10 best winter sun holiday destinations for 2021

2/10  Seychelles

Why go? Visit the Seychelles for winter sun and average temperatures of  28°C, quite a few of the world's most photographed beaches, giant Aldabra Turtles and heavenly Vallée de Mai - said to be the original Garden of Eden. Kids will love island hopping, jungle ziplining, cycling instead of driving and some of the most spellbinding pirate history in the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles is also famous for magnificent walking trails and it's an iconic winter holiday destination for diving and snorkelling.

Where to go?

  • Mahé for jungle adventures in Morne Seychelles National Park.
  • Praslin for World Heritage Vallée de Mai.
  • La Digue for Anse Source d'Argent Beach.
  • Silhouette for its extraordinary cloud forest and giant turtles.
  • Cousin Island Reserve for over 300,000 nesting birds and earth's largest lizard population.

Top tip: don't miss a ride in a colourful ox-drawn wagon on La Digue.
