4) The Maldives
Where better to take a winter break than the last paradise on Earth? The coral reefs and archipelagos in the Indian Ocean that form the Maldives really are a tropical paradise.

The Northern African country of Morocco is a favourite with British tourists during the winter season. A trip to the capital Marrakech will see you thrown into a bright and colourful culture filled with spicy aromas and the hustle and bustle of a busy city. If you’d rather head to the beach, opt for Essaouira which is home to some of the world’s best windsurfing spots.

Not all winter holidays have to be thousands of miles away from home – a five hour flight to Egypt could see you lying beside the pool soaking up the winter sun.
