Cyprus best tourist destination for Autumn, says

Dubai and the Caribbean are included in some of the deluxe destinations, which are among the most affordable places to find almost guaranteed sunshine during our bleak winter, research by has found.

Popular during summer and holding onto the season more than much of Europe, and at even more affordable prices than its high season, is Spain's Tenerife with flights at about £169 return in October.

Dubai is next on the list, great value at £333 to get there and back, but the city really comes into its own in November and December as the days get shorter and shorter in the northern hemisphere.

After Dubai comes sun-soaked southern USA havens including West Palm Beach in Florida and Palm Strings in California with prices at £464 and £519.

Dubai's year-round rays sees it to the top of the list for November and December, enticing tourists the cheapest return flights for a place expecting 26-plus degrees.

In November your next best bets for a winter tan are again in Florida, with Miami, West Palm Beach Beach and Orlando offering return flights for £481 and under.

Mexico's party town Cancun is also an affordable sun trap to fly to in November, as are the Caribbean twin island country of Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados's capital Bridgetown, Vieeux Fort in Saint Lucia, Georgetown in The Bahamas and Grenada.

Other top value options for that winter sun break include the rarely cheap Honoluluin Hawaii and Salvador in Brazil.

When Christmas comes around and pasty skin becomes the norm, Dubai is by far the most modest option for return flights with £268 return flights, although the figures don't factor in the cost of accommodation and entertainment once you're there.

India steps up to the plate big time at Christmas as well with trips to the hustle and bustle of Mumbai or Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala well worth considering at a cost of £360 and £442 respectively.

For a more subdued setting, the sun continues to shine in the old favourite Hawaii with cheap flights to Honolulu, Kailua Kona and Lihu all less than £610.
