Where to go for a warm Easter holiday?

We will be spending our first Easter here in Geneva and are able to travel the second week in April. We would like to go someplace warm enough to swim (even in a pool as the sea will be cool), and kid friendly. Any advice? Where are people spending their Easter holidays?

As far as I understand, loads and loads go south, as in Tessin I see bad bad car queue around Easter.

Re: Where to go for a warm Easter holiday?

Far too cold at Easter to swim in Tessin and even in Tuscany.
Fly to the Canaries, check EasyJet flights from Geneva. Flights to Tenerife with EJ go form Basel-Mulhouse. Southern Spain would be nice, but again water too cold at Easter, same for Mallorca.

We were in Tenerife in January, 26/27C and the see was about 20C at Playa del Duque so by Easter it should be lovely.

We were going to go to Sharm El Sheikh with easyjet for Easter, but booked a month later instead to cut half the cost. You could also look into Morocco and, like Odile said, Canary Islands. Those are the 3 places we were looking at for some warmth and beach.

ebookers.ch is a useful resource if you want to book a hotel and flight in one.

Re: Where to go for a warm Easter holiday?

The Canary Islands almost guarantee warmth and sunshine. (But not always). I was on Tenerife in November. Weather wonderful for pool swimming but lots of people - Egypt, Tunisia and the like are out of bounds for most people at the moment. It's probably much the same as in November at the moment.
