A Day at the Seaside
When was the last time you enjoyed a trip to the seaside with your family? A day at the beach has its place in many of our memories as some of the best times with family, playing games, swimming in the sea and enjoying each other’s company. The best thing about the beach is that you have to use your imagination to entertain yourselves, leaving computer games and phones to the side. Enjoy searching for rocks and shells, watching crabs, flying kites, building sandcastles, playing ball games, burying each other in the sand and creating great memories with your family. Bring or buy a picnic and enjoy a family lunch al fresco, trying not to get sand in your sandwiches. Beaches are great because children entertain each other while mum and dad enjoy a relaxing afternoon reading their favourite book and keep an eye out.
If you want to keep their little brains active while exploring, take a trip to the fantastic Fort Napoleon. Discover the Fort with an experienced guide and learn about the history of this unique building and the many stories encapsulated in the walls. Take a guided tour which will take you to explore the lighthouse, so you can appreciate the beautiful views. Don’t worry, it’s not all educational; the Fort has a great playground suitable for kids of all ages where they can tire themselves out for hours. Throughout the year, the Fort is regularly transformed into a hub for families and children with fun events and exhibitions for the whole family. Check their website for a schedule of events.
