Not just for sun-seekers and beach-lovers, Portugal is also a fabulous destination for an active family holiday, especially if you love the water.

Ideal for those with kids aged 8+ (younger children can come but may not be able to join in all the activities), this trip on the stunning Alentejo coast with its Atlantic beaches comprises no more than 16 people, under the helm of an experienced activity guide. 

You'll immerse yourself in exciting activities including surfing, abseiling, canoeing, cycling and orienteering. It's all very flexible, though – there are five activities to take part in, all optional, plus the chance to sign up to explore some of the activities in greater depth during one free day.  

When you're not out and about being active in wonderful natural locations, you can relax by the pool or on the beach (both hotels offer direct access to the sand) as well as explore the authentic cafés and family amenities of the local resort centre a 10-minute stroll away.
