Winter’s not over yet. There’s still some time left to heat things up during the last of the coldest days of the year. To warm you up a little, we gathered 10 of our favourite #openmyworld beach vacation photos from our Flight Centre Canada Instagram page for a little sun-spiration. Whether you’re looking for a surfing and hiking adventure in Hawaii, or to get as far away as possible on a beach adventure in Southeast Asia or Australia, or just want to kick back in a tropical paradise like Mexico or the Caribbean where everything you need is within arm’s reach – we have a beach vacation for you. Go ahead. Picture yourself here:

Pool or beach? Contemplate two of the toughest choices you’ll have to make while you’re here. In the meantime, sip on a cold beverage, stop by the spa, or indulge in lavish a la carte dining at your resort while you decide.
