If you’re still experiencing a cold snap that has long overstayed its welcome, you’re probably searching for the perfect sunny escape.

Even if you're not in a winter slump, 2018 is the time for new adventures and we’ve rounded up the 5 best holiday destinations for this year (plus the beachwear to match).

1. Valletta, Malta

Probably the hottest destination of 2018, Valletta, in Malta, has been named Europe’s 2018 capital of culture. Not only that, but it’s Baroque-style architecture and rich history have seen Valletta named a UNESCO world heritage site.

The perfect destination if you love to wander streets rich in culture and enjoy sophisticated meals by the water, all before heading back to relax on the balcony of your boutique style hotel.

Don’t expect to be swimming in the sea in Valletta, there aren’t any beaches in the city, so plenty of pool dipping and sun lounging instead - perfect for those of you who can’t stand the sand!

As such, your swimwear can truly reflect the elegant style of this destination, without having to worry about practicality, like these picks...

This two-toned scalloped trim swimsuit oozes class and style.

We love this more athletic, yet sophisticated bikini.

 

2. Seychelles

If a secluded island getaway sounds like your idea of heaven, then the Seychelles may be your 2018 holiday destination.

Found far off the east coast of Africa, the Seychelles is the perfect beach laden place to forget about all your troubles. Made up of 115 islands (many uninhabited) the allure of white sands are hard to resist.

These tropical islands are perfect for a holiday packed full of relaxation, whilst still exploring the natural beauty and wildlife they have to offer by diving or hiking. No wonder it’s one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world!

When we think of the Seychelles we think romance, warmth and fun. Therefore the swimwear you pack should reflect the island-life feel...

3. Perth, Australia

If you’ve always wanted to visit down under, then Perth might be your ideal starting destination. Located in Western Australia, Perth has come a long way over the last 20 years to become one of the most beautiful and sought-after Australian holiday destinations.

Separated from the hustle and bustle of the cities in the East of the country, Perth is a perfect blend of city-life and laid-back beach vibes.

If you enjoying wining and dining at fancy bars and restaurants at night, but relaxing at gorgeous coastal locations by day, Perth is the place for you.

It offers something for everyone - surfing and other watersports for the adrenaline junkies, and art galleries, parks and harbours for those who love to explore by foot.

The Aussie lifestyle conjures up images of bold, block colours and athletic vibes when it comes to choosing swimwear. Perfect for catching a tan, playing a game of beach volleyball or catching a wave, these picks are ready for whatever the Perth way of life may throw your way…

This bright swimsuit is the perfect match for the blue waters of Australia.

4. Casablanca, Morocco

Associated with the film with the same namesake, Casablanca isn't quite the same as the movie which was actually shot on a set in Hollywood. However, that doesn’t mean this exciting and exotic Moroccan destination, often overlooked in favour of Marrakech, is not one to visit.

Full of art-deco inspired architecture, galleries and museums, Casablanca is an art and culture lovers dream. Not only that, but it’s also a hot destination for foodies alike, with some of the best seafood as well as the fusion of French and Moroccan flavours.

If a little adventure is a must, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a surf culture in Casablanca. The beaches also offer the perfect respite from a hot day exploring the bustling city.

Casablanca is all about sophisticated romance. Muted colours and classic cuts are the top features to look for when shopping for your Moroccan inspired swimwear...

We love the gorgeous classy brown colour on this simple, elegant bikini.

The Moroccan inspired pattern on these bikini bottoms pairs well with black for a classic, graceful look.

If sexy sophistication is your vibe, then this swimsuit is made for you.

 

5. Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon is an Instagrammer’s paradise. From steep streets lined with colourful houses and beautiful bustling beaches, Lisbon is a fun and thriving city.

Explore the neighbourhoods and hilly streets by catching the tram, stopping off to soak in the atmosphere and to taste a pastel de nata or 3! Then head down to the beaches to watch, or experience, the surf that draws in water sports enthusiasts from all over the globe.

If quirky hotels are your thing, then Lisbon certainly isn’t short of them. The perfect base for wandering through this electric city full of history, art and fine dining.

A city this vibrant deserves some bright and colourful swimwear…

We love this geometric print and the athletic design is perfect for all our sporty babes.

This teeny bikini has such a cute contrasting print.

If prints aren’t your thing, then this bright green ruched number is the one for you.

 
Hopefully, you’re inspired to jet off armed with your new Havana Babe swimwear (of course) this 2018!
