Best Destinations for Families


Booking a family holiday can be difficult, you need to hit the perfect balance between something the kids will enjoy and something that is still enjoyable and relaxing for you! Choosing your destination doesn’t have to be a headache waiting to happen, take a look at our top destinations for that family holiday that everyone can enjoy!

1. Cyprus

With breath-taking beaches and ancient history to explore, Cyprus is a winning destination for spring and summer. Parents and older children will enjoy exploring the ruins of past times, with the UNESCO World Heritage Site Tomb of the Kings and Paphos mosaics dating back to Roman times.

Keep the kids happy with a trip to Waterworld, the biggest themed waterpark in Europe. Thrill seekers can enjoy the heart-racing Drop to Atlantis, while smaller children can enjoy the Atlantis Activity Pool. You’ll find us bobbing along the Odyssey River topping up our tans!

2. Mallorca

Only a 2-3 hour flight from the UK, Mallorca is an ideal destination for families. From caves and castles to waterparks, the largest of the Balearic Islands provides plenty of distractions that can entertain the whole family.

Older children to contend with? Mallorca offers a huge range of water sports to keep them occupied from scuba diving to paddle boarding. Not for you? Watch them from the safety of the beach with a sangria (you have to appreciate the local culture, right?)

With an average of 10 hours of sunshine a day in spring and summer, Lanzarote is a winning destination for adults and children alike, especially if you are looking for something slightly out of the ordinary!

4. Ibiza

While you may have experienced Ibiza before the little ones came along, you could visit the other side of the notorious party island for a relaxed, family-friendly experience!

Beautiful beaches make the ideal setting for picnics and barbeques and you can always burn off those extra calories by hiring a pedalo and spotting fish in the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean.

5. Zakynthos

Head to the Greek island of Zakynthos for a chilled family beach holiday and enjoy warm waters, stunning beaches and secluded hideaways.

Zakynthos is home to the endangered Loggerhead Turtle, so depending on the time of year you visit you could experience a glimpse of hatching turtles or you may spot one by heading to the sea in a pedalo! You can also visit the Navagio shipwreck hidden on one of the best beaches in the world – make it more entertaining for the kids by booking a trip out on one of the pirate ships where the crew don fancy dress to make an enjoyable family day out!
