child playing on the beach

Our top Algarve activities for children in 2023   

When it comes to a family getaway, it can take time to identify the best activities to take the children to. With so much to fit into a holiday itinerary, it’s essential to plan ahead so the kids will have plenty of memories too.

At SandyBlue, our aim is to always keep guests informed of the best places to visit and the popular activities. We are not just a villa rental specialist – we are Algarve specialists. With the upcoming half-term break, we thought it was a great time to share our team’s top picks for family fun that the children will enjoy.

SandyBlue’s choices for a day out with the kids

There is so much variation in what you can do. From exploring nature to exciting adventures, the Algarve instils awe and wonder no matter your age.

Whenever our team is asked about their favourite thing to do, a common answer is a day on one of the islands, particularly Armona, Culatra or Farol. It doesn’t get any better than watching the children play on the beach in a hidden paradise.

The Benagil Cave is another top pick. It is featured on so many ‘things to see’ lists and, of course, this list is no exception. Boat tours can be organised to tour this natural wonder, while the sea cave really will fascinate the kids … and probably the adults too.

For further exploration, Buggy Safari is a safe and comfortable way to do so. With many tour options available, tourists can enjoy looking out for local wildlife, stopping for delicious food and making lovely memories as a family.

Located in Vale do Lobo, ParTee Family Park welcomes all families for a full day of fun and excitement. There is a playground and kid’s entertainment for the younger children, while the 18-hole mini golf course offers a competitive yet hilarious challenge.

Finally, sometimes it is simply about quality time without finding a specific venue or activity. Packing a picnic and heading to one of the many glorious beaches for the day is simple yet blissful. The sound of the sea and laughter is great for the soul.

The Algarve awaits

Be it a summer getaway or an Autumn half-term retreat, excitement and family fun await. With more families choosing the Algarve, we can expect the region to continue in its growth and offer even more activities to choose from.

At SandyBlue, our guest services team is always on hand to help incoming guests plan activities and always point them in the right direction!
