A real holiday is one that the whole family enjoys, and in Spain, you’ll all have a great time because there’s something for everyone here. You’ll find beaches, wild nature, and cities with lots of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Here are some destinations and suggestions that we hope will inspire you.
Costa Daurada, Tarragona
Mild temperatures, long stretches of fine, golden sand, and one of the best theme parks in the world, PortAventura —how nice does that sound? Just an hour away from Barcelona, you’ll find Salou, in the heart of the Costa Daurada.
Tenerife, Canary Islands
Thanks to its privileged climate, Tenerife is the perfect destination for a holiday with your kids, as you can enjoy outside activities all year round, and there are so many things to do on this island. We recommend enjoying the beaches, the volcanic landscapes, and going up to the summit of El Teide, the island’s volcano and the highest mountain in Spain.
Valencia, Region of Valencia
An absolute must-see is the incredible City of Arts and Sciences, especially the science museum, where kids will have the time of their lives in a totally interactive environment where touching the exhibits is highly recommended! This large site also includes Europe’s largest aquarium, the Oceanogràfic.
Valencia is a thoroughly Mediterranean city where you can enjoy both the past and the future. Another great place to visit is the Bioparc, a zoo without cages. The barriers are so discreet that it feels as if you’re in the same space as the animals.
In Santander, you’ll find the Cantabrian Maritime Museum and some inhabitants of the Cantabrian Sea in its aquarium. If you like animals, you really must visit Cabárceno Natural Park, where children love meeting over 100 species of animals from all over the world, living in semi-freedom. You can travel in time here, too, by visiting the Altamira Neocave, which replicates the ancient paintings of the original cave.
In Teruel, you’ll find the best of each era and something to fascinate all ages. First, there’s Dinópolis, a theme park dedicated to dinosaurs. In the area surrounding the city, there are many castles, which are perfect for a visit and taking a trip back to the days of knights and princesses. Lastly, visit the principal settings where the legend of the lovers of Teruel unfolded ― the kids will adore it.
These are just some places where you can live great adventures with your family, but there are lots more. As you can see, Spain is the perfect place for a family vacation, with activities to suit all tastes and all ages; it’s perfect for enjoying a real get-away.
