Are you dreaming of sun, sand, and relaxation during your next family vacation? If you just said yes, you may want to consider visiting an island in the Mediterranean Sea. There are quite a few breathtaking Mediterranean Islands for you to choose from. Each one will offer unique activities. And they will all allow you to make memories with your family as you spend precious time together.
One of the best Mediterranean Islands for luxurious vacations in Sardinia. This Italian getaway is where the Emerald Coast, or Costa Smeralda, is located. Choose one of the seaside resorts that offer a private beach for your family vacation. This will ensure you won’t need to wander too far for the perfect stretch of sand.
Of course, the beach isn’t the only highlight in Sardinia. The upscale boutiques are perfect for shopping adventures. And all the restaurants offer delicious Italian cuisine.
There are three islands within Malta. Each one offers history and stunning landscapes. One of the most popular activities in Malta is scuba diving. Military wreck sites dating back to WWII are directly off the coastline. Add in the underwater caves near Comino, and you may find yourself in the water more than you are out.
On land, you can explore ancient cathedrals and the Old City of Mdina. Although, if you are looking for solitude, head over to the island of Gozo. It is the Malta Island that is the most secluded.
Santorini is known for its romance. However, it is also the perfect option for a family vacation. Everyone will love visiting the black sand beaches. They make quite the statement with all the white buildings in the distance.
One of the best ways to explore Santorini is by hiking. A six-mile trail from Fira to Oia is the most popular. Hike along it to see as many of the traditional villages on the island as possible.
Croatia normally falls further down the list for family vacations in the Mediterranean. If you truly want to make your family vacation special, I recommend bumping Croatia up on the list. The island of Hvar is quite interesting.
Your days can be spent diving to wreck sites that date to the 1800s. Robinson’s Beach will have you avoiding the crowds. And the most spectacular sunset can be seen from Hula Hvar.

The island of Cyprus is actually part of the countries of Greece and Turkey. It is an excellent way to check two countries off your travel bucket list. In the northern parts of the island, you will discover castles and Old City Walls. Historical mosques and a 400-year-old Turkish Bath will be waiting for you in Nicosia.
Down south, it’s all about traditional villages and UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Choose the part of the island that will interest your family the most. Or explore it all while making those memories you know you will remember forever.
Another beautiful Italian island is Sicily. A family vacation here will include ancient history, delicious cuisine, and hikes to the craters of Mount Etna. Add in cable car rides and time on the beach, and Sicily may be your new go-to vacation destination.
The last breathtaking Mediterranean Island on my list is Corsica. This is the perfect island for your family if everyone loves hiking and the great outdoors. There are numerous hiking trails in Corsica. You can also wander through the Scandola Nature Reserve.
These are my favorite breathtaking Mediterranean Islands. You should consider visiting at least one of them for one of your future family vacations. Only you know which one your family will personally love. So, talk to them and figure it out. Then head out and make those memories with your kids. You won’t regret a moment of it.
