Take a break to catch the sun



WE’RE all eager to spread our wings after a stayat-home year – and TUI has a scorching selection of sun-soaked holidays so we can celebrate our freedom and the world opening up once again with a well-deserved escape.

TUI experts are here to inspire you with fabulous destinatio­ns a-plenty to enjoy later in the year. Summer hotspots such as Greece, the Canary Islands, Malta and – new this year – Gibraltar, are also perfect for your autumn sun break. Schools are back, meaning TUI’s hand-picked holiday destinatio­ns are often quieter and less crowded, but temperatur­es at this time of year are warm and comfortabl­e.

Just off the coast of Morocco, the Canaries have year-round sunshine and a dramatic, volcanic landscape. And in Tenerife, the largest of the islands, temperatur­es only dip a couple of degrees in early autumn.

Postcard-perfect Greek islands offer beautiful beaches, intriguing ancient history and charming white-washed villages. The east coast of Rhodes is almost uninterrup­ted sand, and capital Lindos even has its own acropolis. Crete boasts 650 miles of coastline, while Corfu’s verdant scenery garnered its nickname, “The Emerald Isle”.

Malta, with its exciting, rugged coast, has history so rich it’s like visiting an open-air museum.

Portugal enjoys 300 days of sunshine a year, and Madeira offers fantastic walks and deserted beaches. Lisbon city breaks are also now on sale.

Jersey, new for TUI this year, oozes French flair with British influences, and historic capital St Helier is a destinatio­n for artisan restaurant­s.

In November and December, the TUI winter flying programme transports you to paradises further afield, including firm favourites Mexico and Egypt, and luxurious Caribbean destinatio­ns such as St Lucia – a real-life treasure island with volcanic peaks and lush rainforest. New for TUI from November is Africa’s “smiling coast”, The Gambia, where you’ll find a warm welcome, crowd-free beaches and exotic wildlife. Or you could opt for a cooler TUI city break. Fly to iconic New York or the northernmo­st capital, Reykjavik in Iceland. TUI also has holidays to get you in the Christmas spirit, such as ski breaks, Lapland day trips and Christmas-themed river cruises. But wherever you fancy going, after such a long wait, now is the perfect time to book that dream holiday.
