Whether your idea of a perfect lazy day is to lie in a hammock reading the latest bestseller, to sunbathe all day occasionally cooling off in the turquoise sea or to be pampered from head to toe in a spa, you'll feel de-stressed after a week or two in the Maldives.
If you are looking for beaches, the Balearics are a hit for families. Menorca has the best family beaches; however both Menorca and Ibiza also offer great resorts for you and the children.
The Greek islands are opening up for the summer and Turkey is also in full swing. The Spanish Costas, with destinations such as Benidorm and Marbella, can be guaranteed to offer value for money, and the Algarve is also an excellent choice. Cyprus is beautiful at this time of year, covered in flowers, and Malta has warm temperatures for lazing around and playing in your hotel pool.
Further afield, temperatures are rapidly rising in the Egyptian Red Sea resorts and Dubai, so be wary of the heat.
Florida makes a super destination for beaches, theme parks and shopping, or you could just fly and flop in the Caribbean before the summer hurricanes begin.
And, of course, cities in Europe and the UK are well worth visiting. You should be able to stroll around in shirt sleeves across all of southern Europe and you may not even need those jumpers in more northerly cities.
And finally, the UK offers holiday parks, cottages, seaside resorts and day trips galore for all of us to enjoy.
