shorthaul from Europe - canaries or Egypt.

longhaul - all the above, although it is a very long way to go to sit on a beach. Also only one side of Malaysia won't be in monsoon, unhelpfully I can't remember which. And you would want southern Australia, not the north.

The Canaries aren't properly hot in December, are they? We went in November and although it was warm(ish) during the day it was downright chilly at night, and the sea was FREEZING, although it probably always is.

If you fancy the Red Sea that also includes Israel, therefore Eilat

The Gambia if you are an older lady looking for lurve

Vietnam (Phu Quoc or Mui Ne, Nha Trang)
Many places in Thailand (Hua Hin, Koh Samui/Phangan/Tao Koh Lanta, Koh Phi Phi, etc)

Canaries fairly similar year round. Never tropical - but that also means no tropical diseases or insect risk.

but if you want bath-temperature sea, they aren't the place.

Sidge mentioned upthread South Africa - although the weather will be hot, the sea is FREEZING!

The sea's definitely freezing in Cape Town (Atlantic) but won't be in Durban - Indian Ocean grin

ruby1234 the OP asked about BEACH holidays, she didn't say anything about wanting to actually go in the water grin

I wouldn't really call Cape Town a beach holiday. There are beaches but it's not really week on the sun lounger holiday territory, is it?
