The world is packed with great places to visit, but there are some destinations that feel as if Nature designed them for families to just explore and get the very best out of. While many places get cold and unbearable, there are still very lovely places around the globe to enjoy all year around. If you’re thinking of an all inclusive holiday away with the family, here are three destinations you might want to consider. These lovely islands are located in the lovely and temperate region in the Mediterranean.
Ibiza – Off Spain Mainland
Ibiza never fails to delight. Sometimes it feels as if this Balearic Island was formed for the sole purpose of entertainment, in fact. Ten pin bowling, go karting and crazy golf are on the offering, and then there are beaches like Playa d’en Bossa which have made the island a smash hit.
Banana boating and pedalo-ing are all part of the Ibiza experience when you visit with the family. Add windsurfing, sailing, parasailing and diving to those if you’re a family of adventurers. There are also a number of water parks on the island, so you’re never short of somewhere to bathe or cool off.
Majorca – East of Spain Mainland
Majorca has long been a favorite of holidaymakers, thanks to aspects like an average temperature of 77°F (25°C) in August. Then there are the sandy bays of Alcudia and Port Pollença, which set the scene for a lovely family day out at the beach and a whole load of relaxation!
Head to Palma Nova in the West of the island and, as well as all the beaches you can handle, there are water parks, the Palma Aquarium and crazy golf– are you as much of a match for the kids as you think you are on the golf course!
In Majorca, you can go on glass-bottomed boat rides and gaze at marine life as it swims under your boat. If you prefer to stay on dry land, you can take a bike through the Parc Natural d S’Albufera. The park is also a natural birdwatching territory, so have some binoculars handy if you’re a nature lover.
Kos – Greek Island
You can’t beat an island adventure! You can savor the views across to Turkey from the ancient site of Asklieipion, the most important site on the island. Other historic attractions you might want to visit on the island include the 15th century Castle of the Knights, which unlike other castles sits by the harbor rather than on a hilltop. You can actually walk along the outer walls for another view of Turkey.
For a day trip from the island, take a boat out to Nissyros and see a live volcano. The volcano itself is quite safe, since it has been inactive for around 16 000 years. If you walk around on the crater floor, you can feel the force of boiling water beneath your feet!
These are three action-packed vacation ideas that would suit families who are looking for both sunshine and adventure. Make the most of both to spend some quality together with your loved ones.
