5 of the best family adventure holidays
1. SET SAIL IN THAILAND
Why go? Brand new for 2015, if your family loves to swim, snorkel and enjoy the beach, this is the perfect family holiday. What better place to have some quality family time than in one of the world’s most beautiful archipelagos? Set sail from Koh Samui towards Ang Thong Marine park, a 42 strong group of islands home to limestone massifs and dense forests inhabited by langur monkeys, crab-eating monkeys, monitor lizards and hornbills. If you’re feeling energetic you can even climb to the Emerald Lake!
Island hopping: Sail to the luxurious islands of Ko Tao, Mango Bay and Ko Phangan before heading back to Koh Samui. Along the way you’ll experience a whole host of new adventures from hiking in the forests toward the beautiful Than Sadet Waterfall, to shopping in little markets dotted around Ko Phangan’s town. Thailand’s coast has something for everyone in the family, regardless of age. Kayak, swim, snorkel, hike or just kick back with a good book. In the evening, enjoy family dinners on secluded beaches or chow down some authentic Thai cuisine aboard the vessel.
The Lowdown: The Family Adventure Company offers a seven day tour of the east coast islands aboard a multihull catamaran. The price includes six nights’ boat accommodation, all breakfasts, four lunches and four dinners and all in-country transport. You’ll be accompanied by a local group leader for the duration of the trip.
Price: From £990 per adult and £891 per child
