10 Destinations to Escape the Winter in Europe

Let's have a look at the ideas:

1# Sri lanka

I'm a big fan of Sri lanka. Visiting this country in February last year was a great decision. I admired its beautiful beach in Mirissa & Midigama, drunk lots of tea & fresh juices and went hiking in Ella. It was a short vacation of 9 days though but a great mix of activities! Check out my travel itinerary!

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, snorkelling, surfing, sightseeing, exploring, hiking, meditation, yoga

BEST TIME TO GO: December to March

2# The Philippines

The Philippines are simply a great idea when you want to run away from winter in Europe! ;) We went in February this year. Imagine perfect beaches, crystal-clear water, colourful fish, yummy food, fresh coconuts and a laid-back atmosphere. A destination we'd recommend to everyone! There are many islands to choose from - Palawan is one of the remote ones and an eye-catcher! A hint: Go to Port Barton.

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, snorkelling, diving, boating, kayaking, exploring, yoga

BEST TIME TO GO: Between November and April

3# Canary Islands, Spain

Although, we prefer less-travelled destinations, we set our feet on the Gran Canaria island. The best decision ever since it has remained one of our favourite travel spots out there. This island is really something special in terms of landscape diversity. Our period of travelling was January. If you need a 7-day itinerary, make sure to check out this blog post.

ACTIVITIES: Hiking, swimming, wave-surfing, wind-surfing, kite-surfing, wildlife-watching, kayaking, exploring

BEST TIME TO GO: All year around

4# Porto, Portugal

If you want to stay in Europe but you still want to catch some sun-rays, then head to Portugal. Porto is a great winter destination if you like sightseeing and all that city stuff :) Alternatives to Porto are Lisbon and Coimbra. Beach lovers - the Algarve region would suit you perfectly ;) I visited Porto this year in February and enjoyed lots of sun and even went to the beach!

ACTIVITIES: Tasting wine, eating Mediterranean food, strolling along the coast, exploring, boating, trip to the Douro Valley

BEST TIME TO GO: During the summer months but winter is great too!

5# Sitges, Spain

Want some Caribbean feeling in Europe? Well, there is a place I've already visited twice so far and it's called Sitges. It's a lovely city, located at the seaside, and only a 40 minute car-drive from Barcelona. The cliffs nearby are impressive, and so is the turquoise water of the Adriatic sea. Get more infos here.

ACTIVITIES: Sightseeing, exploring, shopping, tasting Mediterranean cuisine, enjoying night life, hiking

BEST TIME TO GO: Just before or after the summer months but winter is great too!

6# Zadar, Croatia

Why not exploring the Dalmatian coastline of Croatia? We spent some lovely days in Zadar around the New Year's Eve in this cool apartment! Have a look! The weather was perfect, so we strolled down the streets of the old town, checked out the coast and even made it to the National Park called Paklenica to do some hiking! What a great winter escape!

7# Puerto Rico

Nothing new - the Caribbean islands during Europe's winter are a great escape! One of the islands, I was able to visit this year, was Puerto Rico. Although, I've written down my thoughts on the things I liked and things I didn't like, I'm much aware of its difficult situation after the latest hit of the hurricane. I do think its beaches are out of this world (Luquillo beach, i.e.) so make sure to head to Puerto Rico for some beach fun and with this action support its tourism.

ACTIVITIES: Swimming, kayaking, water-ski, jet-ski, national park, zipline, surfing

BEST TIME TO GO: December to April; July to August

8# Yucatan, Mexico

A flight ticket to Mexico is one of the best things you can ever have :) Due to country's largeness its landscape is quite diverse - my favourite part in Mexico is the Yucatan peninsula with its islands: Cozumel and Isla Mujeres. The ocean water is so clear and beautiful and the locals are so so friendly and funny! Definitely a great destination if you want to escape the winter in Europe. Here is a list of the top things to do in Mexico.

9# Abu Dhabi, UAE

Another destination for your winter escape out of Europe is Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates). Once there, make sure to visit the majestic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We visited it in the evening, which left us even more impressed due to its special illumination. An alternative would be Dubai or an awesome destination nearby -  Oman.

10# South Africa

If you want to escape the winter in Europe, South Africa is a great destination to do so! It will be summer in this country, which means lots of sunny days! The Kruger park with its wildlife, the Blyde river canyon, the majestic Drakensberg mountains and the famous Garden Route with the legendary Cape town are great reasons to choose this country as your winter destination!

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.

    Marie Bailey (Saturday, 09 September 2023 21:18)

    Review and contact the most honest and powerful spell caster called Dr Isikolo via website (https://isikolotemple.com)
    My name is Marie Bailey and all for good, i am appreciating Dr Isikolo who helped me with his great powers restored my home and the happiness i shared with my husband and its indeed something i am forever grateful for. It happened that i was helpless and downcast for almost a year when my husband left me due to marital issues we encountered. I did all i could to save my marriage and nothing worked until DR ISIKOLO came to my rescue. He helped me and the love and happiness i shared with my man was restored back and more amazingly. I know it sounds wierd if truly he can help anyone but he is 100% guaranteed not to disappoint you when he assures you of having the desired results after 48 hours. He can help you too if you are willing to give him the chance to do so. email him now via: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or text him on WhatsApp him on +2348133261196
