Child-friendly winter sun destinations
It's that time of year when people dream about getting some winter sun. It usually happens while they are de-icing the car in the morning, their fingers going numb from the cold. The thought of a winter sun holiday has not crossed your mind? Imagine, that just a few hours away on a plane there is T-shirt and shorts weather is just too tempting!
1. Canary Islands
You don't have to do a long-haul flight in the winter to get to a warm destination. The Canary Islands are a popular holiday spot all year round as the weather is deliciously warm at any time - and a great temperature if you have young children. In the winter you can expect temperatures in the low 20s, equivalent to a typical summer's day in Ireland. All the islands are geared up for families.
Let's start with the miles of wide sandy beaches and the peaceful resorts that don't tend to attract stag parties. Add to that the warm sea breeze coming over from Africa, which gives this beautiful island a lovely year-round climate, and you have a great destination for families. The flight from Dublin to Fuerteventura takes just over four hours, which is great for young children as by the time they start to get too restless it is time to get off the plane.
Fuerteventura is another fantastic child friendly winter sun holiday. It has a breathtaking volcanic landscape, and stunning sand dunes can be found at Corralejo along with local markets and relaxing bars. Corralejo is a fantastic place to base yourself, with its calm waters that are perfect for families. There are some great places to eat and drink - take Waikiki bar, which is on the beach and serves great food and drinks. This is a place you will return to again and again on your holiday, as it is not only great food at a great price, but the view out to sea from your table is stunning. In the evenings enjoy dinner in one of the restaurants around the main square, just a few minutes inland from the harbour. There you will be sat outside enjoying tapas, being entertained by musicians and artists. There are plenty of child-friendly hotels on the island, with swimming pools and a range of kids clubs. It's no wonder that year after year Fuerteventura proves to be a popular winter sun destination for families in Ireland.
