As birds migrate to sunnier climes for the winter so should we, for a week or, better, two. But where…? Caribbean shores deliver a guaranteed hit of winter sunshine at an easy pace. Head to Antigua for the Caribbean with an English country house vibe, or Mustique to rub shoulders with off-duty royals and A-listers. Jamaica is on the button for culture, character and cuisine while Grenada's natural bounty extends beyond its 45 lovely beaches to beautiful emerald waterfalls and spice plantations. Further west, Mexico’s beaches are a delicious prelude to steamy cloud forests and fascinating vestiges of Mayan civilisations.
In the Middle East, winter sun comes with a big slice of ancient wonders, from Jordan’s Nabataean city of Petra to Egypt’s epic temples along the Nile. In South Africa, beaches are complemented by the gastronomic and oenological treasures of Franschhoek, and the excitement of safari. And in the East, Thailand’s island-flecked coastline delights, with are-you-kidding-me white beaches topped with tropical forests.
