TUI Winter Sun Weather Report

If you’re looking to escape the Irish weather for a sunnier, hotter climate, why not take a look at some of the hottest 2019/2020 destinations you can head to?

Winter sun can have a positive effect on many aspects of your life. The Vitamin D we get from sunshine helps to slow the ageing process and improves our mood. The winter sunshine will also encourage your body clock to function properly and you’ll be able to rest easier. Those are the benefits, and here are a few places to go and soak up some winter sunshine while everyone else will be putting on their hats, scarves and gloves back home, and the kind of whether you can expect during your stay.


Tenerife is well known as a winter sun destination and there are many good deals on breaks at this time of year. The average temperature on the island is around 16°C with visitors able to spend a pleasant few hours on the beach each day. Beaches such as Las Teresitas and Playa Martinez still attract sun-worshippers in the middle of December.

Gran Canaria

Why not chase the winter blues away by spending Christmas in Gran Canaria? Gran Canaria tends to be slightly warmer than Tenerife in December with average temperatures at around 18°C. The Atlantic is quite cool in the winter, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay away from the sea: you can still explore the underwater world of the Canary Islands on a guided submarine adventure!


Another popular location in the Canaries, Lanzarote is absolutely the kind of place you can wear shorts in the wintertime! December temperatures can soar as high as 27°C and will remain pleasantly warm. You might experience a little rain shower if you travel in December, but it’s unlikely that this will last too long. In fact, given the heat, you may even welcome a few drops of rain!
