6) Bournemouth, Dorset  The resort has seven miles of busy sandy beaches and was the first to introduce this sensible scheme, which is now credited with reducing by around half the number of cases of lost children. The scheme works by colour-coding the beach into zones and offering free colour-matched wristbands to families, which will link children to a particular 200m stretch of sand. The wristbands make it much easier for lifeguards to find the parents of ‘escapee’ tots as well as older children who have lost their parents.

With a reliable sea breeze, it’s the perfect place for the little ones to try their hand at flying a kite for the first time. But be warned, you’re likely to tire of re-launching the kite long before the kids have had enough! The beach has a car park, toilets and shop close by.
