Planning a vacation with kids is typically never not stressful.
Packing for extra people, keeping excited little ones calm in an airport and the endless running and running and running around the edge of the pool.
However, there are so many family-friendly options to help you beat the stress. Here are a few destinations that you may consider visiting.
Europe may be small in land mass, but it packs so much into space with 50 nations all varying in culture, climate and history. As such, you are sure to be able to find somewhere that all the family will enjoy.
If you’re looking for an adventure holiday then why not head to Austria, France or Italy where you can try your hand at skiing during the winter months? If you want a beach break then you may consider heading to Spain, Croatia or Bulgaria where you will get temperatures of around 86 °F in the summer months.
With so many places to visit with your family, you may be spoilt for choice so Europe tours are a perfect way to explore your destination in depth. You could experience the highlights of Turkey or Greece or see the Northern Lights in Finland! Europe is the perfect playground for children with plenty of parks, museums, zoos and child-friendly activities wherever you visit.
Australia is full of natural landscapes and diverse cities, making it an amazing destination for the whole family.
Heading to Sydney is great if you want to explore the beautiful beaches and learn more about the history of the country with Aboriginal tours and wildlife experiences available. Sydney is also home to Bondi Beach where you can go snorkelling, swimming and surfing or just relax!
Canberra is known as Australia’s kid-friendly capital, so this could be perfect if you are travelling with younger ones. Here you will find world-class museums, galleries and plenty of cultures.
Bali is brilliant for families due to the gorgeous beaches and interesting culture. Nusa Dua is one of the preferred places if you are travelling as a family. It is home to top resorts with plenty to keep your children entertained as well as big international chain hotels and restaurants.
Kuta is another popular area to stay in Bali and it is always busy. Of course, you can find beaches here but the main attraction tends to be Waterbom Bali – an amazing waterpark! If you are travelling with very young kids, you may want to avoid this area as it is the party capital of the island.
If you and your kids love the outdoors, then Costa Rica may be the place for your next vacation. As one of the most biodiverse places in the world, Costa Rica has almost 250 species of animals and 800 types of birds.
You can head on wildlife tours and visit rehabilitation centres and see the animals out in the wild which is an amazing experience for people of any age!
Costa Rica also has some gorgeous beaches and waterfalls with some of the best family-friendly beach towns being Playa Samara in the Guanacaste Province and Esterilos Oeste on the Central Pacific coast.
