What destinations have the best beaches for families?

If you’re travelling with little ones, it’s good to know that the place you’re heading to is family-friendly. Are there toilets? Places to eat? Attractions nearby? Looking for beaches with Blue Flag status means that those beaches are the best they can be. There are plenty of facilities, the beaches are easily accessible and the water quality is good. You’ll find loads of Blue Flag beaches in really popular destinations such as Spain, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. Check out our Family Beach Index to see what destinations have the most to offer!

Where can I travel with a short flight time?

For a fantastic holiday with a child-friendly flight time, try heading to the beautiful Balearic Islands. With flight times of less than two hours, these sun-soaked islands are perfect for a family break. If you’re looking for something a little further, why not head to one of the gorgeous Greek Islands?

What sort of facilities do hotels provide for kids?

Whether you’re travelling with tots or teens, there’s a hotel out there that is perfect for you. Many hotels offer kid’s or teen clubs that are age specific, making them super fun for youngsters. Look out for fun facilities and activities available on-site such as tennis courts, mini-golf or archery. And, if you go All Inclusive, many of these activities are free of charge! So you can get a whole lot of fun without having to put your hand in your pocket. If you’re travelling with infants or toddlers make sure the hotel offers cots, high chairs and baby food stations. Many of these hotels will also offer babysitting for children of a certain age, meaning you can head to the a la carte restaurant for a romantic meal with the kids taken care of.

Where's the cheapest place to go for a family holiday?

The cheapest destinations for family holidays vary, but Turkey hotels are great value for money - packed with all-day entertainment, whopping waterparks and food for the whole family. If some laidback family fun in the sun is more your vibe, then Majorca and Menorca are both great options too.

Where's the best place to go for a family holiday?

Family holidays are all about keeping everyone entertained. If you're travelling with the kids, we'd recommend somewhere close to the beach with mild temperatures so it's not too hot for the little ones. Spain and parts of Greece are both absolute classics when it comes to a family beach break.

Where are the cheapest holiday destinations?

Depending on the type of holiday you're looking for and the budget you have, there are plenty of destinations where you can get the most for your money.

We've got tons of budget-friendly breaks to beachy destinations such as the sunny coast of Spain and the Balearic Islands. If you're looking for an All Inclusive break where you get the most for your money, Turkey is a top pick, as they have a huge variety of resorts that are filled with fun for the whole family.

Our Top Tip!

Speaking from experience, we know snacks can save the day three times over. Why not get the kids involved with snacks based on the destination you're heading to? Heading to Spain?
