Meet Our Family Beach Holiday Experts

Tristan Williams

Middle East resorts Specialist

Growing up in a beautiful but very isolated area of Devon, much of my childhood was spent dreaming of distant corners of the globe. At the age of 18, I deferred my entry to University and embarked on a life changing adventure through Southern Africa, which was followed swiftly by further trips through Europe, Asia and Central America.

What Our Guests Say About Us

Luxury Family Beach Holiday FAQs

  • How long do your family beach holidays last?

    Our luxury family beach holidays typically last anywhere between seven and 14 nights. Each trip is carefully put together with you in mind, so the duration of your stay is entirely up to you. This way you can make sure you get the most out of your holiday and the fantastic destinations you can explore as a family.

  • When's the best time to go on a family beach holiday?

    This will depend on the destination you choose and the time of year you want to go away.

    If you have your heart set on a European getaway in the likes of Greece or Portugal, we recommend travelling during May or October so you can enjoy the splendid Mediterranean climate at its best.

    Thinking about travelling further afield? For destinations such as Antigua or Oman, we'd advise booking between October and April to avoid the intense heat during the peak summer months.

  • What does Scott Dunn's Explorers Kids Club include?

    To ensure your children have the most magical holiday imaginable, we provide exclusive kids clubs for children from the age of four months across many of our family beach holidays.

    You can be safe in the knowledge that your children will have fun making lots of new friends as we entertain them in first-class facilities.

    Find out more information about the kids clubs we have on offer in some of the most stunning destinations around the world. Our trusted consultants can help you find the right activities that will excite and inspire your little ones.
