One stunning destination that you really should consider is Goa. When it comes to unforgettable experiences, gorgeous surroundings and a long list of things to see and do, Goa family holidays tick all the right boxes – and then some!
Located on the west coast of India, the tiny state of Goa is an exotic place with a big history. Evidence of early settlements in Goa date back 20,000 – 30,000 years, with cave paintings and ancient trinkets suggesting that this beautiful corner of the world has long been inhabited – and enjoyed – by settlers.
There is tons of history for mum and dad to enjoy – and the grandparents too, if they’re invited! And as for the little ones, family holidays in Goa come with all sorts of different activities that are bound to keep them suitably entertained. For instance, Goa is famous for its beaches, and welcomes sun-seeking tourists every year who enjoy its fine golden sands and pristine shores. Find a quiet corner and kick back on a sunbed while the kids busy themselves building sandcastles, or treat them to a boat trip to discover hidden coves and sheltered bays further along the coast.
As a biodiversity hotspot, Goa offers a great chance for the kids to experience the amazing wildlife in this corner of the world. This tiny nation is packed with wildlife sanctuaries and National Parks, with organised tours and excursions available to allow the whole family to get up close and personal with the local wildlife.
