The Region of Valencia introduces Tour & Kids the new 100% family-friendly certification for resorts, accommodation, activities, attractions and events all over this beachy and beautiful region of South East Spain.
Think Valencia and you probably think of the city. Which is a great start, because it’s very impressive, remarkably historic and sits on the lovely south east coast of Spain, so it’s also sunny and warm for an unfair number of months every year. But Valencia’s part of the much wider Valencia region which includes quite a bit of the Costa Blanca, pulls in legends like Benidorm and Alicante, as well as covering swathes of dramatic countryside, heaps of intriguing towns and villages, not to mention a healthy share of the Mediterranean.
It’s always been a much loved family holiday region, not least of all because it’s so easy to reach from the UK and there’s always plenty to do and see with kids, year round. So you might not be too surprised to learn that the Region of Valencia Tourist Board has now made its outstanding family-friendly reputation official and created the Region of Valencia Product Club for Family Holidays, also known as, Tour & Kids.
Demonstrating the region’s commitment to fantastic family holidays, Tour & Kids covers everything from family-friendly destinations and events to attractions, accommodation, festivals and, of course, the fascinating city of Valencia itself. So, whenever you see something labelled Tour & Kids by the Region of Valencia Tourist Board, you know instantly it’s excellent quality, worked hard to get certification and is 100% family-friendly, guaranteed.
Tour & Kids makes pulling off a great family holiday in Valencia a whole lot easier. Right from the start you know each certified destination ticks all the family-friendly boxes so nothing’s left to chance. Which obviously doesn’t dilute the adventure of a new and exciting places, it just means you can focus on the fun side of things, spend more time together as a family actually doing stuff rather than searching for stuff to do. And it gives you a lot more freedom, since Tour & Kids is dedicated to supplying you with as much local knowledge and helpful information as you’re ever likely to need.
Legendary beach resorts like Benidorm, Benicàssim and Gandia are ideal for kids of all ages and particularly good for older one and teens. Inland, outdoorsy families have everything from hiking and mountain biking to river kayaking alongside authentic atmosphere and loads of charm in places such as Cofrentes and Ayora. For just the right mix of seaside and town liveliness the likes of Peñiscola, Castellón, Altea or Vinaròs are good picks. And if you want your beachy break a little more peaceful for mixed age group kids, look to Calpe with its pedestrianised streets, safe and sandy beaches, stunning views and charming old town. Or think about Oropesa del Mar for much the same reasons only the with the addition of The Coastal Greenway: the lovely bike-friendly route from Oropesa to Benicàssim, which even the littlest of cyclists can manage.
At the moment 20 destinations and 46 companies across the Valencia Region are Tour & Kids certified. And it’s worth remembering that you’re never far from the coast here, so even if you opt for a base in the beautiful countryside, days out on the beach are still ridiculously easy to do.
