Family Holidays in August 2016

July and August brings the school summer holidays, peak prices and crowds, but there are ways to beat the system. Flight prices tend to be cheaper for the last two weeks of August and it always pays to book early, with cheaper air fares and better availability if you book as early as December, January or February.

One of the greatest challenges facing families is the search for a holiday that makes mum and dad happy as well as the children. In any given family, somebody will want to be out surfing, another exploring cultural sites and the kids would be happy hanging by the pool all day, and of course you’ll want something that you can all do happily together.

In Croatia, the Dubrovnik Sun Gardens Hotel offers superb sporting facilities, pools and activities for the kids, a 10 minute boat transfer into beautiful Dubrovnik old town and the opportunity to explore the nearby Elaphiti Islands by Sea Kayak and snorkel. In Morocco, Rebali Riads offers the privacy of a villa, with on-site spa, a wild Atlantic beach, surfing lessons for the more active members of the family and one of Morocco’s most beautiful, charismatic and relaxed Cities, Essaouira, just 20 minutes’ drive away. Also in Morocco, Paradis Plage offers a more traditional beach resort but with a modern twist, with a superb surf school and yoga studio on site, beach cinema and atmospheric fire-pit.
