Popular destinations in April for the perfect spring holiday

The best destinations to visit in April? Sure look, the weather at home might be pretty temperamental at this time of year, but in other destinations you’ll be guaranteed some wonderfully mild and warm climates. Some great examples of this are the many countries and islands in the Indian Ocean. In Thailand, the Maldives, Sri Lanka and Vietnam you can expect summery temperatures of up to 30 degrees. Perfect for relaxing on the beach beneath the palms and soaking up those gorgeous views out to the sea. There are also destinations in Europe that offer warm weather in Europe. In Spain, Italy and Greece, you can enjoy mild weather. Those of you really looking to soak up some sun in Europe at this time of year should head to Cyprus or the Canaries. If you want to combine a beach holiday with a city break, then Dubai is the destination for you. Other amazing destinations for a city break in April are Barcelona, Venice, Verona and Rome. The temperatures will be perfect for getting all your sightseeing done, unlike that sweltering heat during the summer! Same goes for the capital of Tuscany, Florence.

Do you prefer the beach, or a bit of history or culture? Well, you can easily do both – one insider tip for me when it comes to the best April destinations is Morocco. Temperatures are hovering at around the 20 degree mark, which is perfect for a trip down to the beach in towns such as Agadir, Essaouira or Saidia. If you’d rather get to know the culture a bit more, then you obviously have to check out the “Pearl of the South: Marrakech. April is the best time to visit Marrakech as while temperatures are still warm, you’ll be avoiding the huge crowds that come during the summer. And over in our favourite sun destinations the weather is plenty warm enough for a sun-filled Easter family holiday. Top destinations for a family holiday in Easter are the Canaries and the Balearic Islands such as Majorca and Ibiza. In Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Fuerteventura, temperatures will be reaching heights of up to 24 degrees, while Majorca is just waiting to be explored with temperatures of 20 degrees. Perfect for all your road trips and sightseeing adventures! Where ever you decide to go in April, I wish you safe travels and have an amazing time!
