If you have young children, finding a vacation that actually feels like a vacation, rather than doing more of what you do at home, can be tricky. Some parents simply decide to stop vacationing all together, and stick to staycations until the kids are older and more independent.
But there’s no need to do that! While a vacation with small kids is never going to be a truly relaxing break, it can be a lot of fun, as long as you choose wisely.

Beach breaks are the classic kid-friendly vacation choice, and for good reason. It’s difficult for them to get bored when they have all day to make sandcastles, paddle about in the water, and enjoy the sea breeze in their hair. There are usually plenty of other kids around too, so they will be able to make new friends.
Choose your beach wisely, though. The best beaches for kids are those with calm, shallow waters, so you can safely take them for a swim. Avoid beaches with big breakers or currents.
Beach resorts generally have plenty of facilities for kids away from the beach too, including shallow, warm pools so even less confident swimmers can splash about, playgrounds and kids’ clubs.
