If you are a parent of young children, taking a beach vacation might seem a little bit intimidating. In fact, it might not sound like a vacation at all. However, our team at Sea Gardens Beach and Tennis Resort thinks that with the right preparation, it is totally worth it to get a breath of fresh air and change of scenery with your brood. We’ve put together a list of expert tips so you can feel confident taking your kids to the beach.
Travel During the Off SeasonBecause your kids are still young, you aren’t a slave to a school schedule just yet. Take advantage of that flexibility while you can and plan your trip during the off season. This way you can avoid crowds and find better travel deals. If your kids are in school and you want to travel during their break, research your destination’s school breaks and avoid those, if possible.
Keep Your Schedule LooseOf course planning is important, you need to know your destination, hotel accommodations, and potential activities. However, if you are too strict with your schedule, you are setting yourself up for frustration and disappointment. Be okay with leaving the beach early one day because someone needs a nap, or give yourself the latitude to stay an hour past bedtime because the weather is perfect. It can be relaxing to be spontaneous; see where the day takes you!
Try Something New
You’re certainly going to spend time at the beach during a beach vacation, but vacation is also a great time to try something new as a family. Check your hotel’s amenities and rental options, and find something child-friendly to try. Consider trying a new sport, like tennis, or rent a jet ski and go for a ride! Whatever you choose, getting out of your comfort zone is a great way to make lasting memories with your family.
