So if you want some more ideas, here are the destinations you’ve probably been ignoring up until now.

Cape Town, South Africa

If you want to get active with your family when you travel, it’s definitely worth considering Cape Town in South Africa. It’s home to some of the most stunning natural wonders in the world, not least Table Mountain. You can hike up it and see what the city looks like from up there. Boulders Beach is simply beautiful too, so don’t overlook this hidden gem of a city.


Bermuda is full of family-friendly hotels and activities, and you’ll find it very easy to get to as well. All of those things are important for families, so if you’re looking for a safe and approachable kind of location in a stunning part of the world, this is the best option. You can explore the Crystal Caves, visit the zoo or simply spend all your time on the beach.

Vienna, Austria


Vienna is one of those locations that really takes your breath away when you walk around it for the first time. There are plenty of grand and luxurious hotels that are perfect for families, such as Imperial Riding School Renaissance Vienna Hotel. And you can see the culture and history of the city on every street. There’s plenty of modern activities to keep kids entertained too though, so there’ll be something for everyone in your family.

Faroe Islands

If you’re looking for a location that’s low key, quaint and quiet, there are few places better than the Faroe Islands. They’re close to Denmark, and you won’t find a more sleepy or peaceful spot anywhere else in Europe, so if that’s the kind of thing that appeals to you, check it out. There are plenty of activities to do, from water-based activities to hiking and walking.

Big Sur, California

Big Sur might not be the most obvious destination in the state of California, but it’s one that you should certainly consider. It doesn’t have the glamour of Los Angeles, but maybe that’s for the best. Big Sur is a child-friendly hot-spot with some of the most beautiful beaches and coves you’ll find anywhere in America. Limekiln State Park is also great for exploring with the family.
