April holidays in the Canary Islands
Temperatures in the Canary Islands average a very balmy 24 degrees in April, when there is very little rainfall and you can expect between 8 and 9 hours of sunshine a day. Lanzarote offers everything from beautiful beaches and remarkable landscapes (particularly in the Timanfaya National Park) to charming towns and lively resorts. Tenerife, crowned by the volcanic peak of Mount Teide, is surrounded by crystal-clear waters, and features a fantastic choice of resorts to suit all travellers. Fuerteventura is ideal for a tranquil escape, and boasts 150 kilometres of stunning, white-sand beaches.
April holidays on the Costa Blanca
The Costa Blanca is beautiful in spring: cherry and almond blossom carpet the mountain slopes, and temperatures are in the low 20s, perfect for hiking. The resorts are gearing up for summer, so there is plenty to see and do, but there are fewer crowds. Benidorm, capital of the Costa Blanca, gets a lot of visitors over Easter week, when it is very lively, but then calms down again. It’s a little chilly for swimming, but you’ll certainly be able to soak up some sunshine, with an average of 9 hours of sun a day.
City breaks in April
April is a fantastic time to head off for a city break. It’s warm, but not too hot to explore, and there are fewer tourists around (particularly if you avoid the busy Easter holiday week), so you won’t have to queue for attractions. Marrakech, the alluring ‘Red City’, sees average temperatures in the mid- to high-20s in April, with about 10 hours of sunshine daily and very little rainfall. Nights are cool, so you’ll be able to sleep comfortably. Lisbon’s steep streets will make you feel grateful for cooler temperatures: expect the thermometer to hover around 20 degrees in April. This beautiful city is a delight to explore on foot, and in the evenings you can have a drink at one of the inviting fado bars in the historic Bairro Alto neighbourhood.
There are times when you just want to get away from it all and soak up some serious sunshine. Phuket, Thailand’s biggest island, offers dreamy white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, and scores of things to do, from every imaginable water sport to world-famous nightlife, and from ancient monasteries to lively street markets. This tropical island averages 28 degrees in April, and the water is warm year-round. April is also a great time to visit Cancún, on the Riviera Maya. The peak season crowds have left, but the summer rains have yet to come, and the temperatures are in the high 20s – perfect for relaxing on the picture-postcard Caribbean beaches. Cape Verde, a cluster of magical islands 500 kilometres from the coast of Africa, offers great hiking, stunning beaches, welcoming people and guaranteed sunshine – temperatures are in the mid-20s in April.
