Where to go in … April

Ah, April, the month the Northern Hemisphere gleefully emerges from its winter hibernation. The month we all excitedly peer outside at the sun-soaked buds starting to bloom, collectively marvelling at “how light it is in the mornings” and breathe a united sigh of relief that hazy summer evenings spent sipping an Aperol Spritz are just around the corner. This renewed energy makes for the perfect time to dust off your passport and get something in the diary for the not-so-distant future. Whether you fancy a city break, a road trip or lazy days reclining on the beach – it’s time to explore again!

April is one of nemo’s favourite months to travel, with some of our favourite hotels serving up great rates, and our destinations offering quieter surroundings and palatable weather. But where to go? We’ve rounded up some of our favourite nemo destinations to explore next month.

Enjoy the Delights of Cape Town, South Africa

April marks the start of autumn in South Africa, and Cape Town offers a buzzing atmosphere as out-of-town locals come here for Easter, but it’s quieter on the international tourists front, so you can get an authentic flavour of Cape Town during April. With great rates and pleasant weather, April’s the perfect time to hike to Table Mountain, ride some waves at Noordhoek beach or frequent one of the many fantastic eateries on offer – Cape Town really is your oyster!

Lazy Days in Mozambique 

As the summer rains clear, Mozambique offers clear days and balmy temperatures during the month of April – perfect for those looking for a bit of barefoot luxury in idyllic surroundings. We reckon it’s time to dig out your Birkenstocks, pack your well-thumbed book and grab your SPF – there’s a patch of palm-fringed white sand with your name on it.

Enjoy a City Break in Lisbon, Portugal 

If you’re yearning for a European city break in April, Lisbon should be top of the list. During April, you can benefit from slightly cheaper rates and smaller queues for your pastéis de nata… After exploring all Lisbon has to offer, why not head off the beaten track to sample the delights of Portugal’s wild countryside, or catch a flight to the Azores, where the first signs of spring begin to bloom, perfect for winding your way down some of the islands’ epic hiking routes.

Immerse Yourself in Sakura in Mount Fuji, Japan

With Japan’s striking sakura season gracing our Instagram feed every year, we’d be remiss to leave Japan’s Cherry Blossom season off of this list. The riot of delicate pink blooms framing the majestic Mount Fuji is one of the best snapshots of the sakura season, perfect for unwinding and reconnecting to nature in beautiful, transient surroundings.

Embark on a Great Escape to Oaxaca, Mexico

With the food, the culture and the oh so beautiful places to sleep, Oaxaca is a fantastic destination to visit in April. April is one of Oaxaca’s hotter months (reaching highs of around 32 degrees C), so remember to pack your SPF and wide-brimmed hat, so you can focus on exploring the candy-coloured architecture, bustling markets and enigmatic coastline comfortably.
