For the travellers who don't plan their Easter bank holidays early, this is a great month to grab some early summer sun in the Middle East or North Africa.

April is the last month of the dry season in the Maldives (though off-season is better for whale sharks and mantas so it's not all bad) and things are starting to change out west in Central America and in parts of the Far East (last call for the Philippines!). While the weather's already turned in East Africa.
Diving in April
It's a perfect time to visit the Middle East with the old favourite of Egypt not yet too hot to bear. And then there's Oman, the quintessential Original Diving favourite and perfect for couples and families alike with its guaranteed sunshine and relatively short flight time. When it comes to marine life hotspots, those whale sharks are still well and truly active in Belize and you still have a chance of hammerhead sharks in Tikehau in French Polynesia.
