  • Top Easter Break Destinations

    The kids are off school, the sun is starting to make an appearance and there are cheap flights to be had: what more reasons do you need to book a holiday for Easter this year?

    Falcon makes holidays happen in loads of destinations that boast plenty of good weather and fun resorts throughout the whole year. The best thing is that bookings are usually cheaper at this time of the year, rather than in the peak of summer when you have other sun-seekers to contend with.

    Let’s take a look at just three hot spots where you could be spending Easter.

    Sharm El Sheikh

    Sharm el Sheikh Beaches

    For first-class diving spots, head to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt. Cornering the Red Sea as part of the Sinai Peninsula, the waters form the Ras Mohamed National Park – the oldest national park in the country. This provides amazing opportunities for swimming around colourful coral and with fascinating fish.

    Take it easy on the beautiful beaches, including Tiran Island, Naama Bay and Sharks Bay. These resorts are home to a range of accommodation, plentiful eating options and shops for your souvenirs and essentials. You might also want to take the family further inland for a desert safari or a trip to the Valley of Kings underground tombs.

    Tenerife

    The Canary Islands are another part of the world that offers pretty much guaranteed sunshine throughout all seasons. Tenerife offers two types of terrain for two distinctive types of holiday: sunbathing and water sports in the dry south; exploring culture and lush greens in the north. Visit during the Easter holidays and you will hit those high temperatures no matter what region you stay in.

    Two of the more popular resorts for families are Play de las Americas (south) and Puerto de la Cruz (north). From these you can venture out to fun spots, like Siam Park waterpark, Loro Parque wildlife park and Mount Teide National Park. There is always enjoyment to be had in the evenings, at shows and in lively restaurants.

    Gran Canaria

    Surfing Gran Canaria

    Little sister to Tenerife, Gran Canaria is the third largest island in the Canaries archipelago. It shares similar features to its fellow islands, including year round sun, contrasting terrain and fun packed beaches. It has been aptly nicknamed ‘Content in Miniature’ due to its African influenced plains in the south and leafy green areas in the north.

    Most family resorts are based in the south of the island, along with the beaches brimming with activities. You can also splash about in Aqualand, go on the ride in Holiday World or discover tropical birds at Palmitos Park. There are also loads of watersports to try out, including windsurfing and sailing!

    Easter is the ideal time to take it easy and take advantage of the low prices and high temperatures. These are just a few of the destinations you might find yourself in, so take a look at the Falcon website to see what tickles your fancy.
