Best kid-friendly beaches

Sparkling beaches, a gentle breeze, turquoise sea and verdant tropical landscapes: this is what the average tourist thinks about when planning to go on vacation and leave everything behind. However, your trip may be not that easy if you’re bringing your children with you. In addition, not all resorts and beaches are properly equipped to let the whole family enjoy the beauty of a tropical vacation, and not all of them provide children’s entertainment.

Siesta Beach, Florida

Best Kid-Friendly Beaches. California Coast near Carmel

California Coast near Carmel

Siesta Beach is a perfect vacation destination for  families with kids. The beaches are equipped with playgrounds for little children and volleyball courts for older kids to enjoy.  This destination has something for the whole family. Of course, the area’s major attraction is its sand, which is so white and so fine and so clean that it is considered some of the best in the country. Enjoy a pleasant getaway with blue water, areas for family picnics and a white-sand coastline.

Praia de Barranco, Algarve, Portugal

If you travel with children, you probably know how hard it can be to keep kids busy and keep them from acting up or hurting themselves. If you want to do something fun with your children, we suggest trying a sport. If you are interested in golf, tennis, or water sports we recommend Praia de Barranco beach, which is an ideal destination for those who love active holidays.  Here your children will definitely enjoy the Pine Cliffs’ kids’ club, the Pirate Club, and Pine Cliffs Residence.

Carmel Beach, Carmel-by-the-Sea, California

Best Kid-Friendly Beaches. California Coast near Carmel.

California Coast near Carmel.

With its fine white sand and clear water, this slice of paradise contains a one-mile coastline where you can relax and have fun. Kids have the opportunity to build sand castles, swim in the crystal-clear sea, or splash in the usually tame water.

Carmel Beach is also animal-friendly, and it’s an amazing spot to bring your dogs; along the coast you’ll see owners tossing tennis balls and romping with their furry pals. Note that the weather is not always perfect here, being quite chilly from May to August; however, there are some sunny days mixed in. Fall and winter here are just perfect for family vacations. Parking, especially during summer months and on weekends, can be a challenge, as the official parking lot isn’t that big.

Horseshoe Bay Beach, Bermuda

Best Kid-Friendly Beaches. Bermuda Horseshoe Bay beach scene empty without any tourists.

Located in Southampton Parish, Horseshoe bay Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. If you go to its western side, you will find a cove embowed by cliffs, known as Baby Beach. This beach has shallow water and is perfect for diving and snorkeling. It is equipped with a cafe, bathrooms and shower facilities just off the beach. You can also easily rent lounge chairs, umbrellas, and snorkel gear. Diverse souvenirs and gifts are sold here, and wi-fi is also available for visitors.

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 2.

Read more on "The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 2." »

Some islands are special thanks to their biodiversity — their flora and fauna are exceptional and can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. Other islands are unique for the sites that they contain. Others are famous for their stories, or the customs and traditions of the local population. Check out this list of the most exciting islands in the world (part 2).

Islas Flotantes (floating islands)

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 2. Totora reed floating islands Uros, lake Titicaca, near Puno, Peru.

Totora reed floating islands Uros, lake Titicaca, near Puno, Peru

The incredible Islas Flotantes (floating islands) in South America are Lake Titicaca’s main tourist attraction. Although their popularity has led to massive over-commercialization, there is still nothing quite like them anywhere else in the world. The biggest island has several buildings, including a school, post office and an overabundance of souvenir shops.

The locals of the islands are called Uros. There are about 2000 of them on the islands. The Islas Flotantes are protected within the Bay of Puno. For many years locals were separated and isolated from the world, which has influenced their life and traditions. Always a small tribe, the Uros now are one of the most famous populations in the world due to their unique floating home.

Their main activities are fishing and weaving and, as these islands have become extremely popular among tourists, now they are also involved in this activity. They also hunt birds such as seagulls, ducks and flamingos.

Easter Island

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 2. South America. Easter Island. Mountains. Statues.

Easter Island, a Chilean island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, is one of the most incredible and popular islands in the world. It is extremely famous for its monumental statues, called moai. It’s creators, the Rapa Nui people, speak both the traditional Rapa Nui language and the first and main language of the island, Spanish.  

The main reason why tourists keep coming to this island are the 887  monumental statues. They are considered to be mysterious, as no one knows exactly how these large statues were made by the people who lived here without modern instruments and technology to create and transport the statues. The biggest one, called Paro, was about 10 metres (33 ft) high and weighed 82 tons. The statues represent human figures and were named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995.  However, the island has a lot more to offer for its tourists, including gorgeous beaches, rocky caves, beautiful volcanoes, archeology sites, and the main town of Easter Island, Hanga Roa.

Raja Ampat

View over Pianemo. Fam, Raja Ampat, Indonesia.

Raja Ampat, meaning Four Kings, is an island in the heart of the Coral Triangle. It has the highest marine diversity in the world (data from Conservation International); 75% of the world’s coral species have been recorded here, along with 1,430 species of reef fish and six of the world’s seven marine turtle species.

Raja Ampat is known as one of the world’s last wild places. This tropical island has the most amazing fauna and flora in the world. Its marine nature is amazing and will astonish you with its diversity. An environmental paradise for numerous fish species that are threatened with extinction elsewhere on the planet, Raja Ampat is the ideal holiday destination to enjoy a tropical hideaway. Here you can experience an unforgettable cultural vacation at a reasonable price. Note that the local economy along with the traditional owners of Raja Ampat are intensifying their efforts to preserve their environment and cultural heritage and traditions.

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 1

Usedom, an Island of ‘Singing’ Sand

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 1

Germans are well-known for their perfectionism and obsession with everything being made to the highest standards. Their beaches and islands are not an exception. Searching for the perfect getaway, they tend to travel all over the world, forgetting that their own country has a perfect beach in a remote hideaway by the Baltic Sea. This European paradise is called Usedom, but is widely known as “Singing Island”. Its gorgeous sand is so fine that it squeals when you walk on it. This peaceful white-sand seaside is two and a half hours from Berlin.

With landscaped verdant promenades, sparkling beaches, royal history and multiple spas, Usedom has become a true tourist magnet in recent years, which is wonderful, as the idea of walking on a beach with “singing sand” is extremely fascinating.

Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 1

Palm Jumeirah are three artificial islands, Palm Jumeirah, Deira Island and Palm Jebel Ali, which are located in the territory of the United Arab Emirates. The islands were built beginning in June 2001, and now Palm Island is one of the most exciting artificial islands in the world, as it is made in the shape of a palm. This island has a tree trunk and a crown with 16 fronds. The island’s surface is five kilometers by five kilometers. Adding 78 kilometers to the Dubai coastline, this island looks incredible from overhead. The construction of Palm Jebel Ali started in October 2002 and was intended to finish in 2015.

Palm Jumeirah was constructed totally from sand and rocks (interestingly, concrete and steel were not used to make the island, which is incredible). The Palm Jumeirah is a project of  the Prince of Dubai, as it was his idea and design.

La Isla de la Muñecas, Mexico (Island of the Dolls)

The World’s Most Incredible and Surprising Islands: Part 1

Located south of Mexico City, this island wasn’t a major tourist destination, and it would never have become one but for one unexpected event. Over fifty years ago, Don Julian Santana left his wife and child and decided to live alone on the island on Teshuilo Lake in the Xochimilco canals.  He once wasn’t able to save a young girl he saw drowning in the lake, and, feeling guilty, he put her doll on a tree to pay his respects for this girl. Some say the girl didn’t exist, and others insist that Don Julian Santana just imagined her in order to not feel lonely. In any case, since then, the island has become known as Isla de las Munecas (Island of the Dolls).

After the death of Don Julian Santana the island became extremely popular among tourists, who found hundreds of dolls on trees throughout the island. Many visitors come here with new dolls, though the old ones can look extremely terrifying, especially in the dark.
