2020 hasn’t been the year of travel that many of us hoped for so maybe it’s time to start looking ahead and planning our future adventures to give us something to look forward to.
In 2021, Easter falls in early April, so our travel experts have picked out the destinations that are perfect for visiting at that time of year.
Don’t forget, planning your travels around the Easter Bank holiday will allow you to take just five days annual leave and enjoy an 11-day holiday. Find out more here about how you can make the most of your annual leave in 2021.
With a pleasant year-round climate, you can expect daytime temperatures of around 24C in Tenerife around Easter. The largest of the Canary Islands is well regarded as a luxury travel hotspot thanks to its clutch of 5* hotels and Michelin-starred dining venues such as Kabuki at the Ritz-Carlton, Abama where modern Japanese fusion dishes are served alongside innovative cocktails.
An island rich in natural wonder, Tenerife provides intrigue both on land and in the surrounding waters. Mount Teide is Spain’s largest mountain and its summit can be reached either on foot, following a rewarding five to six-hour hike, or via a leisurely cable car ride which allows passengers the opportunity to pause and take in the otherworldly landscape surrounding the mountain. Tenerife’s southern coastal waters are a magnet for cetaceans with pilot whales, sperm whales and bottlenose dolphins all likely to be found during your April visit.

Like Tenerife, Lanzarote’s fortuitous location off the west coast of Africa means it enjoys a pleasant year-round climate. The island’s rugged landscape and postcard-perfect beaches make it a smart choice for families looking to get away over Easter to enjoy some beachside relaxation in the sun.
The island’s southern coast is lined by a collection of protected golden sand beaches, such as Papagayo, which make up part of the Monumento Natural de los Ajaches. The beaches’ secluded location gives them a real sense of peace and privacy.
Lanzarote’s volcanic interior is home to a fruitful wine region which brings its own unique aesthetic to wine growing, away from the classic image of rolling green vineyards. So striking in the resultant landscape of vines sprouting from volcanic craters that it inspired the artwork of Lanzarote’s very own César Manrique.
Dubai is a city of limitless possibilities where the world’s largest skyscrapers pierce the endless blue above the desert sands and the most luxurious supercars are paraded through the streets. The city’s lavish reputation goes before it and its opulent hotels, such as Madinat Jumeirah and Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach (pictured), more than uphold this reputation with their elegant family-friendly accommodations.
Away from the glitz and the glamour, the area’s traditional Arabian heritage and culture still shine through in Dubai. Experience a window into this authentic culture onboard a traditional Dhow boat cruise which offers spectacular views of the modern metropolis that Dubai has become.
The paradise islands of the Maldives are a land of perennial sunshine, granting a feeling of escapism to its adoring guests who visit the islands looking for the quintessential tropical island castaway experience, adrift in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
For a long time, the Maldives has been overlooked as a family destination but with resorts now offering large multi-room villas and family-tailored suites, that’s all changing. Across the Maldives’ unblemished atolls there are countless beaches affording families space to spread out and unwind, and easy access to the unblemished reefs found in spots such as the South Ari Atoll and Laamu Atoll.
Easter will fall right in the middle of Barbados’ dry season in 2021, so you can look forward to some long-overdue vitamin D, without the worry of downpours causing disruption to your stay.

With direct flights to the island from London Heathrow, London Gatwick and Manchester Airport, you could be in this Eden-like setting in under nine hours.
