Finding a holiday spot that will accommodate your entire family is never easy. With so many different tastes out there, finding an area which everyone likes – or even where everyone feels safe – can sometimes be a nightmare. Here are five of the best family-friendly countries you can visit in 2017.
Belize stands out as one of the best tourist spots for a family with differing interests, with this Central American country possessing the perfect blend of leisure activities and culture.
Adrenaline junkies will certainly get their fill of excitement, thanks largely to activities which see you rappelling down cliffs or scaling waterfalls.
For the kids, a wide selection of resort beaches are also available, with exciting jungle-like spots often located just around the corner.
Mums and dads who appreciate a little history will also have their thirsts quenched by the countless Mayan temples and caves located there – all full of ancient artefacts. Sufficed to say, the entire family will find something to do here.
Oman isn’t one of the most prominent nations in Asia, but this neighbour of the United Arab Emirates has a wide array of tourist spots which will appeal to the entire family.
Beaches of beautiful white sand and perfectly clear water make this one of the most naturally beautiful locales in the whole of Asia, but for cheaper prices than some neighbouring nations.
Family camel trekking is another popular attraction, with you able to journey through the desert before camping Bedouin-style under the stars.
The region is incredibly peaceful, thankfully avoiding some of the conflicts which are currently gripping the Middle East. As well as that, the people in the area are incredibly friendly and are happy to make you feel as welcome as possible.
The United States is probably the ideal country for a family of tourists, with the gigantic nation offering a wider range of culture than practically any other country in the world.
One thing that’s universal in the US however, is their great love of rollercoasters. America has over 500 theme parks spread across the country and if you’re travelling with children then visiting a theme park can be a fun-filled, exciting experience for the whole family.
The States is a hub of culture, so whether you want to watch a sports game, visit a site of immense natural beauty, try out a historic tour or simply chill out on a beach, you’ll always find something to keep you entertained.
As 1Cover advise though, make sure to pick a family friendly hotel or holiday park. This will ensure there are plenty of things to keep the whole family entertained and some will even offer kids clubs or crèches.
Denmark is one of the most magical nations in the world, with it particularly appealing to kids thanks to the fairy-tale castles and bright colours that can be found all over the country.
Copenhagen in particular, stands out as a spot which the whole family will love, with the city playing host to two of the oldest amusement parks in the world, as well as the Blue Planet aquarium – which is famous the world over.
The city also has a science centre, a zoo and even a children’s museum. While some of that might not appeal to adults, the aforementioned castles provide a perfect break from kid-heavy activities, as you get to grips with some culture.
5 South Africa
South Africa is without question the best tourist spot in Africa for a family, with legendry wildlife preserves acting as a fantastic locale for the entire clan to get to grips with nature. Safaris are always fun, so why not try one out while you’re there?
As well as that, like any good family holiday, beaches are also aplenty in South Africa – with Cape Town possessing not only this, but also the famous Table Mountain and Cape Winelands.
Sun City – Africa’s most popular family resort – is also situated in South Africa, with this holiday destination providing a plethora of fun for the whole family.
These are just five of the most family friendly destinations to check out in 2017. Why not head to one next year for a fun-filled and memorable holiday?
