A trip to the Maldives with your whole family can be a ton of fun and can be a great chance for everyone to bond. Of course, you want your family, especially your kids to be exposed to the beauty of the world.
However, a poorly planned trip, though, can turn into a nightmare. Instead of relaxation, you can experience stress and anxiety when everything goes downhill.
Planning a trip with the whole family is a whole different thing when you plan for a solo getaway, or a honeymoon trip for two, especially if you are traveling with kids. They will be needing more things for their safety and convenience, so better start planning meticulously if you want your family—and of course you to enjoy the trip.
Here are some tips to follow to make sure that it will be a fun day at the beach!
A beach trip with the family is obviously different to the time when all you need to pack was a sunscreen and the hardest decision is which swimsuit to wear. Planning a beach trip, especially with your kids requires more attention to detail and encourages more research.
Packing for the trip:
The majority of people dread packing—especially if it involves packing for children. But, with the right strategizing, planning and timing, it’s just easy as 1-2-3!
What should you pack?
Beach toys and floaties:
Grooming and Hygiene kits:
Sand-free beach bags:
It will save you tons of energy and time when you opt to bring sand repellent bags instead of the normal beach bags you bring before.
Preparing for the airplane ride:
Most probably, you will be riding a plane for your trip to The Maldives. If your kids are big enough or are used to plane rides, then it will be a just breeze. On the other hand, smaller children will tend to be scared or bored in flight.
Even if you’ll be spending the day on walking tours or at the beach, it is important to start early, when your kids have the most energy. Also, this way you can finish early and get back to your room and rest.
Being the first ones on the beach can also be a great experience—having the shore to yourselves.
Stay on schedule:
To ensure that you make the most out of your trip and still get adequate rest, make sure that you follow your schedule as planned.
It doesn’t need to be showing an ID all the time. Attach the tag containing your contact information to their bags or to their sides, just in case of emergency.
Establish a no-touch, no-go zone:
The beach is an open space that has a lot of unforeseen and uncontrollable things and factors. Make sure you talk to your kids about this and explain why they are no touch and no go zones.
