Majorca at Easter


The island of Majorca is a fantastic option for an Easter break. With temperatures in the low-20s, it’s not boiling but it’s warm enough to sit outside and eat alfresco, explore the beautiful hilltop villages and even have a dip in a pool or the sea. Unlike the summer months, when Majorca can be quite a bit busy, Easter is much quieter and you’ll be able to sightsee in the historic towns of Deià and Valldemossa without worrying about the heat, the traffic or the crowds.

Dubai at Easter


If you want guaranteed heat at Easter (and who doesn’t), Dubai is the place to go. A direct flight to Dubai takes about seven hours but, when you land, you’ll find yourself transported to an oasis of amazing hotels, incredible pools, delicious food and beautiful beaches. This is perfect for a family getaway; Dubai has its own theme park, aqua park, water sports and several luxury hotels with exceptionally well-equipped kids’ clubs. There really is something for the whole family.

Oxford at Easter


Or how about a city break among the dreaming spires of Oxford? You can try your hand at punting on the River Cherwell, look at the artefacts in the famous Ashmolean Museum and marvel at the beautiful architecture of the mediaeval colleges. There are some fantastic independent shops to visit too and check out the Oxford Playhouse if you fancy seeing a brilliant play one evening.

Cornwall at Easter 


While it’s tempting to head abroad for the beach, Britain also has some lovely shoreline of its own. There’s plenty on offer in Cornwall which boasts stunning coastline, sandy beaches and yummy cuisine – especially if you like your seafood. Cornwall is famously a surfers’ paradise and Easter is a great time to pit yourself against the waves, before it gets too busy. In terms of sightseeing, don’t miss The Eden Project, Padstow Harbour and Pendennis Castle.

The French Alps at Easter

While some people might be in search of warmer climes, there’s still snow on the French Alps at Easter, making it the ideal time to have your last dose of skiing or snowboarding. Tignes and Val d’Isere are good resorts to head to for late-season skiing and offer plenty of run options, depending on your ability. Val d’Isere has a large children’s area with a magic carpet ski lift as well as lots of nursery slopes. If you fancy something a bit more challenging, there’s off-piste runs and a glacier to tackle, as well as waterfall climbing and lake diving for those wanting a break from the white stuff.

A Cruise for Easter 


If you’re finding it difficult to narrow your Easter holiday down to just one destination, what about going on a cruise and seeing several? On a Mediterranean cruise you can visit the likes of Barcelona, Marseille and Rome in seven days, hopping off for a day’s excursion before returning to the luxury of your cruise liner in the evening. It’s an ideal way to see Europe and you can enjoy all the entertainment and on-board facilities, such as a spa, cinema and indoor casino, in the evening.

An Easter holiday to Italy can involve one or a few of these; while it’s not scorching hot at this time of year, it’s certainly pleasant and you get the odd warm day, if you want to take a refreshing dip in the beautiful Mediterranean.
