If you're planning a family holiday overseas, you'll want to make sure you can keep everyone in the family happy and entertained. As well as facilities and activities for all the children, whatever their age, it's important to remember to ensure an enjoyable holiday for the parents too.
Family friendly hotels can go a long way in ensuring that everyone in the family has a great holiday. Children's clubs and organised activities where children can play safely, babysitting facilities, on-site restaurants and bars, leisure facilities, safe access to the beaches are all important features to look for in a family hotel.
The Algarve is a fantastic destination for a family sun holiday. The area is the most popular tourist region in Portugal, which is no surprise, given its perfect sandy beaches, gorgeous coastal scenery and pretty inland towns and villages. The weather too is ideal, with sunny cloudless days throughout the summer months. Sea breezes keep the temperatures pleasant and the evenings and nights fresh. It's definitely wise to bring a light jacket or cardigan. Spring and autumn are great times to visit if you want to avoid the crowds, though the sea can be a bit nippy outside the summer months.
