The Best Activities for Kids at Wild Coast Sun
Most parents know all too well that family holidays are not really holidays at all. Sun, sea and sand aside, family holidays can be stressful, inevitably revolving around trying (and often failing) to keep your children amused, persuading them to eat and wrangling them to bed so that you can finally put your feet up. The saying goes that “you are only as happy as your least-happy child”, which is why we have compiled the ultimate holiday guide packed with things to do with kids at Wild Coast Sun.
Here’s our family holiday guide full of practical tips to help you keep your cool on holiday...
