Five Family Beaches To Visit In US

When it comes to vacations, people tend to choose beaches as the first priority to spend their time. Apart from enjoying the summers’ cool breeze, beaches host a number of activities that you and your family could have a pretty good time together.

Family campfire nights, nature walks, surfing and swimming are just a mention of great activities you could be enjoying on your next travel to the beach. However when it comes to family outings, not all beaches could be favorable enough for each family to feel comfortable together.

To beat the challenge of finding the best beach to fit your family, I have complied the best places for your family to enjoy the waves and the beach hotels.

 Outer Banks

The Outer Banks (also known as OBX) is a 200-mile (320-km) long string of narrow barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina and a small portion of Virginia

The Outer Banks is a major tourist destination and is known for its temperate climate and wide expanse of open beachfront. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore has four campgrounds where visitors may camp.Enjoy the great summer weather on OBX. The beach also provides rental condo ideal for your family time and beach access.

Coligny Beach Park

The beach is located at Hilton Head, South Carolina.

The beach offers the best swimming facilities suiting every family member. There are small tidal pools that form during low tides. Also they will love hunting for sea shells and other beach treasures.

There are plenty of activities like sand biking and entertainment such as magic shows. Just a few steps from Coligny Beach Park, you will find Holiday Inn Oceanfront which organizes free poll and beach side games.

Kama’ole Beach Park III.

The beach is located on the sunny south side of Maui.
The is one of the best beaches which is ideal for your family, especially for young kids. It has the largest park, with a beautiful grassy area for relaxing, picnicking and people-watching.  There are picnic tables, restrooms and outdoor showers in the parks beside each beach.  Each of the three parks has a free parking lot or adjacent free street parking.

Kids might spot sea turtles or even puffer fish! This could turn to be the best retreat for your family.

The beach offers a budget friendly rental condo.This is more favorable if you had a plan of spending the night there.

Coronado Central Beach

The beach is located just from the 5 freeway just south of downtown San Diego, through the Coronado Bridge  over the bay to Coronado Island.

Whether you’re looking for a romantic island getaway with your partner, or a fun-filled family beach vacation for your family, you’ll find the idyllic beach paradise in the “crown city” and its neighboring regions.Enjoy cool breeze and tide pools filled with sea creatures form in front of the famous Hotel del Coronado.

The beach provides a parking space and a designated lot for those staying in the hotels.

Safety is guaranteed in the beach by availability of lifeguards and the beach patrons.

The only resort along this stretch of sand, the Victorian-style Hotel del Coronado offers family s’mores nights, a drop-off kids’ program for 4- to 12-year-olds, and babysitting.

 Coquina Beach Park, Bradenton, Florida

Coquina Beach, located on the south end, is the longest stretch of beach on Anna Maria, with plenty of free parking, lifeguards, concessions, picnic tables, a playground, restrooms and showers.

Remnants of old piers jutting out into the water (dividing sections of the beach) make it awkward for running, but a choice spot for surfers.  It’s also the place where you’ll mostly find younger groups of people gathering around a boom box, sunbathing, or playing Frisbee on the sand.
The Tradewinds Resort, just a 1-mile trolley ride from the beach, gives families a seashell guide and loans out buckets, sand tools, and floaties. A great money saver: Each room has a full kitchen.
