If the idea of spending Christmas Day baking on a beautiful beach fills you with glee, then head to the Canary Islands for some serious winter warmth. Sitting in the Atlantic, off the coast of West Africa, the Canary Islands are the best place to head for guaranteed sunbathing weather in December. You’ve got plenty of option too, as each island offers a different atmosphere and selection of things to do. Treat yourself to Christmas luxury on Gran Canaria, get up close and personal with camels on Lanzarote, indulge in Tenerife’s budding foodie scene or relax on one of Fuerteventura’s famous white sand beaches. As the weather is so pleasant on all four islands, there’s always plenty to do outdoors. A visit to any of the islands will make you feel like you’ve jetted off on a summer holiday rather than a Christmas getaway.
