If you’re ready to get away and take the family to a beach that’s
relaxing and entertaining for adults, but that still keeps the trip fun
and exciting for the kids, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 beaches in
the world for families. So, let’s start the countdown from number five
and work our way to the very best beach.

5. Trunk Bay, St. John in the Virgin Islands
Trunk Bay is part of the Virgin Islands National Park, and probably the
least known beach in our list. But, it is one of the best kept secrets of
the Virgin Islands. With the offshore coral reefs, Trunk Bay beach is
considered the best on the island of St. John.

Visitors can lounge in the sun, or explore the coral reefs in the
pristine waters off the coast of St. John. You can even try your hand at
underwater photography with the snorkeling equipment rentals available.
For more adventure you can take the family hiking into the park to see
old sugar plantations and the history of St. John.

4. Cancun, Mexico
Cancun is a popular hotspot and home to some of the best beaches in the
world. The best time of the year to visit this Mexican paradise is around
November or December. You’ll avoid the spring breakers and the tropical
storm season that usually hits in September or October. It’s also the
best time to get a deal, and when traveling as a family, good rates are
important.

Since you’ll want to find accommodations close to or on the beach, you’ll
find your best bets on the famous Hotel Zone, which is a 14 mile
peninsula into the Caribbean Sea. Our pick for the best hotel in Cancun
is the Barcelo Costa situated on the Playa Linda Beach in Cancun. This
resort is close to the golf course, shopping and of course, the beach.
3. St. Tropez, France
Most people think of Hollywood stars and clothing optional beaches when
they hear St. Tropez. However, there are several family friendly beaches
in St. Tropez that feature beach playgrounds, and places to find snacks
for the kids. Stay away in the summer months as there are hordes of
people on the beaches and in the shops. June and September are the best
months to take the family to the beach so you can still enjoy the warm
climate, but avoid the masses.

The Amarante Golf Plaza Hotel sits on the Bay of St. Tropez and features
luxury amenities like a swimming pool, fitness room, golf and tennis, and
serves gourmet food in their on-site restaurant.

2. Paradise Island, Bahamas
Paradise Island is small at only 5 square miles, but it is heaven for
beach goers. Besides the sandy beaches there are lots of fun things to
do with the family including shopping along the quaint streets, eating
local cuisine, or venturing through the 100-foot underwater tunnel to see
sharks, barracudas, and stingrays.

The Atlantis is the premier location to stay in Paradise Island, with
water activities for the kids and a full 18-hole golf course. On their
Cabbage Beach you can parasail, jetski, and snorkel.

1. Surfers Paradise Beach, Australia
Surfers Paradise Beach is our top pick because of the selection of
activities for people young and old. The beaches are gorgeous, the water
clear and inviting, and a ton of fun attractions at the Gold Coast. There
are plenty of theme parks like Sea World and Movie World. Activities run
the range from shopping, laying on the beach, snorkeling, surfing,
fishing, and even bungee jumping. At night they have hopping clubs and a
casino.

The Gold Coast International Hotel is far and away the best pick for
luxury accommodations in Surfers Paradise. Featuring spacious rooms, top
rate service, clean swimming pool, world class restaurant and bar, the
beaches should be the first destination when traveling to Surfers
Paradise, on Australia’s Gold Coast.
