10 best winter sun holiday destinations for 2021

1/10  Morocco

Why go? Morocco is great for winter sun holidays. Average temperatures of 20°C are ideal for surfing and sunning on the Atlantic coast's long, sandy beaches. And inland, comfortably warm weather makes exploring Marrakesh much more fun with kids. Short flights from the UK are another reason to consider Morocco this winter.

Where to visit?

  • Taghazout for big Atlantic beaches and good surf schools.
  • Essaouira for the world famous citadel and historic souks.
  • Agadir for golden sands and luxury family resort hotels.
  • Marrakesh for the ancient medina, Atlas Mountains and Koutoubia Mosque.
  • Dakhla for vast dunes where the Sahara meets the Atlantic.

Top tip: kids will love the astonishing Jemaa el Fna night market in Marrakesh.

Flying time: Direct flights from UK to Morocco take from 3 hours,  40 minutes.
