Model Answer:
My family went to Kuwait last summer to spend a vacation. It was the most memorable experience for me and the other family members. During the visit, we went to a beach named Messilah and enjoyed a lot. In fact, that was the best holiday I ever have had. This is a great cue card task for me and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to let me talk about it.

Kuwait is a beautiful country but I did not have the chance to visit the entire land. I stayed in a star-rated hotel near the Messialh beach. Messilah is one of the biggest and enriched beaches of the country. It is filled with white sands and the water colour is deep blue. This is a perfect place to be with family and children. The other beaches are not so much clean as it is. Besides, there is a swimming pool as well which attracts the swimmers who are unable to swim in the beach. The most significant thing about the beach is that this is costlier than the other beaches though the enjoyment is worth the costs.

During this visit in Kuwait, I mostly had spent my time near the beach. In fact, my parents went to visit the city and had their necessary shopping. But I preferred to take part in water sports and took some boat trips on the sea as well. I tried to dive under the sea but later discarded the idea as I was not a good swimmer.

It was the best holiday for me as I did not have seen sea beaches before. My parents also allowed me to move alone and enjoy myself. The natural views of the beach were outstanding and I loved the sea foods. So, I think it was the best holiday so far for me.
