It’s a must-see for those seeking the tranquility of a truly gorgeous Costa Rican beach. A gorgeous crushed conch shell beach and turquoise water with volcanic rocks bordering the bay, Conchal is truly a perfect family vacation destination.

Resort town Neos Marmaras on the other hand spreads across a rocky cape flanked by 2 popular beaches, each lined with bars and seafood grill restaurants. Pine forest trails lead up coastal hills to a viewpoint at Dragondelis peak, and to the ancient Byzantine mountain village Parthenonas. The summer season is marked by folk festivals with live music and street parades, and boats ferry visitors to swim off uninhabited Kelifos Island.

Bali, Indonesia 

Bali is the most popular island holiday destination in the Indonesian archipelago. It’s home to an ancient culture that’s known for its warm hospitality as well as exotic temples and palaces set against stunning natural backdrops. Dining in Bali presents endless choices of exotic, local cuisine. After sunset, famous nightspots come to life offering exciting clubbing and packed dance floors.

Inland, towering volcanoes and pristine jungles offer plenty to see and do, but you won’t want to stay away from the coastline for long. Popular beach resorts include Kuta, Seminyak and Jimbaran where many of the finest hotels and villas look over world-class surf spots.

For tranquil seascapes and sunrises, Sanur, Nusa Dua and remote Candidasa are your best bets. Bali’s lesser travelled eastern and northern regions also offer wonderful diving spots in calm bays, with coral gardens teeming with colourful marine biodiversity.

Whitefish, Montana, USA

Whitefish is a resort town in the Rocky Mountains of northwest Montana. It’s a gateway to the jagged peaks, lakes and glacier-carved valleys of Glacier National Park.

Downtown, shops and eateries line Central Avenue make it ideal for family vacation.

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

Towering 1,086 metres over Cape Town, Table Mountain is the most iconic landmark in South Africa and reaching the summit of this famous mountain is something that every visitor should do.

For older and more active kids, the summit can be reached on foot via a number of beautiful trails. Walking from the base to the top should take between one and three hours. Once you reach the top, simply relax and take in the spectacular scenic views of Cape Town, Table Bay and the surrounding mountains, then take the cableway back down.

Closing our top 7 family vacation destinations list that you will live to remember is Siem Reap in Cambodia. It is number one family-friendly destination in Cambodia. The compact city – more a town – is packed full of hotels that have facilities dedicated to children, such as Memoir Palace Resort and Spa, Courtyard by Marriott Siem Reap Resort and Golden Temple Hotel. It’s worth checking before booking what services they offer, including babysitting and play parks, to daily activities and mini-trips.
