Top Family Destinations in Spain
With glorious weather and outstanding beaches a short flight from the UK, it’s no wonder that Spain remains a firm favourite holiday destination with millions of visitors from the UK taking to the skies for a Spanish retreat in the summer.
Here’s UKMums.TV’s take on Spain’s popular holiday destinations:
The Balearic Islands
There’s more to the Baleares than party-hotspot Ibiza, one of the largest islands in the archipelago along with Majorca, Minorca, and Formentera, which offer quieter options.
Take a dip at Aqualand, the biggest waterpark in Mallorca, ideal for keeping young ones cool during the hot summer days, and be inspired at Majorca’s House of Katmandu which offers an interactive and educational experience that’s bound to keep children entertained with science experiments and a museum.
The Canary Islands
The lively Tenerife and Gran Canaria, more subdued Fuerteventura and Lanzarote and even quieter La Palma offer fantastic scenic variety ranging from forests to desserts.
The islands are ideal for families who are mad about wildlife. The acclaimed Loro Parque in Tenerife is home to everything from tigers and giant tortoises to secretive sea creatures and spectacular shows. There’s also the chance to go wildlife spotting at Fuerteventura’s Oasis Park, and for the adventurous to tour the islands volcanos and geysers.
With stunning beaches spanning 200 kilometers, the area is populated with rural inland villages and resorts like Benidorm, offering tourists the chance to experience authentic Spanish life as well as the hustle and bustle.
For guaranteed fun for all the family, why not visit Benidorm Circus? It’s full of Cirque de Soleil-style balancing acts, contortionists, fire dancers, clowns and trapeze artists. Or get closer to nature at the Algar Waterfalls with pools forming natural Jacuzzis.
