The Caribbean is a wonderful destination for a family holiday. Idyllic beaches, child-friendly hotels and an amazing array of water sports, plus exciting days out (that even impress fussy teens) make this part of the world a great place to bring children.

All-inclusive resorts, lush rainforests and incredible wildlife (sea turtles, humpback whales and rare birds) are just a few of the things that both the kids and adults can experience on a fun-filled island getaway.

Whatever your budget, there are endless options for a sun-kissed escape in the likes of the Dominican Republic, St. Kitts and Saint Lucia. British Airways offers affordable luxury and activity-packed holidays to the Caribbean, such as at the purse-friendly Timothy Beach Resort in St. Kitts and Saint Lucia's 'number one' family resort Coconut Bay Resort and Spa, which boasts the island's largest waterpark and an excellent kids' club.

Outside the resorts, there is a plethora of activities and intriguing places to visit as a family. On a Caribbean holiday, you can visit the world's only drive-in volcano, let your little ones take care of sea turtles and go on an underwater adventure without even getting your hair wet. And that's just when you fancy trying something different, as just a trip to the beach (Reduit, Playa Boca Chica and White House Bay) offers enough fun, relaxation and entertainment for an unforgettable day out.

From learning to surf to snorkelling, splashing around at a waterpark and taking a guided walk through the tropical rainforest, take a look at some of the best things to do on a family holiday in the Caribbean.
