Getting away with the family for a holiday is a must at least once a year. Just having the time away from work and spending quality time is reason enough but once you factor in the chance to create memories for life the opportunity should rarely be passed up. But where do you go for family holidays? Here are five great destinations for a break.
Bulgaria is rapidly becoming a popular destination for families due to the miles of coastline and the clement weather. Another benefit of holidays in Bulgaria is the rich history and fascinating culture. Many of the beaches are relatively quiet and with great value for money, visitors are rewarded with a fun filled break at a great price. Tourism is currently burgeoning meaning that the facilities for families such as swimming pools and activity rooms for the kids are becoming mainstays in many of the hotels along the Bulgarian coast.
Turkey has for some time now been a firm favourite for family holidays. Once again beaches in Turkey are sublime offering the tourist the delights of the warm Mediterranean and Aegean waters. Aside from the coast however there is a massive array of cultural sites such as ancient ruins and a rich, mouth watering cuisine. Whilst prices are rising, tourists can still experience a good value holiday and a well established tourist industry.
Whilst it may seem a suggestion from left field, Lithuania should be considered as a worthwhile destination for a break with your loved ones. A relatively small country, Lithuania can still boast over sixty miles of gorgeous beaches and a fascinating history. In terms of climate Lithuania experiences long evenings although temperatures are similar to those in the UK during the summer. At just two and a half hours away by plane the flight shouldn’t even be a problem for younger travellers.
Croatia has been a popular tourist destination for centuries due to the astounding coastline, well preserved national parks and stunning coves where a secluded swim can be taken. In addition, the wealth of Roman ruins in Croatia makes the country an exciting destination for history lovers. With a Mediterranean climate the waters are warm and ideal for bathing and just lounging on the beach.
Finally, while the weather cannot be relied upon it is always worth taking family holidays in the UK. The UK coastline is stunningly beautiful and parts of the south west offer the tourist a truly unique landscape. The added benefit of holidaying at home is that it can be done fairly cheap and for those travelling with youngsters, can be close enough to home for comfort.
Hopefully the preceding five destinations have provided the reader with some ideas of where they could take family holidays. With such a wealth of destinations throughout Europe, it is easy to find a destination that suits all members of the brood.
