The beach. It’s the holy grail of family travel.
There's nothing kids love more than splashing around in the
shallows, master-minding entire sand kingdoms (castles are so 2013)
and perhaps even a spot of French cricket.
Now we all know good old Blighty is not the most reliable when
it comes to beach-worthy weather, and spending rainy week after
rainy week stuck inside the house with over excited children on
school holidays does not sound all that appealing to us, and so
that's where our collection of family beach holidays in the sun
comes in. We know all the best places for a luxury family holiday
on the beach, whatever time of year you're travelling, whether that
be Cyprus in the summer, the Caribbean over Christmas or the
Maldives for Easter (or all three) - we've got you covered.
While we may live on an island lined with beaches, these can
often involve cold, windy days spent wrapping your children in
coats to stop from shivering after a swim in the sea (while
refusing to admit that we're not having fun, because we're
British). So why not instead trade that in for a white-sand beach
and warm turquoise waters that you'll have to drag your children
out of at the end of the day, and (almost) guaranteed sun, where
the only weather-related worry you'll have is if you've covered
them in enough water-resistant sun cream.
Are we nearly there yet? Mention that you're heading beach-wards
to your little monsters and this will be the inevitable question…
for the next five hours. Well fear not, because we've joined forces
with much-loved children's party people, Sharky &
George, who will create a carefully selected goodie bag filled
with bits and bobs to keep them entertained throughout the
