Easter is coming, and with a long weekend on the horizon and the children on Easter holidays, you may want to get away for a short break. CLC World has picked the 6 best Easter holiday destinations for you to choose from.
Keep the kids (and adults) entertained with a magical trip to Orlando and some of the world’s best theme parks. Stay at CLC Regal Oaks in Kissimmee, only 4 miles from Walt Disney World®, and watch their little faces light up!
If theme parks aren’t your thing, there’s still the sun and culture of Orlando to enjoy. Check out downtown Orlando with its quirky bohemian side, or set your eyes on outer space at the Kennedy Space Center.
Don’t fancy flying? Then why not staycation in Cornwall on England’s southwestern tip. CLC Trenython Manor, just outside the pretty harbour town of Fowey, is a great location to explore the beaches and moors of the county.
Head to Padstow for some of Rick Stein’s famous fish and chips or grab a pasty and pint of cider at a village pub after a good hike across Bodmin Moor. For the kids, there’s rock pooling, the Eden Project or simply running about in Cornwall’s glorious nature. It’s the stuff memories are made of!
Spring is the best time to explore, Portugal’s capital city. One of the most beautiful in Europe, Lisbon offers postcard-perfect views of ancient ruins, narrow cobbled streets, and white-domed cathedrals.
Lisbon’s seven hills provide the backdrop to the cityscape and are capped by terraces known as miradouros (viewpoints). You’ll be adding #nofilterneeded to your Instagram posts of the views from there.
Alongside traditional markets, delicious pastries and chic seaside resorts, you’ll find loads to keep you entertained. Great for a romantic getaway over the long Easter weekend.
The British weather is notoriously fickle until the end of May, and while sun is not guaranteed on the Costa del Sol at Easter, the odds are still pretty good.
Come for a week or long weekend to CLC Club La Costa World and take the opportunity to explore beyond the sandy beaches of this glorious stretch of Spain. Easter week is a remarkable sight in southern Spain with daily processions of hooded figures carrying huge tronos with larger-than-life sized statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus.
When the crowds get too much, head to a chiringuito for fresh seafood and local wine, or back to the resort to laze by the pool and dine at one of the onsite restaurants.
The Austrians love a seasonal market and Easter in Vienna is no exception. Soak up the atmosphere at the city’s three markets before indulging in beautifully sculpted cake and delicious coffee at a stylish coffee house.
Head outside the city to Schönbrunn Palace, a Baroque masterpiece with glittering interiors and gorgeously landscaped gardens. Back in Vienna central, Mozart’s piano concertos will lure you to the acoustically superior Muzikverein and the museums will quench your thirst for knowledge. An ideal destination for an Easter escape.
If your golf swing has become a little rusty in the wet winter weather, why not head to Tenerife for a few rounds? The Costa Adeje in the south of the island is home to a great range of golf courses, including championship courses, and two CLC World resorts.
If you’re holidaying with the family, time off the course can be spent at the world’s best water park, Siam Park, on the sandy beaches or simply relaxing by the pool. In the evenings, the lively resorts of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos are within easy driving distance.
