Going on holiday with children means you get to indulge your childish side! Holidaying in Valencia with children is the ultimate fun way to see the city. Valencia is a magical place for any age group but it is especially suitable when you are looking for a family holiday in Spain or a family holiday abroad. From the stunning historical to space-age-looking architecture that can really get the imagination going, to the amazing opportunities to get to know the Mediterranean culture, it makes happy memories for children, parents and grandparents.
When going on holiday with children in tow, you have the perfect excuse (if you needed one!) to get up close to some magnificent animals and enjoy at least one ice cream a day! If you are ready to start planning your family holiday, Valencia’s ‘must sees’ on the Visit Valencia website are a good place to start.
The Bioparc is an exciting experience and educational at the same time. It is an innovative zoo, designed to feel like there are no barriers between you and the animals. By making animals and humans get so close, the park aims to promote the need to protect different species. Visitors can see hundreds of different species, from leopards to elephants, ostriches to giraffes and lions to lemurs. Make sure your camera battery is charged for this day out!
Then there are the bike rides and tours that take on a different perspective with little ones involved. You can trust them to point out things you wouldn’t have noticed and maybe even challenge you to a race through the Turia Gardens. Choose from a selection of tours and bike hire companies.
The beaches are full of people of all ages splashing, sunbathing and taking part in organised sports as well as their own games. From beach tennis to boat trips, to shopping for pocket-money mementos at the stalls on the promenade, children will love making the most of Valencia’s golden sands at Las Arenas and Malvarossa beaches, and at El Saler in the Albufera Natural Park, where there is always an impressive amount of wildlife on show.
Families can save money on transport and entry fees to many of Valencia’s attractions by purchasing a Family Valencia Tourist Card. This entitles you to free public transport and includes a booklet of special offers, discounts and a map.
