The islands of the Indian Ocean, which include Mauritius, the Seychelles and the Maldives, can offer very different experiences for family holidays. Choices range from relaxing breaks at luxury family-friendly resorts with all the amenities a parent could wish for to authentic experiences of cultures far removed from our own and unforgettable wildlife encounters and excursions into nature, or you could combine the two for a trip you and the kids will never forget.
These are all prime beach-holiday destinations with watersports opportunities galore for those who can tear themselves away from their loungers. There are also some superb kids' clubs in this neck of the woods. The Maldives has traditionally been the preserve of honeymooners but is fast opening itself up more to the family market, although its pleasures usually command a very high price.
Family-friendly resorts across the Indian Ocean serve international fare as well as local specialities, making it easy to please even the most culinarily unadventurous of young travellers.
