Going on holidays to the sun
Much of your choice of sun kissed holiday destinations depends on how far you want to travel. Some of the best year-round sunshine is in exotic and far off lands, requiring flying times in double digits and layovers mid-route.
There are other options closer to home that still provide all that you need.
Sun holidays: Where to go and spend your holidays?
If you need any justification for booking a holiday in the sun, think of your bones! The warmth of the sun is vital for producing Vitamin D which supports bone density and general good health. Apart from boosting vital levels of “the sunshine vitamin”, a holiday in the sun can lift your spirits and energy levels.
Parts of the Mediterranean, the Caribbean islands and destinations fringing the Indian Ocean all have superb resorts and quiet luxury hotels to enjoy the health benefits of the sun.
For example, to restore your equilibrium and thoroughly refresh yourself, we recommend the stunning views and tranquil setting of Sun Rocks, in Santorini, Greece.
Or, on your healthy, sun drenched holiday, take a romantic break and do your body good at the same time with a stay at the Vitamin Sea and Sun Resort 4* Hotel in Hersonissos, Greece.

The length of time you stay on sun holidays depends on personal preference and the sort of activities you want to include.

A great example is a holiday in the dazzlingly beautiful country of Sri Lanka. We recommend that you combine handpicked accommodation with the ultimate in wildlife adventures with our unforgettable private Tour of Sri Lanka with Maldives Beach Stay.

In fact, sun holidays tend to be found in some of the more incredible beautiful countries on the planet. Though skiing holidays and other option have their own merits, there really is something magical about fronds of sunlight dancing in lush green forests and jungles.
