Escape to Sandals for Some Winter Sun

It's never too soon to start thinking about where you would like to be jetting off too for some winter sun later this year. Thankfully for all, the Caribbean sun shines all year long and temperatures are always toasty warm, making this the perfect destination for some winter sun. If you want to leave behind grey skies and blustery days in favour of sun-soaked beaches, then you’re going to want to make Sandals the destination for your next winter break. But which island is right for you?

Saint Lucia
A breathtakingly beautiful island, for those looking to be wowed by mountains, lush forests, and pristine white sand beaches this winter instead of bare trees and icy roads, Saint Lucia is the perfect pick. With three Sandals resorts perched in the most picturesque parts of the island, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy stunning views and beach days all holiday long.

As with all islands in the Caribbean, the climate in Saint Lucia is tropical and even in the winter months temperatures sit at around 27°C with plenty of sunshine to be expected.

Barbados is known for being a vibrant and lively destination, with warm locals who always make everyone feel welcome. So if you want to swap a night in front of the TV for an evening sipping cocktails while watching the sunset, opt for Barbados. With our newest Sandals resort also set to open this December in the beautiful St. Lawrence Gap, there’s even more reason to visit Barbados this winter.

Temperatures rarely dip below 26°C in the winter, usually sitting at around 28°C, and the sun continues to shine bright, meaning the sea water remains pleasantly warm for those keen to take a dip.

This serene island with its dreamy sunsets and lush landscapes is perfect for loved up couples seeking a laid-back romantic holiday. You’ll quickly forget the chill in the air back home as you lounge on Antigua’s sun-drenched beaches, stroll through the tropical gardens, and relax in your luxurious Love Nest Suite®.

Temperatures in Antigue average at 25°C in January – just right for those who want to top up their tan without overheating in the Caribbean sun.

Famed for its stunning scenery, friendly people and carefree way of life, you couldn’t feel further away from home with a trip to Jamaica. This tropical paradise offers an idyllic escape that you’ll never want to leave. Swap busy commutes for walks along the beach, your meal deal for 5-Star Global Gourmet Dining™ and wrapping up against the cold for donning your swimsuit and jumping in the pool.

Enjoy plenty of sunny days and average temperatures of 26°C on the coasts of Jamaica, perfect for making the most of the stunning Jamaican beaches!

Grenada promises everything you could want from your winter escape, ticking all the sun, sea, and sand boxes. The perfect location for those who just want to fly and flop, Sandals Grenada Resort & Spa is located just five minutes from the airport meaning less time travelling and more time chilling in your Tranquility Soaking Tub™.

Quite like the other Caribbean islands, Grenada rarely sees temperatures dip below 25°C in the winter with the potential for them to reach higher, and the most sunshine hours being seen in December.

With over 700 islands making up the Bahamas, this really is a destination that has something for everyone. Boasting the most beautiful white sand beaches, clearest turquoise waters, and two luxurious Sandals resorts to choose from, it’s hard to think what more you could want from your winter sun holiday.

The coolest of our Caribbean islands, the Bahamas is the perfect destination for those who want to enjoy the Caribbean without oppressively hot temperatures, with temperatures averaging around 22°C and peaking at 25°C.
