Holiday Type / Family Beach Holidays

Family beach holidays carry with them a nostalgia that conjures memories of crooked sandcastles and salty hair drying under the warmth of a foreign sky. This list isn’t just about the best beaches; our collection of luxury family beach holidays seeks to deliver memories that transcend the traditional and inspire your children’s imagination. Think direct beach access where large family rooms spill out onto stretches of powder-soft sand and mornings start with the warm tide gently lapping at your toes. After an al fresco family breakfast, spend lazy sunny days reclined on the beach savouring the warmth, while your little ones plant their own coral or learn about the local flora and fauna on a castaway adventure to a private island. Or, take a family yachting expedition to nearby coves and snorkel through peaceful lagoons before a playful evening of watersports in the surf. Return home refreshed with sun-soaked memories and children alight with the joy of days spent by the ocean.

Yes, the sand is exceedingly white and powdery, the service is genuinely superb and the location between the majestic Pitons within a UNESCO World Heritage Site makes this the premier address on St Lucia, but there is much more to this exceptional beachfront resort than first meets the eye. From sampling gourmet fare in the ...
