Beautiful beaches to enjoy on your family holidays
For many of us the ideal ‘get away from it all’ holiday involves some very simple ingredients. The recipe for a great holiday is often based around the classic beachside location, along with a decent helping of sun, sea and golden sand.
This is why when you open up any holiday brochure or click onto a holiday website you’ll see picture after picture of long swathes of beautiful beaches nestling next to clear blue waters under sunny skies.
Although every picture tells a story, not all of those images reveal the key beach features, such as if the water is safe for children or ideal for windsurfing .So wherever you are going for your holiday it is a good idea to find out which beaches might best suit what you are looking for; be it peace and quiet, sports activities, bars or other things of interest to do nearby. Check out these beautiful beach destinations.
