Fun in the Algarve is not restricted to the coast. So bring your children and try something different.
Your children will love the water parks, skidding down the slides and having fun in the water. Visit Big One (near Guia), Slide and Splash (Estombar) or Aquashow (Quarteira) with waves pool and exotic birds shows.
If you like marine life, visit Zoomarine, close to Albufeira, where you can spend unforgettable hours in the company of dolphins, seals, sharks and crocodiles.
Animal lovers will also enjoy the zoos.
In Lagos, you have Zoolagos, which boasts 120 types of animal and countless botanical species from all over the planet. At Krazy World, in Silves, see the reptiles and watch the feeding of exotic animals. You can also enjoy pony-trekking or the thrills and spills of the fun fair.
Finally, for those families keen to learn some history, a walk through the remains of copper mines and prehistoric reconstructions at the Cova dos Mouros Mining Park (Alcoutim) is a must.
