Ruth Richards’ Top 5 Best Family-Friendly Beach Resorts in the World

Today’s featured guest post writer is Ruth Richards from The Holiday Place.
For those traveling with family, a beach resort can make the ideal holiday destination. Kicking back with a good book or getting down to work with a bucket and spade is the best way to get away from the stresses of work and spend quality time with your loved ones, and thankfully, there are endless options across the world.
Let’s take a look at five of what I consider to be the best family-friendly beach resorts. My workplace and I have picked these five based on our own personal experiences, our future travel plans, and recommendations from high quality sources in the travel field.
Long Beach, Mauritius
Mauritius holidays are synonymous with relaxing beaches and taking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Long Beach may be a relatively new resort, but it is advanced in its offerings. You’ll find sunshine, amazing architecture, and maybe even an insight into tropical sea life. Take lots of sun cream, as the temperatures really soar during peak season. While I’ve never visited this one, it’s been on my family’s to-do list for quite some time, and we can’t wait for the opportunity to see it up-close and personal.
Coral Bay, Cyprus
Coral Bay is known for its long, sandy beaches, and the shallow and calm waters make it the perfect choice for those traveling with little ones. Paphos, the historical centre of the area, is just a short bus journey away, meaning that you can easily combine culture with relaxation. It’s no wonder that Teletext Holidays include Coral Bay in their top ten destinations. I’ve personally visited this beach, and I’ll definitely be returning in the near future!
Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts
Massachusetts is a state of the east coast of the United States, full of pleasant beaches. One of my personal favourites is the beach at Martha’s Vineyard. Quite literally an old vineyard on the beach that has been updated with modern facilities, this location is a truly unique corner of the globe that offers a holiday like no other. As well as blue seas, there are plenty of activities to keep children occupied. It’s also a favourite of Forbes, so you can be sure that it comes recommended from those in the know.
Cala Capra, Sardinia
Cala Capra is situated on the east coast of Sardinia, and benefits from two calm bays and stunning views across the waters. Situated on a tiny peninsula, it’s like a little piece of heaven away from the busier resorts. There are many trees for offering shade from the midday heat, and there’s an excellent selection of restaurants, cafes, and watersports. Make sure that you sample the local cuisine, which is one of the reasons why many people return year after year. The beach of Le Saline is just 200m away, and is also worth a visit when you’re in the area.
Siesta Key, Florida
Siesta Key is widely regarded as one of the best beaches in the whole of the USA. There are lifeguards present throughout the year, and lots in the way of activities and family friendly eateries and picnicking areas. As you’d imagine from Florida, the shops are pretty good too. Take your plastic and treat yourself a little! I’ve visited this beach several times, and can vouch for the fun atmosphere that you’ll always find here.
Will you be taking a beach holiday this year? Which of these destinations will you be considering?
