UK deep freeze: 4 stunning beach holiday escapes

Brits are increasingly turning to sunny holidays to cheer themselves up as winter refuses to release its hold on the country, and who can blame them!

According to many major travel companies, bookings are significantly up compared with figures for last year, as a summer of rain in 2012 and a long, cold winter begin to dampen consumers' spirits in the UK. If you're feeling that way and fancy a warm, sunny getaway in the coming weeks, here's a quick overview of some of the best destinations for sunshine and warmth ...

Thailand


A great choice for warmth and sunshine matched by the warmth of the welcome provided by locals, flying to Thailand offers average March temperatures of 29ºC and the almost unimaginable prospect of nine hours sunshine every day! Food and drink is great value once you get there and the beaches really do live up to their reputation.

 

Florida




Not quite as hot as Thailand but still warm at 25ºC average for March, with nine hours sunshine on average every day, Florida is a great option for sun-starved brits. Theme parks galore, beaches to die for, a huge variety of accommodation options, amazing golf courses, wildlife, food... the Sunshine State has to be on your shortlist this Easter.

 

Dubai




If you like it warm rather than hot, Dubai comes in a little cooler again, at an average of 23ºC and 8.5 hours sunshine per day right now. Whether you stick to the beach or try something more adventurous like dune bashing in a 4x4 or windsailing, Dubai is a great option.

 

Caribbean




Whether you opt for the Bahamas, Barbados, Cuba, Dominican Republic, or one of the other Caribbean sunspots, this is region perfect for Brits looking for a beach holiday in the next few months. Not too hot, currently at 25ºCaverage temperature and with peaks of up to around 30ºC, the Caribbean's relaxed pace of life, dramatic scenery, glistening beaches and enticing cocktail menus could just be the perfect tonic.

Whether you get away this weekend, plan the trip you need or just surround yourself with your favourite people to keep you feeling bright and cheerful, we wish you a very happy Easter!
