The only problem is finding the perfect destination for your family. But, if you get it right, the family fun-scale will be off the charts! Here’s our five destinations for 2019 to get you on your way!
Say Aloha to Maui! This island is becoming increasingly popular with tourists recently, and for good reason! This island is a tropical paradise which provides the ‘classic’ Hawaiian experience (think of strolling along white sand beaches, jumping around in clear blue waters and watching gorgeous sunsets) but also provides some of Hawaii’s greatest coastal routes. Your little explorers will love touring round this island and taking in the incredible nature – they’ll have a wail of a time whale-watching!
Isles of Scilly, Cornwall
If you’re looking for an exotic holiday that’s closer to home, look no further than the Isles of Scilly! This group of islands off the coast of Cornwall are is an unspoilt wonderland of beaches, coastal paths and quaint villages. Scilly is a great option for enjoying life’s simple pleasures, including spending time with your little ones! Aside from a few arts and crafts venues, indoor pools and kiddie’s play zones, there’s little to distract your family from roaming freely – cycling, swimming and playing your way to precious family memories!
The island of Cyprus has always been a family holiday favourite, and the city of Limassol proves why! It has everything you could possibly want for family holiday, sunny weather for sunbathing, waterparks for splashing, blue seas for swimming, historic sites for exploring, city life for shopping and beaches for… well, more sunbathing! You’ll love this place as much as your little tots will!
This island just off the coast of Malta is a special choice for a special family holiday! Unlike the main islands, Gozo has often been overlooked by tourists, and we can’t figure out why because it has so much to offer! Whether your littles ones want to feel like cowboys/girls and go horseback riding in the hills, little fishes snorkelling in the azure blue waters, or get cultural with a visit to the island’s ancient sites, Gozo has it all!
New Forest National Park, Hampshire
On the sunny south coast of England, lies the beautiful realms of the New Forest National Park. This place really does have everything to offer your family – it’s a wonderland of forests and pastures for your little ones to explore! This area is bonkers for biking with many cycling paths running through the park, it also has some great wildlife to spot, including the New Forest pony which can only be found there! The park is only a stone’s away from sandy beaches so you can get the best of a seaside holiday and a nature holiday wrapper into one!
