Easter - the Great Escape!
As the Easter Bank Holidays are coming up soon, many people start thinking about heading abroad for a bit of adventure or relaxation - probably the first chance they’ve had since the New Year. As the days get longer and the green shoots of spring come alive, it can be great idea to recharge those batteries with family and friends.
The Flexicover Team explore some great destinations to visit over March and April!
Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and with its Mediterranean climate offers gloriously sunny days during March and April - perfect conditions for walking, exploring and relaxing! If you are looking for beaches, mountainscapes, valleys and scenic views then Crete is for you; it’s no surprise that it’s one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. The natural beauty and historic cultural heritage (home of the ancient Minoan civilisation and tales of the Minotaur in his Labyrinth) make this island an extremely attractive option for a short break away - only 4 hours from home!
Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, has a rich culture and is full of beautiful scenery. March/April is a great time to visit if you want to miss the hustle and bustle of the high season tourist crowds. From charismatic towns to sandy beaches and turquoise sea, Sardinia is a perfect escape. Walk, ride a bicycle or simply relax in the sun, the choice is yours! Be sure to take advantage of its culinary delights, from hearty pasta dishes to local cheeses like pecorina and smoked ricotta!
The Adriatic coast has been attracting visitors from around the world for years! Croatia’s coastline has generally managed to escape overdevelopment and beams with natural beauty backed up with strong cultural history. Whether you’re looking to explore Zagreb (the capital city), visit Plitvice Lakes (a World Heritage Site and a National Park), relax or kayak down the four rivers of Karlovac (the Dobra, Mrežnica, Korana and Kupa rivers), it’s great fun for all the family. March and April are great months to visit for excellent value breaks here.
Jamaica is a great place in March/April as the days are lovely, warm and sunny without being too hot. It makes an ideal retreat for some summer warmth before the sizzling summer set in! If you are looking for relaxation on the beach, family friendly or couples-only resorts, then this Caribbean island will have something for you with its unspoilt beaches to scenic scenery in the uplands. Whilst there, catch the International Kite Festival in Ocho Rios, a great activity for all the family!
The golden state of California is a great place to visit around Easter time and with sun pretty much guaranteed, you can’t go wrong! Whether you choose to visit the state capital of Sacramento, San Francisco Bay in the north, Los Angeles and San Diego in the south or take a road trip, there is something for everyone including the must-visit original Disneyland. Miles of fabulous coastline, dramatic mountain ranges, pristine lakes and vineyards a-plenty make for great fun!
