Planning family holidays can be complicated when trying to find the right combination of activities for adults and children. Luckily, a new study by travel experts Sovereign has revealed the best locations to travel with family, emphasizing the destinations that have the best assortment of entertainment, beaches and spas, and sights to experience.
Destinations include Sardinia, Italy, which boasts over 370 white sand beaches for maximum relaxation for parents and 271 sports and recreational attractions for the kid. The island also features historical attractions, such as the Nuragic ruins, and the shipwrecks off the coast of Cagliari, which can be explored on scuba diving tours.
The Dominican Republic, aside from magnificent beaches, also includes a variety of geographical features across the country, as well as hiking, surfing and shady bays once conquered by pirates. Also, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is a great family destination with the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and immense shopping centers, as well as aquariums and ski slopes. Also, Crete, Greece, former home to the labyrinth with its minotaur, is great for local food and hikes along the snowy mountains.
