The best all inclusive October half term family holidays are the ones that offer enough for every member of the family…without breaking the bank.
We’ve done the research for you so that you can choose from the best holiday destinations that are sunny even in October, where the sea is inviting, and the crowds are beginning to thin so that you have more of the resorts to yourself.
Canary Islands, Spain
Tenerife, with its golden sandy beaches; Gran Canaria, with its beautiful seaside resorts; Lanzarote, blessed with wonderful sunshine; and Fuerteventura, with a strong claim to some of the best beaches in the world, are dream Canary Islands holiday destinations all-year round, and hold a special appeal as autumn and winter getaways for British tourists.
Their proximity to Africa means that the beaches on the Canary Islands get six and more hours of sunshine even after October. The daytime high right now over there is 26°C and it falls to 18°C at night. What’s it like right now, wherever you are?
All-inclusive deals to the Canary Islands resorts and hotels are huge money savers for families from the U.K looking to soak in the sun, enjoy Spanish culture, trek up mountains, and acquire some much needed Vitamin D to keep the bones strong for the coming winter months.
How does a daily high of 27°C and a low of 16°C at a beach resort with warm seas sound to you? This is Protaras in Cyprus where the crystal clear, limpid green waters of Fig Tree Bay are safe for all.
Arrive at the Larnaca International Airport (LCA), and from there head to your all-inclusive holiday resort for enjoying the hospitality of the Cypriots. Early autumn is a great time for families because the summer crowds have thinned, and if you’ve got relaxation and family time on your mind, then an October half term all inclusive package holiday to Protaras is worth considering.
Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt
Sharm El Sheikh is one of the most popular resort towns in Africa and attracts Europeans with its beautiful beaches, great cuisine, and temperatures that range from a high of 32°C to a low of 24°C. Go snorkeling in Tiran Islands; go on a day trip to Cairo, have a date with the Sphinx; go scuba diving in Ras Mohammad National Park; trek up Mount Sinai…or just chill at the all-inclusive resort. Enjoy Egyptian hospitality.
