Family Holidays to Costa Brava

Costa Brava's resorts were some of the first in Europe to be developed with tourists in mind, and remain well-equipped, family-focused places to holiday.

Lloret de Mar gets the family seal of approval

Situated in the northeast of Spain, Costa Brava is around a two-hour flight from UK airports. Once you arrive at Girona Airport it will only take between half an hour and an hour to get to your resort, so you and the kids can be in the pool in no time.

Highlighting its family focus, Lloret de Mar has been awarded the Family Tourist Destination seal of the Catalan Tourism Agency, as a high number of hotels and restaurants in Lloret de Mar provide facilities including highchairs, cots, kids' menus and entertainers. For a laid-back family holiday, Malgrat de Mar runs at a slightly slower pace, but still has loads of family-friendly restaurants, parks and a 14th-century fortress and old town for the explorers.

The lifestyle in Pineda de Mar, to the west, is so laid back it's horizontal. You can lie on the beach and look up at the castle or travel to Barcelona by car in under an hour for its famous zoo, stunning fountain show and exquisite architecture.

Best family friendly beaches

Starting with the most action-packed beaches in Costa Brava, Lloret de Mar's main beaches, Lloret and Fenals, each have a summer sports zone and miniclub with inflatables, paddling pools and supervised activities to keep the kids amused all day long. Both beaches are Blue Flag certified and backed by plenty of great restaurants and kiosks.

Malgrat de Mar has three beaches stretching across more than four kilometres, with a central beach, one for watersports, and a final Blue Flag number. All three beaches are connected by a single promenade, so you don't have to stick to just one beach and can wander along whenever you fancy a change of scenery. Alternatively, you could try one of Tossa de Mar's three beaches, such as the Platja Grand, which is backed by magnificent rocky cliffs and a perfect starting point for boat trips.

Best family activities in Costa Brava

One of the largest waterparks in Europe, WaterWorld in Lloret de Mar is accessible from wherever you stay in Costa Brava and has over 20 amazing rides. For more in the way of active pursuits visit either Arbre Aventura natural park for sports activities and rope courses or neighbouring Gnomo Park that has gnome-themed play for younger kids.

In the centre of Lloret de Mar an open museum is set up with signs that guide you around town to discover places of historic, cultural and natural interest. They include the Maritime Museum, Santa Clotilde Gardens beside the sea and Sant Joan Castle.
