Salou in the Costa Dorada is a great destination for families and is usually an inexpensive choice. There are two sandy beaches here and the crystal clear shallow waters are perfect for toddlers and younger children. Salou does get very busy in the summer so it’s not the place to choose if you prefer a quieter resort however the resort has a cosmopolitan feel with a good mix of tourists from all over Europe.

Sitges is a bohemian resort that is popular with gay travelers – however the resort is also a friendly place for all kinds of traveler including families.

For a quiet and traditional Spanish family getaway Tamariu on the Costa Brava is the perfect choice.

Sanlúcar de Barrameda is a small city in the Cadiz province in Andalucía.

Marbella is often described as Spain’s St Tropez and certainly the rich and fashionable seem to flock here in their droves. Marbella’s newer area has everything you would expect from a destination such as this; high-class restaurants, five star hotels, shopping opportunities and a cool night scene where you can dance all night if that’s what you want.
