Madeira Theme Park
The island of Madeira is a great spot for families. Drive 30 minutes from the capital of Funchal and you’ll land in Madeira Theme Park. It’s like a bite-sized look at the island capital — you’ve got traditional Santana houses, mini botanical gardens and a working water mill. Adrenalin junkies don’t miss out, either — there’s an extreme sports zone and rides, too.
Porto Santo Island
Apparently footballer Cristiano Ronaldo spends the odd weekend on Porto Santo Island, which is a good enough reference for us. It’s a top spot for families who prefer to get away from it all. Step away from the luxury hotels of Vila Baleira, and you’ll be tripping over footstep-free beaches.
If you’re travelling with tots in tow, why not consider a family holiday to Portugal?
