What Makes a Great Family Holiday?

Everyone has their own ideas. For some, its all about spending quality time together. For others, it's an opportunity for every member of the family to do their own thing. But one thing's for sure. No-one knows their way around family holidays better than Eden's Travel Directors. Here's just a selection of their family friendly favourites.

Eden's Kids' Concierge

​Organising the perfect family holiday takes lots of planning, so let Eden’s Kids’ Concierge arrange everything, from interconnecting rooms, child-friendly restaurants and babysitting, to experiences the entire family can enjoy together.

Long Haul


Indian Ocean, Arabia & Asia

The isles of the Indian Ocean and the enchanting lands of Arabia and Asia… all have a reputation for dream-like beaches, astonishing natural beauty. But they can also be the ideal holiday destination for the whole family – even young children. Pristine sand, safe swimming in lagoons the temperature of bath water, fascinating wildlife… there’s plenty for the kids to enjoy. And that’s without the growing number of family-friendly luxury resorts. If they love swimming, the Indian Ocean has some of the best places in the world to learn to snorkel or scuba around the spectacular coral reefs while mystical Arabia and Asia are rife with adventure too.

Caribbean, Mexico & North America

The Caribbean Islands and Mexican resorts on the Gulf and Pacific Coasts are among the finest family-friendly destinations in the world. After all, what could be more appealing than white coral sands, palm-fringed beaches, crystal-clear waters, lilting music and friendly faces? The ambience of the region is perfect for small children, friendly and fun. Teenagers seem to find the laid-back way of life really appealing too. Add nature’s beauty and year-round warm weather, and the case for coming here just gets better and better.

Meanwhile over in the US, whether you love its theme parks or not, Orlando, the fun capital of the world has the ability to put a smile on your kids' faces like nowhere else on earth, with a smart downtown area and remarkable shopping that will keep grown-ups happy too.

South Africa

​South Africa’s biggest attractions are truly wild, where safari is the name of the game. There surely can’t be anything any more memorable or exciting for youngsters (or adults) than seeing the Big Five – lions, elephants, leopards, rhinos and buffalo – in the bush. Taking the plunge and travelling on safari with children can be daunting, but being on the same time zone as the UK, and with a number of malaria-free options to choose from, it's an ideal destination for a truly wild getaway, and one that the whole family is bound to love.

And there’s so much more besides. As a developed country, it’s easy to get around and has a fascinating choice of other things to see: from cool, cosmopolitan Cape Town to exploring the magical sights and sounds of the Garden Route (not to mention the epic marine safaris too).

Closer to Home


​It’s easy to overlook just how many advantages there are to holidaying closer to home. Perhaps it’s because everything feels so familiar… but then that’s one of the big advantages, surely?

Europe’s incredible diversity in scenery, history, culture, language and cuisine make it a fascinating destination, whichever country you visit. And in just two to three hours you can be in some of the most fashionable resorts or greatest cities in the world.

Don’t forget too that in many European countries, life revolves around the family, so children are welcomed with open arms (especially if you encourage them to practice their foreign language skills!).
