Step away from the Equator. Easter is in April this year and it’s hot enough on many European beaches to shed your winter woollies and go frolicking in the sea without the pain of a long-haul flight. Here are eleven close and not too costly family trips perfect for an Easter holiday.
The party doesn’t get started on Ibiza’s northwest coast until well into July. Turn up for Easter and the beaches are clear of clubbers sleeping it off; the weather’s 23°C and climbing; the sea’s safe for watersports and San Antonio is just lively enough to at this time of year for families.
Torrent Bay Hotel is in Port d’es Torrent, a sleepy little suburb just west of San Antonio with fabulous golden sands and not much else, but water taxis run day and night so you can visit Ibiza Old Town and other resorts round the coast in no time. Or you could go with the holiday vibe, relax and not do anything at all.
£652 for seven nights including return flights from Gatwick, flying out 9th April. Based on two adults and two children sharing a self-catering one bedroom apartment in Port d’es Torrent, Ibiza.
