When it comes to family-friendly destinations, Spain frequently comes out on top. It’s quick to get to, which makes it ideal for families with smaller children, it’s affordable and it boasts fantastic weather, particularly in the summer.

So, if you’re searching for your next family getaway, Spain is definitely a country to consider. Here, you’ll discover some of the top places to head to for the perfect family-friendly holiday.

What are the best family-friendly regions? 

The majority of areas in Spain are great for families. However, some regions do offer more facilities and family-friendly attractions than others. If you’re looking to head to the Mediterranean part of the country, you’ll find Catalonia and Andalucía to be two of the best to explore with the family. If you’re looking for more of a city break, Barcelona is a fantastic choice with plenty of attractions to suit the entire family.

You can enhance your stay by booking a family villa through a company such as Villa Plus. This gives you the privacy and space you need when travelling with the kids.

Enjoy family-friendly beaches

The beaches in Spain are well-equipped for families; particularly along the Mediterranean coastline. If you head to Costa Brava, you’ll find many of the beaches are actually sheltered by beautiful coves. Many of the country’s beaches also benefit from calm, shallow waters.

The only thing you’ll really need to worry about is how busy the beaches can get in summer. However, there are some quitter beaches you and the kids can enjoy if you don’t like to be amongst large crowds.

Some of the best beaches include:

  • Menorca – Even in summer the beaches remain quiet along the north coast
  • Playa de la Concha – Known to be Spain’s most accessible beach
  • Aiguablava – A beautiful, sheltered cove in Costa Brava

It’s worth researching the different beaches before you go so you know which ones are the best to head to.

Cuisine the entire family will love

Another reason Spanish holidays are popular with families is because of its great cuisine. Most of the restaurants in the country are welcoming towards families and offer up a great varied menu. There’s something to suit all cuisines and as the food isn’t really spicy, you should find even your kids enjoy it.

Overall, Spain is a fantastic destination to head to with the family. Whether you’re seeking a relaxing beach getaway or a fun-packed city break, there’s something to suit you and the kids.
