We recommend The Gambia for a cheap holiday in January. This charming, low-cost beach destination on the West African coast has improved greatly in recent years in terms of its hotels. Check out the latest deals.
Another good-value option is the Cape Verde islands, a diverse archipelago between West Africa and South America, but easily accessible by direct flights from the UK (in less than 6 hours). With temperatures of 24C in January, superb beaches and excellent choice of hotels, this is a great up-and-coming destination. View the latest special offers.
Bali is a great destination for winter sun, with stunning beaches and fascinating colourful local culture. Thailand is a perennial favourite and remains great value, although you should avoid the east coast in January, the rainy season. Phuket is better.
If you’re ready to splash out on a tropical island, we could think of nowhere nicer to be in January than a spa hotel in Mauritius, an overwater villa in the Maldives or gorgeous a beach hideaway in the Seychelles.
