You can’t beat the Algarve for fun family holidays in the sun. Boasting endless golden shores, hidden beaches, caves to explore and family friendly restaurants, it’s no wonder the country is cited as what will be one of the most visited country in 2017.
There are a variety of options for where to stay. Albufeira is a lively resort, perfect for families with teenagers whilst further down the coast in Alvor it’s a little quieter and ideal for families with young children. Whether you want a self-catering holiday to cut down costs or you can go for an all-inclusive package. Jet2holidays are offering flights to Portugal from just £90.
Tenerife is a favourite for sun seekers, boasting an average temperature of 22 degrees throughout the year so it’s also ideal for a winter sun holiday too if you can’t until the summer arrives!
The largest and most developed of the Canary Islands, Playa de las Americas, Costa Adeje and Puerto de la Cruz are the most popular destinations for family holidays in the south of the island. In the north of the island, you will find Tenerife’s capital, Santa Cruz, perfect for retail therapy and a culture fix with its museums and art galleries, should you get bored of sunbathing!
Tenerife is a family favourite and continues to be a cost-effective option with package holidays starting from £258pp (Monarch) in 2017. There is also vast amounts of self-catering apartment complexes on the Island should you want to keep costs down.

When it comes to accommodation, there’s something to suit all budgets and that is why Greek holidays are always top of the list of affordable summer holidays.
From self-catering apartments to package holiday options at beach-side hotels with swimming pools and water slides to keep younger children occupied, there’s plenty of ways to keep the cost of your family holiday down in the Greek sunshine!
Majorca remains of the most popular holiday destinations for British holiday-makers thanks to its stunning family-friendly beaches, sultry Spanish heat and fun nightlife. The flight-time is also short and sweet, perfect for families with young children!
