Family holidays…you can’t beat ‘em. What to pack…checking if passports are up-to-date…fighting over who is sitting at the window seat on the aeroplane…all part of the family holiday experience.
I guess the most important question of all, however, is where to go on your annual family holiday!
Take a tip from the family holiday experts…
As you probably know, based on past blog posts outlining tips for travelling with children
on their travels, we have lots of experience in organising family holidays. Each year, we keep a close eye on those destinations which appear to be popular.
2014 seems to be the year of the Algarve. Here is why…
Family Holidays to the Algarve in Portugal
The Algarve is a truly beautiful and undeniably exciting family holiday destination. Stretching from the Spanish border, the Algarve is abounding with rugged coastlines and golden sandy beaches. It is a destination which sparkles in its warm sun. The Algarve has character, entertainment, and the raw material to produce a truly memorable family holiday. Algarvian resorts which are particularly suited to family holidays are Albufeira, Alvor, Lagos, Vilamoura, and Carvoeiro.
Helping your family make the most of the Algarve…
The Algarve has so much choice when it comes to staying occupied; surfing, golf, tennis, rock climbing, horse riding, kite surfing, kayaking, and wakeboarding are all popular tourist choices. Not only that, there are tonnes of water parks, theme parks, zoos, dolphin-spotting, crazy golf, and go-karting to choose from also! From adrenaline-pumping water sports for the kids, to a more leisurely game of golf or tennis for mum and dad, the Algarve has it all.
1. Watersports in the Algarve
Algarvian Watersports are something the Algarve is famous for. Whether it’s surfing, kite boarding or even wakeboarding,
the Algarve has something for everyone. Whether you have been a water baby from birth and you are looking for something to test your skills, or you are an oceanic novice, the Algarve has something to suit a range of abilities.
2. Golfing in the Algarve
Golfing is something else the Algarve is noted for. Green golf courses aplenty, golf enthusiasts will not be disappointed. Why not send the kids off surfing for the day, while mum and dad head off for a leisurely round of golf?
3. Accommodation Tips
From our vast experience in organising family holidays, we know that self-catering holiday accommodation in one or two bedroom apartments suits most families best. Such accommodation gives families the option of eating in…or indeed eating out in the many and varied restaurants the Algarve has to offer. All in all, it tends to be the most cost-effective solution for a family holiday.
