Family holiday and travel with children to Spain


Spain offers Baroque Cathedrals to Muslim Palaces, sun drenched beaches of the Costas to the snow-capped mountains of Sierra Nevada, this diverse country has so much to offer everyone.

Spain has been a firm family favourite with British tourists for years, and there are many reasons why people flock back again and again. Beautiful sunshine, glorious cities and friendly people are to name but a few. This really is a family destination that keeps on giving.

If you are visiting with small children the best time to holiday would be in spring, temperatures are a lot more comfortable this time of year. For families seeking the hottest summer sunshine that Spain has to offer temperatures soar in July and August, just in time for those summer holidays. The Canary Islands are also winter favourites due to warm temperatures continuing into the later months thanks to their position just off the north-western coast of Africa, in the Atlantic Ocean.

Located in south western Europe on the Iberian Peninsula, Spain is home to a variety of different family holiday resorts. It really couldn’t be more versatile, there is something for every family here. You can choose to take the kids on a cultural city break in Barcelona or Madrid or hit the beaches for some laid back summer fun on one of the Balearic or Canary Islands.

Spain is fast becoming the theme park capital of Europe with the massive Port Aventura located near Salou on the beautiful Costa Dorada and Parque De Atracciones situated in Madrid, to name but two. Just imagine the look on the children’s faces when you take them to one of these magical attractions, ride the rollercoasters, meet the park characters and see the fantastic family shows they have on offer. After all that excitement the family can indulge in a Spanish custom, an afternoon siesta. It’s important to note that some local shops and smaller supermarkets may close in Spain for a brief period in the afternoon, so be prepared and stock up on plenty of water in the morning.

With centuries of captivating history, there is so much to see and learn about in Spain. Take a tour of any Spanish city to learn of its historic and fascinating past. The kids will love clambering over the rooftops of the Gaudi House in Barcelona, or head out to the nearby Costa Dorada’s Port Adventura - the largest theme park in southern Spain. Further down the coast, bustling Benidorm is home to Rio Safari and Terra Mitica. Back inland, and on the outskirts of Madrid, you can meet cartoon characters at at Parque Warner. Head further South to watch swords being made in the Imperial City of Toledo and further still to Andalucia with its Islamic style fortresses, palaces and mosques onto the Costa del Sol with an abundance of water parks, zoos and family fun entertainment.
