Our family holidays to Algarve match together friendly hotels and beach resorts with a long list of activities for little ones.
Blue Flag beaches
Holiday in the Algarve, and you can lay your towel in sight of copper-coloured cliffs, neat proms and some seriously bizarre rock formations cut by the Atlantic Ocean. Olhos d’Agua Beach goes down well with both children and adults, thanks to the crab-filled rock pools.
A choice of watersports
The Algarve’s biggest beach, Praia d’Oura in Albufeira, is the place to go for watersports. Jet-skis, pedalos, windsurfing boards, banana boats and canoes line the sand here. Plus, the shallow water is really family-friendly.
From theme parks to nature parks
Seals, high-dive shows, a 4D cinema and log flumes steal the show at Zoomarine — a zoo-come-waterpark in Guia. If you fancy really going back to nature, pack a picnic and travel to Ria Formosa National Park. Islands, lagoons and marshlands host flocks of coral-pink flamingos.
