Planning a Family Trip to The Algarve? 3 Things To Consider For Your Holiday

It’s that time of the year when many parents begin to consider family trip destinations for their holiday. Summertime is one of the busiest times of the year for families to head abroad as children break up from school for Summer holidays. More specifically, we’ve noticed the Algarve is a hot spot for families in the sunny seasons and there are plenty of reasons why that is.

If you’re also planning your family trip to the Algarve this year, there will be some considerations that you’ll need to make. This is so you can plan your holiday beforehand and ensure you make the most of your family trip without any stress. If so, here are 3 things in particular that we think you should consider.

Where to Stay

First and foremost, situating yourself in the ideal place to stay is essential. You wouldn’t want to be too far away from the popular tourist areas, but also not too close that it keeps you and the family up at night.

There are a variety of options when it comes to places to stay for your family trip. Perhaps you want to spend time solely with the family, in which case we have a range of luxury Algarve properties to choose from that may be the perfect place for you. Alternatively, family resorts are another option that allows the family to enjoy everything that Algarve has to offer. From beach-side resorts to family focused resorts, there’s plenty of choice.

Family-Friendly Places to Visit on Your Family Trip

You’ll want to make sure that every member of your family enjoys their holiday to the fullest, so family friendly places will be high on your list to visit. Luckily, there are a variety of places that you can visit for the whole family to enjoy. The Algarve prides itself on ensuring there’s something to do for everyone.

We’ve written a blog on the family friendly places for you to visit in the Algarve. One place you should definitely consider is taking a visit to the Lagos Zoo where you can witness some elegant animals and creatures for the family to discover and see. From turtles to different types of birds, there are plenty of animals for the family to enjoy and the children to keep occupied.


It’s well-known that the Algarve has some of the most beautiful beaches to witness. A day at the beach is a perfect way to relax and chill-out whilst the kids can head into the water or build sandcastles beside the sun loungers.

However, there’s more to the Algarve than just the beaches. Activities come in plenty at the Algarve, so you can be sure that you’ll be entertained throughout your family trip. Perhaps you have a few thrill seekers in the family. No problem, as there’s activities such as scuba diving and surfing available. Away from the beach, you can also consider horseback riding and hiking, with over 30 trails available to explore.
