We’re all in favour of ditching the UK when winter hits and making a runner for sunnier climes. Wondering where’s hot in November? We’ve rustled up a list of places where you can top that tan up!

You’re welcome.

Where’s hot in November?

Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates

With temps still hitting the 30s in November, it’s hard to find better weather to escape to than that of Ras al Khaimah, RAK to the locals.

The most northerly emirate in the United Arab Emirates, RAK is home to the Khatt Springs, a little oasis in this arid area of the world, and several crumbling old forts, such as the 16th-century hilltop Dhayah Fort. The rugged Hajar Mountains, where hiking is possible, provide the scenic backdrop.

For local food, try Al Sahari, where you can dine on kebabs and fried seafood – men sit on the right-hand side of the restaurant, women and families on the left. In RAK Popular Café, which overlooks the lagoon, the locals play backgammon and smoke sheesha throughout the evening.

Queensland, Australia

The climate of Queensland, the northeastern ‘Sunshine State’ of Australia, varies from the north to the south. In the south, November is when the weather is at its hottest and sunniest, reaching highs of 31ºC, whilst the north remains a tad cooler.

Brisbane is the entry point for southern Queensland. Chill in the parklands on the South Bank or head to one of the many cool cafés, bars or restaurants, such as the Gunshop Café (which used to be – you guessed it – a gun shop) or George’s Seafood for some Moreton Bay rock oysters and fresh mud crabs.

Further out is the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary for that all-important koala snap and the beaches of the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world, makes a fun weekend getaway, and November is the last chance to spot humpback whales breaching in nearby Hervey Bay.

Canary Islands

Where's hot in November? Playa de Las Cameras in Gran Canaria.

Within easy reach of the UK, the Canary Islands are the perfect winter sun destination. The island of Tenerife enjoys eight hours of sunshine a day in November.

The obvious attractions are the beaches. Try Playa de las Canteras on Gran Caneria – one of the most beautiful beaches in the world – for sunbathing, snorkelling or cycling, or the family-friendly La Concha beach on Fuerteventura.

Tenerife’s Fiesta de San Andres is celebrated on 29th November, which involves sledding in the streets and children running through the towns dragging strings of soft drink cans, creating quite a din! While watching the celebrations, you can snack on roasted chestnuts and sip the local vino del pais.

What’s the average temperature in the Canary Islands in November?

The average temperature in the Canary Islands in November is around 21°.

Mauritius 

November is the official start of summer in Mauritius and a great time to visit, with a minimum of six hours of sunshine a day.

From November, you can go diving around the northern islands and at Trou aux Biches or around the west coast near Flic-en-Flac. Trou aux Biches is also a great swimming beach.

In the colonial-style capital Port Louis, you can visit the Natural History Museum and see one of the rarest stamps in the world at the Blue Penny Museum. If you fancy something a little more fast-paced, take an adrenaline-fuelled quad bike tour into the Moka Mountains.

Bali, Indonesia

Where's hot in November? A rice paddy in Ubud in Bali, Indonesia, sunlight falling through the trees.

Offering epic surfing, sleek bars and restaurants, and a laidback beach scene, Bali is tropically hot all year round, still hitting the 30s in November, which is just before the island’s rainy season.

Seminyak is where the best restaurants and bars can be found, such as super-cool Sardine, which is set by a paddy field and feels a world away from the bustle of the town. Jimbaran beach is one of the best beaches on the island, with gentle surf for bodyboarding or just splashing around.

In the centre of the island, charming Ubud is a popular town from which to discover Bali’s stunning rice paddies and numerous temples.

What’s the average temperature in Bali in November?

The average temperature in Bali in November is around 28°, with highs of 32°.
