Top 5 Destinations for the 2024 Easter Holidays
Soft fluffy ears, wicker baskets, and chocolate delights, the 2024 Easter holidays are around the corner and with that, it’s time to start planning your ultimate Easter bank holiday weekend. 
Whether you’re looking for something for the family on the beach or a romantic getaway for two, here are the top 5 destinations for the 2024 Easter holidays, ensuring you get the most out of your Easter weekend. 


Cyprus holidays are ideal for living it up in the sunshine, with the balmy Mediterranean Sea as a backdrop. The Easter bank holiday falls during cooler Cyprus weather, meaning you can head into daytime activities in full force without the sizzling summer days being too hot. 
Family holidays in Cyprus offer the ideal option for multigenerational holidays. Little ones will love building sandcastles on the beach and swimming to their heart's content, while parents and grandparents will love relaxing on the beach or heading to the many traditional tavernas, where fresh local seafood is at the top of the menu. The golden sands of Cyprus are also ideal for teens who want to head into the water for sensational water sports adventures. 
If Blue Flag beaches with gorgeous surrounding landscapes sound like your ideal Easter getaway, Paphos holidays offer some of the best beach holidays in Cyprus. Make your way down the cobble-stoned streets and onto the golden sands, where comfortable loungers await after your dip in the cooling ocean. 
For the ultimate couple’s holiday in Cyprus, Amavi Hotel offers five-star luxury on the sands of a Blue Flag beach. The hotel is custom designed for couples only, bringing romance to life on the shores of Paphos. Sunsets here are sensational, with each of the 155 rooms and suites offering unobstructed views from a terrace or balcony. For an all-out Easter feast, the four onsite restaurants have got you covered.
