Holidays for Babies and Toddlers

Napping, playing, licking everything in sight - it’s tough work being a toddler, and your little ones deserve a beach break as much as anyone. Introducing your children to new cultures and experiences from a young age is a great way to create childhood memories that they’ll treasure forever. So, to celebrate toddler-friendly holidays, we’ve collected the hotels with the best kid-centric facilities, playgrounds and splash pools below to help you choose the perfect family getaway.

Toddler-friendly holidays with short flights

These short flights are over in the blink of an eye (okay, maybe ever so slightly longer than that). As far as we’re concerned, the quicker you land, the quicker you can get to the good stuff…like the beach! Luckily, you can get somewhere sunny in under three hours – think mainland Spain, the Balearics and Portugal. That’s just about enough time for take off, a few episodes of Peppa Pig, a nap and landing. Even if your toddler doesn’t sleep a wink, the flight will be over before you know it.

Toddler-friendly holidays on a budget

Oh, to be a toddler; no worries or responsibilities, just adventure around every corner. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t feel like that too, especially when you’re on holiday. Low-cost breaks are brimming full of family fun and together time. Get great value on cheesy grins, playing in the pool and making sandcastles at the beach, because you don’t have to spend a lot on your little one to start making priceless memories.

Toddler-friendly holidays to Turkey

You can touch down on your Turkey holiday in less than four hours, making it a very doable distance for families with young children. All Inclusive trips to Turkey are especially toddler-friendly, with some places to stay offering babysitting services as well as amazing splash pools with mini slides, water mushrooms and fountains. Look out for hotels that offer beachfront locations, so you don’t have far to carry any essentials (or tired little ones).

Toddler-friendly holidays to Spain

Spain breaks are ideal for los niños (children, to you and me). A short flight time of under three hours, warm summers and home-from-home facilities make it the perfect choice for your mini me. From a family base in Benidorm to an all-singing, all-dancing resort in Marbella, there are all kinds of hotels that cater to kids. Toddler-friendly holidays to Spain tend to have short transfer times from the airports, as well as children’s pools and family rooms waiting for you.

Toddler-friendly holidays to the Canaries

If you fancy some winter sun with your young family, a holiday in the Canaries is just the ticket. With a flight time that is by no means long haul – you will usually land in Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria or Tenerife in just over four hours – there are few places better suited for family breaks than these sunny islands. There are plenty of places to stay here with a home-from-home feel, as well as secluded spots where you can really soak up those precious days away in peace. Or relative peace, anyway – it’s never dull with a toddler around, is it?

*deposits from £30pp apply when a holiday is purchased 45 days before departure.
