family beach vacationFamily beach vacations are a right of passage for most families. Sun and surf offer kids hours of entertainment. While the kids are occupied, hopefully mom and dad get enjoy a few minutes of peace. Whether your family is trying to escape the cold of a northern winter or hitting the waves during summer vacation there is much to consider when planning when taking your kids to the beach.

All beaches are not created equal. The best beach in the world might just be the one that is closest or easiest to reach for your family. The black sands of Pacific beaches offer a completely different vibe from the Azure waters and white sands of the Caribbean. Does your family need a protected waters for little swimmers or are your teens looking for surfing waves and sail board winds? Some beaches are better for snorkeling while others are best for sailing. Does your family want a private palapa with butler or a hammock tied between the palms. Giving some thought to your family's lifestyle, needs and wish list will help in your search for the perfect beach.

Nature is always evolving. Geography, seasons and weather can quickly change any beach and effect your family beach vacation. Travlers may have reported a beach full of seaweed in an online review during their vacation. This may be a normal occurance or it may have only happened that particulare week due to recent storms in the area churning up the waters. Do you enjoy the adventure of sharing the beach with local creatures and sea life or are you the type that prefers a man made swimming cove and soft sand under foot? Our Vacationkids travel agents have heard it all. Normally the beaches we recommend are all beaches we have visited with our own families. We can confidently help you find the best family beach vacation that will live up to your family's needs and expectations.
