With autumn in full swing and UK temperatures beginning to plummet, now is the perfect time to start planning your winter getaway. With the great range of cheap holidays with Cosmos currently on offer, sun-seekers need not wait until 2013 for their next walk on the sands.
Ideal for a spot of winter sun, the Costa del Sol is cooler in the winter months but still keeps a temperate climate out of season, making it one of the most popular destinations with holidaymakers all year round. There are a variety of brilliant resorts to choose from, one of the most popular being Fuengirola, a large cosmopolitan town in the province of Malaga.
With over 8km of sandy beaches, it's ideal for sun-seekers who want to relax and work on their tan. With its blend of history and modernity, it's also a great place to explore Spanish culture, whether it's at the Museum of Contemporary Art or wandering around the historic centre.
Cosmos also have a fantastic selection of holidays to the Canary Islands, offering something for everyone, including families, groups and couples. Gran Canaria attracts around two million visitors each year, principally for its stunning beaches and a climate that rarely dips below 20 degrees C.
However, the island is also wonderfully diverse, offering breath-taking mountain ranges inland, as well as desert landscapes, lush green forests and the vibrant port town of Las Palmas. A day spent on a lounger at the resort can be followed by a day horse trekking or visiting museums, such is the amount on offer for visitors.
Equally, the Algarve in Portugal - with its vibrant nightlife, incredible scenery and historic towns dating back to the time of the Romans - is a destination capable of attracting all sorts of visitors. Praia de Rocha and Lagos are widely known as the places to go for a party atmosphere, with their streets often filled with young revellers, whereas Tavira is a favourite with visitors who want to escape to some peace and quiet for a day or two, relaxing by its beautiful river or exploring its cobbled streets.
With so many destinations on offer at such competitive prices, Cosmos is the place to go when looking for a great value beach holiday this winter. Visit Cosmos online for more details of their current deals on holidays to the best destinations around the globe.
