Top Five Beach Side Parcs - Al Fresco Holidays

Beaches epitomise summer holidays and long hot days in the sun. Many of the Thomson Al Fresco sites are located right on the beach, combining great pools and relaxed camping atmosphere with a beach holiday.

So here are our top five beach-side locations we recommend if you are looking to escape our British weather:

Marina di Venezia, Venetian Riviera, Italy

The wide, sandy beach borders the parc and is perfect for kids of all ages. The on-site water park is out of this world. It’s got a massive climbing frame in the pool which sprays water and some great slides.

Le Conguel, South Brittany, France

We love the beach next to this small and friendly site as it is so pretty. Quiberon point is one of France’s most well loved landmarks: after here, next stop New York!

Kids will have a great time exploring the rock pools at low tide while parents catch some sunshine on the soft sand. One side faces the Atlantic swells and the other overlooks a sheltered bay so two different beach experiences can be chosen.

Les Prairies de la Mer, Cote d’Azur, France

This is top five due to the fantastic sports facilities on offer, making it perfect for older children. It does not have a swimming pool but the direct beach access more than makes up for that and the closeness to the lovely Port Grimaud.

Les Sablons, Languedoc, France

This beach parc is top ranked for the day time and evening entertainment so will keep kids of all ages happy. Kids can team up to play volleyball, football or basketball – a quick way to make friends!

Cala Gogo, Costa Brava, Spain

This parc isn’t technically beach-side but a leisurely stroll with no roads to cross brings you out at an amazing rocky cove. We love it for its amazing sea views from the Al Fresco emplacements too. It is set on a steep hill in a deliciously scented pine forest which creates a lovely, relaxing atmosphere.
