Family hotels in the Indian Ocean

With the bluest of waters and powder-soft white beaches the Indian Ocean is the ideal beach destination for families


As any parent knows children just love the beach and you don't get better beaches then in the Maldives, Mauritius and the Seychelles.  With young children all you need is soft white sand, calm water and some shade and that is the perfect recipe for a wonderful holiday.  For older children you may need more to do so the hotels with plenty of activities and good Kids Clubs are ideal.  Each island has something different to offer.  The Seychelles are stunningly beautiful with some great desert island hideaway hotels and an increasing number of hotels with Kids Clubs.  The Maldives has wonderful hotels on stunning small islands with calm water, soft white sand and an array of activities both on land and at sea for all age groups.  Mauritius is probably the best for families wanting lots to do.  The hotels here are normally larger than in the Seychelles and Maldives but this means they can have great Kids Clubs, fantastic (often complementary) water sports and an island which is easy to get out and about on to explore.
