Suffering from a bout of January blues? Booking your next adventure could be the perfect remedy! The season of giving may be over but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to treat yourself. And what better way to welcome in the new year than by checking out these spectacular January flight deals?
Whether you fancy a bit of winter sun or want to soak up culture in a buzzing city, January is the perfect time to do so. Towns are at their most authentic, big-name attractions are much quieter and you can expect far fewer crowds – so it’s a win-win!
If you’re seeking a bit of sunshine in January, the year-round destination of Tenerife will be the perfect choice. Temperatures stay up in the mid-to-high teens, so it’s ideal for adventures and sightseeing. Mighty Mount Teide sits at its centre, so if you love all things outdoors, you’ll be blown away by this other-worldly landscape. Don’t miss out on a ride on the cable car which offers panoramic views on the way to Spain’s highest peak. And from mid-January, the annual Canary Island Music Festival takes over the iconic Tenerife Auditorium in Santa Cruz. This month-long spectacular showcases a huge variety of Spain’s musical talent along with performances from international artists.
Jet off to Alicante in January and you’ll get to immerse yourself in the Costa Blanca – Spain’s ‘White Coast’. With more than 200 kilometres of soft, sandy beaches lining the coastline, you’ll soon see why it earned this name! Traditional Spanish towns are waiting to be explored across the region or if you’d prefer to experience a buzzing city, Alicante should be at the top of your wish list. Nightlife hotspot, Benidorm, is also quieter in January but it gives you the opportunity to soak up a little of the culture in the Old Town rather than being swamped with partygoers.
Capital of the Algarve region, Faro gives you the best of both worlds. One day you could stroll the sands of some of the Algarve’s best beaches and the next, you could head into the city’s Old Town and explore hidden-away treasures. If day trips are on the agenda, you’ve got plenty of surrounding resorts to choose from. Vilamoura, known for its glitzy marina and top-rated golf courses, is only a 30-minute drive away while only 20 minutes away, you’ll find Estoi with its enchanting pink-hued palace.
Warm up in Lanzarote this January and experience a captivating Canary Isle. From Costa Teguise in the north to Playa Blanca in the south, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beach resorts. And with toasty temperatures throughout winter, the idea of a beach break in January becomes a reality. For active days out, why not venture to Timanfaya National Park and gaze in awe at the geysers shooting hot water from the warm volcanic soil?
In January, temperatures in the Costa Del Sol are still up in the mid-teens, so it’s much balmier than the UK – perfect for a new year escape! You’ll find some of Spain’s most popular resorts here, from Nerja to Marbella. In these quieter months, you’ll also get to experience a more relaxed pace of life – including those all-important siestas! While beach days could be an option, depending on how lucky you get with the weather, hunting down some history and culture is even easier in January. No crowds, smaller queues and cheaper prices!
Over on Cyprus’ west coast, Paphos is ideal for a post-Christmas break. On average, this beautiful island sees more than 300 days of sunshine each year, so you’re in with a pretty good chance of catching some rays. The coastline is dotted with Blue Flag beaches which provide the perfect setting to your days of sunbathing. And when it comes to cuisine, Cyprus pulls out all the stops. Think juicy kebabs, flavoursome platters of mezze and ultra-fresh seafood.
