In January, the sun-kissed Canariesare top of our list of recommendations. With warm weather and light sea breezes it’s idyllic at this time of year and we have selected a few hotels where you can escape the crowds and find some peace for you and your family.

For those who wish to ensure a really hot holiday location you must go further afield though. Read on to discover what other family-friendly resorts have made it onto our list of the best beach holidays for January.

Where to go on holiday in Janaury

Nothing beats escaping on holiday just as everyone else is going back to work! I love extending the festive period just that little bit longer, by packing my swimsuit and heading off somewhere hot and sunny. Not only is it relaxing, but it’s a healthy way to revive your body after months of dark days.

For some January sunshine, consider Tenerifeor Lanzarote, with miles of golden sands and tropical gardens to explore.
