Paradise Coast – the name alone should suggest what a holiday here is going to be like. Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, Florida’s Paradise Coast offers beautiful beaches, incredible hotels and warm waters. The Paradise Coast is made up of several towns and cities including Naples, Marco Island and Everglades City so there’s plenty of child-friendly accommodation and activities.
Spending just a few minutes on the beaches on Paradise Coast will make you forget you’re in the USA and make you think you’re on a tropical island somewhere. The blue waters and palm-tree-lined beaches really are some of the best in the world. You only have to go slightly inland from the pristine beaches to find the more rugged side of south-west Florida. Families can go for guided walks through the tropical landscapes, or even embark on a kayak tour of the coast and the Everglades National Park. While there you can enjoy some unique wildlife and flora – but don’t worry, the tour guides know how to keep things safe!
The spectacular natural sights of the area are matched only by the incredible accommodation available. Dozens of 5-star hotels can be found on the Paradise Coast, and families on a budget can easily find something more affordable. As a family-friendly location, there is an endless list of activities to keep the kids entertained. Many hotels also have kids-clubs in case parents need a night out.
