Viva Zafiro Alcudia Named Best Family Summer Holidays

Supplier: Zafiro Hotels
Location: Spain

Once children are in full-time education, holidays can seem even more important than ever: this is the uninterrupted family time you all crave. What you want is easy-access fun – a house by the sea, manageable waves, organised activities – and straightforward travel, so you can focus on having fun with your family.

Summers when children are reaching the end of primary school and approaching their teens are unique. The children are old enough to take on myriad challenges, whether engaging with a new culture or having a go at a water sport for the first time; they’re also young enough to still think that spending time with just their family is cool. This summer, take on a challenge as a family: try a new destination, or sport, together.

Below, you’ll find our experts’ favourite summer holidays for children aged 4-12
