Yes, most kids dream of tropical coconut islands with monkeys and palm trees as much as their parents do. A holiday to Ko Samui makes these tropical dreams come true. Here are 5 reasons why kids will love Ko Samui as much as the moms and dads among us:
- Picture perfect beaches to swim, splash and play
Surrounded by clear blue and turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and pristine bays, Samui Island is a jewel in the Gulf of Thailand – perfect for a family tropical island getaway. These beautiful beaches are what you all came for! The sea around Samui Island is very safe for swimming; the sand is soft and perfect for digging holes and building castles of sand. When you get thirsty, you can get a coconut or a pina colada and work on that beautiful tropical island tan without having to lift a finger (Don’t forget to wear sunblock or you will all get red like lobsters on fire!).
- Having a private swimming pool in the garden of your holiday home
What kid doesn’t dream of having a swimming pool in the garden? Samui is home to beautiful villas with private swimming pools in all price categories. You can finally read that book and relax as the kids entertain themselves for hours, running around in the garden and jumping in and out of the pool. Staying in a private villa gives you the comfort of having a home on the island with a notch of well-deserved luxury. A fully-equipped kitchen sure comes in handy when travelling with kids, and you won’t have to share any facilities with strangers – it is perfect. Find your Private Samui Villa here.
- Kayaking in paradise
Samui is the main gateway to get to Angthong National Marine Park where you can go kayaking with the family, exploring islands and secret beaches. In total, this beautiful marine park is home to 42 islands with mangroves, dense jungle, beaches, waterfalls, mountains and lakes. An amazing place to explore and have a family adventure into the wilderness of South Thailand. A trip to remember for a lifetime!
- An underwater world of wonders
The underwater world of Samui is a whole new paradise-like world to explore. Coral gardens and sea creatures are abundant, stunning and beautiful. You don’t have to be a diver admire these wonders of the underwater world; you can just go swim out to sea with your snorkelling set on. You can spot the weirdest sea creatures and the most colourful fish. Bring an underwater camera for some cool family photos taken in this magnificent seascape beneath the surface of the sea.
