All the Brexit blarney, of which no one is sure of what they are talking about yet, is certainly not putting off the Britons from going on holiday. And this Easter, Majorca is the top destination.

Holiday specialist On the Beach reveals that more Britons are heading to sunny Spain than anywhere else over the Easter period.

Ever-popular Majorca is the most popular destination overall this Easter, closely followed by last year’s most popular hot-spot, Tenerife.

The sun-kissed Algarve region of Portugal is the third most popular sun spot this Easter, followed by Alicante in the Costa Blanca. The beautiful island of Lanzarote completes the top five list of the most popular destinations this Easter.

Destinations showing the biggest increase in sales this Easter compared to last include Cyprus and the Greek islands of Corfu and Crete.

Morocco is also proving more popular for Easter getaways this year, with Britons heading to both the magical city of Marrakech and the beaches of Agadir.

Alistair Daly, chief marketing pfficer at On the Beach said: "Spain is always a popular destination for Brits heading abroad over the Easter period and it’s interesting to see the growing popularity of Majorca, which in the past was generally considered a summer sun destination for British holidaymakers.

"We can see that trend continuing with more and more people heading to other traditional summer sun destinations such as Corfu and Crete over the Easter period, both of which enjoy many hours of sunshine each day."
