Winter Sun Family Holidays in the Indian Ocean

With so many super-family-friendly hotels and resorts – most notably in Mauritius and the Seychelles, but increasingly in the Maldives too – the Indian Ocean is a fabulous destination for winter sun holidays with kids.

The weather in this region is fabulous all year round, with temperatures on land and in the water varying little (think about 30°C on land). Mauritius has a short wet season from January to March. 

Most family accommodation in the Indian Ocean is luxurious, with swimming pools, childcare and direct beach access, so even those with very young children who don’t enjoy the heat will have options for keeping them cool and entertained in the heat of the day. 

However, do bear in mind that winter is peak season in the region, with Christmas and Easter the busiest and most expensive times. If you can, bring the kids to Mauritius in April, when the first deals start to appear. The busiest season in the Seychelles and and the Maldives is December to April, the Maldives is December to April.
