Where in the world can you go for some winter sun?
It’s the million-dollar question when it comes to booking a holiday – where should I go at this time of year? To help you find the answer, we’ve come up with an interactive tool that’ll tell you where’s hot, when. As well as average temperatures for the month you want to travel in, it covers details like hours of sunlight, rainfall and humidity levels. So you can choose a date – or a destination – based on the weather.
If you’re flying from the UK (December to March) and don’t want to go too far, your best bets for catching some sun is in North Africa or the Canary Islands. As you move into April, Southern Spain becomes quite attractive. And by the time May comes around, suddenly the options are much wider, and remain so right through to October.
You may need to upgrade to the latest version of your browser to view the interactive map.

About The Research
In most cases, we were limited to providing details of the weather in major cities. But the graphic still shows patterns which will give you an idea of the warmest places to visit at the appropriate time of year.
