of places around the world where December means fun in the sun.
So here are some of the best destinations to catch some winter sun and chill out on the beach with a sexy companion of your choice.
The attractions of Dubai hardly need repeating, because as a destination it has it all, not least the promise of winter sun. There are water parks, desert safaris and luxury shopping malls and if you get nostalgic for the snow you can even go skiing. And for pure relaxation, there’s always the beach.
Fregate Island Private, Seychelles
For a real luxury trip to the sun when the weather at home is frightful, the Seychelles has a lot to offer, especially if you opt for Fregate Island Private. How exclusive is it? Well, it’s where Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston went on their honeymoon and if it was good enough for them, it’s got to be special enough for the rest of us. There’s slightly more chance of rain in the Seychelles at this time of the year, but the temperatures are always reliably high.
Goa has made its name over the years as a place for trendy young things to go and party, which is ideal if that is your idea of festive fun. But it’s also a great place to find some solitude in the sunshine on more secluded beaches like Agonda Beach. If getting in touch with nature as well as the inner you is on the menu, you can go on dolphin spotting trips amongst plenty of other activities.
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
The Turks and Caicos Islands have plenty of stunning places to enjoy the winter sun and Providenciales (more commonly known as Provo) is one of the best in the world. The beaches are sandy, the waters are blue and crystal clear, the coconut trees always sway lightly in the breeze and there’s opportunities to go diving or snorkelling in those beautiful waters or visiting the turquoise lagoon of Chalk Sound National Park if relaxing on the beach gets to be too much effort.
Where will you take your elite companion this winter?
