My family loves going to the beach each summer.
I think "loves",but someone said "loves going to beach" is the verb phrase.
So what's correct and how???

In a sentence like "my family go to the beach", the verb phrase is just the words "go to". Your family are the subject, and 'the beach' is the object of the verb phrase.
However, because you have an additional verb, 'loves', the entire phrase "going to the beach" is a phrase, and the object of that independent verb.
