The Algarve, Portugal

If you love to let your hair down, Ibiza is a brilliant holiday. Part of the Balearic Islands, Ibiza is well known for its pool parties and beach bars, but don't be fooled that that's all there is. You'll also find great family friendly resorts, as well as some quieter, hidden beaches dotted around the island too.
For year round sunshine, Lanzarote in the Canary Islands is a very good option. Hot in summer and still fairly warm for most of the winter (and definitely warmer than the UK), like the other islands of Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Gran Canaria, Lanzarote has great hotels and resorts, beautiful beaches and plenty to see and do if you want to escape the confines of your hotel and pool.
Malta is a really good sun and city break destination. Although it does get a little cooler in the winter between October and April, the sun still shines a lot and you can combine spending time relaxing by the pool with a trip into the historic streets of Valletta.
Within The UK
There are direct flights to both Belfast and the Isle of Man, allowing you to enjoy a short escape without having to leave the country. You can also fly to Jersey in the Channel Islands to enjoy a bit more of the warmer UK weather.
