Easter Getaways

Easter Getaways

With the long weekend upon us and schools out for the holidays, we have rounded up a few of our favourite destinations to discover this Easter.



Easter is a great time to visit Mallorca as it is quieter than the summer so there will no long queues for tourist attractions and the climate is more than pleasant with sunny days and an unlikely chance of rain. There are a number of charming hilltop towns and villages worth visiting like Deià, Arty Artà and Valldemossa, historical sites like the impressive Bellver Castle and La Seu Cathedral as well as the Miró Majorca Foundation if you’re an art afficionado. If you want a more ‘R & R’ vacation then head to a beach - there are 300 of them!


 You may think you’ve missed the boat on skiing season, but Spring is a glorious time to hit the slopes with the family on the snowy Alps. The temperatures are milder so enjoy long lunches on the terrace in the sunshine. Val Thorens is great for beginners with its gentle pistes and has a lively ‘apres-ski’ scene, Tignes and Val d’sere are great for young families and has a great culinary experience, and Zermatt has breath-taking views and a fun Easter egg hunt in the village for the kids.


You can’t go wrong with New York. The city that never sleeps is a great escape for the holidays as there is so much on offer. Take a stroll through Central Park, visit the Met or MoMA for art, catch a ball game, see a play on Broadway, browse the department stores and savouring the best brunch spots are just a few things to do out of many. Special Easter events include ‘The Orchid Show: Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope’ and the Easter Parade & Bonnet Festival.


If all you want to do is switch off and relax this Easter then tour one of the many spectacular Caribbean islands. Resorts are aplenty, with lush sandy beaches and all watersports on offer. Visit Antigua for white secluded beaches (there’s 365of them), Barbados for quintessential island life, Jamaica for culture & music, The Cayman Islands for great diving or The Bahamas for its hidden coves and architecture. Off course there are so many other islands to discover so it may be worth taking a luxury cruise and see them all.


If you don’t want to drift too far away from home then head to Cairo. Set on the Nile, the cultural capital of Egypt is known for its astonishing attractions and wonders of the world. Marvel at the majestic Great Pyramid of Giza and at its feet, the iconic Sphinx. Visit the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities to discover its rich history and pick up some knick-knacks from one of its many bustling bazaars.
