Halcyon cove by Rex - Few Question

Hi, we have been looking at the Halycon Cove in early Feb, we will be travelling with a 4 year old who is very fair skinned, are there many shaded areas? Also is there much for little ones to do?

There are shaded areas, but for a very fair skinned little one, I'd highly recommend an ankle to wrist sunsuit (which you should probably be using anyway) with a cap that has a neckpiece. Much easier to only have to do feet, hands and face than whole wriggly bodies! The little popup tents can also be a good idea.

As for things to do, from experience, you can't go wrong with a beach, bucket and spade!

There are a few, but not many, shaded areas, and there are no naturally shaded areas ON the beach where Halcyon is, although there are a few further down the beach. Suggestion is to ensure that your child is well protected against subnurn with some good suntan/suntan lotion (SPF 30 and above) and the suggestion of a sunsuit is another good idea.

As MizGeorge said, put a spade and bucket in their hands and these children will generally find something to do!
