10 Winter Beach Deals to Warm Your Winter

Miami Beach: The warm sun, bright art deco colors and hot nightlife are calling you to Miami Beach, and the Miami Beach Resort offers some hot deals for when you get there, starting at just $99 per night. The hotel is right on the beach and within 2.5 miles of South Beach shopping and three miles of downtown Miami. A three-night stay nets you $75 in hotel credits, which can be used for other hotel amenities; a four-night stay gets you $100 in hotel credits.

Santa Maria, the Azores: If you would like a European-style vacation without going all the way to Europe, you might look into Santa Maria Island in the Azores, about a third of the way from New England to Europe. As the southernmost island in the group. Santa Maria's temperature rarely dips to below 60 degrees, which might make it just a little chilly for lounging on the beach, but the charming villages reminiscent of those in Italy and Greece might make up for it. The deal is too good to pass up: $1,294, which includes airfare from Boston and a six-night stay at the Hotel Colombo.

Turks & Caicos Islands: Sitting on Grace Bay Beach drinking rum or just lounging in the sun and reading a book sounds like paradise for the winter-bound looking for a getaway. There are plenty to things to do if you won't want to sit by the beach or the pool, including many water and historical tours. For $280 per night (a 20% discount) from Jan. 7-Feb. 9 at the Villa del Mar, you will also get poolside breakfast and beachside service.

Cambria, Calif: There are things to do on a beach vacation other than sitting in the sand and sun, such as finding great spots for spotting wildlife. The Pelican Inn and Suites offers a "Seal Deal" for late winter and early spring, giving visitors a chance to see elephant seals and gray whales. The inn is also near wineries and shopping. Rates start at $100 per night (20% off).

Los Cobos, Mexico: If you've always dreamed of visiting Los Cobos, the sun is warm and the deals are hot this winter. The Westin Resort and Spa, which overlooks the Sea of Cortez, offers a gym, pools, tennis courts and a nine-hole seaside putting green. All-inclusive packages this winter start at $329 per night, or you can book the Sunsational Savings package for as low as $136 a night with a three0night stay, which includes a $200 hotel credit for savings on meals at the hotel.

St. Croix: If you're planning a trip to the U.S. Virgin Islands, hotels on St. Croix are offering a variety of packages. Hotel Caravelle, which sits on the water's edge in historic Christiansted, advertises all of the advantages of a Caribbean resort without the crowds. The Fantastic Flight promotion offers guests a $300 flight credit with the sixth night at the hotel free and a $20 match play certificate for the casino.
