5 Perfect places for a familymoon

By  |  0 Comments

For the couple with kids, honeymoons are not as relaxing as they appear to be. Rather than focusing on your partner, your mind wanders to your children and how they’re doing while you’re away. That’s why more couples are opting to go on familymoons instead. If you’re thinking of taking the whole family on a well-deserved holiday (after dealing with all that wedding stress), here are five great places to go.

1 Sun City, North West 


Nothing says family fun like Sun City. The resort offers a range of accommodation that suits any budget and has loads of activities that you can enjoy as a family or a couple. Between the pools, entertainments centre, outdoor activities and live shows, there’s plenty to keep you occupied. It’s also a great resort to just unwind and relax. With programmes and activities for all ages, you and your partner can enjoy some alone time in-between all the family bonding too.

2 Manuel Antonio Park, Costa Rica


Costa Rica crops up in most searches for great family holiday spots and we fully understand why. Not only is it a beautiful part of the world but it also offers a great range of experiences that you’ll never forge. Manuel Antonio Park is a small nature reserve situated south of Quepos on the Pacific Coast and features expansive white sand beaches backed by evergreen forests. Take the kids snorkelling or go for a romantic walk in the forest with your significant other.

3 Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal


Getting lost in the mountains after a whirlwind few months of wedding prep seems like a fantastic way to unwind with your family. The Drakensberg is a magnificent mountain range and wonderful holiday spot. From self-catering to five-star, there’s accommodation for every budget. If your family loves the outdoors, there’s plenty to keep you occupied: enjoy horseriding, fishing, golf, bowls, mountain biking, game and bird viewing and even aircraft flights. It’s also a peaceful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city – simply breathe, relax and focus on what’s important: your family.

4 Mauritius


With its white sandy beaches, palm trees and an array of fun activities, Mauritius is already a popular honeymoon spot. But it’s also perfect for a familymoon. Whether you’re set on canoeing, snorkelling, enjoying the wildlife or catching some rays on the beach, the whole experience is enhanced when you get to share it with your family. Plus, the Island is so small you can explore it in its entirety at your leisure.

5 Cape Town


For a family of city slickers, there’s no better place to be than Cape Town. With its perfect mix of cosmopolitan living and outdoor activities, there’s a whole range of great family fun to be had. Vvisit the Two Oceans Aquarium, hike up Table Mountain (or take a ride in the cable car), explore the Peninsula, have the best fish and chips in Hout Bay, enjoy a day at the beach, the list is endless. There are also many places where you can drop the children off to amuse themselves while you and your partner head out for a quiet dinner or some couple-time.
