When to go where in April
All this light and warmth on our skin, long sunny days and birdsong and a greening across the countryside of the northern hemisphere. Spring, at last!
In April it is clear to see that Europe is warming up for summer. This makes it the perfect time for an early sunshine break by the sea, or in the rolling hills on the Continent. Perhaps you’d prefer a city break as the pavement cafés start putting out their chairs and tables, before the dusty streets get too hot? April is almost perfect for booking a last-chance ski holiday somewhere high, to catch the last of the snow. Or you could choose somewhere further afield for guaranteed sunshine and a complete cultural change.
Cuba is a fascinating destination where exquisite beaches and bright blue seas contrast with a 1950’s time capsule ambience of intoxicating rum, iconic cigars, rhythmic maracas, sweltering rumba and vintage Cadillacs. If you want a holiday that is both blissfully beach and culturally rich, Cuba will astound in more ways than you could imagine.
In Morocco, one of the most magical cities is that of Marrakesh, where spices fill the air and you’ll be overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the locals, bursting with energy and pride for their city. Lose yourself in the souks amidst striking colours, hand crafted leather, and rugs that have been woven by Berber tribes of the Middle Atlas mountains.
Portugal’s winning combination of sandy beaches, dramatic scenery and world-class golf courses has kept it firmly on the holiday map for decades. And if all that wasn’t enough, the country also has excellent weather credentials, basking in around 300 days of sunshine a year!
Curving round the south coast is the Algarve region, which has a dramatic coastline scalloped with sandy bays and secluded coves. Resort-wise, you can choose between large, lively towns and sleepy fishing villages. This pocket of Portugal is also one of the best places in Europe for golfers – and trust us when we say some of the courses are truly spectacular.
Thanks to its sandy beaches, ancient sights and up-tempo nightlife, Cyprus is a firm holiday favourite, attracting everyone from families to clubbers. Beautiful beaches and a mix of laid-back and lively resorts fringe the island. And if you go inland, you’ll find sleepy villages, hidden hamlets and the scenic Troodos Mountains.
