Where should you go in January?

January is the best time for a classic winter sun getaway in some of the world’s most exciting places, where you can expect turquoise waters, white-sand beaches and endless sunshine. If you’re looking for a relaxing haven of sea, sand and soaring temperatures, then Barbados, St Lucia and Antigua tick all the boxes. Elsewhere in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Cuba combine colourful cities and vibrant cultures with sleek beach resorts. Meanwhile, Cancun in Mexico balances historical ruins and beautiful beaches with its world-famous nightlife. If you want to go somewhere exotic, January is a great time to see the sights of Southeast Asia – from the soaring skyscrapers of Singapore, to the tranquil islands of Thailand, to the temples of Bali. Or, for a holiday for two, why not book a January break to the romantic Maldives?

Hot Destinations in January

The Caribbean

The Caribbean is a classic winter sun destination. In January, Barbados enjoys average temperatures of 28-29 degrees Celsius – perfect for working your way along the 92 kilometres of blonde beaches. Secluded Antigua is a little cooler, with an average January temperature of 26 degrees. This tiny island packs plenty into its borders, with jaw-dropping white sands, villages bursting with colour, and bright bars serving rum punch. St Lucia, meanwhile, offers all sorts of activities – from amazing snorkelling to driving through a volcano – which you can enjoy in the balmy temperature of 27 degrees. Cuba offers similar temperatures, along with powdery beaches, lively salsa bars, and pastel-coloured Havana. Or you could turn up the heat in the Dominican Republic – expect a daytime temperature of around 29 degrees – which boasts caramel-coloured beaches, stunning mountains and rich jungles.

Southeast Asia

With pristine islands and some of the world’s most dynamic cities, Southeast Asia has plenty to offer in January. A beloved winter sun destination, the Maldives has an average temperature of 27 degrees in January, complementing its glowing white-sand beaches and warm turquoise waters. Or, for rugged beauty, head to Thailand. Koh Samui has tranquil bays, fantastic snorkelling and a vibrant food scene, as well as 29-degree heat, while slightly cooler Phuket offers palm-fringed beaches and green-clad limestone cliffs. Prefer cities to beaches? Book a holiday to Singapore, where 26-degree days are punctuated by occasional monsoon rains – a great excuse for seeking sanctuary in a temple or Michelin-starred restaurant. In Malaysia, meanwhile, you can discover untouched rainforest and a microcosm of Asia’s diverse culture. Or, for toasty temperatures over 30 degrees, head further south to the Indonesian island of Bali.

Central America

Central America is another great option for winter sun in January, combining a tropical climate with a laidback lifestyle. Mexico’s coastal resort of Cancun, for example, is famous for its nightlife – but is also home to picturesque beaches and fascinating Mayan ruins. And, in January, the mercury hovers around 28 degrees Celsius. Alternatively, book a holiday to exotic Costa Rica, where you can spy toucans, sloths and hummingbirds. January is also a good time to visit Puerto Rico. With days averaging a pleasant 25 degrees, this island is a great choice for travellers seeking slightly cooler temperatures. You can relax on unspoilt beaches and experience a unique way of life, influenced by both American and Spanish cultures. Plus, you’ll be there for San Sebastian Street Festival. This January carnival celebrates all things Puerto Rican – the perfect way to wipe out those post-Christmas blues.
