A couple of years ago we went to Caleta de Fuste in January which was absolutely bliss. The flight was about 4 hours and the transfer only 15 minutes! We stayed in an all inclusive complex close to the beach and it was a short walk to the harbour and a shopping centre. If Fuerteventura holidays is something you are thinking about I would definitely recommend looking at this resort as it was very family friendly, Lucas was 11 months at the time and there was plenty of activities for older ones too.
As well as Fuerteventura, the other Canary Islands are fab options as they all have sunshine throughout the Winter and they are within 4 and a half hours flight. When we were in school, we were lucky to been taken to Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Gran Canaria during the winter school holidays. There is everything you need from relaxing on the beach, watersports, children’s activities, shopping to carnivals. I remember watching a carnival whilst we were on one the islands and the colours, floats and music marching through streets were spectacular.
Morocco is also a safe bet for some Winter sun with temperatures still getting to 30 in October. November to February is usually between 19-23. I visited Marrakesh a few years ago which is one of the most thought of places along with Agadir for British holiday makers. However, not to be overlooked is Essaouira. A relaxed town but with plenty of things to do in Essaouira. Head to the beach for surfing, kite surfing, wind surfing, plus quad bike and camel rides!
The best time to visit New Zealand for the warm weather between 20 and 30 degrees is December to March. You can find everything from untamed wilderness to rich culture. Towering mountains, mist-cloaked fjords and golden beaches. Try out your astrophotography skills whilst star gazing as much of the country has no light pollution and is home to some of the most accessible sky observatories in the world.
My friend recently went to Cape Verde and her 2 year old had an amazing time. The flight is approximately 6 hours from the UK. Cape Verde has an abundance of white sandy beaches, children’s activities, turtle spotting, horse riding. It looks like an incredible place to learn about a new culture.
Although it isn’t as hot as Cape Verde or the Canaries, Portugal is one to be considered as the temperatures still reach to 22 in Autumn and 16 in Winter and it is less than 3 hours flight time. There are numerous activities designed for the little ones, both outdoors and indoors, in castles, museums, zoos, theme parks and aqua parks. Following the footprints of dinosaurs, watching dolphins and whales at sea or learning about the stars.
