2. KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
At the tip of Africa, covered in tropical vegetation with miles of premium beaches, lies coastal KwaZulu-Natal – a sun lover’s dream. Winter provides the best surfing conditions with minimal rainfall and the ocean is warm enough to swim in. Summer months are hot, humid and ideal for lazing around on impressive beachfront.
3. Canary Islands
Off the west coast of Africa lies a small collection of islands known as the Canary Islands. While the inland parts of the islands have quite a range of temperatures, the coastal regions are temperate and sunny all year round. The parts of the islands facing the Atlantic will be particularly warm whenever you choose to visit.
4. Loja, Ecuador
Located a few degrees south of the equator, Loja, Ecuador is blessed with blissful weather all year round. Because of its central location on the globe, the sun rises and sets here at pretty much the same time every day of the year. It’s also known as a very friendly place, probably because everyone gets to see the sun so often!
5. Goa, India
Up the west coast of India lies Goa, previously a Portuguese colony on the trade routes. While Goa does experience rainy weather during monsoon season, which lasts from the end of May to the beginning of October, the weather is always warm. If you don’t mind a little wet with your warm weather, then a visit to Goa will leave you feeling great. Just keep in mind that it’s best to travel outside of monsoon season for optimal warmth and sunshine.
6. Cyprus, Mediterranean
One of the many islands in the Mediterranean, Cyprus is home to a number of exceptional coastal destinations that stay warm all year long. Although the inland can experience snow in the mountains during winter, you’ll enjoy long, balmy days on the beach at the same time. Spring, summer and autumn months are the best time to visit with peak season lasting from June to September.
7. Central Valley, Costa Rica
Costa Rica’s Central Valley is a key destination for travellers seeking a pleasant escape during any period on the calendar. It’s renowned as one of the most stable places in the world as the country has no army, nature is greatly respected and the people are incredibly relaxed. Enjoy the warm weather in the rainforests, mountains, valleys or on the picture-perfect beaches.

Mexico is a treat for travellers seeking warm, sunny holidays at any given time. Along the Atlantic coastline, the Yucatán Peninsula is the stuff dreams are made of, particularly those that involve beaches and warm water.

There are beautiful fishing villages and rainforests to explore, each of which offer mild to warm weather in winter and staggering heat in the summertime.
11. Santa Barbara, USA
This charming coastal city has beautifully warm to hot weather year round with up to 30% humidity. It hardly ever rains either, making it a perfect destination for sun worshippers.

The inland city of Sao Paulo is known for some of the finest weather year-round, which heightens its levels on the popularity scales as Brazil’s most temperate city.
