Family Friendly Holidays in the Sun
Family Friendly Holidays in the Sun: The beach provides the best holiday fun for both adults and children.
From enjoying a good book in the sun, to building sand castles by the sea, eating ice cream to riding the waves; a sun soaked beach in a beautiful setting is always a popular destination for holiday makers.
Lamu Island in Kenya
The magical experience of Lamu starts when you leave the plane at the neighbouring Manda Island airstrip.
The island has no vehicles because there are no roads, so you can be sure that your adventure won’t be tainted with the sound of traffic.
Activities for both children and adults on the Island include watching turtles hatch at dawn, searching the long golden beach for sand dollars and fishing from a dhow.
Further, a walk along the narrow alleys of the old town is very refreshing.
You can peep through holes in ornate Moorish doors to admire basket weavers, woodcarvers and silversmiths at work.
However, far from being a step back into yesteryear – the island is also well accommodated with the modern hotels.
Sardinia in Italy
In addition to its spectacular beaches, Sardinia is home to many scenic and historical tourist attractions.

Children enjoy taking short walks to explore these areas, especially its Iron Age fortresses and Neolithic tombs.
Further, the Maddalena Islands and Caprera Island have many attractions for the children including the ferry ride, beautiful remote beaches, tranquil forests and wildlife at the national park.
