This time of year can often be a little gloomy, and while we’re lucky that we’ve got the holidays to look forward to, the months that precede it can feel a little drab and dreary. We’ve found that the best way to beat that winter fug is by giving yourself something exciting to look forward to, and what could lift those spirits more than a future beach holiday? We have some fantastic offers to see you into the New Year and help bat away those winter blues:

Terrific Tenerife

See in the spring with a fantastic All Inclusive deal to Tenerife in the months of March, April or May. The Canary Isles benefit from excellent weather throughout the year, and for something totally unique you could plan your holiday around the island’s enthralling Semana Santa celebrations. Departing from either Gatwick, Heathrow or Manchester you’ll be staying in the 3* Alborada Beach Club on Costa Silencio for four nights. The hotel sits close to the beach and has an excellent evening entertainment programme, with shows for adults and children alike. With your food, drink and entertainment all included in the excellent price, which starts at just £219, there’s no need to leave the complex. However if you do, you’ll find the stunning volcanic beach of La Galletas just a ten-minute stroll away.

Cool Cape Verde

You don’t need to wait too long to leave for this fantastic holiday. We have a cancellation to Cape Verde that we’re hoping someone can make use off, and if you can it’s yours for a bargainous £450. Staying in the swish 5* Hotel Riu Touareg in sunny Boa Vista, you’ll be slap-bang on the beach, but also benefit from being able to make use of the hotel’s five swimming pools. These pools are amongst an excellent range of facilities that also include a spa and wellness centre, hammam, Jacuzzi, aromatherapy, windsurfing, and introductory scuba diving lesson. The only catch? You need to be free to leave on the 4th December from Manchester Airport to benefit from these seven days of luxury.

Brilliant Benidorm

There’s a reason why Benidorm is one of our most popular destinations. It’s a real home-away-from-home for most Brits who prefer their evening entertainment followed with a good fry-up the following morning. With the resort’s hotel-based entertainment running throughout the year, there’s always a good time to visit Benidorm and enjoy one of the infamous cabaret shows or warble away at a karaoke night. We have some fantastic offers for those who want to jet away during the cold winter months, with five nights All Inclusive starting at just £229. That’s a huge 55% off the usual price for this time of year. You’ll be flying from Gatwick, Heathrow or Manchester and staying at the 4* Marconfort Suites, which boasts its own Indian restaurant and is just a ten-minute walk from Levante beach.

Marvellous Malta

From January through to April, you can stay at an award-winning hotel in Malta for four nights from just £209. The 4* Seabank Hotel sits on Malta’s sandiest beach and offers stunning views into the surrounding village of Mellieha. It boasts the accolade of TripAdvisor Traveller Choice Winner in 2013, a testament to the outstanding service that past guests said they’d received. With a hydrotherapy pool, heated atrium indoor pool, Jacuzzi, massage parlour and full entertainment programme, guests will find plenty to do inside the hotel, while in the nearby area water sports, horse riding, cycling and hiking can all be arranged. Departures are from a range of London and northern airports.
