LONDON, January 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The festive season is in full flight and that can only mean one thing for certain. While we can't guarantee good presents and there's no way of ensuring the perfect Christmas party - one thing we can always count on is some rubbish weather. Even the most scenic of snowfall will eventually turn to slush. However luckily there's still a way to escape the gloom. This holiday season you could swap the fireside for the sun lounger and opt for seaside and sun holidays abroad. Here's a look at some warmer climate getaways that will allow you to enjoy this Christmas sunny side up.
But it's not Christmas without the cold
If you're a sucker for doing things the old fashioned way, you can still enjoy a traditional British Christmas abroad. There's plenty of turkey and ham waiting abroad at typical tourist hotspots, and you can even pack the reindeer print sweater that your granny has so kindly knitted for you. The only difference is the climate. There are countless warm places waiting to be enjoyed, from the vibrant sunshine and stunning beaches of a Mexico holiday through to a warm Canary Islands getaway - where the temperatures rarely dip below the twenties! Come January you will feel warm, relaxed and refreshed for the new-year.
Finding the right price
All inclusive holidays are a great way to ensure your holidays in the sun don't break the bank - especially after the annual Christmas splurge! There are plenty of great deals for the Canary Islands, which is one of the most popular winter sun spots - as warm weather is guaranteed. The only major decision is choosing which one to visit. Fuerteventura has some fantastic scenery to explore, while Lanzarote boasts a range of beaches, some with fine white sand and others with black lava rock pebbles, reflecting the island's volcanic origins. Tenerife is renowned for water sports, and you won't have to shiver on the sand as the water is warm even in the winter. And last but not least, Gran Canaria, whose mountainous terrain is just waiting to be explored.
Winter into spring
Although winter officially ends in March, sometimes spring can be a little on the chilly side. Look for sunny locations that are only a few hours away, like Spain, or maybe plump for a break in an exotic location like Goa or Tunisia. If you are looking for a holiday to the USA in 2013, then Florida is a good bet; it's not known as the sunshine state for nothing. Cheap holidays to Cyprus also guarantee some rays at this time of year.
