With the kids off school and a two day public holiday, Easter is the perfect time for a holiday. Many European destinations are beginning to warm up, and if you travel further afield you’re guaranteed glorious sunshine.
Here at Holiday Hypermarket we have all the top destinations for the ultimate Easter adventure!
The gorgeous Mediterranean island of Majorca is a popular holidaymaker destination, with the nightlife and stunning beaches pulling in the crowds year after year. But there’s more to Majorca than this. Visit the vibrant capital city of Palma, or some of the beautiful coastal villages.
Inland you’ll encounter a beautiful landscape of mountains, lakes and almond-blossom groves perfect for exploring. The weather in April averages a pleasant 20°C, although it has been known to reach a few degrees higher. This is a great temperature for sightseeing, but still sunny enough to spend time on the beach or by the pool if you’re wanting to make the most of your All Inclusive package.
The average rainfall in April is roughly five days, so you can relax knowing that the sun will most definitely come home with a tan.

Another European destination is the Greek island of Rhodes. The beaches alone will make it worth the visit, with calm coves nestled in among limestone cliffs, caressed by clear waters. Rhodes also has a lot to offer in terms of culture, including the ruins near the picturesque village of Lindos. Rhodes Old Town is also fabulously atmospheric, with winding cobbled streets and Byzantine-era buildings – you won’t be disappointed.
We highly recommend a visit in April, when the temperature average at warm 20°C. The beaches are less crowded and it’s not too hot to explore the sights, making it the perfect holiday hotspot.

If you’re searching for sunshine, why not travel further afield to Jamaica? This Caribbean island is bursting with life and colour. The beaches, with their pure white sand and crystal-clear seas, are renowned across the world. Seven Mile Beach, near Negril, is one of the island’s best. The historic town of Falmouth is another great destination, with some stunning beaches nearby. It’s also close to Glistening Waters, a lagoon that glows blue with marina phosphorescence at night time.
During the month of April, Jamaica is a sizzling 26°C – great for sunbathing and swimming. This is the dry season in Jamaica, so pack your factor 50!

The Caribbean island of Cuba has a distinctive personality, and makes for a unique April holiday. The beach at Guardalavaca is regarded as one of the island’s finest, with its white sand, clear skies and azure sea. It’s a popular dive and snorkel site, with coral reefs, underwater caves, and waters swimming with colourful fish.
No trip to Cuba is complete without a visit to the buzzing capital, Havana. Think brightly painted houses and vintage cars, fascinating museums and amazing live music events. In April, temperatures can rise to 25°C, making this a perfect beach holiday destination – and since this is the dry season, you don’t need to worry about bringing an umbrella.
