Carribean Family Vacation Ideas

Carribean Family Vacations Idea #1:

If you are thinking about taking the family to the Caribbean, then beaches are probably important to your plans. The island of Anguilla has 33 beaches. You're certain to find one that fits your family's tastes. For sheer beauty you can't go wrong with Shoal Bay East.

This 2-mile long beach has been rated one of the best in the whole world. Sandy Ground Beach is also world famous but it's also Anguilla's most busy, touristy beach and it's known for its wild partying. So maybe it's not the best for families.

One of the best Anguilla beaches for families may be Barnes bay Beach. It's actually on its own little secluded island so you won't have to put up with crowds of beach goers. The family can relax, swim, and play in the sand without hassles. The bay waters off the beach are perfect for snorkeling, a wonderful family beach vacation activity.
