This is a great one for the whole family, and the smallest to the tallest will love the different animal shows at the same time as learning about different species and conservation. There is a 4D cinema that explains some of the issues facing marine life in a way that is fun and informative for kids and adults alike.


The Algarve boasts not one but four waterparks all on the western side of the region. No family holiday would be complete without a splash around in the pools and rides on the slides at one of these awesome parks. Take a look at Splash & Slide, Atlantic Park, Aqualand and Aquashow and decide which one, or more than one, takes your fancy.


The Zoomarine is a great place to see a dolphin show, but nothing quite beats seeing these incredible creatures in their natural habitat. There are a few tours that run along the coast to watch the dolphins and whales at play in the sea, and there is a good chance you will spot one of these beautiful animals on your boat trip.

If you are looking for a family holiday packed full of adventure and entertainment for kids and wonderful sights for adults then you need look no further than the Algarve in Portugal. There are many wonderful places to stay right in the heart of the action.
