Happy Easter! While you’re pretending that you still eat ham, love attending a very long Mass, and the Easter Bunny is somehow real, you could be far away from the demanding, tradition-filled holiday. Here are four islands where you should spend Easter instead.
St. Kitts: Watch vervet monkeys play outside the spa during a pedicure, sip a calypso sangria by the pool, and fall asleep to barking tree frogs at your favorite Caribbean retreat.
St. Eustatius: Find a new favorite island in the Caribbean after exploring the forts, the volcano, and the black-sand beaches near Oranjestad.
Cabo Verde: Scuba dive, cave dive, whale watch, surf, and fish on an island that rarely receives rain off the coast of Africa.
Folegandros: See how the Greeks celebrate Easter—Greek Easter is also observed on April 20th this year—in a quiet, cliffside town in the Cyclades.
