Winter sun destinations: banish the cold with a trip to warmer climes, from Sri Lanka to the Sous Valley

The short, dark days of winter have well and truly arrived. But there’s no shortage of warm, exotic destinations to tempt you further south this season. Whether you want to take a shopping break amid the souks of Morocco or lounge on an Australian beach, there are deals and destinations to suit all winter sun persuasions.

Souk up the sun 

Average temperatures for Taroudant – in the Sous Valley of southern Morocco – sit comfortably in the 20s at this time of year. Better still, the short flight time of less than four hours from the UK to nearby Agadir means you won’t have to deal with jetlag. Known as the “Grandmother of Marrakech”, because it’s a smaller, more manageable version of the bigger, brasher city, Taroudant has an atmospheric medina encircled by ramparts. There are several souks, selling everything from leather handbags to rugs.

Real Holidays (020 7359 3938; realholidays.co.uk) offers five nights’ half-board at Dar Zitoune, a boutique 12-room riad with a spa, hammam and pool, from £530pp. The trip departs on 14 January, with easyJet flights from Gatwick to Agadir, and transfers.

Fly and flop

A sub-tropical climate, miles of golden beaches and upmarket resorts combine to make the Sunshine State a top choice for winter warmth. Appealing packages include Virgin Holidays’ (0844 573 0088; virginholidays.co.uk) £984pp flit to Fort Lauderdale, during the coastal city’s Taste Fort Lauderdale food festival, when celebrity chefs and restaurants host special events. Departing 24 February, the package includes four nights’ room only at the Pelican Grand Beach Hotel, plus Virgin flights from Heathrow to Miami and car hire.
