Thursday, December 22, 2022 @ 2:53 PM


Online travel agent, loveholidays, looked for the sunniest European destinations. Where’s the best destination for Brits to escape the UK winter?

The best winter sun destinations are:

1. Almeria, Spain
2. Las Palmas, Spain
3. Larnaca, Cyprus
4. Cadiz, Spain
5. Seville, Spain
6. Valletta, Malta
7. Valencia, Spain
8. Faro, Portugal
9. Barcelona, Spain
10. Marseille, France


Almeria, in sunny Spanish Andalucia, was ranked the brightest city for a break in the winter sun.

The beautiful destination has an average of six hours and 18 minutes of sunshine between December and February.

Almeria’s top attraction is the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata, Andalucia’s largest protected coastal area.



A visitor wrote on Tripadvisor: “We really enjoyed Cabo de Gata and went to Playa de Los Genoveses. The whole area was very unspoilt.”

Another said: “The views in this park are amazing. The seas, the mountains and especially the pine smell, make it worth a trip.”

Tourists can also visit the Alcazaba of Almeria, a fortified complex built in the time of the Moors.

A tourist wrote on Tripadvisor: “This is a magical place with incredible views. Well worth a visit- and we’ll come back!”

Almeria can enjoy highs of 16 degrees in January with the temperature rarely dropping below nine degrees.
