Lanzarote is a great family holiday destination. With year round sunshine, great beaches and lots of facilities for children, it has been a firm favourite with Irish holidaymakers for many years. For a fun family day out try the waterpark or the popular Rancho Texas animal park. Read my blog for more things to do with kids in Puerto del Carmen.

 

 

The old town of Puerto del Carmen has some great restaurants which cater really well for children. There is a playground at the harbour so you can enjoy some after dinner drinks, while the kids play safely in front of you. There are also plenty of high street stores, with prices on average, 25% less than at home. For more information on Lanzarote, you can read my blog by clicking here.

Menorca, The Perfect Family Holiday Destination, 30th July, 2ad & 2ch, from €1876!

family

Sheltered cove beaches, captivating harbours and family friendly resorts. Is Menorca the perfect family holiday destination?

 

Still relatively unspoilt, Menorca retains all the charm and character you would expect from a Spanish island but thankfully, without the high rise blocks. The laid back atmosphere is perfect for a family holiday with cafes, bars and restaurants being the main sources of evening entertainment, rather than discos and clubs. Most of the family coves have great beach bars serving refreshing drinks and delicious snacks and with an average summer temperature of only 25 degrees, you could quite easily spend the full day on one of Menorca’s stunning beaches. The main holiday resorts also have a great choice of eateries which cater exceptionally well for families and many offer stunning sea views.

menorca the perfect family holiday destination

Considering its neighbours are Majorca and Ibiza, it is hard to believe that Menorca has still managed to maintain a much slower pace of development. Recognised by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve because of the diversity of its landscape, it is the perfect mix of a cultural interior with cosmopolitan coastline. Stunning harbours combine with architectural ruins and clear blue seas, it really is a true find. There is wide selection of historic towns to explore including the capital, Mahon, the fishing village of Fornells and the old walled town of Ciudadella. The flat terrain lends well to cycling and walking trails so although the island overall has a relaxed vibe, it is also suitable for families looking for an active holiday. Water-sports are plentiful at the beaches too.

menorca the perfect family holiday destination

Sunway Holidays have a wide selection of accommodation options available. Prices for a seven night family package on the 30th of July start from €1876, based on 2 adults and 2 children in the Los Lentiscos apartments or €2276 for 2 adults and 2 children in the Roc Lago Park apartments. Highly rated on tripadvisor, the Roc Lago Park are a great family property that allows you free access into the water park next door for the duration of your stay. Located beside the pretty marina in Cala’n Bosch, their central location ensures you are close to the beach and the resort centre.

menorca the perfect family holiday destination

The flight times are perfect too with no awkward 6 am starts! The direct flight leaves Dublin every Sunday at 14:50 and lands back in Dublin at 21.35pm. All Sunway package holidays include flights, accommodation, transfers, 20kg checked baggage per person and NO hidden extras!
