If you had to specify what you wanted for a family beach holiday, you'd probably start with clean, soft sand and warm, clear water. Next, you'd need blue skies and plenty of sun plus lots of activities and entertainment. And since you're on holiday as well, it'd be nice to have a babysitter or child-minder so you can spend some quality time with your partner - on or off the golf course...
Well, look no further: lying in the sun-drenched Indian Ocean and a short flight from Johannesburg, Cape Town or Durban, Mauritius has been the scene for classic family beach holidays for decades.
We've done a lot of travelling to Mauritius and have carefully selected family-friendly accommodation that will deliver a top-class, hassle-free family holiday experience. We're talking about beach resorts that have dedicated kids clubs, special menus and competitions as well as offering babysitting services and facilities for babies and toddlers. These resorts will entertain your children in safe, professional environments while you're off snorkelling, diving, golfing or just plain old snoozing - have family holidays ever been this easy?
