No one needs convincing that a doze of bright sunshine doesn’t just help to perk you up on a gloomy day – it’s actually pretty good for you. A winter sun retreat is just the ticket.
In fact, in winter it might be very necessary for your wellbeing. If you’re starting to feel sluggish, low, and struggling to focus, this may be down to the fact that UK winter sunshine just isn’t packed with all that much Vitamin D goodness.
Our answer? Swap the winter blues for the blue waters of our winter sun retreats in Cuba, India, Sri Lanka and the Canaries. You’ll feel the difference.
