Imagine long stretches of uninterrupted sunshine, lazy afternoons on the beach and more fresh air than you could ever need. But this is more than just your next vacation – it’s your new home, in a place where summer never really ends.
This list of the world’s sunniest locations to live, compiled by Pakistan’s best property portal Lamudi.pk, reveals four of the best countries offering near-daily sunshine and warm temperatures. Whether you are looking to retire or just escape the winter, these are some of the top locations to cultivate that relaxed holiday feeling, year-round.
Who wouldn’t want to buy a vacation home on the beaches of Boracay Island, one of the most relaxing places in the world? Major business centers such as Cebu also offer plenty for sun-seekers, with the city located just minutes from diving spots, white sandy beaches and areas to swim with whale sharks. The Philippines’ tropical climate means it is subject to high temperatures and humidity year-round. Temperatures in the capital Manila, for example, average 25-30 degrees, with about 6.5 hours of sunshine per day.
This island off the coast of southeast Africa is a haven for sun-seekers and nature lovers alike. Madagascar offers 5000km of coastline and more than 250 islands nestled in the Indian Ocean. It is also home to a unique array of wildlife and plants, many of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The country’s climate is changeable, offering both a rainy and dry season. If you are chasing the sun, avoid the east coast which, with its sub-equatorial climate, is subject to the heaviest rainfall.
Escape the busy capital Jakarta and head to the beaches of Bali, one of the thousands of islands in the Indonesia archipelago. With its mix of rugged mountains and sandy beaches, Bali has more than earned its nickname – the Island of the Gods. The climate is consistently warm and humid, with both hot and dry seasons, meaning April to September is the best time to visit for maximum sunshine.
With its idyllic sandy beaches and a flourishing property market, Mauritius has recently become one of Africa’s go-to destinations for real estate investors. It is no wonder people want to live in this dream destination: the island enjoys temperatures of 20 to 26 degrees in winter, while summer is warmer still with temperatures hitting above 30 degrees. Its year-round summer-like climate is partially due to the fact that Mauritius is close to the Tropic of Capricorn, meaning the sun shines directly overhead.
