As with most beachside holiday resorts, Fuengirola is a fantastic choice for family holidays.
A huge number of the resort’s hotels have an amazing amount of facilities for visiting families, from separate children’s pools and playgrounds as standard to amazingly-ran entertainment programmes and day-cares. Meaning that whether parents want to venture out on a communal daytrip, or have a little time off, they will be well-catered for, whatever they choose.
There are also many opportunities for more wholesome family entertainment, a major one of these being the large water park Aquatico Mijas. The park offers thrills in its many rides for any adrenalin junkies visiting, a particular highlight being the New Diverdragon slide which is sure to get anyone’s blood pumping. The park also has many bars, restaurants and facilities meaning you can spend the whole day there without stressing about anything. Depending on your preference, you can also celebrate children’s birthdays here as well as leaving your sprogs to attend summer camp – a great time they will remember forever.
There are also age-appropriate rides and attractions available for all youngsters. Older kids, and of course young-at-heart adults, can sample the many adrenalin-inducing rides on offer like Adventure River, New Dragondiver and a number of log flumes like Body Ski and the Labyrinth slides. For those a little younger there are the Kiddie Slides in the Jungle area, Lizard Island where they can create their own adventures and of course many shallow pools for them to practice their strokes. When the whole family want to get back together then they can enjoy the Blue Lake for a relaxing time or the Wave Pool if they want to have some excitement. There are also many restaurants and facilities to take care of you throughout the day.
Another family attraction is Bioparc Fuengirola, a local zoo which is equally committed to providing fun for all the family as it is conserving the natural environment of its surrounding areas. Within the zoo you will not only have the opportunity to snap photos of beautiful animals, but also learn about how the park is trying to battle the many challenges the environment is currently facing.
Bioparc Fuengirola is a non-profit organisation which cares deeply about conservation. For this reason, Bioparc is so much more than your average zoo. Despite sharing all the fun qualities that many zoos offer, Bioparc also educates the youngsters about what it takes to conserve nature and why it should be taken care of. Popular attractions in the park are the regionally themed areas like the Africa area, the India-Pacific region and the Isle of Madagascar. In addition to these parts, there are also numerous talks and explanations from expert biologists where the whole family can learn something new.
