It’s the first day of September and that can only mean one thing for parents up and down the country; school’s almost back!
The holidays seem to go so quickly, and given the beautiful weather we’ve had this year you could have decided to have a staycation over the summer. But with the nights drawing in and the temperatures dropping, you may well now be yearning for a sunshine escape, and with October Half Term the next feasible option, we’ve put together a few options to tempt you.

Take your family on a holiday they’ll never forget to the beautiful island of Antigua. One of the island’s finest resorts is Blue Waters, a family owned and fun destination which means that younger guests are thought of throughout.
For children aged 5 to 13 years, the attentive staff host an hourly session of activities from Monday to Friday, where little fun seekers can build sand castles, hunt treasure and play beach cricket. There’s a superb choice of accommodation and the hotel’s recent enhancement programme means every room type or villa is perfection.

The October climate in Egypt is much milder; making it perfect for families searching for sunshine without the summer highs. The Kempinski Soma Bay makes for a great all-round choice, with its own private sandy beach in a tranquil location.
The facilities at the resort are excellent, with four expansive outdoor pools complete with lazy river, plus access to Soma Bay Kite House, Diving Centre, Cascades Championship Golf Course and Thalasso Centre where there is always a special retreat for everyone in the family. At the Kimo Kids Club activities change daily and include face painting, pool games, dance lessons, cooking and shell collecting.
