Spanish market

One of the main reasons you have probably chosen Spain is because it is so child friendly. The Spanish culture is very family orientated and it is rare for children not to be welcomed into bars and restaurants. You will often see children out late with parents, crèches in supermarkets and play areas and parks where you can keep an eye on your children whilst relaxing and enjoy a coffee or even some wine and tapas!

Beaches such as La Cala have summer lifeguards for extra protection and swimming pools have to have either a childrens pool or shallow end.

Most travel agents, internet cafes etc… will book day excursions if you do not wish to drive, but those listed here are an easy drive, train or bus ride away.
