Choosing to go on holiday with a family is not the same as traveling as a couple or as a solo tourist, and it is important not only to consider safety but also that there are enough activities to keep both adults and children content.
One of the best ways to guarantee that all goes well is to opt for all inclusive packages that will guarantee minimum stress when it comes to meal- and bed-times, with many of the best all inclusive family resorts in Europe offering great levels of security too so Mum and Dad can relax about taking their kids abroad to a new destination.
The first country that is great for a family visit is mainland Spain; the advantages of going to this area include the fact that flights are short from the UK -meaning that children won’t get too restless during the journey – and the fact that this area is tailored to tourists, so you will never be short of amenities and facilities nearby, catering to all different tastes and budgets.
Experts recommend the Costa Brava for families, as there are plenty of activities to do here without the rowdy atmosphere that can often be associated with Brits abroad in Spain. This particular area of the country also features some beautiful beaches, which are brilliant for sunbathing as much as building sandcastles and paddling in the sea.
Spain, of course, offers some of the best all inclusive family resorts on its islands, including Menorca, Mallorca and the Canary Islands. Care should be taken, however, to book places that avoid the ‘wild’ nightlife of some of these areas, in order to ensure the safety of children and get a peaceful night’s sleep.
The north of Mallorca is an excellent place to take the children, far from Magaluf on the west of the island with its drinking and all-night partying. Similarly, Tenerife and Lanzarote both offer some calmer areas that are ideal for a family getaway, balancing beauty and tranquillity with culture and a range of fun activities.
Greece is another ideal country to visit for anyone looking for the best all inclusive family resorts in Europe. There are many low cost deals available in this country right now, making it perfect for a budget getaway with plenty of sun, sea, sand and tasty local seafood dishes.
One of the Greek islands that is great for families is Rhodes, with many of its towns offering clean beaches and plenty of amenities, without a wild nightlife or any major safety fears. There are also several children’s play areas to keep younger families entertained, and historical and cultural attributes for the adults that like to explore.
Other islands worth looking at for some of the best all inclusive family resorts in Greece include Corfu, Naxos and Kos, all of which can offer a great, safe environment for those with children who are looking to balance convenience and security with plenty of activities and a stunning destination for a relaxing break.
Portugal is also an excellent choice for British travellers looking for the best all inclusive family resorts in Europe; like Spain, this country isn’t too far from the UK, meaning shorter flights and fewer travel-related hassles. One area that is particularly great for adults with kids is the Algarve, with the quieter part being the eastern end of the region.
Whether in the east of the west of the Algarve, those staying in the best all inclusive family resorts in the area can enjoy abundant outdoor activities such as swimming, mountain biking and dolphin-watching trips off the coast.
