Deciding on where to take the family for an activity break this summer can be simple with a little bit of planning and a beautiful destination. We love Portugal for its stunning coastline, affordability, and multitude of activities available for the whole family- regardless of ability or age. So to help you decide on where you will be alternating between having activity fun and relaxing, here are our two favourite activity destinations in Portugal:
- 1- Lagos
If there is one theme in Lagos, Portugal, it's the water... there are so many activities to do that everyone in the family will find something that they love. If going for a week, mix and match your water activities... for example, spend three days learning to surf at the town's Maia Praia beach, or explore the spectacular National Reserve parkland beaches surrounding the town.
- 2- Ericeira
The beautiful surfing town of Ericeira is one of only three World Surf Reserves... and with 9 surf beaches within 8km of the town it's little wonder why. So naturally if you're taking your family on an activity holiday in Ericeira, it is an ideal place to either improve your surfing, or help the kids begin to learn to surf.
