15 Winter sun destinations

Winter holidays often rhyme with snow, Christmas and skiing. However, for some people, it is the perfect opportunity to change the weather and spend some time in the sun. If you prefer spending your winter holidays on a beach getting suntanned, then in this article we will share with you 15 winter sun destinations. If you are looking to travel you could try using a private jet. Indeed, it could be useful if you intend to visit multiple tropical islands for example. It is less expensive than you think if you use private jet rental companies such as AEROAFFAIRES.


The Maldives Islands are ideal for anyone seeking sun, beaches, and crystal-clear water. It's a wonderful island with breathtaking views. Enjoy your stay in a magnificent location where you can relax in the sun with lovely weather during the winter.

The Canary Islands

Tenerife and La Palma in Spain's Canary Islands are popular winter destinations. Great weather, wonderful accommodations, and it is not a costly vacation. There are numerous activities available, such as snorkelling, sightseeing, walking in nature, and so on.


Morocco is an ideal winter vacation destination, featuring destinations such as Agadir, Marrakech, and Rabat. Beach resorts, luxurious hotels, traditional flea markets, local cuisine, desert excursions—there are so many things that you will forget you are in winter.

Seychelles Islands

If you want to visit another tropical paradise, go to the Seychelles Islands. Snorkelling with dolphins and turtles in pristine ocean water is not your typical winter vacation. However, we can assure you that if you want white sand, sleeping in villas on the water, beach parties, and seafood, the Seychelles Islands are a must-see.
