5 Getaway Ideas to Beat the Winter Blues


Winter is a favourite time of the year for some, but for others, it is the worst. If you fall into the latter, think about going away to escape the cold and catch some sunshine. The good thing is that just because it’s winter where you are, that doesn’t mean that it’s winter everywhere in the world. There is an endless list of places where the sun is shining that you can find yourself at whether it means lounging on the beach or daydreaming under a waterfall. For those in need of getaway ideas, here are a few suggestions.

  1. Maldives

If your idea of a winter getaway consists of tall palm trees and crashing waves, then head out to the dreamy Maldives for your winter getaway. If you’ve never been before, the Maldives is a serene island that’s located south-west of Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean. Surrounded by a turquoise lagoon, it’s the perfect escape for winter blues. The only downside is that it can be a little pricey, but you should get luxury in return. In terms of things to do, you can go diving, snorkelling or dolphin spotting as well as enjoy fresh dishes.

  1. Las Vegas

For those looking for fun and winter sun, Las Vegas is another great destination to venture off to this winter. It is known for its outstanding nightclubs as well as buzzing nightlife, so you’d definitely be in for a great time. When going, ensure you bring your energy and leave your worries behind. If you’re having flu symptoms while you’re there, make a note that you can get mobile IV fluids for flu to help get you back in shape and ready to party.

  1. Mexico

If you’ve ever been to Mexico before, then you know that it’s a place worth visiting more than once. In Mexico, aside from finding the sunshine you’ve been longing for, you’re also able to experience their rich and colourful culture which consists of music, food, and history. Some things to do in Mexico are ride the ‘El Chepe’ into Copper Canyon, experience the art culture in Mexico City or feel the Mayan Magic by going to visit Yucatan which is an important part of their history.

  1. Thai Islands

Asia is another beautiful continent that you can escape to during the winter. The best times of the year to go are November to March, meaning it’s ideal for a winter vacation. There are dozens of white sand beaches to choose from and they stretch for miles at a time. It’s ideal if you want to relax as well as enjoy the peace and serenity of nature.

  1. Cyprus

Another winter destination that happens to be close by is vibrant Cyprus. They get sunshine all-year-round and during March, their flowers begin to bloom. Some reasons you should visit Cyprus include the lush beaches you can relax on, as well as going to see historic sites like The Tombs of the Kings. For the wine lovers out there, you should participate in a wine tour, as wine is popular in Cyprus.
