Family-Friendly Beach Fun

Family summer holiday. A phrase full of childhood memories. It evokes the memories of your first swimming attempts, refreshing ice cream melting all over your shirt, enjoying the beautiful blue colour of mornings and the red of the sunsets, listening to the calming sounds of the sea, leaving footprints in the sand and playing at sunny beaches.
