January in Tenerife
One of Tenerife's biggest nights of the year is 5th January, when you'll be able to catch the evening procession of the Three Kings in all the major towns. It's warm enough through the winter to head to the beach, and at this time of year you might catch sight of the famous "El Bravo", a giant super wave which has been known to hit the coast near Punta Brava. This freak of nature only occurs in certain parts of the world and attracts daredevil surfers.Find out more Or how about Fuerteventura?
January in Fuerteventura
This island in the Canaries has been designated a Biosphere reserve by UNESCO, and January's an excellent time of year to find out why. Head out on a boat to see sperm whales, dolphins and turtles, or take advantage of the cooler weather and hike along the 11km long sand dune at the National Park, south of Corralejo. Windsurfing is the sport of choice in Fuerteventura, but if you want to lay your towel down instead, you'll have 50km of sandy beaches to do it on.Find out more Or how about Koh Chang?
January in Koh Chang
Koh Chang means "Elephant Island" in Thai, and trekking through the rainforest on one of these huge animals is a brilliant way to spend a day. With it being the dry season, the waterfalls might not be quite as spectacular, but the short trek to Klong Plu is still well worth it. Visit Bang Bao, a fishing village on stilts, if you want to snorkel the coral reefs or hire your own boat. Alternatively, Had Sai Khao (White Sands Beach) is the biggest stretch of sand on the island, and is packed with restaurants and bars.Find out more Or how about somewhere else?
