Tips to Plan a Family Vacation at the Beach

☀ Before you plan the destination, ask everyone in the family what they’re looking forward to. If it’s just the beach, your job becomes simpler. If not, list down what everyone says and make sure they get it. You don’t want anyone to be sad during a vacation.

☀ Most hotels don’t charge money for kids aged 10 and less. Make sure you finalize on one of these hotels. Booking a separate room for kids will not only add to your staying expenses, but also not ensure your child’s complete safety.

☀ If you have children that need supervision, avoid parts of the beach with rip tides and strong currents. Make sure that there is a lifeguard on duty all the time and that the area is patrolled regularly.

☀ Don’t plan this vacation during the hurricane season. If you don’t have an option, take extra precautions before you plan your trip.

☀ Look for beaches that offer more than just water sports. State parks are a good option here since they have multiple activities.

☀ Managing a lot of people is not easy. Hence, plan as

The Best Beaches in Phuket

Patong Beach

Patong, located on the west coast, is synonymous with everything Phuket stands for―and we’re talking both, carnal and surreal. The area is abuzz with the ‘mai pen rai’ or ‘take it easy’ attitude, for when you’re in Patong, everything, and we mean everything, is easy to get. From a Pad Thai breakfast off the street, to a Thai cabaret show to round off the night, nothing is impossible when you’re here.
But amidst the neon lights, the souvenir shops, the sleazy ladyboy bars lies Patong’s super-popular beach. Stretching 3 km, the beach holds quite a reputation for its nightlife. Which doesn’t mean that families refrain from coming here. There are endless activities to indulge in, including jet-skiing, parasailing, swimming, or simply lazing on those inviting lounge chairs―you may even get a Thai massage, if you please.

If the main beach in Patong is too overwhelming for you, head to Freedom Beach, a white sand haven dotted with granite rocks and surrounded by hills covered by thick cover of green. The beach can only be accessed by boat, which means, you’ll find relatively fewer crowds here. On the agenda here is soccer, volleyball, snorkeling, and sunbathing; all

Long Beach in California

The area was initially known as the ‘Bay of Smokes’. This was because in the 1500s, an explorer named Juan Rodriquez Cabrillo observed smoke signals rising from atop the hill (known as Signal Hill today). The Native Americans originally occupied it and they were known to employ the practice of using smoke signals as a form of communication with people who lived across the Santa Catalina Island.

The late 1700s saw the division of the land that was owned by Spain. It was divided between two landowners. The Rancho Los Cerritos and Rancho Los Alamitos (as it was named) had a boundary between them that ran through the center of Signal Hill. In 1843, John Temple bought the Rancho Los Cerritos. Today, the Rancho Los Cerritos, also known as Ranch House, stands as an important historical landmark. Temple sold off the ranch house in 1866 to Flint, Bixby & Co. Portions of the Rancho Los Cerritos was sold by the 1880s.

Dangerous Beaches in the World
