The crystal clear waters of the Maldives provide the best place in the world for a luxury getaway with the family. A few of the best Maldives resorts offer perfectly placed lagoons whose flat, turquoise waters and position to the prevailing wind directions, offer the ideal place to learn to kitesurf. And on the days where there is not enough wind to get out on the water, you can enjoy snorkelling, SUP, kayaking and scuba diving some of the best spots in the world. Some of the resorts even have a resident marine biologist you will take you out to see the manta rays and whale sharks and teach you all about these beauties of the deep.
Langebaan, South Africa

There are so many hidden coves, areas of natural beauty, stunning beaches, and pockets rich in history and culture that your days will be spent exploring the island with your family, when not kitesurfing of course!
