Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is great fun fo all the family.  A number of hotels offer scuba diving packages including learning how to dive.  To get the most out of a diving holiday it is worth getting your diving certiicate before you leave the UK.  PADI dive centres around the country can help you and this means that when you get to your hotel you have already done the boring pool work and you are ready to head straight out.

Seychelles

The first thing that sets Frégate Island apart from everywhere else is its beaches. We have never before found a beach where no flowery descriptions can do it justice, they are simply breathtakingly beautiful. Frégate boasts a greedy seven beaches, so with a total of just 16 villas seclusion is guaranteed. Although Fregate may seem like an indulgence for your family Fregate is a treat that is worth it.

Baraza is a stunning breath of fresh air which lies along the award winning Bwejuu Beach on the South Eastern Coast of Zanzibar, it is characteristic of all classical Swahili architecture, infused with Arabic, Swahili and Indian designs so elegantly and richly, that you will feel as if you have stepped back in time to the era of the Sultan’s. Although this sounds far too sophisticated and luxurious to have children there – it’s actually perfect for families!

Zanzibar

Breezes is set on a beautiful, white sandy beach on the East Coast. Being more of a small beach hotel than a lodge it has the advantage of an excellent range of facilities including a wonderful spa, large free form swimming pool, tennis court, watersports centre, dive school plus a choice of bars and restaurants. With more to do than most of the ‘beach lodges’ on Zanzibar this is probably one of the best options for families with older children who might otherwise get bored at a small lodge.

Suitable for: Families with older children.
