The beach. It’s the holy grail of family travel.

There's nothing kids love more than splashing around in the shallows, master-minding entire sand kingdoms (castles are so 2013) and perhaps even a spot of French cricket.

Whether you live thousands of miles from the nearest coastline, or there's a beach on your doorstep, there's nothing better than jetting off somewhere new and spending blissful days on the beach as a family.

Week after week spent stuck inside the house with over excited children on school vacation does not sound that appealing to us, so why not trade that in for a white-sand beach, warm turquoise waters, and a hotel with activities galore to keep the children busy, where the only worry you'll have is whether you've covered them in enough water-resistant sun cream. This is where our collection of family beach vacations in the sun comes in. Our travel consultants really know what they're talking about when it comes to family holidays, with a combined 33 children (and counting) between them. The hotels we offer are all tried-and-tested on said children, so when we say they're perfect for families, we know it's true.

We've found beach destinations that are perfect for sun-seeking families all year-round, so whatever time of year you're travelling, we've got you covered. That could mean a winter retreat in the Maldives, which contrary to popular belief isn't just for honeymooners; or Thailand, where you can combine beach time with exploration of the jungles, villages and paddy fields inland. For some summer sun, you can't beat the Mediterranean, with Greece, Sardinia and Cyprus (to name just a few) all boasting some brilliantly family-friendly hotels.
