Your kids will love family holidays in Faro, exploring Moorish castles from Silves Castle to Castro Marim. Take kids to long sandy Falsia Beach to build sandcastles on your family holiday. Faro is close to several theme parks, so take them for thrilling rides at Slide and Splash, or opt for Zoomarine's collection of sharks and turtles.
Take your kids to Faro Castle in the old town on your family holiday, where they can climb up the battlements and look out to sea. Or spend a few hours in Faro's Live Science Centre, where kids can look at the planets through a telescope and marine life under a microscope. Take children to see dolphin shows at Zoomarine theme park in Guia, or go to AlgarveShopping to buy new swimming costumes for your Faro family holiday.
With the sun shining most of the year in the Algarve, you'll spend most of the time outdoors on your Faro family holidays. Take a boat to Tavira Island for a quiet beach, banana boat rides and canoeing. Or go to Praia da Rocha for windsurfing and jet skiing. For thrills on your family holiday in Faro, brace yourself for the slippery slopes of the black hole at Slide and Splash in Carvoeiro.
Travel west of Faro on your family holidays to see Silves Castle, first built by the Moors to guard the capital of their Algarve kingdom. Then visit Lagos Zoo to see kangaroos and the colourful parrot show. Head east to Vila Real de Santo Antonio on your Faro family holidays for a River Guadiana boat cruise along the Spanish border.
