Many of us think we know Spain, but no matter how many times you’ve been, there’s also something new and surprising to discover, and some insider secrets to dig out. 

In this blog we’ve shone our spotlight on some of Spain’s most family-friendly islands and best all-inclusive resorts to find out what each offers to those travelling with kids of different ages.


Good for: Gorgeous scenery free of high-rise developments, secluded coves, and gentle family activities including pony-trekking and cycling on traffic-free roads and tracks.
Recommended resort: Mestral and Llebeig Apartments, combining the privacy of self-catering facilities (including kids’ themed suites) with all-inclusive food and drink, two swimming pools and a kids' club in high season.


Good for: Safe sandy beaches with everything from banana boats, pedaloes and SUP paddleboarding to paragliding and scuba-diving, plus lots of family entertainment and fun galore for teens.
Recommended resort: Holiday Village Seaview Ibiza, with childcare for newborns through to 15-year-olds, plus academies, a waterpark and a high-ropes course.


Good for: Miles of white sandy beaches and a fairly constant wind that makes it a hotspot for surfing and windsurfing.
Recommended resort: Hotel Barcelo Fuerteventura Thalasso Spa, with a mini club, activities including archery, mini-golf, volleyball and water polo, and pampering treatments.

Gran Canaria

Good for: Beaches (with banana-boat rides, jet-ski hire, paragliding and more), but also both fertile green and barren lunar landscapes that are fun to explore.
Recommended resort: Hotel IFA Catarina, with a complimentary beach shuttle, a kids’ club, a mini disco and a dedicated children’s pool.


Good for: Year-round sunshine, great beaches, and cable-car rides to Spain’s highest peak – should this be peaks? – a great spot for star-gazing.
Recommended resort: Holiday Village Tenerife, with stage, football and swim academies, plus a high-ropes course.
