Fantastic family dive destinations for Easter

Planning a family dive getaway this Easter? There are still some great destinations with last-minute availability. Avoid the high summer season and still enjoy some of the best dive conditions around the world. This is the ideal time of year for a getaway and some family bonding. The Easter break is long enough to choose long haul destinations, with enough recovery time after flights to still make the most of your holiday and pack in lots of fun activities.

Here are five great family dive destinations for your Easter holiday:

Oman

At seven hours direct flight from the UK, this would best be described as a medium haul destination. And while it might not yet be on the radar for most people when it comes diving holidays, this is all the more reason to check it out. Situated on the south-eastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman has been gaining in popularity as a dive destination because of the great conditions and liveaboards available. However, it has proved to be particularly popular with families because of its safety record, modern infrastructure and affordable luxury hotels. With a wide range of diving and snorkelling sites, it is guaranteed to be a hit with the whole family. There are also plenty of cultural highlights to enjoy and one of our experts can you help you plan a fascinating tour of the country.

Gozo

Forming a part of Malta, the beautiful clear waters and exciting drop-offs around Gozo have been on the diving map for some time now. Explore underwater caves and tunnels, discover grottos and spectacular scenery, and enjoy diving for all levels. There are more than 50 dive sites, so there really is something for everyone. It’s also exceptional value for money and because it’s located in the Mediterranean, there are plenty of available and affordable flights.

Mauritius

A little further in terms of travel but also great value for money, you can enjoy a luxury dive holiday in Mauritius with free kids clubs. So, if mum and dad want to go off to explore the tropical waters around the islands, they can do so knowing the kids are having a great time too. The best diving is located off the north-western coast where there is a reef base covered in both hard and soft coral. And, although it is a long flight from the UK, there are direct options and the time difference is only three hours so you won’t spend days adjusting.

Indonesia

The Wakatobi Luxury Resort offers perhaps the ultimate in a luxury family dive resort, with world-class diving for all levels. Located in a remote place in a UNESCO reserve, with a dive centre on site and an amazing house reef to explore, what more could the family need? You can enjoy completely personalised diving activities as well as a range of other luxury options and activities for all the family.

Fuerteventura

dive-corralejo

Offering great value for money and at just four hours away, Corralejo in Fuerteventura is another convenient destination for a family dive break. It’s the second largest of the Canary Islands but one of the least developed, which means the waters around the island are usually great for diving. Base yourself at a stunning five-star hotel for a truly luxurious family break.
