1. Lanzarote, Spain
As Lanzarote boasts year-round sunshine, you’ll never be disappointed when taking a trip to this beautiful island, which is located off the west coast of Africa and is heated by the Sahara Desert. However, you don’t need to worry about overheating, as the gentle breeze will help to cool you down when lounging on a beach, relaxing by the pool or walking along the atmospheric strip.

There are a million and one reasons to visit India – and one of them is the warm climate. While the climate differs from coast to coast due to the nation’s large size, you can expect high temperatures when visiting India at any point in the year.
While summer might only last from March to May, temperatures very rarely drop below 20°C (68°F) throughout the year. If, however, you’re looking for a stronger average temperature, make your way up north to the capital of New Delhi, which reaches an average annual temperature of 23°C (73.4°F) to 25°C (77°F).
So, there is no bad time to jump on a flight to experience India’s world-famous landmarks, delicious cuisine, friendly locals, and attractive beaches.
