The Maldives and Families aren't two words you often hear strung together in the same sentence. After all, children and honeymooners don't mix too well. However, there are now some excellent family friendly resorts, with features such as two-bedroom over-water villas, kids clubs and even over-water villas with slides.
In our opinion the Maldives is best for older families with kids aged between 6-12 and teenagers. Younger children can be accommodated, we feel they'd be better off somewhere with more space to run around such as Mauritius. For older kids, there is superb snorkelling available from the beach, in addition to Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Windsurfing. The Maldives also combine perfectly with a family adventure in Sri Lanka
