If the dark nights and talks of an Arctic blast dominating the forecast and landing on our shores this week fills you with dread, have you thought about pressing the pause button on life on Blighty and booking a warming break in a climate that feels good to the skin?
 
With more cold months ahead of us, and Spring seeming out of touch, why not lounge on a tropical beach or feel the buzz of a vibrant city whilst the sun and vitamin D awakens your senses?
 
For those not wanting to travel far, winter sun is easily within your grasp - only a short flight away. Our jewel in the crown has to be The Canary Islands, not only is the weather a toasty 22°C, it is also well priced in November. Why not try Lanzarote or Tenerife, which both enjoy long days of sunshine.  Our other top picks include Egypt with temperatures soaring to 25°C or majestic Morocco where you can expect temperatures reaching 23°C.
 
For those looking to travel further afield to more tropical lands, now is the best time to visit, the hurricane season has passed but the tourist month of January is yet to come, making December a very appealing time of year to visit.
 
Head to Cuba if you are looking for culture and those all important Caribbean vibes, the temperature and hours of sunshine will not disappoint, whilst the country’s friendly and hospitable vibes welcome you with open arms on arrival. The same can be said for Mexico and Dominican Republic.
 
Looking to spice up your life, the Indian resort of Goa will offer you an abundance of warming rays with temperatures reaching a scorching 32°C
