Family holidays can be tricky to organize. It’s always best to plan as much as you can in advance so you know what you’re going to do and when if you have young children in tow, so you can keep boredom at bay and ensure everyone has a fun trip away. Here are a few ideas of where to go in the Algarve for family-friendly days out.
Slide & Splash
For me Slide and Splash is one of the est days out in the area. But be warned it is one hell of a sun trap and the queues in peak season of July and August means you have a perfect recipe for sunburn. However, don’t let that detract you, cream up and get in those queues!
Here you’ll find turtles, seals, sea lions, dolphins, tropical birds and more – all in one place! If your children are aged six or over they can even swim with dolphins, so it’s the perfect excursion for your holiday in the Algarve. Just make sure you book in advance!
Sticking with the animal theme, head to Lagos Zoo for a great day out. There’s a petting farm so your kids can have a lovely time familiarising themselves with all sorts of different animals and it’s the perfect place to go for a picnic as well.
You can’t go somewhere like the Algarve without heading to one of the waterparks to be found here, absolutely ideal for young children. Depending on their age, you can take them down some of the scary rides to be found here, like the Kamikaze. Or even think about taking them white-water rafting down the Rapids Ride!
Pirate ship cruise
What better way to see the local area than on your very own pirate ship? You’ll be taken to lots of beautiful beaches, caves and grotto’s, as well as having plenty of time to splash about in the azure sea.
