Sometimes, when you want to make memories with your kids, you don’t need to go big. All you need to do is find one of the best beaches to visit and sink your toes in the sand. I have taken numerous family vacations with my kids. And many of those vacations have included time spent at incredible beaches. So, I thought I would share some of the best beaches to visit on a family vacation with you. This way you can simply choose an amazing beach to visit from the start. And avoid any not-so-great beaches along the way.
There is nothing better than spending a family vacation on this beach with the wild horses. When you are not swimming, kayaking, or driving a vehicle on the sand, you can watch the horses from a distance. There are two main herds of horses. One herd lives on the Maryland side of the island. The others are on the Virginia side.
You can’t ride those horses. However, there are horses available to ride if you want to see the beach from a different perspective.
You can’t deny that the beaches in the Bahamas are magnificent. There are so many beaches to choose from depending on the island you are visiting. The soft sand on Paradise Island is perfect for families like yours. Although Pink Sand Beach on Harbour Island will beckon to you as well.
And the beach over on The Exumas might be the best one yet. This is due to the swimming pigs that live on the island.
You can never go wrong when visiting a beach on South Padre Island. There are multiple family activities on these beaches. So, you will have something to keep everyone from getting bored each day. Time in the water can be spent kiteboarding, swimming, and sailing. On land, you can walk along the shoreline collecting shells. Or you can build a sandcastle or two.
It shouldn’t be surprising that Myrtle Beach, South Carolina has made it to the list of best beaches to visit on a family vacation. This is one of the most popular beaches for school vacations. The boardwalk and promenade add to the excitement of spending days at the beach. Your entire family can ride the SkyWheel, play mini golf, and play a video game or two. Add in the live entertainment and fireworks and your kids may never want to leave.
The soft white sand on San Diego beaches will draw your kids there day after day. And yet, there is plenty of family activities for those days you don’t want to be in the water. When you are not swimming or building a sandcastle, you might find yourselves over in Balboa Park. There are 16 museums, as well as the San Diego Zoo at the park. LEGOLAND is not too far away either. Basically, this is an excellent beach to visit if you want options in between sun-filled beach days.
The beaches in Cancun are quite welcoming to families. Playa Maroma and Playa Delfines offer snorkeling, swimming, and dolphin watching. If you want to skip the crowds during your family vacation, I recommend heading over to Isla Mujeres. The beaches are not as crowded on that incredible island.
Poipu Beach Park is the best beach on the island of Kauai. This beach is divided in half by a sandbar. One side of the sandbar offers shallow water. This is perfect for little kids and those who really don’t want to spend their day swimming. The water on the other side is deeper. This is perfect for those kids who want to bodyboard.
Down on the southern end of Maui, you will find family friendly beaches like Wailea Beach. The water is calmer at this end of the island. The calm water is best for families who love to swim and snorkel. Families who love to surf will prefer the beaches on the northern shoreline. Surfing and windsurfing are best at Kanaha Beach and Ho’okipa Beach.
There are almost too many islands to count in Fiji, which means there are way more beaches to choose from. Once you decide which Fijian Island is perfect for your next family vacation, we can discuss which beaches should be on your list to visit. Who knows, you may even find yourself on the beach that was used in the movie Cast Away.
These are some of the best beaches to visit on a family vacation for National Flip Flop Day. As a travel advisor, I can help you choose a beach, or beaches, that would be perfect for your next family vacation.
