Swap chocolate eggs for coconuts this year and consider a last-minute Easter holiday with The Turquoise Holiday Company, experts in tailormade travel to the world’s most beautiful islands and beaches. Family owned and run, the Turquoise team understand it is the little details which count when it comes to planning the perfect family escape. Here is their hand-picked roundup of five idyllic island escapes to travel to this Easter.


1. Greece

The Greek Islands are a must for every family holiday bucket list. Whatever the age of your little (or big!) ones, there is an island for you. Crete and Santorini get our pick for an Easter getaway, offering a multitude of activities and accommodation options. From rugged hiking trails to smooth blue-sky sailing, volcanoes, caves, and endless white-sand beaches, a Greek family holiday ticks all the boxes.

Where to stay? St. Nicolas Bay Resort Hotel & Villas, Crete

 

2. Oman

For a cultural ‘edventure’, Oman offers families an Aladdin’s Cave of Middle Eastern experiences, without the crowds. Blessed with beautiful (almost guaranteed!) endless sun-drenched days, top up your vitamin D this Easter whilst exploring the Souq’s of Muscat, the almighty Al Hajar Mountains, the remote Musandam Peninsula, or the sweeping Wahiba Sands desert.

 Where to stay? Six Senses Zighy Bay

 
3. Maldives

A string of pearls sparkling amidst the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, the islands of the Maldives offer families the ultimate paradise island escape. The one-island, one-hotel nature of a family holiday to the Maldives allows children free reign to explore to their heart's content whilst weary parents rest, relax and recharge.

4. Mauritius  

Mauritius has long reigned supreme as one of the world’s top family holiday destinations. Luxury hotels and resorts are on offer in abundance, hugging the sparkling coastline. However, what makes Mauritius truly unique is the multitude of island adventures beyond the hotel walls. Horse riding on Flic En Flac beach, hiking in Le Morne, sailing to Ile Aux Cerfs, and visiting Black River Gorges National Park are just a few of our favorites.

5. Saint Lucia

Framed by the magnificent Piton mountains, the jungle-clad island of Saint Lucia is our number one family pick for those wanting a dose of Caribbean charm this Easter. Wander the streets of Marigot Bay, drippy ice creams in hand, before visiting a local cocoa plantation to learn how chocolate is made. Back to the beach for toes-in-the-sand sunset cocktails and mocktails.

Where to stay? Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort
