Great family beach holidays in the Seychelles

Being free of malaria and large predators, the beautiful tropical islands of the Seychelles should be top of your list for family beach holidays, especially with small children. You'll find generally very friendly people here and simple, good-value lodges as well as the better-known luxurious retreats. Many of these places welcome children of all ages!

Most travellers may imagine exclusive five-star resorts and costly private island retreats when thinking of holidays to the Seychelles. Indeed, these do offer high-quality accommodation and great flexibility on family beach holidays in the Seychelles - to those who don't mind a high price tag. Often, you'll also find remarkable services specifically for children at these places, from excellent child clubs to age-appropriate spa treatments.

However, they aren't the only option. If on a tighter budget, consider some of the really lovely, inexpensive and child-friendly lodges for your family beach holidays in the Seychelles. These might not boast a fancy kids club but they are often run by owners with children of their own, which usually results in a relaxed atmosphere and can add a delightful personal touch to your family beach holidays in the Seychelles.

Expect inexpensive accommodation options to be mainly designed for self-catering and relatively simple in standards, yet great-value, with comfortable, spacious rooms. Many will happily arrange activities for you but key remains your freedom to explore the islands on your own.

North Island

The lounge of each sumptuous, stylish beach villa at North Island can easily sleep two children. It serves the top end of the market for family beach holidays in the Seychelles, so come for a beautiful setting, excellent service and ultimate exclusivity!


Bird Island Lodge

Bird Island Lodge makes for simple, relaxed family beach holidays in the Seychelles. For energetic children, ideally 8+, the island is a great 'natural playground' – quite safe and home to giant tortoises and a rich birdlife. Note that there are strong currents here!


Ephelia Resort

Ephelia Resort has 18 Family Villas, each sleeping up to six people on family holidays in the Seychelles. Alternatively, its Beachside Villas, Junior and Senior Suites can accommodate under-twelves on sofa beds. Children might enjoy the beach or activities in the kids’ club.
