Organising a family holiday can be stressful, especially if you’ve got young children. Far-flung, exotic destinations might not be an option with the kids in tow, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a well-deserved relaxing and fun holiday. Here are some great child friendly holidays ideas.

Top 3 child friendly holidays - family on a beach

Here are some places to go that are fuss-free, safe and where the kids will be fully-entertained. Take a look at our top three child friendly holiday destinations:

Mallorca, Spain
The Balearic Islands have long been a popular tourist destination for British families with young children, and it’s easy to see why. With a flight time of under three hours, you don’t have to spend hours on end on a plane. Plus, it’s home to plenty of places that can be enjoyed by both adults and kids.

Go to Mallorca for soft, sandy beaches, guaranteed good weather and a culture that warmly welcomes young children. Head to Playa de Muro, where the shallow waters are perfect for kids to paddle in and the dunes will keep them occupied for hours. Also, how about exploring the beautiful Cuevas del Drach caves in Porto Christo with your budding adventurer?

There are plenty of villas and apartments to stay in, which can be found on family-friendly websites like Tots to Travel – perfect for avoiding the stress of finding accommodation where your young family won’t disturb the other guests.

Sardinia, Italy
Head to Sardinia for a fun-filled family adventure holiday. The island is filled with opportunities to go kayaking, biking, caving, diving and snorkelling. Palau, in particular, boasts rare and beautiful landscapes, with its Porto Pollo beach well-known for its water sports. Try snorkelling with your kids, or go swimming with dolphins.

The best time to visit Sardinia is between April and June, or September, when the weather is milder and the crowds are smaller. On trains and ferries, under fours generally travel for free and under 12s usually get a 50% discount.

The Algarve, Portugal
The kids will never be bored in the Algarve in Portugal. One of its biggest attractions is Zoomarine, where the family can spend a full day enjoying everything the park has to offer. This includes spectacular presentations, fairground rides, a 4D cinema and even a centre that rescues and rehabilitates marine animals.

With the region filled with water parks, mini golf courses, karting locations and boat trips, you’ll never be short of activities to keep the kids entertained. Plus, there are plenty of scenic beaches if you’re in need of a relaxing day.
