Best places to go without kids
Once you’re a parent, going on holiday is never the same again: your once compact cabin bag is now three large suitcases plus a stroller. You deserve some well-needed rest, so here are some of the best places you and your partner can go without the kids!
Las Vegas, USA
The wonderfully vibrant Las Vegas, situated in the Nevada desert, is a playground for grown-ups, where the famous slogan “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” couldn’t ring more true! Here you can indulge in all-night parties, a cocktail or two, and gambling along a colourful strip full of swanky bars, casinos, and electrifying street parades and performers.
Las Vegas also has a subtropical climate, so you will be able to enjoy the sun all year round! You need to be at least 21 to get into any bars and clubs, so Las Vegas is the perfect place to relive your early twenties. An unmissable experience!
The honeymoon favourite of many newly-weds and couples alike, the Maldives is a secluded tropical paradise with breathtaking surroundings. A majority of Maldivian resorts don’t allow children, so you’re guaranteed to be child-free throughout the duration of your stay! Here you can unwind as you swim in warm crystal-clear waters, have a candlelit dinner under the stars, stroll along the pure white sands, and eat and drink to your heart’s content. If you want to try something luxurious that’s a bit different, stay in a water villa. You can watch the sealife swim around you as well as catching the stunning sunrise and sunsets.
Hamilton Island, Queensland, Australia
Based in the heart of the charming Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is set in the Great Barrier Reef and home to one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia - Whitehaven Beach. If you fancy doing some couple activities, here you can go snorkeling with the turtles over the spectacular tropical seabed. You can also go bushwalking, exploring coves and tucked away picnic spots. The fun doesn’t stop there, you can hire a yacht and sail round the Whitsundays either by yourself or with a skipper, or take part in a spot of paddleboarding. Child-free bliss!
Napa Valley, California, USA
Where better to celebrate being child-free than in the home of the world’s greatest vineyards? Take a wine tour you’d never forget in a beautiful hot air balloon. You will get to experience the impressive Napa Valley from the open Californian air with a glass of the good stuff in hand. Or if you fancy a Napa Valley tour on land, you can embark upon a picturesque horseback ride among the scenic vineyards. With its lush green foothills, Napa Valley is perfect for playing a spot of golf, with a selection of golf courses set amongst the wondrous Napa Valley countryside.
Beautiful both during the day and at night, Mykonos has a thriving nightlife. Dance the night away and watch the sunrise after your night out. You can forget about the family hatchback and explore the whitewashed villas of the island via a nippy scooter. It is here you will get to experience the meandering Greek roads, and drive past the famous Mykonos windmills. Or for a bit of Italy in Greece, visit Little Venice, a lively part of Mykonos that overlooks the azure waters. This little spot is romantic when the sun goes down and sets the ambience for an intimate date night.
