The family unit is at the heart of almost half of all leisure trips. In 2012, 44 percent of leisure travelers had children with them, and for good reason. Family vacations can act as the glue that holds a diverse collection of individuals together. From special collective memories to exhilarating shared activities, family travel offers distinctive benefits for everyone.
Family Dinners are a Natural Inclusion
Busy schedules can make it difficult to find time for a leisurely family meal during the week, let alone three relaxing meals in one day. Dining together is daily event when you’re on a family vacation, and the delicious restaurants at Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa offer ample opportunities for friendly conversation. Come hungry because there are countless occasions for family bonding over delicious food, whether you’re dining on crispy hand-tossed pizza poolside at the Beach Grill or creating your own fresh fruit smoothies at the Coconut Walk Marketplace.
Water Activities Cater to Everyone
Swimming and water sports top the list of vacation activities for the family. Coconut Bay offers a wide range of options in this area including water vollyball, snorkeling and kayaking. The water park features activities for every age range with the Coconut Coaster for adventurous guests and a tot-size water playground for the smallest visitors. Whether you’re relaxing together on the lazy river or taking turns blasting down the Coconut Canon waterslide, there are plenty of opportunities for family fun in the water.
Friendly Competition Makes Lasting Memories
Engaging teens in family activities can be a struggle, but the right environment will allow them to draw Mom and Dad into their own wild adolescent world. Partake in friendly competition against one another or unite the family as a team battling other guests at The Zone. This 25,000-square-foot paintball course is the perfect place for teens and teens-at-heart to bond, battle and create hilarious stories that will become classic family tales.
Relaxation Offers Time to Share
Families on vacation feel more relaxed, calm and affectionate than those who are bustling through the frantic routine of everyday life. And when the adults want some relaxing time of their own, the younger generation can bond in the CocoLand Kidz Klub, making family togetherness time all the more meaningful.
Whether you’re looking for a much-needed break from the daily grind, or you want to find an unforgettable way to keep your family close, a family vacation can help you achieve your goals. Coconut Bay’s Splash wing will delight the young and young-at-heart with memorable opportunities for everyone.
