Help me find my Robinson Crusoe holiday for this year.

The last 2 years we’ve been to Kabak Beach in Turkey and slept in basically a garden shed on stilts overlooking the bay then the open deck of a boat, and a cabana on the beach on the outskirts of Tulum in Mexico. We like the barefoot, laid back approach where our days are spent on a lovely beach within easy walk of our accommodation and the odd day of sightseeing, and evenings spent eating in local restaurants followed by a drink in a mellow bar (with kids, so no beachfront raves!) playing cards and chatting or reading. We are not fans of sanitised AI resorts with all the food in buffets and laid on entertainment every night.

Flights are no problem to anywhere in the world, and time zones don’t bother the kids or me (DH will just have to cope!) We’ve got 12 days in August or 11 days in October. Top places so far on our list that we haven’t been to are Thailand or Greece, but there is such a lot of choice!

Beach porn pics added to show the sort of places we like (Kabak and Tulum. Slightly palindromic names not essential 😆😆)

We've done a posh shack on the beach in Tulum and loved it.
I suggest a rental in Bequia in The Grenadines. It's a cool, pretty island without the big AI hotels. Perfect beaches and relaxed vibe.
