Vibrant cities and beaches make for the ideal family holiday under the sun

Spain is a great place to take the family on holiday, and you can be there in no time at all as flights from the UK take just two hours.

Spain's countryside, cities, beaches and towns are all extremely diverse, and this diversity translates to its family holidays. Whether you're looking for an active trip full of waterparks and bustling cities, or a peaceful beach-centred holiday under the palm trees, you'll find it here in Spain.

Costa de la Luz in southern Spain is a cultural hotspot, rich in Roman history and full of interesting landmarks, museums and galleries, as well as several laid back family excursions.

For a seaside family getaway Costa Brava boasts long stretches of serene beaches, with sailboats and watersports taking centre stage on the seas.

For a wild holiday full of thrills and adventure, Costa Blanca is your best bet. This bustling region is chock-full of waterparks, zoos and theme parks as well as it's main attraction, Benidorm.

Best family friendly beaches

If you're looking for a beach holiday with classic gold sand and warm water, there are few better places than Spain. This country has a monopoly on perfect coastlines as well as Blue Flag beaches at every turn.

Costa del Sol has 160 kilometres worth of coastline and several beaches to choose from.

Playa del Cristo in Costa del Sol is a Blue Flag winner and faces west, giving it spectacular sunset views. It also has calm waves and a gentle slope into the sea that make it ideal for children.

For a little more action, Benidorm's beach in Costa Blanca is kitted out with swinging bridges, diving boards, rafts and a wet playground. There are also banana boats, beach playgrounds and tons of restaurants all along the sands. Costa Brava translated means 'rugged' or 'wild' and this epitomises its secluded beaches.

Tamariu in Costa Brava is another Blue Flag winning beach and is tucked away from the crowds, giving you and your family some privacy and your own little stretch of sand.

Even though it's a quieter beach, Tamariu still has a handful of shops and restaurants so you can pop in for a bite to eat or do some souvenir shopping.

Best family activities in Spain

For a truly wet and wild holiday, Costa Blanca is the one.

This region has plenty of fun family activities and splashzones to enjoy including Aqualand waterpark, with 15 rides and some of the world's highest slides. The Tera Mitica theme park is also a must-see, with rides for all ages and a 5D cinema to test your senses.

Meanwhile, Costa de la Luz has the Aquopolos waterpark. This family attraction never gets too busy in the summer and has a large range of slides.

Costa del Sol is home to the one of the highest waterslides in Europe, which can be found in its waterpark, which so happens to also be called Aqualand. This family hotspot has a variety of rides and attractions including the Kamikaze slide, with its 22-metre drop.
