It’s January and it is peak holiday planning time. I started this year with no trips booked and two weeks in and I might* have 6 trips in the diary with a couple more in the planning. With less going on in January I always find myself sat on the laptop watching the tv in the evening searching for that perfect break. I love travelling, adventures and exploring but I also love beaches and reading and swimming and relaxation, all of which you can achieve if you choose the right family friendly beach destination.
*OK I do have 6 trips booked!
So where is the right family friendly beach destination and how do I choose it?
On my list of things that I look for in a beach destination is really good summer weather, great sea temperatures ( my mini travellers love to swim in the sea or float about on flamingos and doughnuts) and family friendly attractions.
Crete (where we spent a week on our Summer holiday last year) ranks top in the very first Family Beach Index from On the Beach and it is easy to see why! Crystal clear waters, short flight, great summer temperatures and a variety of options from low budget to five star luxury. Crete also apparently boasts the highest number of family-friendly water and theme parks (there are 10) out of all destinations in the study, and enjoys average temperatures of 24* during the summer months.
The survey put together by On the Beach ranks family friendly beach destinations for best weather, warmest sea temperatures, shortest flight times, most family-friendly attractions, and best value for money.
The study was conducted by On the Beach to help families find their perfect beach break and you can see the full results of the study here!
Just putting this piece together and looking at images of the top ten destinations has made me want to book a beach trip in as soon as possible, what about you? Thankfully On the Beach have made booking that holiday budget-friendly with their really low deposit scheme which means that you can book your holiday from £30 per person (amazing for January when pay day seem too far away) and then split the cost up until two weeks before you fly.
