Spain, a favourite tourist destination for visitors from all over the world, is an ideal place to take family holidays. The paradores throughout the country are reformed castles, fortresses or palaces that have been turned into luxury hotels that offer activities for all ages to enjoy. Two family favourites guaranteed to give your family an unforgettable holiday are Parador Benicarló and Parador Mojácar.
Parents often rave about how wonderful their holidays were, and how much their children enjoyed playing on the beaches or by the pool. And with several luxurious saunas, parents can also catch a break and unwind.
Exclusive Parador Benicarló is located along the Costa del Azahar, which has long been a popular destination for tourists seeking a peaceful beach holiday. The seaside near Benicarló is famously calm and quiet, and provides a great escape for young families. Parents can nap on their beach towels while their children build sand castles and run along the shores, enjoying Spain's sunny weather.
This parador also has a seasonal swimming pool, which children love playing in all afternoon. If anyone in the family enjoys tennis, they can go to the hotel's many tennis courts to play their favourite sport.
The hotel offers a special area just for children to play in. Parents can enjoy local wines, while their children can drink fresh orange juice, made with locally-grown oranges.
Another fabulous destination for a family holiday is Parador Mojácar. It is located right on the beach of Mojácar, which offers fun and entertainment for the whole family. Both parents and children alike will delight in an afternoon at this amazing beach. Once sufficiently worn out, stretch out on the beach towels and nap with the gentle sea breeze blowing.
Prefer swimming pools over the beach? The hotel's luxurious outdoor pool is ideal for both novice and expert swimmers. Surrounded by beautiful palm trees, the natural scenery provides the perfect amount of shade. Of course, there are also many lovely spots to take a nap under a parasol.
Fun touristy activities in the area include the Macenas Castle, the Santa Maria fortified church, the Watch Towers of Perulico, the Main Gate of the city and the "Casa Torero". Adventurous families might enjoy hiking to the caves of Almanzora to see its famous centuries-old rock formations.
