When it comes to finding the best family holiday destination, you’ve got to think about the needs of everyone travelling. Some families love to be on the go all the time and look forward to exploring, while others like a quiet one relaxing on the beach, and some families are simply looking for a last minute bargain. What does your family enjoy?

The Balearic Islands are ideal for low key holidays with kids, with Menorca offering plenty of resorts with specialised kids’ areas. If you’re travelling with older children or teens, Majorca might be more to your tastes, with a great mix of beach life, water parks and day trips. The Canary Islands also offer a winning combo of attractions and gorgeous beaches, while Croatia is another contender offering fascinating cities and seaside resorts.

Those wishing to venture further afield should consider Mexico and the increasingly popular Cancun. With silvery slivers of sand, fascinating Mayan ruins and water sports on the agenda, it’s the perfect destination for tweens and teens, plus the hotels often have supervised kids’ clubs so parents can get a well deserved break, too.

We have to mention family holidays to Florida – the place where all your dreams come true. Days filled with adventure and fun for all the family, as well as the chance to meet your favourite characters. What could be better?

If you’re looking for a family holiday on a budget, there are plenty of destinations packed with child-friendly resorts and hotels perfect for the family at affordable prices. Starting with one of the Balearic islands, Majorca is a great all-rounder offering the promise of plenty of fun and days out, and there are three great big water parks!

The Algarve is another wallet-friendly option for your family holiday with long stretches of sand, kid-friendly attractions such as Zoomarine, and a welcoming atmosphere on its side. Plus, it’s just under a 3 hour flight so you just watch your favourite film and then you’ll be there!

For sunshine breaks, we’d look to Tenerife. With its year-round sunshine and the famous Siam Park, it’s a hard one to beat. You’ll also find the local restaurants serve a tempting mix of local cuisine and child-friendly favourites such as burger and chips.

Finally, fast scaling to the top of affordable family breaks is Bulgaria. Resorts such as Sunny Beach, with its fairground attractions, Blue Flag beaches and nearby historic sights, make it a great destination for an action-packed family holiday.

If you’ve got little ones, it’s important to consider the flight and transfer times. As we all know, travelling can be a bit stressful (especially with young ones!) so it’s always a good idea to be prepared. Also, checking the temperature and weather forecast in destinations can help you decide where to go on your family holiday, as well as if there is plenty to do in and around the hotel for all of you. This will also help you to pack the right things for everyone so you can keep entertained on the journey, leaving you with no mishaps on holiday!

When it comes to deciding on your family holiday, have a think about what you really enjoy doing on holiday, what your budget is and how far you’re willing to travel. If you want fun, beaches and the occasional day trip – but not too far – then Spain and its sun-drenched Costas could be the way to go, especially with preschool kids. Greece and her islands are also popular, with the likes of Rhodes and Corfu as annual favourites.

Italy is also ideal for family holidays, whether you want to see historic monuments such as the Trevi Fountain in Rome or relax on the Amalfi Coast. If you’re after something more exotic, Turkey enthrals with sandy spots and colourful bazaars offering an appealing mix of attractions and plenty of water sports. Or for an all-out cultural adventure, consider Thailand, where you and the kids can explore the streets of Bangkok or spend the day with the elephants of Chiang Mai.

If you’re still not too sure, simply head to the destinations menu at the top of the page and read through a variation to see which destination sounds most suited to you.
