Holidays in April are all about islands, be those Mauritius, the Seychelles, Fiji, French Polynesia or last but far from least Japan, which is completely à point at this time of year as the fabled blossom season sweeps northwards through the islands.

On the other side of the Pacific, the USA is in full festival mode, with California, Nashville and New Orleans all hosting April music festivals. This is also a great time of year to visit the Stateside National Parks, before the crowds kick in.

Finally, the Spaniards give the Brazilians a run for their partying money, and Seville during Feria is one enormous street party. The fun begins two weeks after Semana Santa (Easter) and involves a constant whirl of processions, bullfights, flamenco dancing and general over-consumption of sherry and tapas.

More (April) fool the traveller who doesn’t plan their Easter bank holidays early, as April is a great month to grab some last minute skiing or early summer sun in the Middle East or North Africa.

Our favourites for April

Palm Trees Amidst Rocky Outcrops at Wadi Shab


A wonderful destination combining beautiful beachfront properties and dramatic mountain and desert landscapes to explore.

Japanese Parasol


Quite possibly the most 'other' destination on Earth, and in our humble opinion a must for everyone's bucket list.

Birds of the Seychelles


An ideal choice for anybody looking for lower-key beach time than is provided by the glitzier Maldives or Mauritius.

Aerial view of Mauritius


This tiny Indian Ocean island has long set the standard for tropical luxury holidays.

Tikehau Island, French Polynesia

French Polynesia

They may be on the other side of the planet, but the islands of French Polynesia are well, well worth the detour.

Good things come to those who wait, or at least to those who are prepared to travel to the other side of the globe.

Paradise islands don’t come much better than the Maldives.
